The Grandma Club...

  Hello everyone!  On August 17, 2011 at 10:35 am 
I became an official member of the Grandma Club!

May I introduce you to Miss Klara Mae...
I must say, I'm smitten!
Klara and her flowers from church.

She made her debut on her Daddy's 26th Birthday!
If you would have told me 26 years ago we would have
been this blessed, I would of needed someone to pinch me!
Her Mom did a great job and had an all natural birth,
with some help from Daddy as her coach.
She weighed 5 lbs 13 ounces.
She is a champ at nursing
and has totally stolen my heart.
I was blessed to be able to fly out the day of her birth
and was in NC at the hospital by 8:30 that evening.
Uncle Bret lives close by, so was at the hospital shortly after her birth.
Grandpa and her aunties had to wait to fly in on Friday am.
The timing worked out and the girls were able to come down
 for the weekend before heading back to school!
God is so good!

Our family....
Celebratory dinner for Baby Klara!


Aunt Emma :)

First time to church,
so blessed that we were
all able to be in NC for the weekend!
Sign on her Hospital door,
love her little foot prints!

Grandma is so Blessed!

Seth and beautiful Klara...
Such a special time watching my son become a Daddy!
He is loving it too! Such a good provider for her and Melanie!

Beautiful DIL Melanie with Klara...
So proud of you Melanie,
you are a wonderful Mommy!

Waiting to go home...

Uncle Bret and Klara,
the lucky bum only lives 20 minutes from her!

Just an hour old...

BFF already,
Bella watching over Klara.

Beautiful Baby Girl!

Grandpa's Girl...

Bright eyes...

Daddy's little Steeler fan!

Aunt Rebekah...

This is how I left her to come back to Ohio!
Precious sleeping girl....
Grandma loves you so much!

Daddy and Klara, just chillin'


I was able to spend the first 10 days with them and every minute was so special!
I am so thankful to the Lord for a happy healthy birth and looking forward
to watching Klara grow.

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Psalm 127:3
