Introducing Our Granddaughter Callie Rose

With a surprise early arrival today Callie Rose weighed in at 4.6 pounds and estimated at 17 inches long. Mommy Theresa and Callie are both doing fine. Callie was due to arrive by doctors calculations on October 16. We were there with Theresa today joining Theresa's mother and step-dad Dick. Carolyn and Shawn were with her when she gave birth to Callie. Carolyn snapped some pictures, and later in the day was able to see Callie in the ICU and snapped a few more. Thanks to Carolyn for these shots to share with you. David and I will be seeing Callie for the first time tomorrow morning. We are very excited to introduce ourselves to her. We thank God that both Mommy and Callie are doing so well.
