And now I get so emotional when I see a new picture of her, or better yet hold her, or hear my son say "isn't she beautiful?" Just the other day when I was picking out a porta crib for our house - I could feel the emotions welling up inside me. And then when the mail came the other day, well the flood gates let loose. Look at some of the pretty cards we got congratulating us on our new grand daughter. Each one means so much!
And I got teary again when I opened this package from Sherrie, who is one of my followers and lives in SC. She is a Grammy too and she told me she saw something when she was at the beach and she just had to send it to me. Look at this pretty this bag...
And lookey here.... isn't this the most darling thing you ever saw?? L for Liliana!! What is it? I hear you asking.....
A burp cloth!! Isn't that the most clever idea! I mean if a sweet little girl is going to do something as indelicate as burp and spit up, she might as well do it in style. And look what Sherrie wrote... "because spit happens!" Isn't that the cutest?
So I was already blubbering and then I unwrapped the second package and Niagara Falls let loose! Look at the PERFECT book she got me!! Remember Mama duck hatching her eggs right by our front steps? Well Sherrie thought this was just right for me to read to my "little duckling". And it is. I LOVE books and this one will hold a place of honor in my library. I am going to print out the pictures of Mama duck and the eggs and tape them inside the cover of the book to show Liliana some day.
THANK YOU so much Sherrie. You really touched my heart with your thoughtfulness and kindness.
And then when we got home from visiting this sweet little bundle of pure joy the other day,
Thank you so much Carol and Jerry. It meas so much that you thought of our Liliana.
And Saturday was a pretty emotional day for other reasons as well. It was the day Liliana got to meet my parents, her great grandparents for the first time.
But she didn't make it easy. Our little bundle of love slept soundly for the first hour. My mom was ready to climb in the car seat with her and just start loving on her! And I was too!
Yes, it certainly has been an emotional journey, and one that I am thrilled to be taking.
Until Next Time - Hugs, Grammy Linda
