Oh GAH!!!!!!!!!!!! I am in love already!

Would you look at this?  One of her mamma, just beaming!  She looks beautiful, doesn't she? and that baby Catherine.....how precious!


Does she LOOK like she just had a baby???





And my son, here, holding his daughter for one of the first times......makes a mamma's heart bursting with pride!!!

Catherine was born today about 12:28 or so and weighed in at 7'12" and was 20 inches long!  We are so excited to welcome her to our family!!! 
Looks like Miss  Char was the guesser who guessed the closest to Catherine's real live birthday!  I will have to send her a prize!! Thanks for joining in the fun, all you blogging friends!!!

Edited to add: I am bursting with joy, especially looking at my son holding his own child.....that is just the best feeling!  I so love my daughter in law, also, so it is so sweet to see her so happy!  And to answer Debbie's question......my grammie name is PEACHES!  Heather decided, even before they were married, that she would have to come up with a grammie name......since she has always called her grandmother Bitsy.  So somehow Peaches came up...maybe because at the time Russell was living in Atlanta, not sure I remember, because it just seems like it's always been!  So when my friends, the quints, came along, and I was volunteering over there once a week, they all started calling me Peaches to sort of "break in" the name and it worked quite well...and Heather was thrilled!  Long story short, my grammie name is Peaches.  I don't know what my husband's grampy name will be, but we will come up with something!  It's been suggested that he be Cream!! Ha!  What do you think????

Perfect precious little bundle Suzanne, I love the picture of daddy and his daughter. Oh the bonds of love they will share. I know that Peaches just can't wait to get out there and give that new family big big hugs.

Bee yooo teee ful!!!

And no, Mommy doesn't look like she's just delivered a baby, except for the smile of pure joy on her face. I love the picture of the new dad, too. That one must make your heart burst wide open.

Congratulations, Grandma!!

CONGRATULATIONS, Suzanne! I am so happy for you. She and her mom are just beautiful--and your son looks like one proud papa!!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Congratulations!!! She was certainly a good size. My daughter has a couple more weeks unless she goes early. I think Cream sounds good for grampy.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Congratulations Suzanne (Peaches) How cute is that. I have a friend whose Grammie name is Honey, but Peaches beats that.
Happy family. You must be on cloud nine.
Hope they are close by enough for you to love on that little bundle every day.
Enjoy!!

Congratulations on your beautiful granddaughter! Maybe Grandpa can be 'Herb"...I might be the only one who gets that 70's reference : )

Have fun with baby Catherine!

Dogmom Diva said...

Oh Suzanne, congratulations to you and the family..What a blessing little Catherine is! I can only imagine how excited you are feeling! I am still waiting for my first grandchild, hope I get one sometime!
I love the name Peaches..Not sure about Cream, but what the heck. I think I would like to be called Gigi..sounds very frenchy!

Gail said...

CONGRATULATIONS Suzanne! I know exactly how you are feeling. I've been there! I tell everyone....there is no greater love then that of a childchild.

Enjoy your day.

Leslie @ goodbye, house! HELLO, HOME! said...

Oh!
Peaches!
You are so blessed! How beautiful is your family! I am so happy for you all!
Cream? No.
Fuzzy?
Pit?
Cobbler?

Hmmm....that's a hard question.
My dad's grandpa name is Wompa. Because Sarah, my daughter, the eldest grandchild, couldn't pronounce grandpa--it cam out, "Wompa!"
:)
I pray you have much fun with your new doll baby!
Hugs,

Congratulations on your new grandbaby! She looks like a little cutie pie. Love the grammy name too :-)

Pamela said...

Congrats Grandmama!!! I know how excited and over joyed you must be right now!! From what my mother in law says being a Nana is far greater than being a mama. I sure hope that holds true cause though I am loving watching my boys grow it breaks my hear to think they will one day be all grown.
