Hi, I realize it's been a while since I posted.
Lots of things have happened!

Mainly, I've been working on a piece of art for my first granddaughter's room.
It's going over her crib and I was supposed to get it done before she was born.

Which leads me to my next thing -


Sawyer Elizabeth Scott arrived on December 9 at 10:04am,
weighing in at 7lbs. and 8 oz. and 21 inches long.

She will stay in the hospital in the neo natal unit for about a week.
She has a cleft palette and will need surgery at 5 months to repair it.
She has lots of hair and blue eyes that will probably turn a beautiful brown.

She is doing really good.
The main concern is her being able to eat, because she is not equipped 
with the normal sucking motions babies usually have. So far, she is doing pretty well.

Plus mom and baby both have some infection from the water breaking early.

I will post pics as soon as I can.

Also, I just got a new computer and haven't had time to even look at it.
And a new camera for my birthday and I haven't uploaded the cd yet that allows me to
import images off of my camera to the computer.
Oh, technology, you do frustrate me at times.

Anyway, I will update as soon as I can.
I will have a couple of new Christmas paintings and some ornaments to post too.

See you soon!

Oh, and today is my 59th birthday!
I am truly blessed.

Wow, things are happening at your house. Happy Birthday. I am sure I was once 59, but I don't remember it anymore.

Your little grand daughter is going to be just fine! Hug both mom and babe for me.

PS: Your tree is beautiful.

After reading your post I sat and gave thanks for a safe birth and that the beautiful new baby will handle the extra attention she will have to receive. They have come along way understanding the cleft palette so you all can relax knowing she is in good hands. Hope you daughter recovers quickly from the infection.
Happy Birthday dear friend and I send much love.
