Saturday Stitching Moved to Monday!

Well Nana had to move Saturday Stitching to Monday as I have to brag on my new grand boy.

Joshua Clifford Grimm born on May 15th weighing 8 pounds and 12 oz...21 inches long.

I have to say he is a beautiful boy. And I was so happy that Charles and Nancy chose Clifford for his middle name. Joshua is the 4th generation to bear that name in our family. My granddaddy was Henry Clifford but went by Cliff ( Baylor has his first name as he is Henry Baylor Grimm) my daddy was Ray Clifford Grimm, son Charles is Charles Clifford Grimm.  So I have two grandsons named for my granddaddy who I just loved to pieces. He was such a kind and wonderful person. I hope that Joshua will continue the godly heritage set for him by all these men.

Of course I was a baby hog....Nana grabbed that baby before Grandpa knew what was happening.

Grandpa was pretty smitten as well.

We were not there when Audrey arrived the next day to see her BRUDDER.

And get ready for this preciousness

She is so sweet and loving with Joshua.

Charles said she was a bit put out when she realized she was going home with Nancy's mom and Mommy, Daddy and Joshua were staying at the hospital.

If all continues to go well, the family should be reunited at home today. I am so thankful that Audrey's other nana was able to come and keep the ship running at home.   I cannot think of the word for Grandmother in Korean. The mom's parents have a certain name and the dad's parents have a certain name in Korean culture. In other words you do not get to pick your name for the grands to call you.  So glad that we get to be Nana and Grandpa to these two precious ones.

Hope to have some stitching to share on Monday. Thanks for all the good wishes for my birthday. I heard from many of you on Facebook, Instagram, Email and Snail mail. I am surely blessed as I celebrate another journey around the sun.

Oh, Arlene, he is just precious and the one of Audrey cradling his little face in her hand is so beautiful.

Far more important and precious than Saturday Stitching. Much as I enjoy your stitching, I can wait until Monday to see it!
