Now I understand...

... how large love is.

When I was expecting my dear daughter Laura I thought, "I don't know how I'll love this baby as much as I love Will."
But I did.
I so did.

Before my granddaughter Nell was born (late last Monday night), I thought, "I wonder how I'll be with Caroline and the A-Team (Andrew and Anna).   I have loved them so much, but they're Peggy's (my late twin's) grandchildren.   Maybe I will be different with them now, now that I have my own grandchild.

Ah, but love is large.  Love is HUGE!

I found myself beside myself looking forward to seeing them and being with them.... which I did and was yesterday.

I mean I couldn't get to them and hug them fast enough.

Just by chance you haven't seen pictures of them, here are some recent ones..
That's Caroline showing us the dress that her daddy bought her,
when they went out on a daddy-daughter date.

Here's Andrew, when I said, 'Smile for the camera, Andrew!'
He said, "I'll do a monkey-smile."

And here's Anna at her brother's ball game..
I said, "Look at me, Anna."  
And she did.  

So I was curious how I'd be with them after Nell was born.

Well, now I know.

I think I love them more than ever!

And of course I love Princess Nell.

I went to see her yesterday at her house....
Mother and baby are doing well.

And so is Will.

It's a wonderful life.

My next post will be about Caroline
and the wonderful event that took place at Lake Grapevine.

Stay tuned.
