Three Weeks Ago Today ...

We had waited

and waited ...

(My mom, aka "Geggy")

and waited ...

Some of us even donned special clothes
made just for the occasion ...

and finally ....

Miss Vivian Hope "hopped" into our lives
the evening of Saturday, April the 7th ...
just in time for the Easter Bunny!

Gorgeousness ...
All 8 lbs. & 6 oz. of her ...
(so far, she's the biggest of the Dial grandgirlies!)

My youngest son ("Big Daddy"), Dr. Alan Chamberlain (who has delivered all four of my grandchildren
 & is the most awesome OB ever - in the Dial Family's humble opinion), Miss Vivi & her momma.

Nana & Grammy, exhausted after being at the hospital for 24 hours with no sleep
(which I'm aware is completely evident in this photo ;)
 but with that said, I want to go on record & say that Miss Vivian was well worth the wait!

Vivi & her great-grandfather (my daddy) right before she got to go home.

I couldn't possibly publish this post without sharing this pic of my DIL, Rebecca,
 just seconds after Vivi (only minutes old) had been taken to be weighed & measured ...
looking so lovely (after being in labor for > 24- hours) ... she's amazing!
