HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAXWELL
TWO YEARS OLD!
Celebrating his second birthday with Thomas
YOUR FIRST MILESTONE
Already One Year Old:
He enjoyed his first birthday
Loving it with Mommy!
The special addition package which arrived in August is now seven months old and cute as cute can be. Here he is posing for a picture with his two brothers and loving the camera.
My Gorgeous Grandson, he just makes my day. I can’t believe he is already three months. He is a precious handful, he still keeps his mother up at nights, but he is beginning to wind down. He sleeps more now and is a little less demanding … sometimes. Love him to bits.
Watching his mother preparing dinner
The world stopped spinning, everything is on the back burner, my fashion blog is being neglected, all else is insignificant. The Prince made his arrival at 10:30 am this morning and everything pales in comparison to this bundle of joy. My grandson!
I want to thank my family and friends for sharing your kind sentiments on the birth of my grandson. We know that when family matters all other matters will fall into their proper place. I trust life brings you joy happiness now and always. God Bless.

END OF SUMMER DINNER
I attended an end of summer dinner on Saturday. The food was excellent and was only matched by the the talented entertainment that followed. I attempted to video tape the gifted dancer’s rendition of the “butterfly” only to discover at the end of the dance that while my camera was turned on the video was not activated. I’m heart broken that I was unable to capture this magnificent dance.
