2 weeks old!

My sweet little granddaughter is 2 weeks old today. We are really enjoying being grand parents and find it's hard to stay away from her. :)
Here's a few pictures of Alaina from last week.


Here she is sleeping in the cradle that Bob made for our kids. It's nice to see it being used again.

I took some newborn pictures of her. We found it was really hard to get her positioned, but we did get a few good shots!










Alaina's doing well, and so are Laura and Aaron.
She's a blessing!

Oh my! Those are beautiful. Especially enjoyed the one where she's all snuggled up in white! Amazing how slooowwww it was the 2 weeks before she arrived compared to these past 2 weeks right?

re: your comment on IHATH: girl surely you know I wasn't dissing either you or your pin!! I was just poking fun at the "need" to know about marshmallow-toothpick structures. I was trying to be funny. In fact I like the idea of building a molecule with marshmallows and toothpicks and I may try it with Allissa and Melanie. We have been known to have a good time with a bag of mini-marshmallows! Just last week we made the red-apple-slice (lips) peanut-butter (adhesive, but we had to use caramel frosting because Melanie's allergic to nuts) and mini-marshmallow (teeth) "grins" ... found on Pinterest!

Sadie said...

Oh my, she is beyond precious!!! I just want to nuggle with her!!!

The beauty in this is I have the joy of seeing her grow up through your beautiful pictures. She is beautiful. The crib is gorgeous. Bob never ceases to amaze me with his woodworking. Awesome treasure to pass to your daughter and family.
