I finally got to meet great-niece Lily Riffle on Thanksgiving day.
She’s a heart-stealer. Six months old next week. Cute as a bug. Pretty quiet too.
And from my own camera:
My sister Karen, the grandmother.
Blayne and Sarah with their daughter.
Nephew Blayne, Lily’s father.
Nephew Luke with baby Lily.
I think Lily was doing something in her diaper.
Karen with her granddaughter.
Great-niece Lily. And my niece Anna.
My father got to meet his great-granddaughter this past weekend.
Pop with baby Lily. Standing: Blayne, the father; Karen, the grandmother (which still seems odd to say); Beth, the great-aunt.
My sister Karen, now a grandmother, with her granddaughter Lily.
My sister Karen posted this photo of her granddaughter Lily (who is, of course, my great-niece).
Lily was born 10 weeks early, and her due date was the past Friday. She is a healthy and hearty baby who is really quite cute, as babies go.
Two meanings of the word:
From my garden, daylilies this week.
From Springfield, Missouri, my great-niece Lily Riffle, ten days old and several week premature, but delightfully healthy.
