    here's my distraction, my grandson Greyson. He was born May 22 and I haven't been able to get a thing done in my sewing room. The problem is, he has a cousin, Samuel, who was born on May 17 but lives in VA. I am excited to say we will be going down there in July to finally meet him and see his big brother but I have to finish his quilt before we go. I just can't refuse going over to see Greyson at every chance I get.

    Congrats to you, Grandma! What a fine, handsome boy. He looks pretty fascinated by you also.

    I sympathise with your problem. Only solution, recruit him as helper. :lol: You can never start too early :lol:

    He is adorable. I'd let the sewing and the dust bunnies collect with him nearby! Congrats and enjoy!

    Wow, he is very alert, isn't he and cute as can be. Congratulations! I would have trouble focusing on something else too.

    Congratulations on the new one, he's sure a cutie. And they grow up so fast...

    Don't forget to take Samuel's brother something, big brothers and sisters seem to get the short shaft when presents are concerned.

    He's a cutie and sure needs gramma kisses and snuggles. You've definitely got your priorities right; sewing can wait :D

    So many kissable parts. I fully understand your dilema. I don't get to so much anymore due to my sweet Lily, born October 1st. I watch her three days a week and I do mean WATCH her. She is just amazing. She smiles and giggles all the time... Such a happy little girl. Being a grandparent is the BEST.

    He is absolutely the handsomest little person I have ever seen. His little face would be chapped by too many kisses if he were mine. :thumbup:

    what a cutie, love those fat chubby cheeks. I call my youngest grandson who is 4, Mr. Fat Cheeks, he still has that baby fat. But then he calls me girl grandpa or just grandpa.

    Samuel's big brother, Seth, won't be left out. As a matter of fact, I am going to take my embroidery machine with me so he can see how I am going to make his "I'm the big brother" shirt. I try to think of something we can do together each day I am there.
