Wonderful time with family

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Our DS and DDIL are moving to a brandnew house next week. We have been helping them pack and watching the baby. Thought you'd like to see my way of helping.



Sleeping like a happy baby:

    Pefect lap size.

The middle photo -- imagine how her little, froglet legs will straighten out over the next few months to prepare her for walking.

She looks like a luxuriant bride in the bottom photo.

Visit with Granddaughter

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

See pictures in previous entries .... she is still just as cute, if not cuter. She recently had a bout with a viral illness that she successfully fought off herself. She is seven month old and a total charmer.... smiles, laughs, coos and "talks", loves the dogs, the outside, rolling over and her grandma and granpa.... and her mom and day as well. It is such a joy to watch our son revel in fatherhood. I am sure every family feels this way as some point, but we feel so blessed that this miracle baby is in our lives.

    Thank you for the update on baby Magnolia. She is precious, and she must be getting stronger to have 'fought off' the virus. Congratulations on having such a blessing in your life.

    No virus is a match for her. I would think that she has no choice but to be cuter and brighter by the moment.

    It is so great spending time with little ones. I have a 2 year old grandniece in Minnesota. My dad and I live in Illinois and we don't get to see her, her mommy, and everyone else that often.

The happiest little girl in the world


On my third month birthday

Okay, I decided to only have two pictures. I could post over a hundred. We are now visiting with family and helping take care of sweet GD. I am still over the moon in love with her. Can't imagine anything else.

    Gee, Carol I can't imagine why you are over the moon about her. She is just so beautiful, chubby and precios. Have you spoiled her yet? I better with those eyes she has granpa wrapped around her little finger. Is she a Daddy's girl or a Mommy's girl?

January Joy

Friday, January 17, 2014

January has started my New Year with all sorts of joy. Our DS and DDIL continue to send pictures almost daily of our new granddaughter. She had gained almost a pound in her first two weeks of life! The pediatrician described as "flourishing."
On January 4th, I began the last 100 hours of my yoga teacher training. After 8 days of twice a day yoga practice (about 90 min in the morning and 45 in the afternoon), hours of class work... feeling overwhelmed with information by the 4th day, we had a wonderful graduation brunch on Sunday. Our teacher introduced each of us personally and we had an opportunity to briefly talk about what earning our 500 hour yoga teacher certification meant.
This week a local free magazine called YogaIowa published their winter issue which featured a great story about kids yoga and pictures from one of the kids classes I teach.
Tomorrow, we fly from St. Louis to Tampa to begin a Western Caribbean cruise. Never been on a cruise and have some trepidation about all the food, but I also plan to continue my early morning yoga practice and follow it with a swim.
BTW.... I will be out of Wi-Fi range the entire week (Jan. 19-26), not because the ship doesn't have Wi-Fi, but because it costs like crazy.
I will be back home for a week and then out to D.C. Our DS has asked me to come help his wife with their new baby as he has to travel to Asia for business. He and DDIL make sound as if I am doing them a great favor. What.... a favor to spend two weeks with my six week old granddaughter.

    Enjoy the cruise. Don't worry about the food, you only live once. After the cruise enjoy the baby. I know you will. BTW I am envious. Yeah, isn't it funny how they think Gramdma is doing them a favor. That's alright, let them think it. emoticon

    Thank you for sharing all the wonderful and thrilling news, Carol. I believe this little girl is your first grandchild? Congratulations on having someone new to love, two glorious weeks of diaper-changing and playing with her and the certification in yoga. The cruise sounds like fun. I have full confidence in your coming to terms with the food, but hope you enjoy some out-of-the-ordinary choices.
