Could Someone Please Turn Down The Lights?…



Ahnalise Grace…prefers to have the room all dark!

Every time you put a camera or a light of any kind in front of her, the scrowl appears. Of course, who can blame her, right?! A baby girl needs her shut eye.

This has not been a good couple of weeks on the home front for me. We had tickets to fly up and visit Ahana two weeks ago. The day before we were to leave, I woke up with a very sore throat and my right ear totally plugged and had loss of hearing. I was in bed for over a week, and needless to say, we had to cancel our trip….big sigh.

So here are precious girl is already one month old, and Grammie and Papaw still haven’t seen her!

Would you like to guess what kind of mood our household is in?

I am feeling better, but the virus has left me with my ears still plugged and and basically deaf. The reason I STILL can’t get on a plane and fly to see this adorable little girl.

The doctor has prescribed antibiotics for the ears, so we will see if this takes care of the situation.

Her parents told us, that Ahnalise went to her first birthday party for a friend of the family. I am sure she was a big hit at the party, wouldn’t you imagine?

Oh, why can’t they stay like this forever?….

Have a great week!

  1. She’s adorable! I understand how your heart aches as you’re not able (yet) to go see her. I hope that’ll happen soon. And yes, time flies, my little one is already 9 months on Monday.

  2. Well, first congratulations on this precious addition to your family, but dang it, so sorry you got sick and still have been able to see her. I know that feeling, I was sick over Christmas so I did not get to spend any time with my 3 month old great grandbaby. Hope you will rid yourself of those ails and are able to see her soon!!

  3. Oh, Laurie, she is absolutely the most beautiful baby! So perfect! I know you can’t wait to “meet” her. I pray you get well and can get there ASAP. A baby girl needs her Grammie, too!

  4. She is beautiful my friend. I’m so sorry to hear you have not been up to snuff.. I do hope you feel better soon so you can fly to see that precious little one.


  5. You are blessed again!! So, so sweet!! I hope you are feeling much better soon, Laurie, and can make that trip! blessings ~ tanna

  6. I hope that you feel better soon! My husband is getting over the very same thing! Your grand baby is so adorable! Camera shy already! tee hee hugz, Lisa and Bear

  7. She is adorable and looks very much like her big brother. I can relate as when my grandson was born I had a virus and then pneumonia. I couldn’t see him for over six weeks and he was only a 30 minute drive away. It killed me to see photos of him on FB and not be able to have met, kiss or hug him. I feel your pain and hope you can travel soon! I’ll cross my fingers for you!

  8. Congratulations. She’s beautiful. My mom’s name was Annalise (spelled different but probably pronounced the same). Hope you feel better soon so you can hold that little bundle of joy in your arms πŸ™‚

  9. Hope you start to feel better – flying would literally blow out your ears now. Oh wow, talk about adorable and precious – your granddaughter is all that and more. So happy for you and your family, always a joy to welcome a new family member Laurie!
