I cannot BELIEVE we are now the grandparents of THREE sweet babies! We are so grateful for each one of them! They sure have our hearts.
One day new :-)
Darsy, say "cheese" (love her little squinty eyes)
Two granddaughters! All the heart eyes.
Family of 4!
Sweet sisters at home
Pop and I had so much fun with Darsy while her parents were in the hospital. Rich was able to work mobile and we went and stayed at Emma's.
Morning book time
While Emma was in labor and we were awaiting updates, we took Darsy to the mall to get her own "baby" at Build A Bear. And one for her new baby sister too. :-)
Approaching Build a Bear...
Darsy couldn't even BELIEVE such a place existed!
She wanted a wacky neon one, but Grammie steered her towards a more classic (and cute) one.
Getting the bear stuffed. The machine was a bit loud, so she wasn't so sure about it.
Choosing names for the bears with Pop.
They (he) chose "Sky" and "Sunshine."
The finished products! (note the Violet theme going on)
She really liked Panda Express for lunch.
That sweet face!
She loved getting on the rides at the mall
(thankfully she doesn't yet know they go on for $1)
Later we made a little Costco run and grabbed some pizza.
She picked every single olive off my slice- girl after my own heart!
The next day when she visited Violet, she brought her new bear and doll stroller we got her. She was so proud and seemed to grow up overnight.
And before I go... don't want to forget my sweet grandson, Duke!
Here are some recent shots of our big boy!
A recent selfie with Duke at Grammie's.
(Just noticed the gun supplies in the background.
Don't worry - everything is ok over here, ha!)
4 months! He smiles so big now!
Still hanging on to those blue eyes...not so much the hair though!
Having rocking time is the BEST!
I think it's safe to say that Duke liked it too.
And one last shot... all my grandkids together for the first time! I think Duke is feeling a little trapped between TWO girls! And he only has girl cousins on Stephanie's side, too! (Poor dude!)
