I am staying with my daughter, helping her take care of our new grandchild. Ryan Sabrina came into our life on May 2, 2008 at 8 pounds 7 ounces, 21 inches. She is of course a little sweetie, but what grandma wouldn’t say that. It’s been 30 years since I had my last and having a baby to hold and rock to sleep is no less enjoyable. What a little miracle she is and how exciting to think of what she will see in her lifetime. Ryan is a great sleeper and after the first 2 nights home when she wasn’t sleeping at all, that is a wonderful thing. Right now she is on pretty much of a 4 hour eat and sleep schedule, how I wish mine had done that.
I am writing an article for Cloth Paper and Scissors with a deadline of June 1. The article will appear later this year, so I have lots to keep me busy in between caring for baby. At the same time I am reworking the art from Yosemite Falls I took apart.
On the 13th of May I leave for Omaha for my other daughters wedding. I will post pictures of the family and more artwork after that.

Kathy, this is the one of the most beautiful babies I’ve seen. I’m sure you will agree. She looks very much like the doll I made in a class years ago. I can almost remember how nice babies smell, well…most of the time.
