Baby G....Home!

Our precious grandbaby...aka Baby G came home today. Both baby and mother are doing fine. I think our daughter J is glad to be out of the hospital as she is not fond of them.

Watching the birth of my first grandchild was an amazing experience! I never thought I could love another person as much as I love my daughter but I have quickly figured out that I love our precious grand-daughter just as much!

I recommend that if you are grandma and if your child allows you to be in the delivery room during birth that you do it! You will not regret it.

I just love sitting and holding baby G and I think she enjoys all the attention she is getting!

Baby G Has Arrived!

My beautiful grandbaby arrived at 7:58pm EST and weighed 7 1/2 lbs! wootwoot!

This pic is of my mom, myself (I am holding baby G) and my daughter J.

I am tired after having only 3 hours of sleep so I will blog about this wonderful experience of being a first time grandma and seeing my first grandbaby being born!

I hope everyone had a fabulous 3-day holiday weekend. I hope you all got to remember our service men and women.

We had a fabulous weekend. We attended a few picnics and bbq's, some swimming, nature walks, shopping and just spending time with family and friends.

This picture is of me with our grandpuppy Nellari. She loves to give kisses!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

3 Baby House Finch Birdies!

Update: The third egg finally hatched! We now have 3 gorgeous little finch babies! The oldest one now has his/her eyes open and cries a lot for momma finch. They are making a mess of the nest and it smells like bird poo! Momma finch was out finding food while daddy finch watched over the nest, so he wasn't too pleased with me disturbing it. Momma finch is fine with me as she has learnt that I won't hurt her or the babies.

Each of the 3 babies hatched on different days which coincides with how she laid them. She laid 1 egg every day for 6 days. Over the past 4 days, the remaining 3 eggs hatched one at a time each on different days.

I will update the blog again in 2 days with new pics!

We have hatchlings!!!

Last week I posted a photo of momma finch's nest that she made in my hanging flower basket that had 5 eggs. She eventually had 6 eggs. We now have 2 hatchlings (baby birds) and 1 egg left.

Last night a nasty squirrel got into the nest and carried off 3 eggs! I was so dang angry! blah!

So far, the 2 babies seem to be doing well. When momma leaves the nest to get food, daddy finch comes and stays with them.

I will post another picture in a few days.

Baby Is Due Any Day!

As my friends know (those who read my personal blog here), our daughter is expecting our first grandbaby any day. (she is a tad over due now).

We are trying to be patient but we are all ready to love our new precious of joy when she arrives! C'mon baby G!!! DD is on bedrest until further notice. Please keep them in your prayers for a safe and healthy delivery.

New Bird Family!!!

Last year I blogged about a mommy house finch who made a beautiful nest in my hanging flower basket last May. She laid 5 eggs, had 4 hatchings and it was a wonderful experience for us. (see my Bird Watching Label here for all the pics!).

I am happy to report, she is back! She made a new nest in my hanging basket that my daughter purchased for me for Easter. (see photo above)

What a beautiful nest! We noticed on Sunday that she laid a tiny little egg. Every day since Sunday, she has laid another egg. As of today (Thursday) there are 5 tiny little eggs. They are the size of a malted mill ball egg (candy egg). Right now, she is being pretty protective of her nest so after I saw her 'jet' out to get herself a meal, I took the basket down and got a picture :)

As time goes on, I hope to blog this experience too! I hope you will follow along!

The Baby's Nursery, too cute!!!

Everyone has been asking me about the grandbaby's nursery. Here is a picture of the nursery at my daughter's house.

The nursery is obviously pink with white accents and it's done in a Care Bears theme.

I will get some more pictures after baby Giannna arrives!
