The young lad was born on the 28th August 2010. From what I have seen of him so far he is a very calm, settled, placid baby. His little cry is so cute - it’s not an angry cry, it’s an informative cry - telling you that he is cold, hungry or uncomfortable and could you please fix it up soon.
I can’t really describe what it is like to be a grandmother - I don’t think it has totally sunk in yet. But one thing I do know, and have fully realised, is this… I can cuddle him and then give him back. I’ve heard people - mostly grandparents themselves - saying this but now I understand it in a very real way. I am not concerned about when I will get my next sleep but I am so totally willing to sacrifice some of my sleep so that Annelise can get the rest that she needs.
Oh the joys of being a grandmother!!! A new era has begun and I’m all for it.

Layout Number 9 for Crop Bootcamp at Blue Bazaar.

PS It's a long time since I used vellum and a long time since I printed my journalling from the computer. The former I may do again soon but the latter was a little bit trying. :)
