We've had a houseful of family coming and going and oohing and aahing in celebration of our newest sweet granddaughter Eliää Rose, who arrived herself on Thursday and came home on Saturday. Noticing all the visitors most is our puppy Bogie, who apparently thinks everyone is here primarily to provide laps for him. But when the California relatives flew home on Sunday, diminishing the crowd a little after a week's well-timed visit, Bogie took over on guard duty, barking anytime little Eliää cries to make sure someone rushes to her rescue. Thank heavens our 12-year-old grandson is also here and happy to keep Bogie busy while his lawyer mother tries a month-long case in Germany. Next to arrive will be our very-anticipated middle son, finishing his med school first-year exams on St Maarten at 8:30 pm today and flying immediately into the island sunset to be here with his beautiful new daughter.
Wanting to use bright island colors, our daughter-in-law chose some of my recent doodles to make Eliää's birth announcement. If there's any time to post at all, I'm afraid this blog may become something of a baby photo gallery for the next month, until Eliää returns with her parents to St Maarten, for we are indeed all tickled pink.
Things she thinks...
