I hope you enjoy!

I love the card but yeah newborns tend to have some kind of cuteness spell they put on you. When I had both my boys I just wanted to stare at them for hours! Congrats on the new grandbaby!

Focus on the grandbaby . . . the rest will wait.

As always, I love the card! Happy Holidays sister!
