And Baby Makes Seven!

Sometimes babies arrive weeks before we are expecting them to....
like this wee one...weighing in at only 3 1/2 pounds!
 Meet my seventh grandchild, Lois Cora, born seven weeks early. She will have to live in NICU for awhile, and I have yet to get to hold her but her nickname may be Spunky because she is doing an amazing job of surviving! You can see from the smiles on her family's faces that they are happy to have her here
 despite the drama involved.
How thankful we are for wonderful hospitals and the advancements in medicine that help make pre-mature births less scary. God has blessed us with a tiny miracle!
 So, Lolly has had to step it up and get busy on a little quilt for Baby Lois because she wasn't quite prepared.............more on that next time, I promise.
I think my son, Drew,  might be excited about having a daughter, don't you...
Even a super tiny one!
