Welcome, Baby Dear


A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder,
hope, a dream of possibilities.

Welcome to the world, precious Kendyll Lanae.

Born:  March 29, 2010
8 lb. 3 oz. & 21" long

Congratulations to your happy family!  Mommy Melissa deserves applause for being so dedicated to a happy and healthy birthing.  Big sister, Kahleigha, has been eagerly awaiting your arrival for a long time now.  I know she will enjoy having a playmate.

Friends and loved ones appreciated Facebook technology as they went through labor and delivery with Melissa.  Some of us were even up in the nighttime to check on the status of Kendyll's birthing.

And congratulations to my friend, Paula, the lucky grandmother of this precious little girl!  I know you'll enjoy many wonderful moments being grandma to this adorable little tulip!  She is so precious and sweet!


Making the decision to have a child is momentous. 
It is to decide forever to have your heart 
go walking around outside your body.

    Thank you LaDonna this is so sweet of you....Paula

  2. Very precious little one. I have always loved the last quote. There's nothing like the waiting for a exciting and nerve-wracking all at once.

  3. Oh my,La Tea Dah, what a darling little petunia you showed. Such a sweet, adorable angel. Congratulations to the Mama and the Grandma, too. And to you, "Auntie." How lovely to share in this precious event. Susan

  4. How beautiful to have a new little girl to surround with love.

    BTW, someone just recently gave me a stroller like in that last picture. It's not quite as colorful and I am trying to figure out what I will do with it.
