I'm a Grandma!

Gwendolynn Avery was born Thursday, March 1st.  9lbs 11 oz, 21 inches long.

Gwendolynn was two full weeks late.  We extended our trip by a week, so that we wouldn't miss her birth. 

I had made t-shirts for all of the grandparents to wear at the hospital.

Unfortunately, my son didn't tell me that the spelling was wrong.  It is Gwendolynn with two 'N's', not Gwendolyn with only one 'N'.  Oh well, we didn't care.  I'm sure Gwendolynn can't spell yet.

Here I am, holding my precious new grandbaby.

Here are her happy parents.

Here she is, with her daddy, after she came home from the hospital.  The gown she is wearing was made by a friend of ours (thanks Crystal).  I took the picture before my son got to take his shower (hence the wild hair).  Sorry Connor.

Boy are you lucky.  I only showed 4 pictures out of the dozen's I've taken.  You're welcome ;)

I'm seriously 'tech' challenged.  I just learned (on this blog post) how to get photo's from my phone.  My son has spent a couple of hours today, teaching me lots of new techy things.  


We fly home in the morning.  Just in time for me to get my machines ready for my booth at my large quilt guild's quilt show this weekend.
