She’s Our First…

…so there might be an overload of photos for awhile.

Her mommy and daddy both did great during labor and delivery.

Her daddy impressed the nursing staff with his attentiveness and care.

She came in at a healthy weight and length.

She was born on the first day of Spring 2017.

We knew her first name and now we know her middle name, May.

She makes the cutest little noises while she sleeps.

We are enjoying all the cuddle time we can get.

Mommy and Daddy are adjusting to her schedule. Sleep comes in about 2 hour intervals.

Rayna the dog is adjusting well to her and feels the need to alert Jamie when Addy cries in distress. When Rayna comes in from outside her first stop is at the baby cradle to see if she’s still there.

We prayed to God during her time in the womb, for her development and safe delivery and we are thanking God for those answers to our prayers. Now we pray for other things as well.

She will have lots of historical photos to look at when she is older as she was born during the Steven’s County floods of March 2017!

I will have many posts to document these days for Addy to enjoy later in her life. Thank you to all of you who prayed and shared good things about being a grandparent. I appreciate all your kind wishes and thoughts.

  5. I can’t help but smile when I see you holding your little bundle. She is so cute and I’m sure you are enjoying the sighs, how she curls up like she’s still trying to make herself small and the sruprised look when she stretches. Thankful with you on her safe arrival and wishing you all God’s blessings.

  7. Addy May is sure a pretty baby girl. You must be so over-the-moon! Isn’t it amazing how quickly you can fall in love with a baby? God bless her and God bless your time there.

  8. Congratulations to you all on the safe arrival of precious little Addy.
    She is a true beauty. I have 13 grandchildren and know the joy of their arrival.
    Enjoy every cuddle.

  9. Addy May is a lovely name for your beautiful precious little granddaughter. The smile on your face says it all. : )

  10. How beautiful she is and somehow she is making her lovely family even moreso by her very presence. Her parents are beaming and her grandparents look so very delighted. I’m thinking how helpful it will be to have Rayna the dog nanny. Dog nannies are very helpful, especially if they have any herding instincts at all. šŸ™‚
