and baby makes three

Yes, I became a grandma early this morning for the second time in the last five months. My daughter, Tracy, delivered a healthy, beautiful, little girl at around 3:30 this morning. Ten toes and ten fingers and long, lanky arms, just like her dad. What a precious little baby girl she is.... Mom and dad are doing good, as is Baby G.

And my very first grandchild, well, isn't he just the cutest thing since.... well, since anything? Isn't he just adorable in this polka dot pajamas and pom pom hat? We started babysitting two days a week and boy is it exhausting work! And that's putting it mildly. I don't recall it being so difficult, so exhausting, when I was raising the kids. But by mid-afternoon my head is ready to explode from all the nursery rhymes and the songs and the noises coming out of my head! Seriously. I've come to the conclusion that day care providers do not get paid nearly enough for this 10 hour a day job! But we're glad to be in a position to provide this service to our kids.
