I'm Great!

No bragging here folks, it's just that I'm suddenly a great grandmother!  I became a grandmother at forty and was indignant at first until I realized my own MIL became a grandmother at thirty seven and I'm sure she may have felt a wee bit indignant!  

After getting a new grandson at Thanksgiving, we got a great grandson on New Year's Day!

Welcome to the world Liam Bentley!  New Year's Eve was a long, long day for Devin, the mama!  She was induced at 5 a.m. and Liam made his grand entrance at 1:57 a.m. the next morning.  Liam's a big boy weighing in at 8 lbs. 5 ozs. and 21 1/2 inches long!

My DIL, Mimi,  granddaughter Devin with Liam and my son David, Papa.  Tired, but happy folks!

Mimi and Papa

Little Liam dressed and ready to venture out into the world on his way home!

Rest assured there will be more pictures to come in the near future!  

The night was long waiting to hear news of Liam's birth......longer for them I'm sure.....and I drifted off to sleep multiple times with my ipad on my lap, waking to check on the progress.  I was relieved to know when he was finally born!

Little Liam was the first baby born in the new year for his county and here is a link to the newspaper story.......So 2013 was off and running!

Granddaughter Devin and family live a long way north of us, but we hope to see Liam before too much time passes!


In other news, it looks like I won't be posting regularly because I just never seem to get the chance to sit down at the computer!  I am going to try, but just check in every so often would you?

He's just precious!!! My nephew's photos (born yesterday) are going up hopefully today. Such an exciting time when there's a newborn in the family. God bless you all!

I love his name too.
I can't TELL you how many phone calls we've gotten in the night, announcing the latest boy child in our family :) we have boys on boys on boys...I have three brothers and three sons.
