I can't believe it's been 5 months since my last blog post. My first grandchild was born and August and life has been beautifully busy since. Our sweet Mileena made her entrance into this world on August 5th, 2023.
Between my weekly visits and making things for her for Christmas my other artwork was set aside. And then we also added in me knitting her baptism dress, so my hands have been busy. But I must say I'm so very excited to see her in her beautiful dress tomorrow for her special day.
She has been such a special blessing for our family. I was so excited to be an Oma for the first time this Christmas that I decided to host our family Christmas Eve party. We had about 35 people here at our home and it was incredible. I know she will not remember it, but it will always be a wonderful memory for me.
I have been blessed to experience so much with my granddaughter already and we are just beginning. This week her mommy went back to work and I started my two day a week babysitting. It was so much fun to have her the entire day. Thankfully mother nature was kind and made sure it didn't snow on my two days, since my travel is about an hour each way.
She is already showing such an incredible personality, very independent, happy and bright. She started to roll over this month. The other day she was trying to hold her bottle and her hand coordination is absolutely incredible. Perhaps we will have another artist in the family one day.
I will be adding pics of some of my creations that I have made for her, but for now I'll share a picture of her dress.
