Man, was this news hard to hold back telling you guys.  But I wanted to make sure baby, mom, and dad were all settled before they had their pictures plastered anywhere other than our more private social media accounts.  You may have guessed by now, I’m a grandma!!!


Hazel was born 2 weeks early, 11 days ago, on September 27.  She was ready though.  While both her mom and dad were smaller babies, she was a solid 8 lbs. I seriously cannot wait to snuggle those baby rolls!


Poor angel. But, her mom pointed out she’s a rock star. Look at her hand, heehee.

While mom and baby were discharged the day after she was born (a Saturday), she ended up with jaundice and back in the hospital on Monday evening.  But she’s a trooper and her numbers went up pretty quickly once treatment was started.  Do you guys know how hard it was for this grandma to not hop on a plane to be there for them all?  My sisters talked me down.  My younger sister had been through this with one of my nieces and told me I wouldn’t be able to hold Hazel anyway, and didn’t want to take any time away from Kirsten and/or Griffin getting to spend time with Hazel when it was allowed.  Our little fighter was home again on Wednesday and doing well


I’m counting down the days until I get to see this little nugget…and her dad and mom, too. Less than two weeks now!  Kirsten’s parents will be there this weekend and stay a week and I’m super jealous they’ll get to meet Hazel first.
