Baby Lauren

bijw9y On this Pink Saturday nothing seems more appropriate to share than pictures of my new granddaughter. Lauren Elizabeth was born at 8 p.m. EDT on Monday, May 18. She weighed 7 lb., 15 oz. and was 19 1/4” long.

Little Miss Lauren will probably keep people waiting all her life. She was due May 7, so LBeau and I had our trip to Annapolis carefully planned. We would leave Birmingham on May 13, get in a couple of days visiting my cousin in Accomac, Virginia, move on to Annapolis to see Brent receive his master of liberal arts degree from St. John’s College, and most importantly welcome our new granddaughter.

Wrong. By Monday when it was time for us to head back to Birmingham, she had still not made her appearance. We left Annapolis at 5 a.m., planning to make the return trip in one day and knowing we needed an early start to get around Washington, D.C., without traffic delays. By mid-morning we were sight seeing along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park when Brent called to say that they were headed to the hospital.

Cherish Sample - Page 006We continued to get updates throughout the day. Finally, just as we arrived in Birmingham, Lauren decided to make her grand entrance, and we missed the whole thing. Fortunately, we will see her soon when we help them move to Savannah. I can’t wait to get my hands on her.

So sorry you missed the big outrance, but I know the big meeting will be ever so special. Have you told her she's a legacy yet??? Should we sing Kappa lullaby?

Sares said...

What a little baby DIVA! She's not even born yet and she's settin' her own rules. Good for her! I am sorry you didn't get to be there though. It's always so special when a new baby is born. Congratulations to the whole family, what a wonderful blessing.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend and Happy Pink to you!

What a l♥vely Pink Saturday blog entry. This is the one day of the week when I get to sit for a couple of hours and soak in my favorite color. Thanks for being a part of that day☺

Little babies...just the BEST PINK EVER!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful family weekend. I will be remembering my father who served in WWII, and praying for all of our military who are in harms' way.

♥Mimi♥ said...

I've been meaning to ask each week. Who designed your blog background? It is lovely!

♥Mimi♥ said...

Thanks so much for answering my question about your blog background. I find PhotoShop too costly for me at this time...sigh.

I'll have to check out the Cutest Blog on the Block's instructions, print them out, and see if I can understand them. I know my son would, but he's leaving next week or FBI boot camp (yes, some kids still want to do FBI stuff) and won't be around about about 16 weeks. I'm going to miss him like crazy but not as much as his wife and three children.

Any hints on making a background that you can give to me?

I like a girl with a mind of her own! That is the best pink post!!! She is beautiful and I am sure you will be waiting with open arms and heart. Walker is darling and very typical!

Lauren is precious! If I had a little girl, I was going to name her either Lauren Elizabeth or Lauren Olivia (Olivia is my middle name). I know you can't wait to hold her....and Walker is adorable! :-) Susan

Some things just can't be planned, but at least you will be there and then it won't matter. How sweet are they??!! happy pink saturday, Char

Susie Jefferson said...

How adorable! Big congratulations! Even Big Brother looks pleased.

Thanks for visiting my blog - yes, a Bank Holiday weekend means a 3-day weekend, and I will be having a lie-in tomorrow.

Today we are watching Britain's Got Talent - the first semi final, with Susan Boyle... a very shaky start (you could see she was nervous) but she rallied magnificently.

Happy Pink Saturday
