well, she finally arrived on monday evening around 6 p.m. and of course, she's beautiful! here's our first glimpse of her when we first arrived. grandpa jerry was near bursting w/ pride as i stood back and watched b/c i have a cold. how unlucky is that???
jerry had to be out of town for 3 days for a work conference, and he was so worried that she would arrive while he was gone and he wouldn't get to see her until he returned -- so this was great luck for him! he had his bags all packed so we could race to the hospital as soon as we heard she was here.
all is well; everyone is doing great. summer and i are going to joplin tonight and hope to see her while we are there. i'm sure she won't be the least little bit spoiled (said with dripping sarcasm!), but there is nothing wrong with being spoiled w/ love.
