Miss "A" and Some Random Thoughts

Hubs and I spent the weekend over on the coast visiting our granddaughter and new great-granddaughter. Of course, she's a doll, but you knew that, right? ;-) Okay, so it can be boring looking at other people's kids and/or grand/great grandkids so I thought I punctuate this with a few random thoughts to have you not be so bored.

Hugs keeps wondering what this new creature is that has invaded his domain. He sniffs her diaper (clean) but doesn't want to go near her face. He's very inquisitive about who this is. ;-)

Aren't their little lips so kissable and sweet with that baby's breath? She's so fresh from heaven she still has that "heavenly skin" on her little hands.

Baby's lips are meant to be kissed!

Look at those sweet hands. They are extremely long and slender like her mummy's but I couldn't capture them as they truly were.

Her little legs and feet are encased in froufrou Jazzy Toes socks.

Just fed and being held by her mummy.

Now she has on the little shoes I made for her.

Tiny bums are also the cutest thing on a baby. She still likes to lay like a frog.

She is very petite like her mummy.

Here she is sitting on her grandmother's lap. That would be MY daughter. You can still see that little peach fuzz newborns have.

But, Ma, ouch, you're crushing my tatas! Her grandmom took this after we left and they went shopping in the car.

And today is my and Love Bunny's 49th anniversary! I see a dinner out at a restaurant in my very near future. :-)

Random Thoughts:

If you litter in Oregon the fine is $6,250.00! I'd say that's a tad much and also wonder how they came up with that figure. They must prize their state highly. In Idaho it's only $350.00—a considerable difference. Nuuuuu, I do NOT litter. My hubby was a Boy Scout Leader for 40 years and taught me well.

Hope is always found to be the flower that blooms from every seed of hopelessness.

Back in the middle 1960s it was Mary Quant who came out with the mini-skirt and forever after brought America out of the Dark Ages of psychopathic modesty. Sad, but true.

Speed limits just seem to be a suggestion for most people as we witnessed in 3 states this past weekend.

Have you ever seen a face so unfortunate that it argued convincingly of the existence of a benign deity?

A target for today is to put on some new clothes. ;-)

To me the world is like an orange of infinite layers which we peel and savor with increasing delight. I love and savor each new day. Think about it. Unhappy? Change your attitude and outlook on this marvelous thing we call Life.


  1. What a beautiful little girl... and those shoes are so pretty...

    I definitely changed my outlook on life yesterday... no-body else is going to drag me out of the doldrums I had better get my climbing gear on and make for the end of the tunnel! lol

    big hugs Alex

  2. oh Connie that baby is sweet!! I love the photos you took and love those little precious shoes you made her..their kitty is the coloring.;)

  3. Connie, what a little darling she is. It must be so wonderful to have a g/gchild! so far I've only got the grandchildren, but who knows...!
    I'm sure there will be lots of visits to see her.

  4. Happy anniversary to you and your hubby Connie and congrats on your newest little family member. She is totally adorable. Babies are such precious little things and I sure miss the days when my nieces and nephew were still that tiny. I could sit and hold them for hours just looking at their sweet little faces. Have a great day!!

  5. she is beautiful!!! Love the shoes you made for her. I agree speed limits seem to be a thing of the past, scary! I don't think Michigan cares if people litter anymore. I can't remember the last time I saw the sign about the fine - but I do see trash everywhere. Sad but true!

  6. Well Connie,
    that is one pretty baby..what a sweet delight to wake up to this morning...I could just gather her up and love on her..adorable..the shoes you made her are perfect.
    I am really anxious now for our new gr-grand due in August...
    love ya, girlfriend...

  7. Just catching up on your posts.
    Don't worry about the random thoughts. I love seeing your sweet baby great-grand daughter Miss'A'.
    Nothing more special than 'family'

  8. Ohhhhh, Ahhhhh! Connie, Miss A is absolutely the breath of baby beauty from above! How blessed you are with such a darling ... I miss this part of life but we are all past that stage ... maybe one day a gr-grand-kid-ling, but no rush ... NO RUSH!

    Your shoes are absolutely CUTE! upon her wee feet. Do treasure her through each stage of life ... Congrats! May Miss A be blessed each moment & ste through her life.

    Your 'wisdoms' are right on, my special friend.

    Have a beau-TEA-ful week.
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  9. Hi Connieness! Oh, little Miss A is a beautiful little girl! Oh, how darling! She has hair! I'm so jealous! Carter is as bald as a pumpkin! :) What precious little shoes you made for her. My mother had made some little felt ones for Carter but I like your fabric ones better! I wish I lived close enough to pop in on our little one, but they live ever so far away! But I'll have to be satisfied with the pictures I get!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  10. She really is beautiful!!! It's not just great grandma that thinks so. What will you have her call you?

    Her shoes/booties are beautiful too. And they are pink!! She's learning at an early age just how gorgeous pink can be.

    Finally, happy anniversary to you and hubs. Now, it's time to get planning the party for next year's golden wedding anniversary.

    Congratulations...anniversary and new great grandchild.
