She's Here!










My granddaughter was born yesterday, Nov 15! She's super tiny, 6 lbs even, 18 1/2" long! It was a little tricky getting pictures in the weird hospital lighting, but here's a few for now. Rachel did really well, and looks wonderful. They're at home now, enjoying time as a new family, visitors checking out the new baby. We'll host an open house in a few weeks, so friends and family up here can see her. I was so happy we were actually all healthy, so we were able to go down the same day! I'm so paranoid after all the illness/pinkeye stuff we had last year, hahaha! I don't remember if I said before, but her name is Alaina (Rachel's middle name is Alain) Christine (Martae's mom's middle name is Christina). Daddy is super excited. Well, off to pick up #1 son's girlfriend from work, but I was antsy to share our grandbaby news!

  1. Hi Michelle!
    I'm just getting over here... Oh what a joy! I know y'all are all excited. 6 lbs... that's a keeper. ;)
    I love her name. It sounds so traditional doesn't it. Sort of with a Victorian Flair to it. Alaina Christine. It's beautiful.
    What a blessing to your family. Hope y'all are warm...and everyone stays well. I always hated having people come to the house during cold and flu season! Ha! Keep the Lysol handy!
    Enjoy the baby...they grow up so fast. Momma and Daddy look sort of star struck! :) I know they've got good guidance from you and your hubby.
    blessings!

    1. Thank you! We do love her name. Rachel was funny, she wasn't thrilled with Christine initially, but she soon realized she actually loved the names together! That little girl is already getting even prettier!

  2. She's beautiful! The new parents look so proud and happy, and so do the grandparents, uncles and aunties. Well done to Rachel and congratulations to her and Martae! And a big, loving welcome to Alaina Christine! x

    1. Thank you! Aidan was the only Wouldn't Hold The Baby Stinker in the bunch - I think he was just too nervous, which is funny since he has four younger siblings!
