My FIRST grand daughter to spoil!!  (Think it's too early for hiking boots and a really short ice axe?)

7lbs even, 19 3/4" long.  She even has red hair just like grandpa!  She is about about a month early, but doing just fine.   :cool:

Baby looks grand, and Mom looks way too smiley to have just brought that little red faced thing into the world.  :)  A month early brings some difficulties to a few little ones, so I am glad to hear she is doing OK.  

At that size, she could just sleep in your gear hammock.

Crap!  In all the excitement, I forgot to list the name!  Sarah Noel.  (Noel being the middle name.  That is also her mother's middle name who was born on Christmas)

My son (Adam) is pictured.  He is the short person standing next to me in my avatar!

Found out a few hours ago that Momma is going to be spending the next couple of days in the hospital due to excessive blood loss.  She's doing alright and hopefully, all will be OK.
