Smiling at 4 AM.....

What could possibly make me LOVE the alarm going off at 4AM???? Well, it means we are off and running to visit our sweet bitty girl, and that makes the early morning rising not a problem at all.


Time spent with this little one is pure joy....and those cheeks need weekly kisses from Oma and Gramps.

The day goes very quickly....there are nap times,


...and bottles with Gramps. She and Gramps like to watch TV too.


Gramps thinks it is cute to try to help Clare walk....Oma is not so sure that is a good idea.


But Oma does like to make sure Clare is cozy and content in her stroller and then....



....we all take a nice long walk together.


We go to Trader Joes and pick out fresh flowers for Mommy and a sweet treat for dinner.


Sometimes we come home VERY tired and then Oma cuddles Clare and just smiles and smiles!!!

But this the part of the day that Clare loves the most.....when Mommy and Daddy are both home and can welcome their sweet baby with LOTS of kisses.

And then next week we do it all again. I am LOVING this part of my life!!!

We have learned that being grandparents is truly one of God's greatest blessings to us! She is adorable!

She is getting so big. You won't be able to call her bitty for much longer. She is so precious and it is so sweet how much her Oma and Gramps love her. If that is a hint of red hair I see, I am so jealous.

Oh, she's so sweet. My mom watches my girls when I'm working and it just makes me feel so blessed that they get to be close to their Grammy. I think it's just wonderful that you and Gramps get to spend a day every week with your little Clare.

Thank you so much for the link to the snaps help. I will definitely give that a study when I try again. THANK YOU. I would love to see what you made for Clare!
