How Can That Be?

Some little girl started preschool today.
How can that be?
Wasn't she just born yesterday?
My granddaughter Lily is growing up way to fast!!

She was so excited.
She kept telling me this day was coming.
And I can't wait to hear her stories about her first day.
I know you had a fun day my sweet little girl.
I can't wait to hear all about it when you come over tomorrow.
I love you,

I was blog surfing late last night...needed a breather after working on Statistics homework all day. 
And I mean all day. 
I didn't leave the house. 
I started at 9 am. 
I did a few chores around the house for an occasional break and fixed dinner so we wouldn't starve over here.
I put the books away at 10pm.  
Can you believe that one class would take that much work to get through it?!?!  Well it does.  And some of my friends that are in my group struggled with it so much that they never finished the work.  At least I was able to finish mine. I'm not sure it is correct - but it is done!

I was finally relaxing...
I saw a post on a blogger - friends site ~ so I copied and pasted it.

Sawyer Is Home

My cousin's little girl, Sawyer, took a little longer to get home than some.
She had some issues with jaundice.
 I'm not sure how high her bilirubin levels got...I just know that it was a stressful time for her parents. 

She is better and on her way home!!

Isn't she a cute little baby??

A New Cousin

My cousin Andrea had her second baby today!!
We haven't seen each other in awhile.  She grew up in Ohio where my family is from and now she lives in Texas.  Thank goodness for social media tools like facebook - we can actually keep in touch and I feel like I am more in tune with her now then when we just wrote the occasional letter to each other.  I would love to see her in person though...
Her husband is in the Marines - and just returned from active duty this week.  Just a couple of days ago. Just in time to see his new little girl being born.  I am so happy that he was able to get back in time and I know that it meant alot to Andrea.
I haven't heard how her labor was - and the LandD nurse in me wants all of the details, but I do know that they are both fine and that her labor went pretty fast.

So without further ado - let me introduce you to Sawyer Paige. 

She weighed in at 8 lbs, 15 oz and has cute chubby cheeks!
Congratulations Jeff, Andrea and big sister Austyn!  I know that you are going to love this new little girl~
Love you guys,
