My New Love

My beautiful first grandchild has arrived.  She finally came into this world on January 22 at 7:38 am. She was 7 lbs 3oz and 19 1/2" long.  Her name is Lyla Eliabeth Sudar (Elizabeth is my middle name as well) It was love at first sight for me and her parents! In fact  I think those were the first words my daughter said "I love her!" as she was laid on her chest.  I was there for the delivery and was given the honor of cutting the cord (after squeamish Daddy declined). It was an amazing and awesome experience that words truly cannot describe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I really didn't think I could feel as much love for another baby as much as I felt for my own.....but I was wrong.  Being a grandparent is going to be FUN!!!!!  And to think we will be blessed with another one at the end of June!!!  I am in dreamland!!!!!!

Her first photo taken moments after she was born:


Finally able to hold her!! (Don't judge the lack of makeup. Teehee. 😆 It was a long night!):


Daughter2 has a dog named Gordon whom I babysat while she was in pre-labor and labor.  He gets along great with our dogs so it really was no problem.  Yesterday they stopped in before heading for home.  I think Gordon loves this new addition.....Daughter2 says he's all concerned when Lyla makes even makes a noise!
Here is when Mom came to pick him up....he's not really sad!  Lyla had kisses!!

I have had so many congratulation wishes from friends and family (except my one cousin whom I still haven't heard from..... hurts me deeply). My friend Kim even sent ME flowers!!!!!!  I truly am blessed in so many ways.  My life is not perfect but I don't think there is anything I would change.  I know I am so lucky.

One day I will catch up on my sleep.....as you get older I think it takes longer!!!!  But who cares.....it was all sooooooo worth it!!!!  Now to finish quilt 2 for baby Lyla!
