Someone new arrived last month to join adoring siblings who all want to hold her!  She WILL be spoiled, but hopefully will be as sweet and peaceful as she looks in this photo!

 

Big sister and imp, Emma Rose, will have to share the limelight!

She seems a little interested and sometimes sweet, but there have been a couple of incidents—such as climbing into the bassinet and a little love pat administered to new baby sister with too much gusto!

It’s fun to play dress up with high heels when you’re not holding new sister!

I loved dressing up in my mom’s high heels when I was little.  I especially remember my mom’s open toed black patent leather stilettos!  I  loved my pair of plastic high heels when I was five.  It was my consolation prize for having my tonsils out!  I can still remember clattering down the halls of the hospital in my “heels”.  I think they were sparkly!  Did YOU ever own a pair of those high heels?  I’m wondering if they still make them!  They were slippery and a little dangerous!

 

TOY HIGH HEELS

When you tire of babysitting you can always play with the ponies.  Yes, little sisters rock!

Or you take a spin around the farm!  With supervision of course!

Eldest daughter is still recovering.  It wasn’t an easy pregnancy and little Grace arrived 3 weeks early.

But after a stay in the NICU she appears to be perfect!

And she is rarely alone.  There is always someone watching over her!

It brings it all back with sweet remembrance -- how I sometimes miss having young children in my house—all the time!  But I must say that I am REALLY glad my high heel days are over!

Congratulations! She is adorable as is her big sister. So glad that your daughter is doing much better. She is a very pretty mama.

Take care...oh, yes, I had a pair of those darling heels when I was young. They broke much too soon. I loved them.

Congratulations to your whole family. Baby and big sister are both adorable.
No high heels for me. I was a complete tom boy and hated dresses much to the dismay of my mother!

Congratulations V! and of course your daughter and her family! Little Grace is just beautiful and dainty and petite. She will be a tough little girl with big sis Emma around for sure! That's just the way it is! :)

Oh she is so beautiful! Your daughter and oldest granddaughter are too, really!

Congratulations to all of you.

Yes, I remember wearing those toy high heels, and I loved them. They do still ,make them, and now I wonder how any child can clatter around in them as they sure aren't made to be comfortable.
