We have a new baby!!!

Since I posted this He is Here!!!! Marcello Jovani was born at 12:54 pm and he weighed 8 pounds and 5oz and has a lot of black hair!!! Both Mama and baby are just fine!! Welcome to the family!!


Today is my daughter Carrie's Birthday!! Happy Birthday !!! She is my first born!
When I had Carrie 51 years ago today it was so hot! No air conditioning back then! In fact the handy men were taking down the storm window putting up the screens!! I had Carrie over at the old Connley Maternity hospital in Kansas City, It isn't even there any more!!
I remember we had to stay for about 5 days back then!!

What makes this Birthday so special is that Carrie's son Jeremy and his wife Sofia are having their baby today! Having a grand baby on your Birthday is very special!!!

We know that it will be a little boy. Jey and Sofia had their first baby in 2004 and he had Potter's disease and he only lived about an hour after he was born. This was a very sad time. In 2005 they had a beautiful little girl Valerie. Last year on June 22nd Kevin who is so cute and is taking his first steps now was born. Karen and Kelly are up at Jey's house watching the kids for them. Sofia's Mother will be flying here on June 2nd and she will be a big help for them!!


Of course I am very excited about being a Great Grandma once again!!!


Nancy's Dr.'s appointment went really well and we don't have to go back to this Dr until next May! In June we have 3 Dr.'s appointments!!! I haven't heard back from the dentist but I know they are working on it.

When I hear from Karen or Jey I will post again and tell you about our new baby!!!

I just looked at all my old post that are up and low and behold I used the Happy Birthday Icon for Sarah's Birthday, too!! I had forgotten I had just used this!! Does this mean Grams is getting old ??? LOL

Denise said...

Congrats!!!!!!! Great Grandma!!!!! You are YOUNG at heart.....and such a day for you...My first born was the first grandchild in the family and born on my Dad's birthday!!!!!!! What a treat! Enjoy this day girl friend.......

Denise said...

Welcome to the world dear little Marcello, may you always be blessed.

Melli said...

LOL! Grams... my oldest daughter is 31 and that made ME feel old. I think having a daughter turn 51 puts you more in the OLD category than forgetting which icon you used last! BUT... the GOOD news is... your mind and your heart are still YOUNG - and that's all that counts!!! Bodies are such a temporary thing! Can't wait to hear about the new GREAT GRAND! (see? Good grief... I can't even IMAGINE that day coming! Luz is only 3 -- LOTS of years to wait to be a GGma!)

Melli said...

Whoa! WAIT! I think I missed the first paragraph altogether! How'd THAT happen??? SEE??? I TOLD ya I'm gettin' old! Sheeeesh! Well! Congratulations on little Marcello! When I was giving birth to Amanda, there was another single mom in my birthing classes - and she was naming her little boy Marcello! I haven't heard that name again since then! It's so unique!

Grams,

Happy Birthday to Carrie. What a wonderful birthday gift to have a grandson born on your birthday. I would have loved that.

I am glad the baby and mother are both healthy. I am waiting to see photos of this little guy.

Be sure to stop over to my blog when you have time. I posted a wildlife surprise for my readers. It was a surprise to us as well.

Love and blessings,
Mary

Sorry that I have not been around like I should have been. Too busy I guess. Waiting for pictures. I love your picture of the over weight bear saying that broken cookies have calories too. Sandy
