Miss Mini, Part 2

You will just have to bear with me as I flood this blog with photos of granddaughter #2, Miss Mini.  She is darling and now I'm back home many, many miles away from her.  It was hard to leave her behind, and daughter and son-in-law but it was a must for my life to move ahead and them to step into the next phase of their lives.

It started with this...

and progressed to this... 
I arrived a couple of days before the due date to make sure and be around for the birth.  We waited and waited.  We played cards, put jigsaw puzzles together and even went to see Downton Abbey...we waited and waited...

Finally, the evening of September 30 (my sweet mother-in-laws 92nd birthday) and things started happening.  A contraction here and there but nothing.  Tuesday, October 1 (Snicklefritz's 7th birthday!) she called the doctor and they said come to the hospital and see if you are in labor and since it was past the due date they would probably keep her.  All through the night she labored and most of the next day, October 2.  Then finally Miss Mini made her way into our world, our hearts, our lives. 

7 lbs 15 oz, 21 inches long and such a beautiful little spirit already.  She doesn't get overly upset and quiets really fast. 

Our lives are so enriched by the addition of sweet Mini into our lives and completes this little family.

Baby Watch Is On

Well, I'm here in LA awaiting the arrival of our newest grandchild, a little girl.  So excited to meet little Miss Minerva.  It's hard to believe that just a few months ago they announced the news and we've patiently awaited the day.  Today is actually is the due date so any day now we will meet here.

I'm here to hopefully be of assistance in any way I can.  Tick Tock...we wait, wait, wait. 
Oh, and check out the new me, down nearly 20 pounds and two sizes in jeans!!!!!

The Many Faces of 40 Years

40 years ago today our lives changed completely when this sweet baby girl came into our lives. We celebrate Briana's 40th birthday today and the joy she has given us. She is strong, smart, beautiful, intelligent, a shaker and mover. So very proud of what she has accomplished in her life and can't wait to see what she has to offer in the future. Love you my sweet blue-eyed blonde baby girl.
