Hopping the Year Away

It's been quite the weekend here and I just have to share...

Sweet Pea finally got that baby she has been wanting.
Little Man made his appearance last Friday!
I have to marvel at how different they look. Sweet Pea is a carbon copy of her mama, and Little Man looks just like his daddy! 
He came home yesterday, and was exhausted after that trip!
This Nana, is over the moon excited, but a little lost this morning, as Nana daycare is done for the next 8 weeks. What am I going to do without my little sidekick?
I guess I really do have to dump my sewing room and start cleaning and organizing now.
Eye roll here.
 Thank goodness I have a little diversion coming up the end of the week.
I'm going to visit Carol Swift for a few days. She is missing her monkey boys and monkey girl oh so much, since their move, so we are going to get together and have one big pity party! Well, or party of some kind anyway!

But never fear, I'll be back and we are both ready for 

Are your ready to be serenaded?

  4. He is adorable. You and Carol will have so much fun together.

  5. Gorgeous! Can I say that? Of course, babies are just that - gorgeous.

  6. Oh, such a cutie, Joan!! Congrats on the new grand love!! Enjoy your time with Carol and try not to get into too much trouble! LOL You'll be very busy soon with both of those sweeties!!

  7. Little man is adorable and has a great birthday if I may say so myself! I am sure you will have plenty to keep you busy in those 8 weeks....and have a blast seeing Carol. You will be so busy with 2 little ones when those 8 weeks are up!

  8. Oh what a little blessing!! Baby snuggles are THE best so give him one from me. Alas our wee little one lives clear across the country but we were lucky to get a couple weeks of snuggles in the spring. Congratulations!!!!

  9. That is such a gorgeous photo!!! Have a great time away and then get into that sewing room. That 8 weeks will go so quickly!! ( Karen / Sunburnt Quilts )

  10. Hi Joan! Awwwwww. Little Man is so sweet, and we all know Sweet Pea will love him to death. Just like Nana! Hmm. Eight weeks to fill your time with whatever you want . . . no sidekick, but time to do whatever you want. Yup, that's a hardship. Especially at this time of year when nothing is going on like the holidays or anything. I think a new stocking is needed to be hung by the fire with care. Enjoy and big congrats. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
