Visiting Baby M


I've been up staying with Son and Daughter-in-Law, assisting with the baby so that they could catch up on some sleep. She is, naturally, very adorable. Here she is with the cot quilt that I made two years ago in the hope that one day, a suitable recipient would come along.



Daughter 2 came to visit and presented Baby M with the blanket she's been working on.



Isn't it nice?



Baby M's big sisters seem remarkably unperturbed.



The sun shone on us.




Then I came home and Grandson drew a picture of me. "I need white chalk for your hair, Granny." Gee, thanks, Grandson. I like to think that my hair is grey with brown bits, but I suppose chalk doesn't come in that colour. "One of your hands is rubbing your tummy." Yes, I can see that.


How I miss Baby M, with her so-soft little cheeks, big puzzled dark blue eyes, quiet snuffles and questing mouth. I'm so sad that she's far away. But I missed the others when I was up there with her. And yes, I do know that I'm lucky to have grandchildren at all.

  3. She's so cute and you did such a pretty job on the quilt - hand-quilting and all! As did DD1 - how fun to have another visitor. I can hardly wait until we see pictures of her playing with N and L. And one must ask - do you frequently rub your tummy in the presence of grandson LOL???

  4. You are very lucky to have such bright, beautiful grandchildren. We have none, nor shall we ever, but I always enjoy hearing about yours.

  7. Glad you're finally there - a "multiple granny!" Or does "a granny of many" sound better? Isn't it nice when wishes come true?
