About Me

My photo
I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of one. I have many hobbies and interests but gardening and rug hooking are my main interest at the moment. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and have been married for 51years.

I can't believe that James is growing so fast. It seems like yesterday when he was born. He has become a little bundle of joy and major blessings for his loving parents. He has mastered the art of rolling over and back again.  Now he  has discovered his shadow. It's just too cute.

Here are a few photos  of his trip to Lake Placid with his mom and dad. He loves his stroller ride.

Especially when Mama is pushing on those bumpy brick roads.

Same color eyes and big teethes too,

Look at those nice pudgy legs.

Oops, I guess it's easier to hold the baby like this.  The picture came out sideway but I still wanted to include it here.  Baby sleeping on daddy. All tuckered out from the trip.

Still sleeping while radiant mama is all smiles, just enjoying her little tiger.

He looks so comfy sleeping on mama.

James loves water. He's a happy little tiger swimming with daddy.

Just settling in bed ready to watch TV with his handsome Daddy.

Look how intently he watches what's going on on TV.

I hope that you have enjoyed a quick visit with my grandson and his loving parents. I'm looking forward to read your comments.   Thanks for dropping by.  JB 



  1. What a darling that little James is! I LOVE those chubby legs! Mom and Dad look so happy! Love the little gray streak in your daughters hair! That's how mine started when I was 16...... tell her not to dye it as it is very sophisticated looking!
    Wonderful photos Julia!

  10. Thanks for your comments everyone. I must have been dead tired yesterday, in fact I know that I was dead tired and I couldn't see the difference in the color of James and his mom's eyes but they are different. I can see that clearly now.

    I can't wait for their visit in early August. Happy 4th of July to my American friends. JB
