Our New Granddaughter

Today we were blessed with our fifth grand child.  Abigail Lynn Ivers.  She came to this world a few minutes after noon, and weighed in at eight pounds.IMG00031

We went up to the room about 4PM to meet her for the first time. 

We had this picture sent via blackberry within minutes after her birth.  When we showed it to her sister Claire here on the computer, Claire reached out and kissed the screen.  I was quite touched by that.

Her parents, Chris and Melissa, had a chocolate birthday pie, that they were awarding pieces to each guest.  Mel’s parents were there and Abby was being snuggled by each of us in turn.  I got quite a long turn to hold her, but the wife finally declared it was her turn again.

Tonight our other son, Ben and his family were going up to the room to meet Abby, so we slipped away, and went to Cracker Barrel.

So now I am full of country cookin, and quite sleepy.  But we are so blessed with Abby’s arrival and all 5 of our grandkids.
