She is here!!

We welcomed Cora Elizabeth Engelman last Friday morning very early!!  She is so tiny, compared to mine who were all over 9 lbs.  What an honor to be present at her birth!!  

Gazing into Mommy's eyes

A great head of hair, she weighed in at 6 lbs. and 11 oz.  what a little peanut!

I am still trying to find the words to express what it feels like to see your children having children.  Sometimes I just marvel that it has been so many years since I was in their situation.  What a miracle birth is, what a miracle watching your children bearing children.  Awe and wonder and pride seeing my daughters rise to the awesome task of birth, and watching them mother their own children.  I am so thankful to God for giving me such wonderful children.   

I am loving being a Grandmother!!  Loving watching my daughters be Moms!!  Loving watching my Grandchildren growing up.

Sophia is growing up and she and Cora are the best granddaughters ever!!
