Sleeping Beauty


Sleeping beauty, little one so fair

blissfully dreaming and unaware

while grandma watches over with loving care

whispering her quiet prayers

My regular morning time ritual has been altered over the past two weeks to include sharing it with this cute little cuddle bug.  She comes in and naps in my room so her mommy can get some extra sleep in the mornings after being awakened throughout the night for feedings.  I’m used having my mornings to myself, but I don’t mind sharing them with my precious granddaughter – I’m cherishing every moment I get to spend with her.  Which mostly includes just watching her sleep.  And praying over her.  ❤

I hope for so many things for her life…


I promise to try not to go too overboard with all things baby in my posts, but as I have always just shared whatever happens to be currently going on in my world, it’s bound to sometimes include my sweet Noelle.

There’s not much going on outside here – everything is drab and dreary, no signs of spring yet, but I’m sure I’ll be sharing about it once there is.  I can’t wait to bring Noelle outside and show her the garden, even though she won’t really know what’s what.  Hey, one is never too young to get acquainted with nature!  😉


Have a wonderful weekend my friends!  May it be filled with beauty, and with…

Love at First Sight


Tears of joy fell from my eyes

as I gazed into hers

it was love at first sight

My new little granddaughter Noelle Marie, only moments old.

❤ ❤ ❤


Hi friends!  🙂

I don’t have much time to write at the moment, but I wanted to send out this quick post to share the happy news that my sweet little granddaughter has arrived!  Omygosh you guys, she’s sooo precious, I love her so much!

She was born via emergency c-section last Wednesday, and boy was that ever traumatic.  I’ll try and share more about it later – right now I’m a bit sleep deprived.  😉

But I’m happy to report that both mother and baby are doing well, and are here at home, gradually getting settled in.

It’s hard to put into words all of the emotions I’ve experienced over this past week, but the one constant is overwhelming love…


I will try and stop by your blogs soon to catch up on what has been going on in your world.  Until then… be well, much love, and many blessings to all of you!


Here are a few more photos of my little blessing…


“I think, therefore I am”   😉


I give my grandma’s arms a “thumbs up!”


Oh you know… just “hanging out” with my grandma


Morning snuggle time at home ❤


Look grandma, no hands!
