The BEST June ever!!!!

I think I have a pretty good life! It may not be big and glamorous but it certainly is all mine and I love it. I have family and friends that I love and whom love me back ( so important in life!). I share my life with a several special canines. My home is modest but it is all ours and It is my sanctuary. I have steady employment that keeps all the bills paid and doesn't overly stress me out. I get to go on a nice vacation every year, sometimes even two! 


I am a GRANDMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So blessed! My hubby and I are over the moon and haven fallen so deeply in love with Victoria, our Grandaughter. I find words difficult to express this feeling.

My daughter asked me to be with her during her labor and delivery. It was very exciting and exhausting at the same time. During her labor we were chatting, to keep her mind off.... You know, things.  I told her that it still amazes me to this day how I felt my entire life shift when I gave birth to her. It was like things that it thought were important the day before just all melted away and I had this brand new awareness of life and love. 

The point of that little story is that it happened all over again for me. It is like I could just feel my heart expand and take in this new little one and now I am made new again. I am a grandmother. LOL!! I just like saying it! I like being in the grandparent 'Club'! 

Makes me want to shout it from the rooftops and give great big hugs to all the grandparents out there! 

And now I have a little girl to sew for again!! Yipeee!!!

Meet Victoria Ann

Just hours old and checking out her world!

Napping on grandma's chest!

I made a Moby wrap to carry her around while my daughter does laundry and errands.

Grandpa, singing to her darling girl!

The proud papa just minutes after she was born!  A big smile to hide the tears of joy in his eyes!

I actually did get a couple items sewn in June, never blogged about them. June was a bit crazy. My daughter was put on bed rest and due to her bad back was in quite a bit of pain at the end of her pregnancy. The doctors gave her muscle relaxers to use but she needed to be under constant supervision as a fall risk. So they moved into our house for several weeks and I was able to work from home during that time. I spent most of my spare time with Melissa and keeping her company. This meant blogging fell to the side for a bit. 
After the 4th of July weekend, I resume my regular work travel schedule. It has been so nice to have the time at home to take case of my daughter and enjoy the first several weeks of my Grandaughter!

So blessed!!
