I am so happy.
Tomorrow is the start of 
my 3rd month of blogging.
I cannot believe how fast
these last 2 months have flown.
For being so hesitant to start
I cannot believe
how natural it feels.
I feel like I have to get 
my thoughts out or I will go crazy.
You readers say some the nicest things.
 You have no idea how much it means.
My heart flutters every time 
my phone dings after a post.
It is always a sweet message
and I am reassured once again,
that you "get" me.
I promise I won't celebrate
each month.
Pinky swear.
But honestly, I had to tell  you
just how great you have been.
Your support and comments
absolutely make my day.
I love my day jobs
wife, and mom, and grandma.
 Now I love this one too.
So thank you all
for making my blathering
so ever-loving fun!
Now for a few pictures
of sweet baby Ollie.
She is growing like a weed
and flourishing.
We are so blessed by her daily.
She goes to St. Louis
next Tuesday
for her consultations
with many doctors.
A cardiologist, DS doctor,
and more.
Keep praying!
God is so faithful.
She is in his hands
there is no better place than that!
My dad and Ollie, he is almost 92.
Don't you love the hat!
Mom and Dad, 
(she made him remove his hat-
They have been married
almost 70 years.
He listens to her!)
My brother-in-law David.
He loves babies!
He has twin grandsons 
and he is hands-on!
She is hard not to kiss!

Don't you love that hair!

 Oh, and when I got home 
from babysitting Caroline today
I found a surprise on the table 
from my friend Wendy.
I mentioned on yesterday's post
that pink tulips make me smile.
Cool, huh? 
Now I am off to dinner with my main squeeze.
I am telling you folks,
my cup runneth over!!

    Your father's hat reminds me alot of the one my dad always would wear during the wintertime... Kinda neat! That is such a wonderful picture of your Mom and Dad and Ollie.. Have you taken a 4 family generation picture yet that has your parents, you, Annie and baby Ollie in it? That would also be so neat for one to have and see!
