Yes, I am a grandma!!

So much has happened since last we spoke!  Charlotte Marie was born (at 28 weeks), We got to go up to see her for 3 days, and my computer was down for 11 days!  I am going to take time today to introduce you to Charlotte.
She is teeny, tiny!  Born Sept. 4, 2lb 2oz., 15 in. long.  That is her daddy's hand!  She is doing well, but will be in the NICU until at least Nov. 25.
I thought that this sign was priceless!
Here is her proud mommy!
She finally opened her eyes!
Her bili numbers went up, so she had to be placed under 'bili' lights.  That facilitated the beautiful eye ware and hat!
That tiny little bottom is to small for this tiny little diaper!!  That is my husbands hand.
And this is her tiny little hat!  Yes, it fits her.  Now that is small.
 
Thank you to all who have been keep her (us) in your prayers!  Please, don't stop....she has a lot of growing to do.  Her mommy is doing pretty good, and her daddy is also recovering nicely from his back surgery.  There is so much more to this story, but suffice to say....all are on the way to full recovery.
 
It feels good to be back.  Have a terrific weekend!!
 
And this is her now!!
 
 
I made her this dress and dolly for her first birthday!  God has blessed us abundantly!  She is normal in very single way.
 
She ended up being in the NICU for a total of 94 days.  She has progressed and grown in every way.  Thank you to all who have lifted her up in your hearts and prayers!

Oh what a precious child. Thank you so much for sharing. She is going to grow and one day people will find it hard to believe she had such tiny beginnings. Enjoy, Grandma, I know I do.
