New Granddaughter has arrived!  
Yesterday, on my mom's birthday, my granddaughter was born at around 2 p.m. I don't have the spelling of her first name yet, something like Zaman or Zeman, but the middle name is Athena. She weighed 6 lbs. and 11 ounces. As soon as I have pictures I will post some.

Wherever she is, I'm sure Mom is so happy her great granddaughter appeared on her birthday. :)

ETA: Zaman Athena, born 1:48 PDT. Zaman means honey. (It sounds like Ziman with a short i, emphasis second syllable.)

OMG so TINY!!

I wouldn't know what to do with a baby that little! :P

I had two smaller than that. Gen was 5#6 and Raenie was 6#1. Raenie was a month early. Gen came within two days of when I said she would.

Thomas was 9#2, Tayler 8#9 - babies come big in my family. Except my niece Sanura. She came at 30 weeks and lay in my hand. She scared me to death! ;)

My family ranges from tiny little Gen to my sister, who was 10#9, both born right on time! My own girls went 7#14, 5#6, 7#10, 6#1, so average, small, average, small.

I was one of our family's smallest babies before Sanura came along - I was 7#2. Everyone always blamed my size and weight on my mother's age - she was only 16 when I was born.

Her other babies were larger so yeah, this one seems smaller. But she's almost 7 lbs. My daughter was 7 and 3/4 lbs and I thought she was tiny after my 9 lb, 22 inch son.

Maybe it IS mom again! :P Congratulations!!

That thought occurred to me. One of the first things my daughter said about her new baby, not even remembering it was Mom's birthday, was that she looked "like Grandma." So...hmmm. I suggested the idea to her and she was a little startled (since Mom had so many psychological problems). I said, "Her only real problem was how she was raised. She just needed to know that she was loved. With good parents she'd be just fine.

So we're reserving judgment about what spirit has taken birth. :)
