Cute Family, here's what I've (and many of you) have been praying for! Meet Evelyn Grace, born 10/21, weighing in at 3# 13 oz & 17" long. (she was 4 wks early) At 28 wks, parents were touring the NICU as the drs. said she'd never be able to carry her much further. Well, 8 wks later she's arrived. This is my son's hand with her a few hrs. after birth and today her mama got to hold her for the first time! It was a rough delivery (over 12 hrs labor to end in a C section) & baby will have to stay in NICU a while due to size, but praise the Lord for a healthy, beautiful little girl. Big sister, Carrie, hasn't seen her yet as she can't go into the NICU..but my son took his phone in & let Carrie "face time" with baby sister & Carrie wouldn't give her mama the phone back! So sweet. Thank you for those that have been praying..keep it up as she continues to grow now outside the womb.

I promise I won't slam you gals with baby pictures. But I got to hold her today as did her Papaw. Holding a 3# bag of pure sugar!! Probably 2-4 wks in NICU, but we know what our God can do, so she'll come home when He sees it's time! This is me holding our little bundle. She was supposed to get the IV out of her head late this afternoon. Praying she did, it sure looks uncomfortable!

What a sweet little bundle you each will treasure! I love all of her hair. We have a grandson who was just 1 lb 15 oz, born in the 25th week and he is now doing well and 9 years, he now seems to never stop growing which is so very awesome when they start out so tiny. The medical care your daughter in law and granddaughter had available and those precious extra 8 weeks inside her mom is the miracle prayed for! It won't be too long before she will catch up in size, until then, I hope they can get extra months of wear on those tiny baby clothes. Congratulations to the whole family. Being a Grandma is the best, enjoy all those precious moments! Hopefully little Evelyn Grace will pass all the medical tests with flying colors, and be able to come home soon, as well as Momma having a bit of time to heal from the Cesarean, the time between her hospital release and the babies is the hardest, as Mom will want to be with her little one every hour but will also need to be resting herself as well as the NICU is not always in the home town, so I am praying the coming weeks are not too difficult, the faster baby can be home with Mom the better, prayers will continue.

How precious she is Gerry. My 1st weighed in at 3# 10 oz. She is in her 60s now with Grand children. They did not even have NICUs back then. Little Evelyn Grace with God's Grace will thrive. Will keep you all in my prayers, Lillian
