My new title - Grandmother

Sorry to have been absent for a bit.

I was at my daughter's for a few weeks - waiting for our granddaughter to arrive. She came one day before her due date and is an April Fool's baby. The 16 hours of labor followed by a C section was no joke. But happily Lauren Joelle made her way into the world at 7:51 pm weighing 8 pounds 9 ounces and is 21 inches long.

Mother and daughter are doing very well. The baby is a good eater and is quite strong! I love the faces and sounds she makes. She gets the hiccups a lot which, of course, I recorded. I was sad to leave her but also happy to get home and get some projects going.

My daughter has issued a social media ban but I can post these photos which she shared on facebook.

Luckily I get to go back and see her in two weeks. Thank goodness for facetime!!


  1. Congratulations to your daughter, your new granddaughter and to you Jean... so precious 🍼

  2. Hello Jean, I just had to come across from Jan's blog to say congratulations to you and your family.
    A grand-daughter how wonderful ... enjoy every precious moment.

    All the best Jan

  3. Congrats Grandma!! Enjoy!! BL

  4. Fantastic! Congratulations! When I saw the pic, I immediately got jealous because my kids have a social media ban, as well - that's tough for scrapbooking grannies who love to share our work! Guess we won't be seeing that gorgeous face on your blog - glad you were at least able to share this one beautiful pic! Bloggie Love

  5. Congratulations to you and the whole family...lots of love and blessings to the little bundle of joy :) BL
