...it is very rare indeed when I get to use the name of a song (Modern Love) and my g-baby's name (Maude) in the title of a post! Thanks to my son for thinking of it!
Well we are completely smitten over her by this enchanting little girl. She has been the easiest baby so far for her mom and dad but this week when all the "grandma's and grandpa's" go back to work I think this may change.
You probably have a picture of me, in your mind, camping out at their house, ready to jump into grandma mode at any moment but, truth be told I have only been to see her twice in the last eight days. And, since hubby returns to work tomorrow, it may be awhile before I see her again...(he's my chauffeur). The little dumpling lives about 1 1/2 hours uptown(?) downtown(?) from us and if you've ever been on the freeway in Seattle then you know why I won't drive it alone!
We went for a little visit today and the changes she has made in the last few days are quite striking. No more newborn puffiness/redness, or curly hair. It has taken on a reddish tone and her eyes seem to be bright blue although I know this often changes. She sleeps well, eats like a little monster and constantly has her right hand up over her mouth/eye/face. Even when swaddled she MUST have that hand out!
A few pics from today:
be back soon with an update on my search for Spring...
