My First Grandchild Has Arrived!

I'm officially a Grandmother!  Hooray!

Our Granddaughter was born yesterday, February 28th, 3 weeks early! Boy, what a surprise that was for our Son and his Wife!

Our Granddaughter was 5 lbs., 6 oz, and 19 inches long.

She still hasn't been given a name...hopefully tomorrow the decision will be made.  So many names to choose from, and it all comes down to "the one"!

Speaking of names, everyone has asked me what my "grandmother" name will be.  When it comes right down to it, the baby will be the one who chooses, but I'll be steering her toward "Memere".  My Father's mother (French Canadian) was called Memere and my Mother's mother was called Grammie.  When our kids were born my mother chose to be Grammie and my Mother-in-Law chose Gram. So Gram and Grammie have been done and done! My kids never knew my Memere so I'm happy to be called that!

That's my exciting news for today!  Can't get much better than that!
