Yes, I do realize it's been almost a week since I posted. No, nothing is wrong, it's just been a perfect storm of camping trip, recovering from camping trip, visiting with Cecil and Sue and a teething Emmy. She's not been terribly sick or fussy but she's running a low grade fever off and on and she's been a bit more demanding than usual the last several days.
I have so many things I want to post that I'm going to have to break it into several smaller posts rather than 1 megapost. I'm going to save the camping trip pictures and post about it in a day or two.
I've got some pics of Emmy to share (of course!) and two of my blogging buds have sent Emmy and me some great things that I want to share with you.
I made them smaller than usual.
Click on any of them to enlarge them.***
There are two outfits and a picture frame that sweet Connie sent, plus a pretty notepad that I somehow managed to leave out of the picture.
The floral onesy and capri set is still a little too big for her, but the bloomer set fits well, as you can see from the next picture.
Jessica hadn't seen either of these outfits so I put the bloomer set on Emmy for these pics and sent some of the pics to Jessica at work on instant messenger.
Jessica's reaction? "Where did that adorable outfit come from?!" I told her that it was sent by my dear blogging friend CONNIE and Jessica told me to be sure to pass on her thanks and to tell her how much she likes the outfits for Emmy.
So Connie, THANK YOU from Jessica, Jason, me and especially Emmy. It's official: everybody who's seen Emmy in this outfit thinks it's about the cutest thing they've seen lately, including me. And YES, I am biased. Grandmas are supposed to be biased toward their grandkids, it's in the bylaws.Another dear blogging friend sent a package that arrived on Monday and I want to share what my friend JENNY @ PRAIRIE FARMERESS was gracious enough to send me. Jenny is a lover of all things old and handmade, and is an accomplished artist and crafter in her own right.
Jen sent me several old crocheted and tatted doilies and some wonderful pieces of fabric for sewing and crafts.
She also sent a snowsuit for Emmy, but she's going to have to grow some before she can wear it. But it's almost 100*F here so I'm thinking she's got plenty of time to grow into that snowsuit before it actually gets cold enough to snow around here.
My favorite thing that Jen sent is a handmade and crafted brag book that Jen made for me. It opens accordion style and Jen decorated it with stamps and stickers. It's personalized for me and Emmy and I absolutely adore it, Jen. Jessica loved it too but I fought her off it. ;-)
Thank you so much for everything, Jen! I love it all, but I'll treasure the brag book most of all.The next several pics of me and Emmy were taken by my sister Cecil on Tuesday when she and my sister Sue were here visiting.
As you can see Miss Emmy is growing like a weed. She's already outgrown most of her newborn-3 month size clothes and is now wearing mostly 3-6 month size. She probably weighs around 13 pounds, give or take a few ounces.
I'm just going to post several pics then do my goodbyes at the end of the pictures.I've entitled that last picture, "My, Granny, what big eyes you have!" ;-)I think that's quite enough for one post. I'll try to get my post on our camping trip done on Thursday, but please, nobody hold your breath. I don't want to be responsible for anybody's asphyxiation if I don't manage to get it done on Thursday.
I still have to bathe Emmy, take a shower myself and find something for my dinner/supper.
Y'all have a great Wednesday.
