« Part 8: Not done yet, but just got the call! Part 9 of Grand Daughters Crib series Part 10: The build is finally done! »

Addison rose was born Thurday the 6th of November at 2:19 am. Both are doing just fine. Addison weighed in at a whopping 7lbs. 15 oz. and stands 21” tall.

I’m working hard to get this crib finished up and into finish. I think you guys are right, my timing is off a little or is it? This way I’ll have to go back down when the crib is done and I’ll get to see Addison again. Here’s a picture of Addison at about 12 hours old. Click on the picture to see it full view.


I’ll try get some on about the crib tomorrow night. (I’m hope its done by then)

Thanks for following along with me on this special journey!

She looks like a real cutie—all that nice hair! We’ve really enjoyed your blog and look forward to the final chapter (which must include a picture of Addison in the crib since it won’t be completely done until Addison is resting peacefully in it) ;-) !

Thanks for including all of us in on this special personal journey. Congratulations Grandpa!

Les, congratulations on your first grand daughter. She is a doll!!! I am sure it will be hard to get back into the shop when you have this “new toy” to play with.

Congrats Les! Sweet little gal. Your life will change in unfathomable ways. After the initial reinforcement, that yea I am old enough to be a grandfather, it’s been nothing but fun since.

Congratulations Les. She is a cuty. Sorry I haven’t posted sooner, I’ve been under the weather myself. Have had the worst case of asthma and bronchitis that I’ve had in years. Just now starting to feel halfway decent again. I can’t wait to see the finished crib.
