Here's Our New Little Family Face

I spent last night at the hospital.
Mimi cannot lift anything yet so Nana
gets to hold the precious baby 
while Mom sleeps...
and lift her to Mom when she is hungry.
What a job, huh?
So...
You want a quick peek at a sweet little face?
She was 6 hours old when this was taken.
(edited to add:  Mimi says she was 
30 MINUTES OLD
when this picture was taken)
She just had her bath but still has
that "new baby look", doesn't she?
Look at those piano playing fingers!
I'll  be back soon with more baby snips and snaps.

Thanks for all the prayers and well-wishes.
I think Mom & Dad did good
and we are
NOT PUTTING HER BACK
WHERE SHE CAME FROM
no matter what Big Boy E says!

She is a pretty little girl! I am sure you are enjoying bonding with her, did I miss her name? Prayers sent, sometimes I forget how blessed I am with my good health. Keep us posted.

Linda said...

P.S. I forgot to say that when my granddaughter found out that she was going to have a baby sister, she just BAWLED. Now, 5 years later, they are best friends.....I'm sure E will be a wonderful big brother.

Maria Elena said...

That little girl is going to grow up to be a super little sister ... getting under her brothers' skin and making their lives much richer for her presence. Such a blessing. Please thank Mimi for allowing you to share her with us.

Congratulations on your new grandbaby!! She is adorable!

Patty Patterson said...

She is BEAUTIFUL! I knew she would be. But - she is even more beautiful than I had imagined. I wish you were closer and I could hold her - and maybe even take her pictures! I do hope you get newborn pictures. There must be a newborn photographer in your area. That sweet little face needs to be on many, many gallery wraps!

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

Oh precious!

Mmmmmm, Big Boy E is being perfectly normal I see. Good. What a crock it is, to an older sibling, to be told how "wonnnnnderful" it is, to have a new family member. Which for him, naturally translates to, having to share more of the family attention, with another small person! -chuckle- That's life. But it doesn't mean he has to like it!

Katie Clooney said...

What a gorgeous little girl! Congrats Diana!

Lisa~A Cottage To Me said...

LOL on Big Boy E's remark. Remind me of what my brother told my parents when I was born.....he had rather have a Chihuahua!
She is really beautiful....so tiny and perfect. Thank you, Lord, for this precious life.

I've been playing catch up and you sure have had a lot going on. Congratulations on the new, little princess. She's a darling! Special thoughts are going to poor Momma. Emergency C-sections are no fun and it can take awhile to recover. I hope she is well on the way to feeling better and able to enjoy her perfect family.

Stephen Andrew said...

YAY! Congratulations!

cindy the cottage chick said...

Hurray! We're still awaiting Robyn's new sibling. they are currently staying at our house due to an infestation of bed bugs at their place next door (ew). She was due today, so I'm assuming she'll be delivering again at our place. We're all anxious to see this new sweet pea! Seeing yours just whets my appetite for that new baby smell! Congrats!
