I jumped right on board with Lynne's "I ♥ Being a Grandma" Blog Hop because, simply put, there's not much I love more than being with my granddaughter, Charlotte! (I had to put it that way, in case my daughter or husband reads this post and gets jealous -- but truthfully, nothing brings me more joy at all ... she's top on my list ... than my granddaughter, Charlotte.)
I joined the ranks of the blissfully happy grandma's on December 6, 2010. Charlotte Grace was a pretty baby, made more beautiful with time and the ever-evolving charming personality. My heart swells when she calls my name ("Giiiiiii" to Charlotte) and runs to me, extending her arms for me to pick her up.

Charlotte and her parents Emily and Josh live less than a mile from me, so I am privileged to babysit the Little Charmer often. (She'll be here this morning while Daddy works and Mommy gets some shut-eye after working a night shift as a pediatric nurse.)
She was over for a usual-Friday night dinner (love them!). I didn't have her favorite foods in-house, so I quickly dashed out to the store and bought her a smorgasbord of stuff she likes: including berries (with a little dash of whipped cream "fooshie" as "dip"), grapes and bananas.
When I presented her sectioned plate of cut-up fruit, her eyes widened and she let out a joyous and unexpected, "Oh WOW!" Her spirit and joy are contagious!
It was then that I came up with this digital layout to feature in today's blog hop. Gosh, with all the great digital tools and digital pictures, cell phone pics, etc., it's so easy these days to document e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g!!!
OK, I do know that there are a few more grandchildren in the world and blog-land (though none is more adorable than my Charlotte!), so I'm going to move you along on the Blog Hop to see how boastful other grandmas can be.
Your next stop is: GRANDMA ANITA!
