Unexpected windfalls

I have a new great-granddaughter. I know the customary thing to do is to announce it as soon as you know there's a pregnancy.

But these days, things aren't always preplanned. Sometimes there are no wedding bells preceding the birth announcement. You wait around, scared to commit, because you aren't sure you'll ever have any access to the baby.

Well, I met my great-granddaughter yesterday, and she's lovely. So far, so good. I hear she'll be visiting tomorrow. We'll see if we can't get a four-generations picture, just because that's what my mom's family always did. I have to keep those old family traditions going.

That's Kami with my son-in-law, taken last night.

Isn't she beautiful?

she is beautiful. I must say I am glad I have girls and not sons. I think that means I will always have access to my grandchildren. My girls are married to wonderful men but who knows what could happen.

She's very beautiful and so alert. How old is she? Now I miss when my boys were babies (well...a little, lol). I'm so glad you will be able to see her.
