Very Very Young and Very Very Old
that very special, very handsome wee lad who finally made his appearance almost two weeks late.
jorden and becky's new little man - oliver.
he weighed 8 lb 14 oz and he's already growing like a weed!
darin and i were utterly in love:
he is absolutely perfect.
he was so curious and wide-eyed, but quickly those pretty little eyes would narrow and he'd bliss out and fall asleep so cozy. here's his chill look: (and dakota in the background being protective :)
becky's the best mama. a true natural. he is going to be one happy boy.
we left all aglow.
so lucky to know this new spirit and soooo excited to watch him grow!
on the other end of the spectrum,
we celebrated my grandma georgie's birthday.
folks, she is 99 years old!
NINETY NINE YEARS OLD.
born in 1912; she has the cutest stories. she told us that night about ice skating in yosemite when she was 16 years old, and how she somehow knocked the instructor off his feet. "i never saw him again," she says, giggling like a schoolgirl.
we had a big old family photo taken outside of old spaghetti factory (spag fag as addie calls it)
we had closed the place down.
she still lives alone. i want to make a little interview/documentary about her life.
and....just for good measure, here's my outfit that day,
comprised of many gifts from my girls!
i have decided i can't resist anything with rick-rack.
amber gifted me the little pale pink shrug that makes me feel like a ballerina.
of course i am far too clumsy to be a real ballerina, so mine is a raggedy cowgirl version.
i did work really hard on my "ballerina" up-do though...
and used about a thousand bobby pins.
i wish you could see the clasp better: it's a wooden turtle!
do i look ridiculously happy? haha, well i guess that's cause i just AM!
there's a lot to be happy for these days...i'm still walking on a cloud after my exhilerating weekend,
and spending time with new babies and grandmas just kinda makes everything SWEET.
