Katherine Eloise (Katie) was born August 19, not on her "due date," the 27th. Babies have a way of knowing when it's time to make their appearances, regardless of what the doctors say.
She was born on the same day as her great grandfather and is his first great grandchild!
On the very day I posted the quilt photos, we received a call that the time was approaching. So at 1 a.m. Monday, August 19, we headed out, arriving at the hospital at 6 a.m., just a few hours before her birth.
And what a precious child she is! All 7.5 pounds of her. She has a full head of dark hair and I'll have more pictures showing that later.
The new family is doing quite well and getting some much needed rest.
Thanks to all of you for your congratulatory comments.
And a BIG thanks to my sweet sister for coming to stay and take care of all our pets while we were away!
