It’s A Girl!

My Granddaughter is Here!

Just a quick post today to let everyone know that our first grandchild arrived safely into this world Monday morning. Both Mom and Dad (my son and his wife) are doing very well….and my granddaughter….well, she is absolutely PERFECT! I put together a quick video of pictures for you to see….

Welcome To The World, Hanna Joanne!

A big congrats to my son, Trey and his wife, Carissa, on the birth of their daughter, Hanna Joanne. I was blessed with the opportunity to be right there in the delivery room when Hanna was born…..and I can’t seem to find the right words to express the miracle I experienced.

Yes, I’m speechless (write that down…it doesn’t happen often).

Here’s a picture of the delivery team:

And here’s the precious results of our efforts
(OK, Carissa, the Mom, did all the work…we just cheered her on):

And here’s a video of my pictures:

Everyone is tired, but happy and healthy…and so, so blessed!

I’ll be back to full-speed sometime soon, but just wanted to share the miracle with all of you!

WendyN November 30, 2009 at 3:30 pm

Jennifer….I can relate! I too became a new grandma this year and got to be with my daughter all through the delivery so I know how you feel. It truly is an amazing…amazing miracle! I know what you mean when you say you can’t seem to get enough of her. And guess what? That feeling never ends! I absolutely love being a grandma as I’m sure you do too! Congratulations!!

Hi Jennifer and congratulations on being a grandma. My niece just had her first child at an even 8lbs; so I’m seeing lots of pictures.

The other reason I am writing is because I’ve started and e-book and I’ve read that you love to use open Office to convert your writings into pdf format.

I am wondering if you have posted any tutorials on how to put together tutorials as my e-book will contain tutorials.

I’m having a lot of trouble with ‘Paint.’ How do you get the great BIG RED ARROWS?

Thanks for writing OWM; it’s great information.

She is so adorable. I know her grandma is fixing to spoil her something rotten:)

Congratulations Jennifer!

Anne December 3, 2009 at 1:39 am

You are Waaaaay to young to be a Grandma! But isn’t it great? You’re still young enough to still remember how to diaper and feed the little one! LOL

Seriously though, grandkids are the best! I have 11, so I should know! Congratulations, and may this be the first of many such bundles of joy!

Julie December 3, 2009 at 8:59 pm

Congrats an welcome little Hannah!

Nette December 7, 2009 at 6:34 am

Hey Jen!

I always read your emails, but don’t come to your blog that often, so here’s a belated “Congratulations!”

Dana December 10, 2009 at 3:39 am

Your grandaugter is a cutie pie. Does your daughter have any postpatum support? I’ve studied to be a Labor Support Doula and the postpatum period was covered in my traning. So I know that having a support system is crucial for a new mom.If you guys have any questions on ts early phase of new parenthood/grandparenthood don’t hesitate to email me with your questions and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Kathie Moore December 10, 2009 at 4:57 am

Many Congrats to the new Mommy & Daddy and what will that little precious one call you? hummmmmmm? Congrats to you also Jennifer. Loved the pics & that video, made me want to cry!!! I too had the pleasure of being involved w/ one sister and being a witness to a “birth”, you are so right, there are no words to describe all of that and emotions. Maybe priceless will do. She is just beautiful, bet she has some hair under that hat huh? ……………..Since you are the royal grandmother, might you be starting and continuing a photo gallery/mini blog/video site……um so that all the mothers’ out here can enjoy those growing stages too? Watch out, they grow tooooooo fast and time slips away. Thank you for sharing with all of us. She truly is sent from heaven. Enjoy all the hugs you can squeeze in!

Kathie……..a close neighbor over here in MS!!!!
