Day 21 - AEDM & Nablopomo - Baby has ARRIVED!!

Today, I became a Grandma for the second time,
I am SO excited!!

My daughter, Michelle, gave birth to her second child/daughter 
at 3am today (November 21st) weighing in at a whopping 9lb 6oz!!!!
Baby decided to kick things off on her own so
Michelle didn't have to be induced after all.
Mummy and baby are doing well and Alex, Michelle's hubby, is thrilled.

Mikayla was carried into the ward by her Daddy
to meet her new baby sister.  
It was love at first sight and she quickly became the doting 
and possessive sister. 
Too cute!!

I am so in love with my new granddaughter!!!

Those were my favorite pattern of booties, I think. The popcorny stitch, if that is a word.
So happy for them all, Grandma!! :) :)
