Happy Me!

**Warning - babies galore - no sewing - no quilting - no knitting - no stitching**
I'm still coming back down to earth after spending a fabulous few days away at my son's. Remember those babies I told you about in previous posts? Well, I finally got to meet them!!
Of course you will understand when I tell you they are the most beautiful babies in the world - and of course all the other grandmothers out there will dispute that :-) but that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Pretty certain that is Saydee on the left and Kaliah on the right.
Or is it Kaliah on the left and Saydee on the right?
Saydee has a red mark on her nose which is our main identifier! 
Naturally it was cuddles all round and I spent many a happy hour with one or the other in my arms. The girls were about 7 weeks old when I visited, my how tiny they are but growing really well...they have plenty of chubby little rolls!
And speaking of rolls, I was there for one milestone; they both rolled over for the first time.
All too soon it was time for home as duty called. We still have a handful of cows left to calve and of course all those babies need feeding.
I will be forever thankful to YD and her hubby for spending/taking holidays to enable me to 'pop over the ditch' at this busy time of the year.
Thank you so much Laura and James ♥
There's been no crafting around here for a while, I didn't take any with me (strange, huh?). Last week I got a bit snuffly so I spent my days eating oranges and having lemon honey drinks in an effort to ward off any germs.....I was dreading having to put off my trip because of it. Luckily by delaying my flight a couple of days I was alright to breath on the girls.
Ok, just one more......
 Normal transmission should resume soon, those ufos aren't going to finish themselves.
Thanks for visiting, have a happy week,

Oh Raewyn they are just soooo gorgeous. Gosh they look good for 7 weeks. That is a beautiful photo of you at the end holding them both - you look like an old hand at it all :-) So glad you got to get over to see them in the midst of this busy time of year on the farm.

I just said to mr D. last night, I bet Raewyn is busy with babies! They look so cute, and I'm glad you had a great time cuddling them both! Nothing beats being a granny/nana/grand-mere... it's a very special role! (What will they call you?)

Sue said...

I adore the photo of you with your son and the babies, but the very last one, OMG so beautiful. Hope you have that in a frame somewhere, you look so happy with your arms full of delicious small girls!!! Sneak in as many baby photos as you can, I really don't think anyone will complain. And of course they are the MOST BEAUTIFUL babies ever.
