While Em was pregnant, she frequently said, " I don't care what day she's born on, as long as it's not the 11th."  Her hubby's family has anniversaries and birthdays on the 11th, and Em didn't want to take away from their special days. Since her due date was the 19th, a birth on the 11th didn't seem very likely.

Do I really need to tell you that little Elephant [blog name chosen for her by her mother] made her entrance on May 11th? Nah, I didn't think so. It was too perfect. I envisioned little Elephant inside her mother's womb saying, "Did she say the 11th? I'm positive she said the 11th."

I would be a poor grandmother if I didn't post pictures, so prepare to be amazed at her loveliness.

7 lbs., 4 oz.
Around 5 hours old

2 days old, in her elephant-patterned p.j.'s

Grandma's hoping for brown eyes

Big brother Chunk adores her already

Can you see why Chunk has been spending his days with Grandma?
He's been described as "Dennis the Menace on steroids."
But it's a lie because he's always a perfect angel at Grandma's house--
besides I told him to go play in the mud.

This is only one of the reasons why I love having Chunk come over every day while his mama is recuperating. He was playing with Grandpa's flashlight and he aimed it at the corner of the wall saying, "Look, Grandma! I made you a heart."  

Happy Mother's Day to me.


  1. Sooooo cute. Congrats.

  2. Whole lot o' lovin' going on.

  3. Jill: Thank you! Isn't it amazing how all some people have to do is be born and we love them?

    Auntie M.: Blogger keeps dropping your comments for some reason. I can see them as an email notification though. I copied and pasted your comment here. I also changed my comment section to a pop-up box to see if that solves the issue.

  4. The nicest little elephant I've ever seen! Love the heart, too.

  5. Ken: Isn't she a sweetie? I was quite enamored with the heart--a thoughtful gift from a three-year old.

  6. I want to hug that cute little elephant and adorable Chunk!!!!

  7. septembermom: Until the day that you can give them hugs in person, I will keep hugging them for you. :)


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
