Yesterday was an exciting day. We welcomed our new granddaughter into the world. Lauren Rebecca was born around 9:30 in the morning (for some reason no one has bothered to find out the exact minute yet). She weighed 7 lbs. 11 ozs. and was 20" long. She has a full head of dark hair, which was a bit of a surprise to all of us. Her brother, Jacob, was born with lots of hair but it was soooo blond that he was the talk of the nursery. Trista and Jeremy are tired but doing well. Jacob's day was not so good. Besides being tired and cranky, he was confined in a space with no toys and lots of "no-no's". He threw a fit when Jeremy brought the baby into the nursery for the first time and couldn't understand why Jeremy wouldn't come and "hold you". He was very gentle with Lauren but he's been around his cousin Madyson quite a bit and LOVES her. I don't think he gets it yet that Lauren is going to be permanent. Thankfully, he will go to preschool today which will give everyone a nice break. Enjoy the pictures.
