I BEG YOUR INDULGENCE~

Marmee...I am a Marmee, I'm still walking on air since the birth of my first grandbaby...I beg your indulgence, I can't seem to help myself...on a warm sunny Sunday afternoon...the new family arrived home...
both parents looking a bit fatigued...

however, no complaints were uttered...just adoring gazes..



Travis Lloyd Neily is home...resting in the arms of his great grandmother...my mom...just two days old...

as his proud great grandfather Lloyd...my dad...

looks on...the world seems to be a better place all because of Travis...I am a Marmee!

Oh yes, I believe that the world is a better place for every child born into love - we will all benefit. Welcome to wee Travis and congratulations to his entire extended family from out here in British Columbia.

You are one lucky Marmee! "It is no small thing, when those who are so fresh from God, love us."...wonderful words from Dickens.
Congrats and enjoy...he's adorable,

Congratulations, it only gets better from here. You'll have plenty of time to spoil your little grandson.
He's beautiful even when asleep. It's quite a miracle isn't it. ENJOY this precious gift.

I've never known a "marmee" . . . except in "Gone With the Wind." Is there a story?

Congratulations Julie! I can only imagine how ecstatic you must be! I remember how fulfilling and special it was for my mom to watch her mother holding the male twin for the first time. Special memories indeed for you and your parents. : )
