Introducing…Our New Granddaughter…..Izabella Marie Akers

I haven’t been able to post on my Google blogspot blog in several days. I don’t know what the problem is. On my edit page I can do everything, but post a new message or edit a message. So, tonight I am  trying Window’s Live for the first time. Don’t have a clue on how anything works with that program.

My daughter in law was scheduled to have a C section later in the week, but baby Izabella was having none of that, waiting for her birth to be scheduled. Last night my daughter in law’s water broke, and Steven and Robin made the trip to the hospital.  Izabella entered the world this morning at 1:41 A.M.  Mom, Dad and baby are doing well. We are all relieved that our little miracle has arrived. Our new granddaughter weighed in at 8.6 pounds, and was 20 inches long.

This morning, Tom and I drove to South Shore Hospital in Weymouth to meet our new grandbaby. I took a ton of pictures, but I haven’t had a chance to download many of them yet. Our new granddaughter has really chubby cheeks, and she looks so much like her daddy.

Today has been crazy busy. After coming back home this morning, I drove my parents and aunt to the Cape
to put flowers on the graves for Memorial Day. Tomorrow, I will be taking them to put flowers on  the graves in Fairhaven and New Bedford.

I will try and download more pictures of our precious, new granddaughter as soon as I can, but here are a few for now. Bella, has already melted my heart.

I wanted to post a few pictures of the clematis that are blooming in my yard the other day, but couldn’t. So, I am adding the pictures tonight. I love the new double one that is in the middle.

Well, it’s been a very long day, and I am really tired.  I am watching the Boston Celtics. Drats!!! The Celtic’s lost. 

Oh, and more wonderful news. Tonight I found out in an email that I won, a prize on Lenna’s blog.

My prize was hand painted fabric that Lenna painted. This has been just the most awesome day!!!!!  That’s it for today, I am off to bed.
