The Great Auntie Christina Visit


It was so great to finally have my sister here for a visit. From the moment she arrived it was all about Puddin Toes. We literally sat around all weekend focused on the baby. We had so much fun holding her, changing her diaper, bathing her, dressing her....It went on and on.
So here is yet, another excuse to post pictures of my grandaughter.
I totally understand how boring this must be to everyone else on the planet but me! ;>)
First we had to take her cloths off, so Aunty could count her toes!

Than Uncle Pat had to hold her and inspect the babe Baby falls asleep all tuckered out Can't be woken up ;>)


Bath time!


Cute Puddin Toes, loved her bath
Ain't she sweet!

I must say it was a very special weekend. My sister finally with us and the baby, three generations of women from my family gathered to welcome Eden, and loving every moment we were together. Thinking about little Eden being the first member of the next generation. I couldn't help but think of my mom and how she would have loved to have been there with all of us. She was there in spirit though. As we bonded and loved this past weekend as only women can do. I knew deep inside that this was in fact the results of my mother having shared with us the gift of her life and her heart so fully. We were just simply carrying on the gifts of love from the generations that had gone before us.

Isn't she beautiful. It has amazed me how a group adults can spend all day focused on one tiny soul, but it happens in our house these days too.
I think you are probably among thousands who have had a panic attack on the M25. Our worst trip was when we did not move for 3 hours due to serious accident and road closure. In all it took us 5 hours to get to my daughter's who lives 1 hour away, and that was a Sunday.

The beauty of her smile will capture you and bring you closer to the One who created her!

I think she gets more beautiful every time I see her. And just for the record, I'm not tired of seeing pictures of that little angel. Keep them coming.

It's no wonder that you're all smitten. Eden is a beautiful baby girl! It was very pleasant to read about your bonding weekend.

And never worry about boring anyone. Your enthusiasm for grandmotherhood is contagious!
