Yes! We have a baby

104 comments
Brand new baby and Grandmother here. Yes it is exciting and wonderful to be a grandmother.
Allison Freda Sellers born Sunday morning at 9:47 AM. She was nearly a week overdue. But it might be a good thing because she was only 6 lb. 9 oz. I'm so honored that they chose my mother's name for Allision's middle name. My mom would be so happy.
Aunt Chelsey holding Allison. Allision is the first grandchild on both sides. She will be super spoiled. Mom and baby are both doing very well. We are so grateful that after a difficult week Whitney was able to deliver a healthy baby without complications. She's so darling!

Many congratulations to the whole family and especially to the mother who brought into the world this beautiful baby!

I am not well versed in american measures but 6lb sounds very little. Looking at baby Alison, though, you would not think she's underweight - she looks so alert and cuuute!

Good luck and enjoy the new experience!

Adorable and so alert. Great grand-babies are fantastic, grin, I just became a great grandmother of a wonderful little bundle of boy, grin, which is nice since they already had a little girl, seems to be the season for mothers to give birth, so many blogs have baby photos on them. Give her a hug from all of your readers.
