A New Grand-Daughter!
I have not written in several weeks because I have been with my new granddaughter, Cara Isabella, and her parents, my daughter Maria and her husband John in Brooklyn, NY. Born February 14th and weighing almost nine pounds, she is a little bundle of joy., I should I say a big bundle of joy! She is my first grandchild and now I know why these little creatures are called grandchildren. They are indeed grand!
Fair skin and blue eyes of her Irish father and dark brown hair and large wide eyes of her Spanish mother.
She kept her parents and me (three adults) under her command, not being able to speak a single word. But she sure could cry! We could not bear even a whimper so of course she learned fast that being in our arms was better than in the crib.
I took the 3 a.m. shift of feeding her allowing her mother and dad to get some rest. But during the day I was unable to sleep, guess it was the excitement of it all.
She recently had her one month birthday party….three new pink outfits size three months, yes three months…she is going to be a tall girl–her Dad is six feet and she has his long slim body with long feet, toes, and fingers.
When Cara learns to walk I would like to take her to a beautiful Costa Rica beach and let her play in the blue waters of the Pacific and walk barefoot in the soft sand.
