Happiness is all About Henry!

I wonder who taught him that?  When his mother was younger and use to do that she said it meant I Love You!
I Love You too, Henry!

Henry is 5 months old.  Could a baby be any cuter than this?
I just need him here in Utah!  

Henry David Farrow

I am so in love with my little Henry.  We talk all the time.  I even babysit him.  Well, I call Jes on the phone and ask her to put the iPad in his crib so I can FaceTime with him.  We have so much fun together!  I make all kinds of crazy faces and sounds just to get him to laugh.  I love the new technology we have now.  The only problem is that Henry is going to grow up thinking I live inside the iPad.  He will really be in for a shock when one day he realizes I am more than just a silly face on a screen.  Love you Henry!

The Farrow Family
(I have the cutest Grandson)

I finally know what it is like to be a Grandma!  Henry David Farrow is the cutest grandchild ever! Well, so far.  I was lucky enough to be there while Jessica was in labor and for the delivery.  It was an amazing experience.  I have to say that it is hard to watch your daughter go through this experience.  I had a knot in my stomach the whole time knowing what lied ahead for her.  But I came away from this whole experience with so much love and respect for her and her ability to stay focused and committed to delivering that cute little boy naturally.  That was what she wanted to do and she did it.  I could never do it!  I also gained so much love and respect for John.  What a great husband he is.  So thoughtful, loving and kind.  He gave Jessica the support she needed to make this incredible sacrifice of herself in order to give birth to cute little Henry.  They are going to make the most wonderful parents!  I loved my time there being with Jessica and  John, sewing for the nursery, but most of all snuggling with my very first grandchild.  Hopefully there will be lots and lots more of the precious babies in our family.  Thank you Jessica and Johns for letting me be a part of this very special day!

My Little Girl is having a Baby!

It is hard to believe that MY daughter is having a baby.  Not only a baby but my first grandchild.  In the past I knew this day would come too fast . . . and yet in the past couple of years it could not have come soon enough.  Thanks to all of my friends who have bragged about how it is the most wonderful thing in the whole world.  So while I waited patiently I just stalked other peoples little kids and begged their parents to let me watch them.  I would even put pictures up on my fridge of them and when people would ask about my cute little friends I would tell them they were "My Fake Grandkids."  But not any more.  My very first real one is coming in a week or so! I look forward to that moment when I see my daughter hold that brand new baby in her arms for the first time and see those tears of the most amazing joy and love one could ever feel for another human being.  A feeling one could never find words to explain except that you fall in love like you have never done before.
I remember feeling that way towards Jessica and never wanting it to end.  I could not love on her enough.  My days were spent holding her constantly.  I never wanted to put her down.  I knew once I did, the day would come when I would have to let her go.  I was never one of those Moms who was excited for their kids to go back to school.  I wanted mine to stay home and play with me.  Over the years I offered to build on to our house so that each of the girls would never have to leave.  They could stay there with me forever along with their families.  But they never liked that idea quite as much as I did.  My last ditch effort was to have their boyfriends sign a contract stating that if they were to get married he would not be able to take her out of state.  Blah!  I failed that one too.
I am just really excited to see Jessica and John with this new little baby who will change their lives forever and begin a new amazing journey together.

Love You So Much!

Art project in Design from Spring 2012 Semester.  Took this picture of me and . . .

made this out of torn paper.  Looks like my hair is a crazy shower cap.  
(nothing new for me to have crazy hair)

I was so excited when we went to Disney World  to find this sign in Epcot.  The Corkrey's are from the county of Cork in Ireland.

This is my Goal!  No matter what is going on in my life - I will be Happy!
