Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
My 1st Grandson Arrived

I have been incognito. It seems I have no time to blog or get onto QCA. I planned to do the Mystery Quilt and do not even have my squares cut out. My time has been spent elsewhere.

My first grandson, Rowen, arrived the end of April. That's two grandchildren in less than two months. He is darling, but my daughter and son-in-law are dealing with the anxiety of first time parents. My daughter's delivery resulted in an unexpected C-section, which has prolonged her recovery. I have spent many days and nights helping out by grocery shopping, taking the dog out, cooking dinner, and just being there.

My granddaughter arrived in March and is coming along fairly well. Early on, she developed stomach problems. The doctor wasn't sure if it was colic or an allergy to dairy that comes through Mom's breastmilk. My daughter has had to eliminate all dairy, egg & soy from her diet. After holding my grandson, my 6-week-old granddaughter seemed enormous, and she's only 11 pounds.

Some of you may recall my baby shower blog in February, showing my two pregnant daughters. Well, here are my two daughters, with the babies.


My grandson is adorable.

My granddaughter is a sweetheart and her three-year-old sister is learning about sharing mom & dad.

Now, if I could just find the time to finish the second baby quilt.

Happy Stitching!
