Oh my, my, my! We are swimming in baby love! Our newest, and really it's only been a little over four months since our last presentation...but our newest new grandbebe has arrived! Lily is now the proud and boy do I mean proud and also very protective big sister of Katherine Alice. Those in the know and you all will now be in that proud number call her Kate! What a dear and sweet baby she is!
Mom, Lisa and Daddy, Tim are happy and proud as can be. Kate is a very darling and sweet baby. Lily is very protective right out of the gate! The physician's assistant came for her 'duty call' and walked up to the bassinet where Kate was sleeping. As the PA pulled out her stethoscope, Lily rushed up to the bassinet and cried out, "Don't you mess with her!" She then tried to roll the bassinet away. After much explaining and persuasion she agreed to back off, but was keeping an eagle eye on the PA her entire exam. It didn't help the PA's cause when Kate was not happy with the cold stethoscope or having her shirt removed. I thought for a second Lily was going to grab the bassinet and make a run for the door!
Mom distracted Lily by getting her to play with her 'own' baby...baby doll Belle. Lily enjoyed using Kate's stash of diapers on her doll baby...
The next visit Lily was missing her family. She sought some solace in reverting to old places...
Today was Kate's 'Coming Home' day. Lily had been staying with her other 'Grammy' but was here in the morning and early afternoon. Once Kate was released from the hospital her parents swung by to pick up Lily so they could all go home together. Before they came Sush and Lily spent the morning washing (at Lil's request) I swear, the sea glass and shells on a platter in the bathroom. Puzzles, books, blocks and cars were added to our entertainment repertoire. After lunch we played baby dolls and then finished up outside on the trampoline. Dad surprised us as he came around the back of the house and the happy family headed home.
And while I have a captive audience I'll throw in some of my latest photographs of Grace just for good measure. I mean we really are experiencing a lot of baby love around here, folks!
Hope you all have days filled with baby love, no matter how old your babies are! I have some as old as 37 so they may get bigger, but like the book, Love You Forever, 'As long as I'm living...my baby they'll be'!
