He's here!!

Those of you who know me also know very well how long we've all been waiting for the big day.  My daughter and her husband had many challenges becoming pregnant and went through a lot before they were blessed with a successful pregnancy.  I'm so proud of both of them and how they handled the entire journey - the stresses, the joys, the fears, the celebrations.

And on Friday, the big day finally arrived!  My first grandchild, Liam Glenn Simmons, was born at 5:36 p.m. on 8-10-12 to an anxiously waiting family.  Get ready for a few photos...


My first hold


The hospital bed


How cute is that smooshy face?

Eyes open

With the proud mommy



Mommy, Daddy and Baby


My son Ben with his sister and first nephew.

And finally, my husband got fancy with Photoshop and added a bit of embellishment to this photo.  Rocker Baby!
