So there we were,
3/4 of our journey competed....500 miles yet to go
on our trip to New Mexico to see our daughter and son in law and forth coming baby,
when, 5:00 in the morning, we got a call....yes,
Anna was in labor!
Straightaway we hopped in the suburban and drove, drove, drove.....
arriving 40 minutes after the newest grand baby was born!
I was allowed into the birthing room right away to meet this newest blessing,
help wash her, measure her, and cut the cord.
Scott was perfectly at ease with the sweet little bundle,
...I was impressed.
made her way safely into the world that Monday,
surprising us all at 8 lbs 2 oz
and having plenty of dark hair, which was a great relief and delight to her mama.
Needless to say, we all fell completely head over heels for this little girl.
Oh, My!! What a darling!!!
I cannot possibly look upon these pictures without a little squeal escaping-
she is SO PRECIOUS!!!
With eyes of wonder,
all of the family stared and stared at her, never getting our fill of the wee one.
Thus we spent the next 5 days with them,
holding and staring at this amazing little person named Mary.
All too soon it was time for us to make the trip home.
Leaving our sweet little New Mexico family was easier said than done,
but we contented ourselves with the thankfulness of a safe and healthy birth,
that Anna is recovering very well,
that Scott is such a natural at being a daddy,
and that we had the opportunity to be there
to meet this fabulous and amazing granddaughter!
Praising the Lord for Mary Joy!
