A Beautiful Granddaughter

We are so happy and excited that a sweet little girl has joined our family. Anna Luella was born Saturday, July 5th, and she is so beautiful! Both her and her Mommy and Daddy are resting now as it was a long ordeal for them. We had happened to be in the area at a belated Fourth of July get-together so while we were close by, late last night we stopped in and saw our littlest member. Since we got home around 3 o'clock in the morning we all slept in but it was a sleep of happiness and relief as finally she was born with a C-section. Needless to say this Grandma will be staying with her for a few days after she gets home to help out as much as I can.

Below is a card I made from a stamp set I won which was designed by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K. Designs. It came at a most appropriate time and I feel so blessed to have had that set given to me. The set is called Wee Tees.


Inside the card this is what I wrote: Hi Mommy and Daddy, I have been wanting to meet you for quite some time now. I am so happy to be here with you today! Thanks so very much for having me and may the Lord bless our family. Love, Anna

Grandma Verna had to help her out with the card and I would love it if someday she would love to stamp with Grandma and create even more cards. Heaven knows! Grandma has lots of stamping supplies she an share.

Anyway, I wanted to share the news and I am feeling very blessed with our new little bundle of joy! Thanks to all who stop in and look and share in our good news.

God bless,
Verna

CONGRATS!! Your card is so darn adorable. Don't you just love grand children? My almost 3 year old does stamp with me. I have to guard my supplies! And we had a new addition a month ago. Enjoy!!

Awww, Verna, you are the greatest Grandma ever! How sweet to write that card from the baby.
Reading those words.. reminded me of my working in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). On Mother's day, we would make a card from the baby to Mom, and hand print something that a baby might say....it was so well received by the parents, we also did it for Father's Day. Isn't it grand to know that something that small, can fill a heart with joy? I loved doing it, and so did the other nurses. Hey, we tried to make things less stressful than it was. Those love notes were taken home, and, put into the baby's scrapbook! How cool, right?
You, my friend, would have fit right in....LOL
Congratulations to YOU and, your whole family, and thank goodness you have a healthy little baby girl, who will be so loved. May God bless all of you!
What a great July 4th present!!! Woohoo
