"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Full circle...

...after 36 hours of labour,
7 hours of pitosin,
5 hours of pushing
an emergency C-section,
this little beauty
came joyfully into our lives...

  1. Having just snuck out of a bed with a gently snoring granddaughter ....... let me just say that you are in for a wonderful time. You will spend hours just gazing at that lovely little face in absolute awe. She is just beautiful!!

  2. She's adorable! I love her little lush lips...just perfect!

    Congrats to all~


  3. She is absolutely beautiful, Jojo. I love all 3 pics. They sure tell a story. I am so happy for you. You will have years of fun and love ahead of you. It's a love you have never known.I can not even express what Grand Children mean to me. They are truly gifts from above. We are now in a club together, Jojo. Being Grandma's.(mine call me Nanny). I too love those sweet lips. Enjoy her and give her a kiss from me, all the way from Ohio.

    God Bless~

  13. I am so glad I checked to see if you had this happy news!!! Congratulations Grandma Jojo & Grandpa! Yep, your life will be forever changed, in the most precious way! Seeing the world through Maude-Lilly's eyes will give you a new vibrant look at life!!! Honestly, when she's about two and running circles around you and you wonder how you'll keep up.( she'll go home and you'll take a nap)! Just kidding, she will share a bit of her fountain of youth!!! Really!
    Our Grandkiddos seem to bring out the kid in us! Big Hugs to all of YOU! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  14. Be still my heart, dear JoJo. What a gorgeous baby! For all that she went through, for all that your beautiful DIL and son went through, everyone looks radiant! And I must say that you and your husband make lovely grandparents!!!

    Much love and big hugs,

  15. Jojo, she is simply precious! Such a beautiful blessing. I think her theme song should be "My Way" by Frank Sinatra because she delivered in her time and in her way. This little one has determination!

  16. What a doll! She is just beautiful but I'm sure you already know that...hehe. Enjoy and get some rest~

  17. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! She has such a lovely name, and just looks so cuddly.

  18. Ah! What a beauty little Maude-Lily is! Congratulations Grandma. Makes me want our little Mazzy Kaye to hurry up (though not to fast Mazzy. Finish cooking first please!)

  19. A beautiful gift of grace! May the favor, love, and blessing of Christ rest upon you both.

    PS: Thanks for stopping by the blog and leaving a kind word. Prayers for you today and Maude-Lilly.

  20. Jojo! You must all be so relieved and exhausted! What a beauty she is. You must be overflowing with pride. The picture tells all. Congratulations!!

  21. Jojo I am so sorry I missed this. I want to send my love and congratulations to all of you. You look so in love with the little princecess in the picture.
    Oh the joy these little ones bring with them is mind boggling! I know that she will bring so much happiness into your life, and you into hers!!!
