Let the Stella layouts begin!

I can't believe Stella is a month old already.  wow!!  I am happy to say that I have been down there already a number of times. It makes me so sad that she is almost 2 hours away.  It is certainly do-able but I have to plan it.  Thank goodness I have chunks of time off so that I can get down to see her.  For today I have to make do with pictures of her

Amazingly wonderful news

Since I last posted (which feels like forever now) we have had the most wonderful thing happen in our world.  Stella Violet (our first grandchild) was born.   I was able to be there for my daughter and coach her through the last few hours of her labour and birth.  I have been a labour and delivery nurse for 25 years and no birth that I have been apart of was as special as that ......except maybe my own 2 births :). I am so thankful to have been able to share in that experience with Jessica and Paul.  Stella weighed 8lb 13oz. (just 1 oz less than her mom weighed)


and in honour of Stella's arrival, I made my February Tim Holtz tag for her

Excuse me while I go and get ready, I have a date today with my most favourite little girl.
