baby Alice



Here she is: 2 days old. She stayed longer at the hospital than her mom and dad-as she had to go under the "bili lights" to deal with a bit of jaundice, coming home the next day however. I was told she slept best when I held her-apparently Alice finds me quite calming :-) I was baby holder while they both took a much deserved nap and in fact my son was still sleeping when I finally left tonight. It's nice to have a baby around but I won't be losing any sleep tonight *vbg* I dropped off the pooh quilt which was a big hit and it was immediately put in the washer so Alice could be using it soon. She is about five and a half pounds and quite a snuggler. I think spending time with Alice is going to be taking up a lot of my free time for quite a while-it's nice to be able to offer advice and support to new parents. Mostly I tell them they will all learn to be a family together. Life just doesn't get any sweeter than a new grandbaby!

I did mention this was the first of many quilts for the baby princess...guess I will be adding to that pink stash after all lol.

Awwwww, what a cutie!

*putting fingertips to my forehead*

I think I see... is it a dress? No, it's jammies... and a quilt... and matching pillows... no... it's ALL of the above in her future!

One of my most favorite things I got from a sewing grandmother was a stuffed lamb sitting on a pillow - and underneath the pillow there was a zipper, with a 'secret' pocket, to hide my pj's in when I made the bed!

YOur granddaughter is beautiful, and what a great mom you are being baby holder while new parents got some rest. Can you come to Ireland and hold my 2 year old, I need some rest, LOL!

I need to catch up on my reading too, I've been overwhelmed by life these days!
