And here is Number 12!
Here is our latest grand daughter, born to D3. She looks like her mother, but with a rounder face. She is so beautiful!
I know I have said that about every one of the grand children, but they ARE.
It is funny, as each new one arrives, how there is a new place opened into the heart for that precious child. My heart just keeps expanding for each of them.
My grand daughter who is 5 just started school. I cannot believe she is already that old now, and the other one is starting soon too. They were born 3 days apart.
What a fun adventure it is to watch each of these sweet families establish themselves and make their way in the world. I am filled with gratitude and joy.
Welcome to our family. You have been born into a very loving family. You have grandparents and great grand parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, great aunts, uncles and second cousins who are all rejoicing at your arrival. Your parents are very capable and will provide a wonderful environment for you to grow.
I am so excited to watch my daughter, your mom, become a mother. She will do a great job. Do you realize you look so much like her? I looked at baby pictures and I can't believe how very much you resemble her. Your Dad will be an excellent father and great provider.
You are lucky to be born in such a happy family who loves the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and honors the Priesthood. You will be raised in a sweet environment that will help you gain a testimony. I can't imagine life any better. God bless you as you begin this new life. May it be long and happy.
Welcome sweet new one.
