A New Perspective on Life....


Brooklyn - Two days old.

Brooklyn having a chat with Mom...


Proud big sisters!


Grandma Jo and Brooklyn.

When I became a mother, over 30 years ago, I did not think that I could love anyone more than my own children. I did not think my heart could hold more love than it did for my two children. Now that I am a grandmother of three beautiful little girls, I have come to realize that with each one, my heart grows larger and has the capacity to love them all dearly and equally. I enjoyed my time with my daughter, son-inlaw and daughter. A mother's heart could not be more proud and full!

    Awwww Jo she is beautiful, as are your other two granddaughters.

    And look at you! You are lovely, all proud and holding on!

    Great photos. Great emotion. And so true - I didn't think I could love a child more than my firstborn, but do. ;0)

    G'day David! Yes, my mother and grandmother always beamed when their grandchildren were around!

    Jeni: I often joke that if I had to do it over again, I would have had my grandchildren first! They have taught me so much about patience and love capacity!

    M&M: Kaylee and Lizzy had that much hair too except Lizzy's was lighter.

    Hi Bob! Yes they have bears and dolls and toys upto the rafters!

    Ellie: Yes, and how our mother felt about our kids!

    CrazyCath: Children and grand children are the best gifts we can ever receive!

    Jo, I can't decide who's the prettiest girl--Brooklyn, her big sisters, or YOU!

    I believe your expanding heart has increased your glow. You lucky matriarch you.
