IT'S A GIRL!!

Hubby became a grandpa for the second time.
Little Grace came into the world this afternoon, weighing 8 lb. and 4 oz.

Mother, Father (Hubby's son), big brother, and baby are all doing well.

They live clear across the country in B.C.
So it may be quite a while before we actually see this new little bundle of joy.
Luckily we live in the electronic age. We will catch our first glimpse of her via digital photography.

A time to celebrate!

Congratulations! This is the time when you can appreciate living in the electronic age--I'm sure there will be lots of photos and video sent your way:)

Wendy, how wonderful! Babies bring so much joy with them. I am sure you are both feeling estatic. With internet you will be able to watch her grow almost like being there. But I do hope you get to see her in person soon. Being a grandparent is one of the best jobs in the world! :)

Wendy said...

Hi Annette, thank-you. We can't wait to see pictures too!

Hi Grammy - thank-you too.

Hi Anne - ah yes, we do rejoice the good times. At this stage of life we seem to be right smack in the middle - death on one side and birth on the other. I guess that's where "middle age" got it's name.

Hi Bear Naked - isn't it wonderful? I don't know what I'd do without the internet and digital cameras! We'd be left in teh dark!

Hi Rose - not sure about videos, but pics - yes!

Hi Beckie - right on, as usual. Being a grandparent is wonderful. I never imagined!

Hi Dear Wendy!

This is great news! A little girl was born into your family. And please, please, get those photos and show us.

Your heart must be full right now :o) I haven't held a baby in sooooo long. Ahhh, Johnson's Baby Powder.

Hugs and Congratulations!

Congratulations, a little princess to love and cuddle! And isn't it great that we have the wonders of the internet so we can keep in touch and share pictures.
Grace is such a pretty name... my g-g-g-g-g-g-grandmother was called Grace!
