And Elyse Makes Three

Elyse Hannah Simmons

7 pounds, 3 ounces and 22.25 inches long

Born to Hannah Evangeline and Jesse Simmons
and to her sister, Evangeline Heidi.

6:35 Sunday morning, September 24, 2017

Elyse began her journey earthside
mere hours after the Simmons family settled themselves into their new home
and christened it with the dawning of the autumn sun. 

She was born the day before her grandma Jackie gave birth to her daddy 33 years ago! 

My third grandchild, born 25 years and 9 months after her mother’s birth.
