Last week went by in a flash.....
 Lila has become a worker and loves every minute of it.
 Her words: Let me do that Nanny. This is hard work.

She watered every flower (and a few weeds, ha)

When the watering was done we took a break to sit by the pool. Well, I should say, Carrie and I sat but Lila couldn't resist the urge to splash! The water was frigid but it didn't seem to bother her in the least. Splashing and giggling....so cute!

This week is off to a fast start also....You'd think I was the one expecting a baby next week with all the stuff I am trying to get done. Running errands, cooking and freezing casseroles, washing every item that hits the hamper, ironing (why am I ironing) lol...... One more pic of sweetpea then I have to go get the oil changed in the car (gotta be ready to roll)!!

Loves vanilla wafers......

 Have a good week all.

Oh, Nanny! I just about have tears reading this post. The precious time with Lila and Carrie. The anxious days before baby boy's arrival. It hits so close to home for me. Noni came to see us about this time last year and stayed to help with Alex those last couple of weeks and then was here for Roo's birth. That time was so very, very precious to me. I am so excited for you guys. Can't wait to hear the news!

Oh, and I LOVELOVELOVE the photos of Lila. So sweet - as usual. =)

I'm so excited for you and I can't wait to "meet" your new grandchild, Nanny! You have such beautiful grandkids.

My daughter's wedding is just a few weeks away so I'm also getting excited. My online time will be getting short for awhile..and I have a feeling so will yours :)
