My photo

I've promised some photos of my new grandson James but I'm having some difficulty uploading some pictures on. my blog. I've managed to upload quite a few but each time they go into another draft and not on the same draft causing me to pull the little bit of hair I have left.  Here is a picture of me meeting my grandson for the first time as soon as I got to Ottawa I went directly to the hospital and stayed the whole day.
Can you tell that grandma is happy.
Even my computer savy son in law had a difficult time getting  some pictures to upload on my blog for some reason and

the computer is slow which doesn't help.  I'll try to post a few more photos later . Sorry for being so computer illiterate especially with this little notepad. I loose a lot of my typing  so you can see why I've haven't posted much.

 I can't believe that I got my 50th follower last evening and I'm so greatful to be able to mark the arrival of my grandson with this milestone. I'm looking forward to blog more seriousely when I get home. Right now  my daughter still needs me  so I'm happy to be able to be a bit useful.  Hugs to all.  JB

It goes so up those precious memories!!! We'll be here when you get home and are bored...ha!

  11. Tammy, his hair are very light at the moment but it looks a little darker in the back at the base of his neck. We are thinking that his hair will turn a bit darker later on. JB

  12. Julia,

    What a wonderful picture of you holding that baby! I love that you're calling him a little prince! He will surely feel the love from his grandma even at this young age! Aren't grandchildren wonderful! Take your time and enjoy him! I'm sure you're enjoying spending some time with your daughter and son-in-law as well! Talk to you when you get back home!

  13. Now, that's what 'happy' looks like!! So sweet ~ have fun!!
