So, first things first, here's a few photos of the newest addition to the family, Khloe Mae, who arrived just a tad early, on June 9 at just a little before six am. She weighed in at 7 lbs 10 oz, and looks mostly like daddy with just enough of mom in her that there's absolutely no question that she's going to be a natural beauty with a heart and spirit to match.
I had devoted an Etsy treasury to our new little bundle of joy earlier this week that you can find here, but I'll repeat the theme of the treasury - which was Wishes for Khloe.
To my newborn granddaughter Khloe, I wish you these--
Angels to surround you and keep you safe,
Peace, love and hope throughout your life,
The beauty of nature to delight you,
Beautiful dreams to aspire to,
Sunshine and blue skies,
A solid path beneath your feet,
Hearts full of love all around you,
Time to be whimsical,
Reasons to celebrate,
Things to make you smile.
Shooting stars to wish on,
Nutritious food to nourish your body,
Curiosity and passions to nourish your mind,
A reason to dance,
And wherever life leads you -- may you always know that you are loved.
It was definitely a week of happy surprises for the family all the way around - in addition to Khloe's arrival, my oldest son landed a new job and they announced that they'll be building a new home which should be finished early in 2013!
Both of the school-aged grandkids are out for the summer, and everyone's up to their eyeballs in family birthday celebrations this month.
I also found out that I (who rarely wins anything, ever... seriously) won some free beads from Magpie Gemstones for being a blogging buddy.
So, now you know what I've been up to, how about you? Anything exciting to share?
