Introducing Our Newest Addition to the Family

…born January 24, 2020

Our son and his beautiful wife just blessed us with a new granddaughter on the 24th of January. Her name is Sevin (pronounced Seveen) and she came into this world weighing just over 8 pounds. We are looking forward to meeting her when we fly to London, England on March 16th. For now we have photos, videos and live WhatsApp chats.

It’s amazing to me what I won’t do for my granddaughter. Getting down at her level is not easy for me. It’s one reason why I want to get into better shape. On Friday my husband and I spent the day in Hamilton to give our daughter some time to work on her at home business. The teachers here are on rotating strikes so we try to help whenever we can. Here are some of the images of our playful day.1941EAAA-A8DB-4B77-A051-91C6A63CBD3DAC63114D-8B1E-4543-8FF8-D3A0CA42CD79FF86BE3A-ACF4-4DC0-B5C2-CF2BCD51B890927CFA69-1077-4945-8770-B60D8CC93FBEAA54387E-ECF1-4BB4-A0B7-6ABA3392CA9FDD138CEA-24F7-445D-B5DE-EE2C44189EA1_1_201_a1E71CA08-38C2-4E5B-B0B8-34993C24211F_1_201_a

30 Day Creativity Challenge – Day 19

…thanks to Rainee for hosting the 30 Day Creativity Challenge\

I’ve been making art with my granddaughter again and making pizza with her. I’ve always loved her free style but she does have a vision and you don’t want to tamper with that. That was clearly evident when she decided to make her pizza in the shape of a ‘stop sign’. The adults kept wanting her to add cheese to her creation but she refused and when they didn’t listen she had a melt down. Oma and Papa to the rescue. Lots of dough left over so we started again. Here are our efforts from last Sunday.

A Photo a Week – At Play

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week

My granddaughter and her second cousin got together last week and all seemed to go well as they chased each other around the room, giggling and laughing as they ran. That is until he caught her and accidentally pushed her into the wall. I could tell that it hurt and it took a few minutes of mommy cuddles to calm her down. The two cousins continued to play but the age difference of two years clearly affected how they played. My granddaughter is four and her cousin is two. She was fascinated with his computer game and he didn’t want her to play with it. He liked her stuffed toy but preferred to throw it around. I’m sure as they get older they’ll have more in common. Time will tell.DEAEAB38-06A4-4085-AC77-B87BDC8F2F8B440F3AA0-2CAB-4B12-A3AC-056ADA3431E35F21CC92-0EF2-4880-8890-E634ED3559C2
