Random 5 Friday: It's A Girl

1.  I am a Grandma! Introducing Sarah Marie. She was born last Thursday. She weighed 8lbs. 3oz. and was 20.75 inches long.

2.  She has a head full of hair. You can't really tell in the photo but she looks like she went to the salon and had her hair highlighted. I have never seen anything like it. When her Daddy was born he had a full head of hair as well.

(apologies that it didn't scan well)


 3.  Actually, Sarah is my fourth grandchild and the third girl. She joins her cousins Lily (age 6) and Lucy (age 4). They are my daughter's daughters.

 4.  My only grandson is Sarah's big brother Sam. Here he meets his little sister for the first time. From that moment he referred to her as 'my baby.' So cute!

 5.  Once you see your own child hold one of their own it all comes full circle and you realize what it truly means to be a Grandma. Even though little Sarah is number four she is just as special as all the rest. I am truly blessed.

Linking with Nancy for Random 5 Friday.

Hi Carletta wow. She is gorgeous. Congratulation. She is a double for her daddy. All your grand children are lovely looking but I suppose they take that after their grandma

Congratulations Carletta! It seems impossible but it is true--with each child your love just gets bigger. There is room for all. Grandchildren are the best.

Congratulations to everyone on the new family member. She's a cutie. She does have a full head of hair. Hopefully it doesn't all fall out like some babies do.
Such sweet photos. I loved the one of her and "Big" brother.

Congratulations to all in this beautiful new baby . Oh my so beautiful.

Yes when you see your own grown children being parents. Then it is
so nice like you say.

Oh -- best wishes and congratulations to everyone. The baby is adorable and the picture of her with her big brother is just perfect. I am sure her big cousins will be thrilled to get to meet her too. You have a lovely family and I agree completely about how it makes you feel to see your child holding his/her child! (One of our sons has a daughter named Sarah -- she will graduate from HS this year...time goes by so fast!)
