I Love Lucy!

A little over a month ago I left blog land so I could go and witness the birth of my second grandchild. While I missed you, my dear blog friends, I was right where I should have been. I believe introductions are in order so without further ado........Here's Lucy!
I have to say she's the cutest little thing ever. Hey, isn't it a Grandma's prerogative to say that?
Big Sister Lily gets her first glance at her little sister Lucy!
What do you mean I'm on house arrest? I'm only a few hours old. What could I have done?
Lucy and her first teddy bear - pink of course!
Grandma got to stay quite awhile so here I am at 12 days old.
(Gotta love that smile!)
Big sister Lily loves her little sister!

I'll share other pictures during the coming week. I'm looking forward to visiting and seeing what everyone has been up to these past few weeks.
That's all for today - this Grandma needs some rest! :)

Maria said...

Congratulations, Carletta, what a lovely little grandchild you have got! The pictures of Lucy and Lily are adorable! Thanks for sharing :)

Rose said...

Oh, Carletta!!!!! She's a living doll and Lily gets prettier every time I see her. I feel like she has really grown since you last posted a picture. But maybe that is cause she is beside Lucy.

I have been checking back almost daily. Except for a period when I was sick...what day was she born on, weight, etc???? I am so happy for you.

Raven said...

She's so beautiful! What a gorgeous pair she and her sister are... and she is so alert already at such a young age. You have been missed. Looking forward to lots of new photos. Welcome "home."
