welcome to the world Lillianna Grace!

wow!  I am pooped out!  running like a maniac here.. Marlas been with me since tuesday night and Im loving having her.. and I have to admit I am tired!  I totally get why God gives us our babies when we are YOUNG!  cause its hard to keep up with them when we are 53!  lol!  but Im having a great time with her here.  In fact.. Ive been told that Im a beautiful princess while in my nightie.. and "spin grammie spin!"  although, she told her grandfather that too.. so I'm not sure it was totally a compliment! LOL!

So, of course, we have a new baby in our family!  Lillianna Grace came into the world by C section at 10:15 (or so) on wednesday morning.  Weighing in at 7'14 and 20 inches long.   she is perfectly wonderful!
Marla and I were able to watch them cleaning her up and measuring her and all that good stuff just seconds after she was born.  
I love these pics of Marla checking out her new sister.  And Robert did well..  no one had to pick him up off the floor this time! LOL!

Look!  precious lilli pie!
I'm getting quite the collection of baby pies!  
Today we'll be heading out to the parade and craft show, picnicing with friends and then to the fireworks tonight!  Tomorrow, I'll be exhausted!  (lol.. grandpa boo boo is dressing Marlas barbie right now! )  
I'm running back to the kitchen ,  salads to finish making and lots of stuff to pack up for the day.
Im looking forward to playing with Marla, Torry and violet all day!
next year, lilli will enjoy the 4th with us too!  She will be leaving the hospital today and Marla will join her there tomorrow... then Grammie will probably collapse! lol!
Have a wonderful Independence day!!

What a beautiful baby-pie! Congrats to the young couple, her sister and to you and your husband. Grandchildren are so much fun, and yes, exhausting too. I had Tad all day yesterday while my daughter in law went for a long doctor's visit and he wore me out. happy 4th!

Congrats, Vivian! I have to agree about having babies when we are younger; my granddaughter can tire me out after just a few hours! : ) It's a good tired though. Happy 4th and I hope you get to rest at some point this weekend!
