Lady Emery Elizabeth















Our sixth grandchild - and third granddaughter - was born this morning. Jennifer and Jason are the proud parents of Emery Elizabeth Brewton, born at 7:32 a.m., 8 lbs. 13 oz and 21 inches long. And talk about hair - the girl has that in spades, just like her mama before her. When Mike brings up the album with Jen's baby photos in it, I'll scan and post a photo of her - they look so much like each other in my mind. Labor was mercifully short (about 4 hours), delivered by a midwife at a birthing center and, joy of joy for this gramma, home 4 hours later! Today ended up being a marathon with a scheduled granite countertop install for Jen and Jason (which was completed under my watch while they were gone), a first-time clean with a new company at our place, keeping the boys while mom and dad were away and the birth of the baby! We were laughing about it this evening after Luke and Ben were in Ben and we were all watching the Olympics and enjoying Emory - who knew that today would be one of the most hectic yet productive days for us all? Jen's tiptop - the afterbirth pains aren't fun but other than that, it was a textbook delivery. Emery is "so chill" as her folks say - very calm, pooping like crazy, nursing like a pro. It's been an amazing day!

Congratulations Cheri, Sounds like a good birthing experience I hope I am that blessed soon. My number one had hair like that only lots of curls too and by my heartburn I am guessing number three has quite a bit too.

She is gorgeous,Cheri! I love all that dark hair. I'm so glad she arrived so quickly and safely. What a way to have a baby! Back in the day, my mom was amazed that I only had a 3 day hospital stay. :) Congratulate them all for us and enjoy your time with Lady Emery and her two little royal guards.
