Meet My Granddaughter, Miss Madie Ruth Morton

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

5-10-10...My son and his wife were on the way to the hospital, and I went to keep Zeke and took this picture right before they left.  Then on Monday afternoon around 1:45 my sweet daughter-in-law, gave birth to a girl.
I have a granddaughter!  Her name is Madie Ruth Morton
(Madie is pronounced may-dee.)  She weighed 8 pounds and 5 ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long.  She is so beautiful. 
Gran Jan's Joy is now PINK!
Her Grandaddy meets her for the first time below,
and I could hardly wait for this moment,
because we had BOYS!
I just know he is in for a wonderful JOY!
These are Madie's maternal grandparents.
They did a wonderful job raising her mother, my daughter-in-law!
This is Madie's big brother Zeke,
my inspiration to begin this blog,
Gran Jan's Joy.
In less than two weeks my baby boy's sweet wife will deliver grandbaby number 3, little Jackson Evan Morton.  Gran Jan's Joy is receiving the double portion this month.  I honestly can't wrap my heart and mind around everything I am feeling and praying and rejoicing over, but I'm doing the best I can to enjoy every minute and to be thankful.  

My family is growing and the heritage of faith they are going to receive is the most important gift my husband and I can give them...

Psalm 103:17
But from everlasting to everlasting
the LORD's love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children's children-

Mrs. Jan, I'm soo happy for you!! And you're sweet family! I can't wait to see more pictures and hear the stories of sweet Madie Ruth. (are they calling her by both names? cause that'd be super cute if they did!)

Love you Gran Jan!
Nikki

Congratulations! I have 2 grandaughters after having 2 sons and no daughters. I didn't realize there is a whole new world of pink stuff out there!! You are doubly blessed getting 2 babies at once!

Ohhhhhh!! How adorable!! How precious. What a princess. I know that we will be seeing much more of her on Gran Jan's joy blog. Congratulations, Jan!!

The legacy that Madie will receive is one of godliness, character and holiness. That is exactly what my Bible study is about that I am writing. The legacy that we leave for those who come behind. So important.

Yes - both of us grandmothers have decided to call her by both names, so "Madie Ruth" it shall be.

I love her name, and Ruth was my paternal grandmother's middle name as well - and Granny's birthday was also in May, the 16th. My Dad was the 9th of her 11 children, so she was much older at his birth. It seems even strange to say this, but she was born in the 19th century, May 16, 1896...amazing.

She was a precious woman of God.

Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments.

Gran Jan,

Sweet grand children are absolutely GRAND. I'll have to tell you some day soon, what my Granddaughter had to tell me as I flew from Kansas to Atlanta on April 23rd.

With love,
