Evelyn Rose is Here!

I'm interrupting my Mackinac Island posts to announce that great-granddaughter, Evelyn Rose [who will be called Evie] arrived while we were on Mackinac Island.  Her arrival was May 23, at 12:59 a.m. 

I awoke to the wonderful news yesterday morning, but didn't want to post it on my blog until Tiffany and John officially announced her arrival to everyone.  Below are the pictures our daughter sent us on her i-phone right after Evie's birth.  She weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz. and is 19 inches long.

It was a long day for Tiffany.   She went to the hospital around 10:00 a.m. on Monday, May 22nd and gave birth to Evie about 15 hours later.  Evie is healthy and beautiful, and mommy and daddy are happy and proud of their new daughter and blessing from God.

Our daughter, Lori, is now a Nana, and I'm a great-Nana!  She was with Tiffany and John during Evie's birth. 

Somehow it seems like it was only a couple of years ago when Tiffany was born.

 I can hardly wait to meet the new little bundle of joy in person!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!  I love the saying, "Babies are God's way of saying the world should go on."  And for me, a new little great-granddarling to enjoy tea parties with!


  1. She is beautiful! Congratulations!

  4. Congratulations! Beautiful baby! My first grandchild was born on May 23rd. Twenty years ago!
