She's Here, My Precious Brand New Grandbaby!

After 5 days late, she finally decided to come out. I guess she just wanted Jesus to have His special day before having hers. The day after Christmas, Tina woke me up and told me I should take a shower already cause I might have to take the boys to the hospital because she thinks "Today is the day". And so I did and all day long we were just waiting patiently for her contractions to progress. They eventually did and this adorable precious beautiful girl is the proof. Her name is Reese Kristina.


This is her first picture that Scott, the dad, texted us. It was so surprising because they have only left more than an hour ago for the hospital by then. In fact, I had just texted him to ask if they admitted Tina yet and the response was a baby picture already, lol. Tina said her water broke the moment they got to the counter of the hospital and as soon as the doctor arrived, she was fully dilated on the very first exam and Reese came on the next contraction. I guess that is the way to go, lol. She was in the hospital an hour and 5 minutes before having her.


She might have delayed her arrival for 5 days but when she decided, she came fast and there was no keeping her in there.


an 8 lb. healthy baby girl and if you have seen her mother, you would wonder where she stayed for the last 9 months. Her mom is barely 5 ft. tall and is not even 100 lbs before pregnancy.


She has lots of hair, even more than her 20 month old brother has.


She is 21 inches long.


I can tell big brother Brendan is going to take good care of his baby sister.




I am not too sure about this boy though. When he saw the bassinet empty, he kept pointing at it saying he wants to go "ni-night". After all, he is just a baby himself, just turned one last February.



Such a good feeling cuddling a grandbaby for the first time.


The happy growing family.





She looks like she is already smiling, doesn't she?

She is such a sweetie and I just love her so much. I am so thankful that she and her mom are doing well. I would like to thank everybody who offered prayers for them. As you can see, the prayers really worked. They are coming home tomorrow and I can't wait to hold the baby again.


My other daughter's twin girls should be arriving within the next 2 weeks. Please pray for them also. Thanks!


Thank you so much for stopping by and for sharing this glorious event with us.
