Yesterday was possibly the greatest day of my life because yesterday my baby girl had a baby girl. Folks have talked about how awesome it is to become a grandparent, but until it happens to you, you just really have no idea.

Then if you take the awesomeness of becoming a grandparent and combine that with your daughter allowing you to be in the BIRTHING ROOM, helping her through the delivery so you actually WITNESS the birth of that new grand baby...... well, there are just no words to describe how that feels.

Yesterday (on 10/11/12) at 1:20 pm, Miss Corrie Ann Wells arrived to the world at the College Station Medical Center in College Station, Texas, and I WAS THERE!

We checked into Jess' Birthing Suite at 8pm on Wednesday night....Ready to be induced!

Jeff did a good job consoling her as the contractions started....

And then at exactly 1:20pm on Thursday afternoon, Corrie Ann Wells entered our world! Jeff was ready and willing to cut the cord.....  

Watching that moment when Jess got to meet her little angel was just nothing I have ever experienced! 

Corrie weighed in at 8lb, 1oz and was 20 1/4" long.

 I am happy to report that the new little family is doing AWESOME! 

and that as I type this on Friday night, we are all home from the hospital, so Corrie is getting to spend her second night on earth in her own house, in her own bed, safe next to her mommy and daddy.

And as for this old gal, all I can say that is that entering MoMo-hood is about the most fantastic thing I have ever experienced. Life is indeed good!

A big welcome to Corrie Ann and congratulations with her to all of her family - including her Momo :D

[and as a relatively new mum, I hope Jess found the whole birthing thing to be as magical as it was painful :D
Precious little ones are worth it all, though!]
