Look what I got this weekend...

A great big piece of Heaven named Amani Nicole!! It was a huge, long, drawn out ordeal but look what a great reward we got in the end!! My daughter is ecstatic but exhausted. She began laboring around 8 a.m. July 28th and we were on pins and needles until Amani was born. She was finally admitted at 4:00 a.m. the 29th and the toughest part began. It was so hard for me to be so helpless as her mommy but she is definitely my hero!! She made it to 5 cm before she finally stopped trying to tough it out and let herself get an epidermal. This only helped for a while because the tube got messed up and they had to do it all over again after she began having intolerable pain again. They had to help with delivery by vaccum because they started seeing distress in the baby but she was finally born July 29th at 2:25 p.m. completely perfect - and breathtaking, you must admit! - and weighed in at 8lbs 4oz and 20-1/2 in long. Baby was alert and looking around the minute she was born and didn't really go to sleep for a full two hours... nosey like me! :P

Thank you, Lynn. You made me cry all over again! You should have seen ALL of us, Great Grandpa included, blubbering like idiots the minute that baby was born! We are so in love already.

She is beautiful Miz!!!!!

The feeling of seeing your brand new grandchild is so wonderful and so overwhelming. I burst into tears at the first sight of mine and had to pull myself together before going in to see my daughter, because I didn't want her to think anything was wrong.

You have a beautiful and precious set of memories coming your way. When you see her excitement at the sight of you walking into a room and her arms going up in the air to get to you....it's heaven.

And you get to her and she starts the smiling and waving arms and legs. You pick her up and she remembers that you always give her a hug, a kiss and a nose rub. It leads to the day she starts doing it to you before you can love on her, it's heart-warming.

And your daughter tells you that she says, "Are you ready to go to Grandma's house?" and then tells you that your grandchild breaks into a big grin and gets excited....it makes you feel really good inside.

From one new grandma to another, congratulations and lots of love. Give your daughter and grandbaby a hug, a kiss and a nose rub from me.

Lynn (with tears in her eyes remembering her day six months ago)

 

If I was standing on a fish, I'd slip and fall......

OMG Miz she is gorgeous!!!! I'm so glad I clicked on this thread! Best wishes for you, your daughter, and the rest of the family!!! What a little slice of heaven!

This little baby girl has been spoiled since we first learned of her existence!

I think you and I have similar feelings regarding small children... 

 

"He sounds different. It's the only reason they can hear him at all."

Congrats Miz on the newest addition to your family!!!  Now have fun spoiling the heck out of her.   

What you do in this life, will echo for eternity.

Awww... she is cute...

And trust me, I wouldn't have even left a comment if she wasn't...

Ooh, look... that's a serious compliment from me since I typed 'she' rather than 'it'  ...

Sorry, anyway, have fun giving her the things that her mommy won't give her lol...

Awesome, congrats Mizz!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks! The epidural didn't work as well as we hoped but, like you said, in the end it was worth it all. Even my daughter said so. Also, my other daughter can take all the credit for the pictures! She did an awesome job.

Congrats Mizwingzz. Tell your daughter congrats too! She is adorable. Pretty long labor. Epidermal are your best friend at that time especially that long of a delivery I was in labor for 34 hours but in the end it's worth it. She's absolutely looks like an angel. Good job on the pictures capture the moment beautifully!

And spoiled she shall be!
