Isn't She Lovely?

I'm a Grandma!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't She Lovely? by Stevie Wonder

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old

 (I sang this song to myself when I saw her the first time! )

Lily-Jo Juliette 
February 6
4:13 p.m.
8 pounds 14 ounces
20 inches long

Lily-Jo has her Momma's middle name Jo as well as Grandpa's middle name Joe!

Delivery went very well! Both sets of Grandparents were there as well as the aunts and uncles anxiously awaiting the arrival. When we got the text from Daddy she was here....we screamed! Momma did so good and I'm so proud of my baby girl. I was overwhelmed with emotion seeing my baby girl as a momma to her baby girl. And now I'm head over heels in love with this little bundle! She has stolen my heart! I have enjoyed every second already of rocking and cuddling her! I can't wait to share some pics....


 Seeing my baby as a Momma!

I'm a little emotional...I cry a lot!

 Looking at that precious little doll for the first time!

Grandpa is quite taken with her!

That hair is adorable!

Auntie Haley looking at her twin!

Our first grandchild! Overjoyed!

 Uncle Zach and his niece....totally smitten!

Auntie Darb and her photo model niece!

And these are the next day!
Perfection only from God!

She got to dress up for her first K-State purple pride B-ball game!
This is one of my favorite pics!

The hair was a TOTAL surprise! I had told her she would probably have a lot of hair because she had heart burn constantly and lived on Tums! I had the exact same thing with my little Haley! I'll show pics later of how much Lily-Jo and Haley look alike!

I understand the power of God, I know He is Almighty, He is perfect, He is the Creator.

....and when you see a newborn baby with their perfect little fingers and delicate ears, and fine little hairs on their soft arms, and teeny tiny can only say.... 

Be still and know that I AM GOD!


We are so grateful and thankful for Lily-Jo's safe and healthy arrival. We are equally thankful for Lacey Jo's health during delivery and after.

Oh my goodness, Tanya....Lily-Jo is beautiful! That hair...those cheeks. What a blessing.

I have to tell you on that photo where you first saw your baby with her baby and you were crying, I couldn't help it...I bawled myself. I saw myself there as mother to my Joy and felt what you must have been feeling. I never thought about it before until you wrote your sentence and showed that picture. I'm still sniffling!

How good God is! I'm so thrilled for your beautiful family!

I pray God blesses your beautiful grandaughter and your family richly and that she comes to know the Lord and lives for his glory!

Have fun making memories with that little bundle of joy!

Lots of hugs!
