Singing "Happy Birthday"

Well, from singing the blues, to singing Happy Birthday. Sam celebrated his first
birthday with grandparents, aunts and great aunts and uncles and second cousins.
But I think the person most excited about the birthday, was Grace. She was excited
that her cousin Jocelyn was coming over, and that we were going to eat cake. We
had a nice dinner of Lasagna rolls, salad and garlic bread, followed by two cakes.
Courtney and Colton celebrated Delilah's first birthday a few days early.
To our sweet little Sam, Happy First Birthday!

Singing the "Blues"

Well, I'm back home from South Carolina, wishing I'd stayed another half a week. It
was very hard leaving Melissa and family behind. I have discovered that it's much
harder leaving small grandkids, because I wonder if they understand that you are
leaving when you tell them you are, and that you will be back in "two weeks". Do
they get confused or wonder "Where did Grandma go"? Plus, it is exciting times
when there are new Grandchildren born. And the love you feel for them is more
than I thought possible. And Stella was so good for me when Melissa was in the
hospital. It kind of surprised me that she wasn't freaked out because her Mommy
and Daddy weren't at home in the morning when she woke up. It was just such a
sweet time for me to be able to take care of her, and have that special time with her.
And to have that time with our new little grandchild Sterling..... Priceless.
Another fun part of the trip was staying with Karen Rozmus. She always makes me
feel so welcome, and it was just another thing to look forward to at the end of each
I just wanted to post a few more pictures that I had taken. Love those babies!
It makes me so happy that I have Tyler's family so close. Woo Hoo!

More Pictures

Yes, she really is that beautiful
Andy shaved today after not shaving while in the hospital, and he
thought it would be fun to do something different. His Clint Eastwood look)

Well, I figured while I was here with Stella and Sterling and family, that I should take
plenty of pictures. So, I took some more tonight while Sterling had his eyes open. Then
Silly Stella being a little mischievous. She has just been cracking me up.
Tonight I watched Sterling while Melissa, Andy and Stella went to the store. He was
good the whole time. (45 min.) = )
Tonight is my last night in the King bed at the Rozmus household. But, it will be fun
to see Chadd before I go home. O.K. my thoughts are a little rambled, so I'll stop now.
Enjoy the pics.

No more hospital

So, the new baby has had his first car ride home. Stella was so happy that her parents
came home with her tonight. She has been so good, and a joy to take care of.
When they were getting Sterling ready to go, he cried a bit, and Stella was so concerned.
I think (hope) she will get used to his crying soon, cuz it's kind of sad to see her so
concerned and sad herself. Anyway, I caught a few pictures as he was on his way
out the door. The cute hat was crocheted by his aunt Anna. It's just too cute.
So, I'm off Stella duty tonight. = ( At least I have a few more days to enjoy the company
of my daughter and family.

Well, here are the first pictures that I could get of Sterling and the family. He is a great
nurser already. It's so exciting to me. He seems very calm. Hopefully he will remain that
way. His hands are large. Taking after his Daddy. Stella has been a doll for me. She seems
to be taking to her brother o.k. So far, so good. Sweetest thing, when the nurse came
to get him she was sad to let him go out the door. Anyway, enjoy the pictures. Look
at Melissa's blog later today, cuz she's hoping to post some of their "good" pictures. Wow,
it sure is fun being a grandma!

Baby Boy Smith

He's HERE !!!!! Baby boy Smith weighed in at 8 lbs. 7 ozs. and arrived at 3:04 am
Feb. 5. Melissa called me around 11:23 pm Feb. 4 and told me her water had just
broke, and so come on over to be with Stella. I can't believe that she delivered the
baby so quickly. Makes me happy. Everyone is doing fine, and Andy and Melissa
said that he reminds them of Stella. Watch out girls, that means he's a cutie pie.
Pictures to be posted later today, after i take some. Now.......I'll go catch a few zzzzzz's
