Blessed, Again

The coffee has been flowing freely at the Ciminel household this weekend, mostly New Orleans Blend. Our second grandchild came into the world via an emergency C-section on Saturday. At 7 lbs and 20 inches, Ella Marie Ciminel left the warmth and security of her mother's womb and entered the bright sterility of the operating room without much fanfare. She has a hearty cry; wiggles like she has someplace to go; and rarely loses the contented smile on her face.

Ella inherited the beauty of her mother and the good looks of her father. In a year or so we will learn if she also inherited their wit and sense of humor. After quietly watching Ella's facial expressions and body movements for the few hours I was able to be with her, I expect she will meet everyone's expectations, but we may never meet hers. That is probably a good thing for a young lady growing up in the 21st Century.

I hope you enjoy this photo of my newest grandchild as much as I enjoyed taking it.
