She's here! She's here!

Actually, she's been around for a week now. But she also came to visit! I couldn't write about her birth because I'd been given the "shush" word. But that ban is now lifted and I can show you this...

Loving her mommy and just an hour old!

And mommy loves her!

Taking a selfie with DeeDee
 She's a week old here and visiting her DeeDee and Poppa. Mommy needed help with Hamlet homework. 

Taking a selfie is difficult with a squirmy baby. Especially for a DeeDee that rarely takes selfies.

So people who know that I'm a grandmother want to know why I've decided to be called DeeDee by the next generation. The crazy kids in my family have this idea that, when one becomes a great- anything, they need to add "old" in front of the grandparent name. I'm not having that.

No. I do not want to be Old Grandmay. So, I've decided on DeeDee. That was my name when I was a baby. 

My older sister couldn't say "baby." She said "deedee" instead and the name stuck. My parents called me Dee until their deaths. There are times, when I miss momma and daddy, that I miss being called Dee. So this may help solve that problem, also.

 Back to this cutie.  Amelia Renee was born last Tuesday weighing 8 lbs. 6 ozs. and 21 inches long. Not small.

She just looks very tiny when she's in my arms. And see those eyes? She loves to look at whomever is holding her.  I do believe she already has that eye squint down. Imagine what she'll do with those eyes will do when she's six! 

We loved having her here for a little while. She and I took a little nap, her mommy and Aunt Jolie stayed for supper, and Dusti got lots of homework done. Having an adult granddaughter with a baby is unbelievable. I am anxious to have some time to enjoy both mommy and baby.

Oh me too, Karen! However, I have to admit that she looks completely unimpressed.

Kaja said...

Congratulations! What a little honey.

Such a sweet honey, Kaja. I'm beginning to think she hasn't figured out the purpose of crying, yet.
