Welcome to the Family, Little Lauren Carol

This afternoon, my oldest granddaughter, Norah, gave birth to her new little daughter in Denver.  Mommy and baby are doing wonderfully well.   The wee one weighed in at 7 lbs and 1 oz and is 19 inches long.   Her name is Lauren Carol - I am so very touched to have my name as her middle name!  The entire family was kept updated by both Chad and Norah all afternoon via texting back and forth and also pictures!  Henry was there, too, since there is no family physically there (but we were all there via the internet and in spirit).  

 Here is sweet little Lauren all cleaned up and wearing a beribboned hat.    They certainly don't come any sweeter than this little babe.   Grandma Sherry will be flying out to spend some time with the family the end of next week.  She is so excited to be going. 
Here are parts of three rows for the little quilt.  I will put in some statistics - dob, weight, etc. near the little rabbit family.  There is one more row not shown here.  Now I can start my buttonhole stitching.  Then I will put the sashing between the rows and on the top and bottom and then quilt it.  I don't think I will have it done in time to send it out with Sherry but it shouldn't be much later than that.

It's been a good day.
