Kisses from Heaven

I can't even begin to explain the love that a grandchild brings into one's life!  It is beyond words, and each time I am freshly amazed at the instant flood of love that overtakes me upon sight of a new grand baby!  Adrenaline junkies should have grand kids, because it just has to surpass jumping off buildings and such by a mile!
This is our new little wonder!  Momma and baby are both beautiful, and doing great!

Bell just can't get enough of her.  It's all she talks about, and she wants to hold her continually!

Spidey is in love with her too, he told me yesterday that even her sneezes are cute.

Of course, her parents are smitten as well!  Daddy's still a little apprehensive about what to do with brand new little girls.

You've gotta know I'm over the moon for her!  
                                                  It is certainly no accident that we call them GRAND!

Diaper Bouquet

We had a family baby shower for our son and daughter-in-law a couple of weeks ago, and this is one of the decorations I made for it.

I got the idea from Pinterest, but I couldn't find a tutorial, so I just winged it. I used chop sticks for the stem and rolled the diapers around the sticks. I cut pieces of pink ribbon and stuck the stick through the center of the ribbon piece, then tied a smaller green ribbon to secure it all. Once the flowers were made I stuck them into a styrofoam ball covered with a piece of the extra wide mesh ribbon like the kind used to make wreaths. I used that as filler in the bouquet and stuck it all in a cute little pink vase. It was super simple to make, and I was really pleased with how it turned out.

I made a few other decorations too. I'll try to post those later. My camera was acting up so my daughter took some of the pictures with hers, and she hasn't had time to load them yet.
