I am staying with my daughter, helping her take care of our new grandchild. Ryan Sabrina came into our life on May 2, 2008 at 8 pounds 7 ounces, 21 inches. She is of course a little sweetie, but what grandma wouldn’t say that. It’s been 30 years since I had my last and having a baby to hold and rock to sleep is no less enjoyable. What a little miracle she is and how exciting to think of what she will see in her lifetime. Ryan is a great sleeper and after the first 2 nights home when she wasn’t sleeping at all, that is a wonderful thing. Right now she is on pretty much of a 4 hour eat and sleep schedule, how I wish mine had done that.
I am writing an article for Cloth Paper and Scissors with a deadline of June 1. The article will appear later this year, so I have lots to keep me busy in between caring for baby. At the same time I am reworking the art from Yosemite Falls I took apart.
On the 13th of May I leave for Omaha for my other daughters wedding. I will post pictures of the family and more artwork after that.
