Announcing the arrival of Jaliyah Grace.

Our granddaughter, Jaliyah Grace Murray, was born January 24 at 8:05pm.  She weighed 10lbs 15.4 oz. and is 20 3/4 inches long.  That is one big baby!  She had a rough and traumatic entry into the world, but mom and baby are doing great.  What a thrill to finally hold her in my arms.

WARNING: lots of pictures (I couldn’t choose one or two so I am posting all of my favorites.)

Jaliyah with her proud parents.  Isn’t this the sweetest picture?  It brings tears to my eyes.

Thanks for indulging me and letting me brag.
