Counting Anna Blessings

I am still missing Anna. I am missing Peter, Ginny and Sean too, but there is something so special about having a baby in the house!
-I miss her sweet babbling that was the "music" we listened to for a whole week, and now it is silent.
- I miss her sweet smile that greeted us everytime we picked her up from sleeping.
- I miss her little gasp - like she had just discovered a fun surprise when we walked into the room.
- I miss her joy and laughter that was overflowing when we played with her or when she held her baby doll.
- I miss her kisses and hugs that were sweet and tender, if only for a fleeting moment.
- I miss all of her many facial expressions that kept us smiling and laughing.
Last night I decided to do a layout about Anna blessings - there is something therapeutic about this scrapbooking thing! The template was a freebie for a challenge at Hodge Podge Art.View on Smug Mug

What a beautiful LO!! Aren't grandchildren fun?? We have two and one is on the way. Although, we don't get to see the two very often and they are past the baby stage. I had a blast last Thanksgiving scrapping with my grand daughter who was 7 at the time.

It won't be long and you'll get to see her again.
