A Dear Little Fellow

We visited our daughters last Wednesday.  One is married and is mom to our little 8-month-old grandson.  We (or they) make the 3-hour trip only every month or two so I was more than pleased that he didn't reject me when I greeted him and picked him up.  You know how babies get to the age when they refuse to be picked up by strangers.  Either he's not to that stage or I'm not a stranger.  I hope it's the latter. 

He wasn't feeling very well--had a stuffy, runny nose and a cough.  He was just uncomfortable, but he didn't cry much.  He went to the doctor a day or two after our visit.  It was discovered that he had an ear infection.

On the way there I stitched the binding on the String-X quilt (but couldn't stitch on the way back because it was dark).  I'll photograph and post about it soon.  It's been too cloudy to get a good photo.

I hope you're healthy!


  1. hi nancy! i'm nancyb and was excited to see your blog. i have a grandson and a granddaughter (12 & 14) and they are soooo wonderful. your grandson is absolutely adorable. good luck with your blog. i am coming up to my 1 year anniversary on mine and its gotten easier as i've hobbled along. my blog is if you want to check out the quilts i've been making.i haven't tried a string quilt yet but like the way yours looks! maybe next one! nancyb

  2. Your grandson is a sweetie! Perhaps 2014 will be my year to have a little one in the family (Time is just about up to anticipate a 2013 birth). I'm hoping for a granddaughter since I've lived my life in the company of males, but I'd be happy for either gender. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. What a beautiful boy - I'm hoping he's back on the mend. Ear infections are no fun, but I'm glad you were able to spend some snuggle time with him and visit with your girls.

  4. What an adorable little grandbaby you've got!!


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
