Emery Jane Williams

Babies make their own schedules and little Miss Emery Jane Williams was no exception. We'd arrived in Chicago late Saturday afternoon only to receive a phone call early Monday morning that Bonnie was heading to the hospital. We kicked into high gear to change our plane tickets and get on our way to Amarillo via DFW. There was only one seat left on the closest connecting flight to Amarillo so poor Rich was left behind in Dallas to wait it out for a couple more hours. Even with all of our rushing, I did not arrive in time to help Bonnie with her labor or to witness the birth of our newest granddaughter. I was sad about that but mostly grateful that everything went well and we have a healthy baby girl added to our family. Sarah and Elle did get to town in time and Sarah was able to be there when Emery was born. She weighed 6 lbs, 7 oz and was 19 inches long (for some reason, we were initially told that she was 6 lbs, 12 oz and that was revised today...not sure whose mistake that was!) Emery has a little bit of very dark hair and long fingers and toes like her daddy. She is perfect and precious. We are thrilled!

Bonnie did a great job!

Gigi with her new girl

Elle has grown up so much just since we saw her at the Jersey shore in June! She is talking up a storm and has such a cute sense of humor. She was also very interested in her new cousin. We've decided she'll be a great big sister when the time comes!
Not proud or anything!

Emery, one day old


Sarah and Elle were only here for a day but we were happy to have some time with them. We will see them later in Dallas. Our vacation plans have been turned topsy turvy so we are starting in Amarillo and then visiting the other kids in Dallas and Abilene toward the end of our trip.

The new family of three
Congratulations to David and Bonnie. We love you and our new granddaughter very much! It will be fun to be here for a couple of weeks and get to have some Gigi time while helping Bonnie out. Then off to see the other precious grandkids Aidan, Ally and Elle as well as their fabulous parents. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful family.
I'll catch up the other pieces of our trip soon but wanted to share this post first!
