Some times falling in love is instant.... This is Layla Rose, my great granddaughter. So precious. As I was getting ready to go to my sister's to drop off her birthday gift, I received a call from my daughter Liz. She said meet me at the Steak& s Shake in Lafayette.
So here's Teddy Bear and I getting to know Layla. This was the best lunch ever. She's three weeks old and already at the steak/shake. There was a copper red haired baby behind us and she was 8 weeks. old. I do not remember ever taking my babies out in cafes or stores that young. Times change, I guess.
This is Brock(Layla's father), his sister Lynzie(Layla's aunt) and Emily (Layla's mommy). Brock and Emily are in love and so courteous of each other, I am impressed. They seem to be relaxed with the baby. Emily is a natural mother. I wish them all the very best. I'll do whatever I can to help them . I know my daughter Liz sure will help..
I was going to see my sister yesterday, but I can drop by today. This was a lucky chance to see Liz and her family, plus Karen (liz's twin) came too. We had a little lunch , talked a bit and said our goodbyes. We all left at the same time. There were seven of us and baby Layla made eight.
I hope to see the baby again before another three weeks. I was going to have dinner at Liz's house and be with all of them , when Layla was 2 weeks old, but I got sick and could not go. Now I am feeling fine.
Hope everyone has a good day ...it's the first day of spring. Cloudy and damp here. It is spring !!!! Hugs for everyone . XO
Isn't she beautiful? What a blessing a healthy baby is. You sure don't look old enough to have a great grandbaby, Susie. You are doing something right! xo DianaReplyDelete
Diana, You are so kind. I was ever so thankful that Layla is healthy. Emily is nursing her so that will help with the baby's immune system. I am so in love with this new baby and oh my gosh, my daughter Liz is almost obsessed. LOL. There's plenty of love for them all...I think that will help. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Don't you love how a new life mesmerizes us?
Happy Spring, Susie!
Hi Lynne, I already adore that baby. Only held her once and smelled her sweet baby smell. I wish I could hold for at least an hour. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
What a cutie..No, we never took babies out this early..There are an awful lot of bad bugs out there but they still have their Moms immunity and I guess it's OK..Glad you are feeling better..They change very quickly at this age so see her often..But then, you know that...ReplyDelete
Missy, I am so thankful that Emily is nursing Layla...get that immune system going strong. Oh Missy, I know they change so quickly...and my life seems to be going full speed ahead...the years pass so fast. We better enjoy everyday we get. Blessings dear friend, xoxo,SusieDelete
Layla Rose is so precious. I know what you mean......sometimes I see babies out in the world at 2 weeks, and it blows me away. I didn't take my babies out in the world until they were a bit older. Brock and Emily are such a cute couple, and it's nice to see there is so much love and respect between them.
Congratulations on your great granddaughter, Susie. wow, that's something special.
Sheri, It all happened so fast and that is how life truly is...way too fast. Better love everyone and everyday. I can't wait to be with the baby all day. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
oh, this is a wonderful picture of you and Ted. You look so young, Susie. :~)ReplyDelete
Thank you , you are too kind. I just hope I can stay young enough to enjoy this baby. Our youngest grandchild is Emma and she's going to be eleven next month. I think that is why Liz is major crazy about her granddaughter Layla. I wish I could show the photo of Emma holding her new niece.:) Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
congratulations! How beautiful! nice pics. I cant even imagine a great grand baby! but at one time I couldnt imagine even one grand baby.. and now theres 5 of them! lol!ReplyDelete
LOL, Viv, I had to laugh...it just goes that quickly , doesn't it? We needed a new baby to hold and love, to watch grow. My youngest grandkid is Emma and she is eleven...Layla is her niece. :):) Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh, Susie, you lucky lady. To have a little one in the family again, and a great-grandaughter to boot. My grandson is only 21 but if a baby did appear, they sure would get all my help too. How could you do any different..Glad you are feeling better..Happy Spring Day.JudyReplyDelete
Judy, We have to love the babies, don't we? There's a big difference in being loved to pieces and spoiled rotten. LOL. I just want some time with Layla , you know before she graduates. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie'Delete
p.s. the grandson that is the father is not my oldest either...he's 19
Congratulations Susie, a beautiful great-granddaughter and she is indeed precious !ReplyDelete
I keep hoping my granddaughter will soon announce she is pregnant, I'm afraid by the time a 'great grandchild' appears, I'll be too old and broke down to enjoy him/her.
Happy first day of Spring sweet lady.
Oh dear Jo, I know what you mean. I am hoping I at least get to see this baby girl often. I don't know about playing running games or jumping rope. .Maybe sit on the floor with dolls, God willing. We have not had any new babies in our family for a year.. My niece's baby is a year old already....but I have only been around him three times. So we needed this baby to love on. :) Blessings for a great weekend. xoxo,SusieReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, congratulations! She's as pretty as her name! Love your photo with this sweet little baby girl! I'm like you, it seemed we didn't take our babies out that young either, but it's a changing world. So..so glad you're feeling better and were able to get out and enjoy this wonderful day!ReplyDelete
Gert, Isn't this the best thing to do, hold a new baby. I loved it. Gert, I can tell you , I am relieved to feel good again. I get scared when I get sick...I like to be in control of my health.But somethings you just can do nothing about. Hope you and Tom have a great weekend. xoxo,SusieDelete
What a sweetheart. Seeing a new baby takes precedence over anything else. So glad you got to spend time with family.ReplyDelete
You are so right Carol...new babies first. LOL. I love being with my children any chance I can get. I love my friends and blog family too. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
So beautiful! And I know I told you before, but I love her name, LAYLA ROSE!!ReplyDelete
She is just a gorgeous baby. So happy you shared this time together. Such a blessing.ReplyDelete
