Well, I have spent the last month in New York with my daughter and her new baby, and I can’t think of a better Christmas present than to have been with them for the last few weeks. On Tuesday, when this blog will post, I will be making my way home across country and I’ll be on the road and away from the computer — so forgive me because I won’t be able to read my posts until I arrive back home in the West.
This picture was taken the first time I saw my new granddaughter, Lila. We were just getting to know each other.
The picture off to the right is my husband getting to know his new granddaughter, also. She was only a few days old.
But I have more photos to share now, also.
Off to the left here is a picture that I love. Here is the new mother and her daughter as they both enjoy a relaxing moment. And off to the left here is the baby’s father, and my son-in-law, Anthony.
What a handsome family! I’ve also decided that although grandchildren are very much for spoiling, but so are one’s own children and in-laws, who also need some spoiling when the baby is born.
Off to the left once again is a picture of the new baby with her half sister. Aren’t they a gorgeous pair?
Big sister is enthusiastic about the new baby and is determined to ensure that her little sister learns how to sing.
Here’s a few pictures that I absolutely love. Notice the baby’s Santa suit.
And another much needed leisurely moment for new mama and baby. It seems to me that both mama and baby need rest after birth. We all know the baby does, but I firmly believe that new mama does, also.
Of course now I am bemoaning the fact that I live an entire continent away from my new granddaughter, and saying good-bye to her, if only for a little while, was very hard to do.
But alas, it was at last time for me to return home. And so now I am making my way back home, just in time for Christmas.
So I will be on the road and hopefully seeing wonderful scenes like the one off to the left. See you soon and Merry Christmas!!
