A Fresh New Love

Life couldn't be sweeter! 
My newest Grandchild...

Evelyn Kay

 She was born on the 16th, weighing 7 lbs, 6 ozs.  She has a head full of dark black hair and right now her eyes are deep brown.  Everyone says she looks just like her brother, but I think I see more of mommy in her.  Then again, I was there when she was born, so I know!
 Big Brother wasn't quite as sure of the baby as the rest of us...he warmed up to her later last night.  I know they told him he was getting a baby sister, but at 3 it still wasn't sinking in.  We took him home for an afternoon nap and to play with his friends.  He, Grandpa & I were looking at the pics I had uploaded and he was ok with the baby, but still not impressed!  But when we got to a picture of all of us standing around mommies bed, he got the saddest look on his face...and a tear formed.  "That's my mommy", he said.  And he rubbed the tears from his eyes.  Such a brave little man.  So we loaded up the car to go see her again ("her" being the baby for us, Ethan only wanted to see mommy!)

 This precious picture is from his first encounter with Evelyn.  He really never would even look at her!   But as I said, he really wanted to see her when we got there last night.  After getting cleaned up this morning, we will go up for about an hour. 
   Then I think we will do a little bit of local sight seeing...they are right on Puget Sound and it couldn't be more beautiful!  I am taking lots of photos, so I will have lots to scrapbook when I get home!(and I am missing scrapbooking! I haven't been this long without it in a long time)
   So I'm dreaming of sweet kids and scissors and glue....you keep dreamin' too!
