"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. "

I have a new name: GRANDMA!

On Tuesday, August 10, 2010 at 4:39 a.m., our daughter gave birth to her first child, a daughter.

Lenora Marie Iacono weighed 6 lbs 8 oz and was 20 inches long of PERFECTION!

Can you say JOY!? WONDER!? AWE!?

Can you say GRATITUDE?


She is a gift from God!

After enduring two years of infertility, Katie and Eric are now holding (in their arms AND their hearts) this precious little girl.

The tears are now tears of JOY; and our hearts have expanded (to almost the point of HURTING) to make room for the overwhelming love we feel for this little sweetie!

She has brought to life a Scripture we have all read and heard numerous times:

Luke 2:19 "...and Mary treasured these things in her heart and pondered them"

I will be pondering for a lifetime!!!!

Grandmas hold our tiny hands for just a little while, but our hearts forever. -- Author Unknown
