Guess Who !

Not sure what she is doing,

I think she is looking for the cat.

They are very good friends.

by all who love her dearly.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves. :)

Tesa is Courtney’s oldest sister, and will be starting high school in Sept.She wants to take a photography course which they offer at her school. Makes me smile. :) I think she will take after her grandma, and Uncle Ed. I am hoping to take her out with me taking pictures more often in the near future.


These are my 3 Angels who I am so very proud of. :)


I have added Courtney’s  1st Birthday, and pictures from when she was born on Aug.3 2008 to this Post, down below . It is so hard to believe she is already 2 yrs. old , and so very hard to believe Tesa is going into grade 9.  Wow! Time sure has a way of flying by. Time stands still for no one. Each and every day is a gift, and so are these beautiful grandchildren of mine.

I am truly Blessed.

Hope to find you all well. Have a wonderful week.

Hugs and Smiles

Dianne :)

She had a safe arrival. She was put in the nursery for observation due to high levels of sugar in her blood. Please continue to pray for her that her blood sugars will go back to a normal and healthy level and that she will be a healthy bouncing baby girl. I told her I would buy her a camera for her birthday next year and we will go clicking the wonders of her world.

Thank you for your prayers and your support. I sure do appreciate it. Mom is doing well also. I give honour and praise to My Lord for answering yours and my prayers. He does have His hand on her life.

I brought  home my 5 yr. old granddaughter Jenna for the night.  She was thrilled to see her new baby sister.

I had no idea what my next post would be. Little did I know my new granddaughter would be born 3 weeks early and thank God she arrived safely. I am so tickled pink. :) Dianne

P.S All photos taken by me ( Grandma ) with my new little Fugifilm Finepix S1000fd camera. The video on this little camera is amazing. I am glad I got it or I would not have been able to do a video.  I will not post it though. Hope you all understand.

Baby and mom doing fine

Good Morning one and all, I just got a report from my son that Courtney is doing fine and is with mom. Her blood sugars are normal and she has got a clean bill of health and mom and baby will be able to go home in the next couple of days. Truly this is an answer to your prayers and mine.  Thank God and each one of you for your prayers and support. I really appreciate it. :) Dianne



I got to hold my precious granddaughter for the first time today. My heart melted like butter. I will never be the same again. I held her until I had to give her up to all those waiting in line. It was then that I once again picked up my camera and couldn't stop clicking. This is only a few images that I took today. I have 3 very precious grandchildren. All girls.  Tesa, Jenna and now Courtney. I am very protective of them and my family but I just had to post this new photo album. :) Dianne

Courtney was 5lbs. 2 oz. at Birth. She is 4lbs. 13oz. today. She is so tiny and she has developed some jaundice as well but the Drs. seem to think she will be fine and that it is somewhat normal for premature babies. They sure don't keep them in the hospital very long these days.  Please remember her in your prayers , that she will start to gain some weight and not loose anymore or we wont be able to find her in her bassinet. :) Grandma ( Dianne)

DSCF0848 Courtney! wk. old


Courtney is now a week old. I stopped in to see how everyone was doing. I held my granddaughter  and this time she was awake and her beautiful blue eyes were open and she smiled and grinned at me and made all kinds of wonderful sounds. I did not get any pictures of this amazing time as I was too caught up in that special moment . She fell asleep and mom was getting her ready to go out in her stroller seen here. It is so neat as her car seat converts into a stroller.You can see how tiny she is although we think she has gained some weight and the jaundice is fading away.
