New Starts

This is my great nephew, Elliott. He is the first "Grandbaby" for my little sister, Sally.
Since my kids aren't in any hurry to have kids, my sister has graciously shared Elliott with me.
Don't you just love the smell of new babies? They are so soft and precious.
This little guy is obviously a happy camper. Playing peek-a-boo in the clean clothes.
No shortage of love around here for this little guy.
The refrain at Christmas in our house was "don't bogart the baby". For those of you too young to remember the word "bogart", the phrase basically means "don't hog the baby, you have to share him". It was so fun to have a little one around for Christmas.
Hopefully next year one of my kids will be starting a family. Can't wait for my own little "Elliott".

  1. Patty: Thanks for stopping by. I have a feeling we live close to each other. I live in Escalon, and from one of your earlier posts, I think you live down the road. I saw the pictures of your stash and quilting machine and am still drooling! We'll have to meet one day. That would be great!

    By the way, Elliott is DARLING!
