RJ inspiration

Coming up for air.   I never realized what a whirlwind it is when you are the Grandmother of a new baby.  Thank you so much for your comments and well wishes.  I was checking the computer in the hospital to get my blogging oxygen.

Trying to stay airborne, I have been running too and fro the hospital and now I am going over to visit my daughter daily.  She cannot drive for two weeks because of the C-section.

moments after RJ arrived

In-between I just have to say that the Newton Wellesley Hospital was an amazing experience.  The doctors and nurses were amazing.  I thought being a Grandma would make me feel old.  Instead it has brought back that old wonderful feeling of being in my comfort zone.  I'm a Mister Rogers, juice box, comfy cozy blankets kind of gal.   I love being a mother.  Seeing my daughter be a great mom already is an amazing experience.

My daughter, Sarah is thrilled.  She can't get to hold him enough.

As I have been returning home to find parcels of fabric for customers that need to be shipped, stacked on my table as I crash into bed.   I have been trying to keep up with laundry, processing orders on my computer and things around here, and I marvel at those bloggers who can still post daily.

Ricky and his little ones.

Look at these cuties above.  Not only do I have a wonderful new grandson, but I get to play with Ricky's daughters Kailyn and Ashley.   RJ is a dream baby, and Ashley and Ricky are naturals at taking care of him.

Now I will get to play with photographing RJ.  A new toy, better than a new blue balloon.

the first birth day

Wishing you a beautiful day.  RJ is ready to roll and guess what?   Now I have an excuse to ride the merry-go-round again.

leaving the hospital
I did had some time last night to make a few scrapbook pages, and one that matched this beautiful lullaby by Jewel.

Congratulations! It's the BEST, isn't it? She had a C-Section and they only have her not driving for 2 weeks? It is usually 5 or 6 weeks. They usually are not allowed to lift more than 10 pounds for the first 6 weeks. Make sure she doesn't do too much, too fast. Blessings...he is just beautiful!!! xo Diana

Beautiful photographs, Karen. Thank you for sharing these precious moments with us. Enjoy your new toy. :)

And post daily...what's that?!? ;) When so much creativity and detail go into the making of a post, daily just won't cut it. At least not for me, but I do admire those who can pull it off.
