Hi Heidi and evryone who knows me,my baby granddaughter was born this morning (18th) at 11:10 am.She weighed in at 7 lbs.3 ozs,and is 21 inches long.She looks just like her 21 month old 'big sister'Brooke.We are proud of course and she will share December birthdays with a lot of relatives on both sides,her aunt is the 15th.My husband is Thursday the 21 st and her other grandfather on the 25th.Plus today was Brooke's uncle's birthday.Brooke really loved her baby sister and started crying for 'baby,baby'when the nurse came to get the baby so they let her and her other granny walk to the nursery.I held her for a little while but with the hurting arms couldn't hold her long.Hubby held her a LONG time.I am so glad its all over and she's here.I don't know if my son will be able to stay home for the holidays he may have to go back to work.I won't gripe though I'm just glad that he is working when there are so many that arent.Well I hope all of you are feeling pretty good,and are ready for the coming days.I am and so glad to be all done.Take care everyone and big smiles.Mary-La.

Hi Mary,

Thanks for the update and congratulations on the birth of your new granddaughter! That is so wonderful. I am glad to hear that the baby and mom are both doing well. I know you told us in another post, but I forgot, what is the baby's name?

Again, congrats! I am so happy for you!

Warm wishes,
Heidi

Hi All,the baby's name is Kourtney Nicole.I was supposed to put it on here last night but forgot.She was actually born on her due date too! Thats news there too.My son said they all went home today and all is well.The baby only woke up twice last night and didn't cry much when she did.So now its just the wait to see if his company will let him stay home.I sure hope so as I've gotten used to having them all here for the festivities.Its a full house with the wives husbands all the grandchildren adds up to 21 in all but I love it.Tired when its over but its a good tired.Hope all are well its hot here in La.in the 70's but supposed to turn cold in a couple of days.Hope its not too cold as I know I feel bad enough before it gets here and don't like it when its so cold but then I don't like the heat either! I love the spring and the fall best of all.Well gotta go my tummy wants a snack lol.Smiles to all and thanks for all the congrats.Mary-La.

Hi Mary,

I'm a bit late coming in here, but congratulations on the new grandchild, and I'm glad to hear she arrived safely, and that mother and baby are well!

Wish hubby a Happy Birthday too! You certainly DO have a lot of birthdays in December!

I hope you have a lovely time with all the family in the house for the holidays, along with all the grandchildren!
