Hold Your Head High!

Look at that baby girl hold her head up! Pretty good for a 12-day old!

McKayla's first scrapbook club

Ashley & McKayla went to scrapbook club with me last night.
I hope she likes to scrapbook with Grandma!

Just a video from today!

I took pictures of McKayla, today, in her little ducky outfit. I decided to take a quick video, too.

She goes home, tomorrow :( What am I going to do?

It's going to fast!

I'm sitting here with baby in my lap. She's wanting to be held, tonight. That's okay with me! I only have 4 more days with her & then they go back home :( . What will I do? I'm not sure! I probably won't see her, again for a month. I'm sure that month will go very slowly.

We've been so busy this past week. Just trying to get out of the house to go to the store is a chore! It seems we get baby ready & then try to get ourselves ready & by the time we are ready she needs changed or fed. I had really forgotten about that!

Today we needed to go to Jacksonville. It was after 2 p.m. before we finally left. Her Mommy & Daddy went to J'ville last night for a date night before Daddy goes back home, tomorrow. After they ate supper they went to Wal-Mart to buy a few things for baby. They had received several gifts of money & gift certificates. Somewhere along the way dd's wallet was either stolen or lost. I guess in the long run it was stolen, because whomever found it did not replace it. Dd was so upset. She had so many gift certificates in there. She was so worn out & tired, so that did not help. She was beside herself. The manager said they would try to look over the tapes & see if they could see anything. She checked out at the register right by the door & then waited by the door for her hubby to come pick her up, so somewhere in that short of time, she lost her wallet. I hope they can come up with something on the tapes. So, anyway we had to go over & file a police report, today.

Tomorrow we are eating at the church camp spaghetti lunch. In the afternoon we will have a house full of guest coming to meet the baby.

I just can't believe how fast the past week has gone! Baby is now 9 days old!!!! It amazes me.

Here's my newest favorite picture!

A few more!

Yes, I'm obsessed with this baby!

Are you ready for more pictures?

I am!

I took the first picture of her when we were leaving the hospital.

The second picture is her first trip to Wal-Mart photo! We had to stop every 1 1/2 hours on our drive home, so that dd could walk around. So, on one of our stops I went to develope new pictures.

The third picture is the first time she was in her crib. She looks so tiny in it!

The fourth picture is of her in her fish outfit, just because she's cute, lol!

The last picture is in her little swing. The fish outfit just happened to be on, but worked perfect with the swing.

One more!

DD just sent this picture to me. I couldn't resist showing it!

She said they couldn't keep her covered up so they put a sleeper on her!

Last one for tonight!

This is one of my favorites.

Funny thing we noticed this evening. She must not like her toes covered up! She kept squirming out of the blankets!!! It didn't matter how tight you wrapped her up she had those fingers & toes out of that blanket in just a few minutes. She would be fussy until she got them out!

She also sucks on her right index finger quite often!

Better video

Ignore the talking, I couldn't stop them, lol.


That is one dark video! I had no idea it was that dark. Well, at least you can hear her beautiful cry!

She's here!

Mom had to have c-section because she was breech. All is fine & she is finally here.
She is so beautiful!
Here's a short video clip & then I'll post some pictures.

Not today, either!

I think I'm being taunted!!!

This morning one of the ladies in the office I work in came in first thing & announced she is a new Grandma!
Her little one was due to be delivered next Wednesday by c-section. I kept saying yesterday that I was just sure she would have a grandbaby before I did. I just didn't think last night, rofl!

Maybe tonight?

Not today, either!
I did, however, see 3 babies today that were born on April 11th & lady told me that her grandson was born on April 11th!

Yes, I did think this was a bit strange that I saw all these little ones today!

I guess McKayla just didn't want to share her birthday with all those babies!

No baby!

Just heard from our friend, Sherie. Her sil was due on April 24th. She had her baby on April 11th!!!! What's up with that? She had her baby on dd's due date! I sure hope McKayla doesn't wait until Pam's due date to arrive!!!

Grand Daughter is due tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the big day! DD is due with her first baby & our first grandchild.
I'm sure the chances are pretty slim that this little one knows tomorrow is her day.
I can't wait to see her & hold her. I can't wait until she is here safe & healthy, we pray.
So, dd hurry up & have this little one, okay?!?!
