Baby Luv

I got to hold this beautiful baby today. She is the first grandchild of one of my girlfriends from high school. There are four of us from the class of '77 that have made a really good effort to stay in touch. We don't get together often and sometimes too much time passes but we almost always have a summer "meeting" at the beach and we've been going out for our Christmas dinner and gift exchange for almost 30 years.
I don't have children so I get to be "Auntie" to all of their kids and today the first grandchild was cuddled and fussed over, it was so much fun. Time passes too quickly among dear friends and before I knew it two hours had gone by.

It was so much fun to shop for a gift for this little one, I fell in love with this embroidered sweater and pantsuit...it was hard to choose something...there is so much cute stuff. I bought her a "church dolly" too, this one reminded me of a little Dutch girl...and since the baby has a bit of Dutch blood (as do I) it was the one for me. I was so happy to hear that this was her first dolly! Auntie Shelly bought her first dolly....awwwww.

Hi Shelly! The baby is adorable. It is fun to go shopping for baby clothes isn't it. I don't know about you, but I am oohing and ahhing over some of the clothes.
The doll is cute too. Have a good one. Lisa

That was so much fun. Next time I get to hold her the most, I feel a bit cheated. Lisa is a good Mommy :)

the baby and that outfit are just too cute. i miss having little ones around.

it's funny because i had assumed you didn't want to give out too much personal info on your blog, or your kids must have gotten in trouble... why did i assume you had kids at all??? that'll teach me.
