Gobble Gobble!

May everyone who reads this blog have a wonderful, joyous, tryptophan induced day tomorrow. Here’s to good company, good food, and a great nap after the engorgement! My one regret about tomorrow?

Gianna Isabella was born at 9:04 tonight weighing in at 7 lbs 13 ounces.  She is freaking adorable.  AND! I’m not just saying that because she’s my granddaughter.  She is all pink sweetness.  My daughter and son-in-law did an amazing job and I could not be more proud of my kid. Here’s a pic of mommy and daughter Yet to be named Grandmother and Gianna. I’ll have better pics tomorrow.  We were all pretty exhasuted when this one was taken.
