Love at First Sight

 

Tears of joy fell from my eyes

as I gazed into hers

it was love at first sight

My new little granddaughter Noelle Marie, only moments old.

❤ ❤ ❤

 

Hi friends!  🙂

I don’t have much time to write at the moment, but I wanted to send out this quick post to share the happy news that my sweet little granddaughter has arrived!  Omygosh you guys, she’s sooo precious, I love her so much!

She was born via emergency c-section last Wednesday, and boy was that ever traumatic.  I’ll try and share more about it later – right now I’m a bit sleep deprived.  😉

But I’m happy to report that both mother and baby are doing well, and are here at home, gradually getting settled in.

It’s hard to put into words all of the emotions I’ve experienced over this past week, but the one constant is overwhelming love…

 

I will try and stop by your blogs soon to catch up on what has been going on in your world.  Until then… be well, much love, and many blessings to all of you!

 

Here are a few more photos of my little blessing…

I give my grandma’s arms a “thumbs up!”

    • Thanks so much, Trisha!
      Rachael is recovering well – well… except for the sleep deprivation, but that’s par for the course for every new mother. 😉
      My nerves have recovered, but gosh it was ever an intense ordeal, and I’m just so extremely grateful that they’re both alright. ❤
