A Day With The Grandchildren

So bare with me...I have a slew of photos of my Grandchildren!! Yes, I am one of those!!! I have an online brag book!! Isn't Emerson beautiful???? I am just smitten with her! She has such a fun personality too. She was napping quite nicely when all of a sudden a little grin appeared...The next thing you know, she is full fledged, open mouthed, smiling.....Oops...it must have been gas....Some cuddle time with Grandma will make it all better!! (that is not what it looks like)TJ and the kids played outside and got filthy dirty, but had a great time. At one point I had 8 kids in my backyard. We did school this morning and finished it all except Science. TJ joined us for our "My Body" project. (Charlotte will do hers tomorrow...she had a rough afternoon)
I was really proud of Zach...he really dislikes coloring and he did a great job and his cutting was perfect. Today we did the brain and the heart. Zach already had his brain from last week. Next week we will do the kidneys...I think.
Once Emerson was up and fed, she needed some brother love...TJ is so good with her. He will stop whatever he is doing, run over and kiss her and give her a "pat" and then go right back to his play.
Paw Paw came home and got in on the action...After dinner, I read them a story, gave TJ a quick bath, put Emerson in her jammies (I insisted Rachel take a break) and Emerson and I had a nice little visit.Both kids ready for bed....I am thinking Emerson was not thrilled about that. Once in her car seat, she made herself clear.She calmed down very quickly, and both grandkids were sent home WIDE EYED and raring to go!! Not sure if all the marshmallows I gave to TJ had anything to do with that.
If you read my last post, you know I took on the challenge to finish 5 projects by New Years Eve. HOW in the world am I going to do that if I cuddle grandbabies all day??? Oh, well...it was not wasted time at least!!
I am truly blessed!!!!

Delicious!!! and Paw Paw looks very pleased with his new grandaughter! I'm also enjoying the fashion show of little outfits, receiving blankets and sleepers :)

So, cuddle away, you'll still get the quilts done and the cuddles are, as you know, irreplaceable!

I am so happy for all of you, Bren, to have this little miracle added to your family.
Hugs,
Niki

Emerson is adorable I'd love to spend the day cuddling her myself! I have Stephanie's "My Body" all rolled up in a tube downstairs - I couldn't part with it when we were done! She's a Freshman now - such wonderful memories!

I know how precious this time is for you with Emerson. They grow up so fast. It doesn't look like she wants to leave you.

I have straightened the sewing room as best I can right now. My chair is still in Memphis, guess I'll be sitting in the card-table chair which is murder on my bad back.
No pictures are anything until I move the rest of the things and have some money. But I can work in there. I think I'll need another shelf unit and table soon so I can do other crafts(the table)and not have to put them away to sew.
Enjoy that baby.

I love to watch babies sleep. I would not get anything done if she were at my house. Yes, you are blessed.
