'Just wanted to drop in and say "hi" ... and take the opportunity to show off our new (March 5 edition) granddaughter, Audrey Annette.....
I was so excited to finally get my hands on that little sweetie yesterday. Sanity would probably call it "gas," but I swear she smiled once or twice! Is it just me, or do you ever gaze at a newborn and try to fathom what they'll look like in a year ... in 5 ... or 50?
Family and friends are here from Chicago and Florida -- to baby watch and attend Spring Training games. 'Tis is a good thing(!!!) no-one was around to watch DH and I (speed) deep-clean Hotel Guca .... rearranging our "usual" tablescape:
|...sigh, no comment!|
...into something more closely resembling a normal dinette. (Aside: Are they still called dinettes? We're far too casual to own a 'real' dining room!)
So, in between we celebrated DH's birthday..... and tomorrow my eldest granddaughter turns 17!!!
Isn't she lovely?
And certainly more mature than I! For instance....
"What would you like for your birthday, Sarah?"
"Oh Grandma, I have so much already. I don't need anything."
"Whaaaaat? You're too young to be talking like that, little lady!"
(I was tempted to tell her to go wash her mouth out with soap, before my DH caught wind and supposed that's a hereditary trait - LOL!)
Whether they're a few days old, 12, 13, or 17 ... granddaughters have such a way of wrapping themselves around my heart!
Be back soon!
