Beautiful Baby

I finally got to go back to WV to meet my first grandbaby.  I was so excited I could hardly contain myself! I felt like a preschooler....lol The drive to West Virginia was so nice.....relaxing and beautiful.  I got to spend some very special quality time with my mother as well.  She ventured with me to meet my granddaughter (her GREAT granddaughter) for the first time.
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!

First family photo :o)
