Marley Ross Arrives!


Her father walked into the room, baby girl in his arms. Here she is for all to see, vitals listed at the top.


She was the image of both her mother and older brother. Red and angry at being taken from her warm floating house boat to bright lights and startling noises.


Marley Ross will be given every happiness possible and complete love and devotion.

Dad holds her down to introduce to big brother Riley.



Proud daddy smiles down at his little girl. When they changed her little bow on her head, my daughter said he grabbed up the first one thrown in the trash and said, “Don’t throw that away! That’s Marley’s first bow!” I could not ask for a better daddy for my grandchildren! Any child would be lucky to be able to call him father.



Me with her. I have two grandchildren now!


My younger daughter gets to hold her.


Below, the father, Jeremy with my grandson Riley. And Jeremy’s father Steve. Three generations together marveling at the new baby.


Sweet, sweet baby…


The view from my hotel in downtown Tulsa…


I’m back home in Texas now! Tired, but elated!
