Welcoming Amelia

Lar and I got home from Tenn. Thursday evening.  We were gone from July 1 to the 11th..  How excited we were to see our daughter, Dawn, and granddaughter, Amelia Rose.  We traveled the 10 hours including stops without staying overnight.  Dawn was recovering nicely from her C-section.  The baby was doing well, but it was considered a bit preemie, even at 6lb, 6oz.  The first night we saw her in her bassinet with the light glowing under her and a couple of lights over her  head.  As with many babies, she had jaundice.  Then she had to use an oxygen tube for a while and then a feeding tube.  Finally, today, I see that she is home.  Yeah!

During this time, Dawn, Daddy Dave and I did get a chance to hold her.  Oh, the experience of a newborn.  I remember it so well.  The Lord was faithful and let me be there during this time.  In fact, just before I left, I was having some pain in the side issues.  Flack is what it was.  My pastor prayed for me and a good blog friend Susan R. prayed.  So the trip was possible.

Now that I am home, I am so thankful for all that God has done.  He cared for Dawn through her pregnancy and brought Amelia safely to us and got her home.  I was supposed to help Dawn with the baby at home, but it turned out that I was a help, by the grace of God, just by being there and doing what I could.

Please forgive the delay.  I had so much to catch up on when I got back.  I am now very excited to see what all of my blog friends have been up to while I was away.


  1. Congratulations. How wonderful that we both have new granddaughters. We are so blessed.

  2. Congratulations to you and your gang! A new baby girl, how sweet! I am sure you will be the best grandma ever. :)

  3. Aww, so glad everything turned out well!

    She's adorable. I can't wait to see more pictures. Little boys are cute, but I love those baby girl clothes. :)

  4. Susan, they will be coming up when I get some. Thanks for your prayers. They all had good results. I'm still praying for you.

  5. That's wonderful news, Nancy! So glad you got to be there for your daughter and your new granddaughter.
