Small and New

Everyone knows that by far the happiest and universally enjoyable age of man is the first. What is there about babies which makes us hug and kiss and fondle them, so that even an enemy would give them help at that age?

There is a new little person in my life this week who will be taking away some of my blogging time.  Meet Margaret Rose "Maggie".  She arrived Monday by C-Section and weighed 7.15lbs. and was 20 inches long.  This pictures was made when she was just  a few hours old.  I will get some better ones when she is at home.

Babies need a lot of stuff as well as a lot of attention.  Here are some of the burp clothes I made a few weeks ago.  I split them between my daughter and my niece who had a baby at the end of April.  I found the diapers a Kmart.  They are harder to locate than they used to be and come in packs of 10 instead of 12 these days.

I finally stitched something on my embroidery machine.  I did it on a small piece of white flannel and added that to the diaper like I did the others.  The red ribbon accent set it off just right I think.  Now I need to get some onesies done.

The long cold winter this year had the amaryllis blooming along with the Asian Lilies this time.  They didn't seem as deep in color this time for some reason.

Babies grow up so fast!  This little blue eyed boy turned one a couple of weeks ago and is walking.  Since brown eyes are what both his parents have and what my husband and I and all four of our kids have we have been so happy and surprised at his big blue ones.  I wonder what he will think of his new cousin?

I'm going to delay the Giveaway drawing for a while until I am more available to answer the comments.  I'll be a busy Grandma for a while until Mama is back on her feet again.

  8. I know you are "over the moon" with the addition of Maggie to the family. She is a perfect addition. The burp cloths are wonderful. You are correct; the red ribbon accent is perfect for Mick Mouse (as of my kids called him). I hope Mommy makes a speedy recovery. I'm sure you will have a wonderful time caring for Maggie. Blessings to you and your family.
