We've Just Had Our Baby!!!

Oh, Dear Ones, I had to tell you! Our daughter has given birth to a 7 lb. 2 oz. baby girl - 20 in. long. Her darling little name is Carter Ashlan! Well, shoot! We were not there, little Carter decided to come a tad earlier than we expected but we're leaving Wednesday. They live in Washington state. So...as soon as I have pictures I'll share those with you.

I couldn't wait to tell you and wanted to thank you all for your prayers and best wishes. God is so good. Our daughter's labor was only a little over two hours! Hallelujah! I've already talked to her and she's doing well. She had the baby at a birthing center with a midwife and it was a wonderful experience for them. Son in law was right there with her the entire time! The midwife said Daughter's labor was what every first mom would want.

Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers! I may be missing for a while. But had to share with all of you sweeties.

You can call me Grandma!
You are my bunch of sweeties,
Shelia;)
