New Birth/New Reason to Sew Something with LOVE

April's beautiful baby girl, Camilla was born yesterday evening. She is a healthy little one, "practically perfect in every way, " to quote Mary Poppins which her big sister and I get the privilege of seeing on stage tomorrow. Aelyn is especially interested in the costumes. See, sewing is in the blood.
Life is so wonderful and I feel extremely blessed to be a grammy of two precious girls and we also have one charming young lad who belongs to April's sister Erin. My mind is busy thinking of the things that I will sew... a tiny dress for Camilla, a pink skirt for Aelyn (she picked the fabric) and a new toy tote for Jayden.
Off the sewing theme I must share with you a top moment of my life which occurred last night just an hour an a half before the birth of the baby. My husband and I were waiting at the hospital. I was pretty emotional, bawling my eyes out. We walked to the parking lot to pick up Aelyn who had fallen asleep on the way and here comes April, in labor and walking through the parking lot under the light of the street lamps, just glowing with expectancy. She looked like the Madonna to me. Then here comes Jeff charging after her in his Chuck Taylor's, looking like prince charming. They were simply the most beautiful people in the world. Jeff had wanted to drop her off at the door but April insisted on walking. Well, my tears kept falling and I took a mental picture of the moment that I will hold forever dear to my heart.
Happy Easter or Weekend or Whatever you celebrate to All our friends,
Anita, a very content grammy.
