It truly was hard to contain my emotion but I managed. She is soooooo beautiful!!! She was much tinier in person than in all of the pics. Once she was placed in my arms, she didn't come out unless I was going back to mom's.
I had a terrific time with my son and his new family. His fiance' also has a 2 year old son and it was so heartwarming to hear him call me grandma as well. I took them shopping, to get their first family photo done, and even picked out little Aria's dress :o). I can't say that I held back any....lol I LOVE being a grandmother!!! It is such a wonderful feeling that is indescribable.
I got to babysit the kids one Saturday night and of course, my little grandson fell asleep within 20 minutes in my lap and I held little Aria the entire time. I just couldn't put her down since I am not there everyday to see her. I had to get my time in.
My visit with my mom was the most relaxing family visit I have had in a very long time. We went on evening banana split runs and watched lots of Baggage until 2 am....lol Oh, and most importantly.....played CANDY CRUSH!!!
Well, it's getting ready to storm here in good ol' Mayberry. Much love to all!
