Grandma Jill

Elinor Grace came home last Friday after spending 7 full days in the hospital.

Born five weeks early and weighing 6#2oz, Elinor had to spend a bit of time with oxygen, lights, feeding tube and some other monitors.

But, now she is home and we are delighted. What a sweet little baby. We all agree she is the cutest baby ever. I was privileged to give her one of the three bottles of high iron formula that she gets daily, in addition to being breastfed.

A new baby is a miracle and a blessing every time. What a marvel that God has wrought. Cliche though it may be, it does not seem that long ago that Elinor's daddy was a baby himself. Where has the time gone?

Take care,


  1. So beautiful! What a blessing!

  2. Hooray for Elinor! You're going to be a great grandmother, Jill!
