MEET THE NEWEST MEMBER OF THE FAMILY

I was in the barn caring for my calves when I got the call early this morning that Willow had arrived... Here is my little great granddaughter Willow. Everything went well and fast. She is always hungry and is nursing well from the get go and dad had the honour of changing her first dirty diaper.  And not long after she was sucking her thumb and wanted to nurse again.

After nursing again, Willow wanted a nap. 



Cypress is having a little cuddle with mom while little sister is sleeping in the basinet.

Thanks for stopping by for a little visit. It always make me happy to know that you cared enough to leave a comment. Have a great weekend.

  20. Congratulations Julia! Your great grand baby was born on my middle son's birthday. Seeing Cypress having a mommy cuddle reminded me of him, he was only 21 months when he got his baby brother! That mom is going to have her hands full with a lot of love & laughter. Wishing you & yours the very best, on such a wonderful event. Precious, is the word that best describes babies. They're God sent,
    enjoy & savour that time.
    Hugs,
    Cynthia
