Almost . . .

is there such a thing

something that is supposed to happen on a certain day

and happens the next

doesn't matter

Elijah Gary Gordon

born February 15, 2016 at 10:53 in the evening

to grandson Cody and sweetheart Elise

8 pounds 11 ounces

twenty and a half inches

we are over the moon happy for them

and I was honored they chose, in part, my late husband's name

look at those hands, cheeks, early eyes open and HAIR

and now I will treat you to love in first pictures

in case you were wondering

new momma Elise holding Elijah in the first picture

followed by the crowned prince great grand

and then granddaughter Amanda holding him

dressed in a reindeer hat from her

yes, "that braid" is her real beautiful natural blond hair

(and I worried when she went through a purple hair phase)

sorry, I got off track for a minute

and there I am holding Elijah and then Jack, great grandpa

and then Scott, my son, proud as can be with his first grandchild

daughter in law Sue missed having her picture taken

but enough handling of the little one

there he is, unswaddled for a minute

in grandson daddy's arms


nothing like a newborn

a miracle treasure for us to love

Lynne, he is a little doll. Our children are becoming grandparents and it's an amazing thing to me. Being the oldest person in a room comes a long with it.. :)
I am so happy for all of you. But you especially, because I know and love you to pieces! You and I share a lot in this life. A lot!
My love to you and yours.
I'm so excited about another one in our family. It's a great thing. A very great thing.
