They Have Arrived!

September 10, 2015

Contrary to what others may believe, it’s my opinion that not all newborns are the most beautiful babies anyone has ever seen – unless they’re your own. With that said …

Drum roll, please!

I’d like to announce that my husband and I are officially grandparents to two gorgeous baby girls. It doesn’t matter how pudgy, scrawny, blotchy, wrinkly, bald, pimply, or goofy-looking they are. They are ours, and with the exception of our daughter, these girls are not only the most beautiful babies I’ve ever seen, but their personalities are already over the top!

Ta Da!

The Girls!

Silence is Golden

Silence is Golden

Why are you so noisy?

Why are you so noisy?

Wait! Is it lunchtime?

Wait! Is it lunchtime?

Me! Me! Feed me first!

Me! Me! Feed me first!

Life is so exhausting Life is so exhausting!

Life can be so exhausting!

What are you looking at? My hat? Get over it!

What are you looking at? My hat?
Get over it!

These girls are going to add so much joy to our lives. We’re such lucky grandparents!

Winnie-the-Pooh and Twin Girls, Too!

July 23, 2015

We recently moved from the Midwest back to the East Coast. It’s been an adventure, but the best part of it is that we are now closer to our daughter and son-in-law. And the pièce de résistance is the impending births of identical twin girls. Yes, we’re going to be grandparents!

Last Sunday we celebrated the upcoming births with a baby shower. Close friends and family made the Winnie-the-Pooh-themed gathering a perfect afternoon. Come join the fun!
