Smiles

What could possibly keep me away from stamping for 6 weeks??? This picture pretty much says it all. Chloe is simply amazing. She is such a fighter. Heart surgery at 5 days old, Omphalocele surgery at 5 weeks old...and at 6 1/2 weeks old, a healthy, happy little baby back at home! Katie took these pictures of Chloe & I this weekend and I think they're going to be favorites :) ! I will be heading home later this week & I do promise to start showing you stamping projects again. Lots of ideas and a bunch of brand new stamps waiting for me at home...but for now, I'm just going to enjoy these last few days with Chloe and a few days with my husband who's coming to visit too! I do miss my stamping, but this family time has been precious! To thank you for your patience while I've been away...there will be BLOG CANDY coming up soon...so be sure to check back :) !!!
Here's me & Chloe again. I had so many people tell me that being a grandma was going to be very special, but oh my goodness, I had no idea it could be this good. Couldn't be any better.


Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome week :) !!!

Nancy, you've got to be the best grandma I've ever seen! That first photo is PRICELESS and needs to be published somewhere! It just makes me giggle! Chloe is BEAUTIFUL !!! What a strong baby girl she is!

Sue said...

Nancy,
What an incredible picture...if only you could know what she is thinking with that darling smile.
I am sure it was "I love you grandma!". It's the best when you actually hear them say that to you.
They grow so fast and she'll be telling you that before you know it. Stamping can wait - moments with grandchildren ARE priceless and should be enjoyed for as long as we can!
Thanks for sharing ....

So happy for you..a lot of prayers went up for that little one. It will be hard to leave her. I want to share our good news. We got to see our baby on ultrasound yesterday and all is good!!! We lost the first one so a lot of tears and prayers later we will have him by end of June. Praise be to God!! Get enough kisses to last until you see her again.
