Dreaming of Babies!

Hello Dear Ones! Most of you know I'm going to be a grandmother for the first time and I'm just in ELATION HEAVEN! This is very exciting and I find myself thinking, longing and dreaming about my grand baby to be. So what's a blogger grandmother to be to do? Post babies, that's what!

So I'm joining Dear Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday and Dear Sally at Smiling Sally for Blue Monday.


Will we have a little boy? Oh, just look at all the preciousness of little boys!


Or we could have a tiny little girl. Just look at all the adorableness of little sweet girls!


Little boy?


Or little girl?


You know I don't think it's going to matter. I'll take either one! :)

My thanks to Dear Sally and Dear Mary for hosting these great Monday events.



















Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

No Greater Love

Before I knew Your Name,
You knew my ev’ry breath.
Before I found my way,
You knew my ev’ry step.
Before I knew everything that I need,
You gave it all to me.

No greater love than this…
That You should lay down Your life
For someone such as me;
I’d spend a lifetime wondering why.
The Beauty of Heaven
Is here in my heart
And I know there can be
No greater love than this.

I never understood
How merciful Love could be,
Until I felt His Flame
Light every part of me
And I would give everything that I am
’ Cause I have been saved;
Yes, I have been saved!

No greater love than this…
That You should lay down Your life
For someone such as me;
I’d spend a lifetime wondering why.
The Beauty of Heaven
Is here in my heart
And I know there can be
No greater love.

The Beauty of Heaven
Is here in my heart
And I know there can be
No greater love...
For someone such as me.
No greater love...than this.

  1. What wonderful pictures! And, I just know that your grandbaby is going to be just as adorable. I had a March baby; and I remember thinking this time of the year that it would be spring before he arrived. It seemed like forever away, but the time went fast. It's a great time of the year to have a baby! Sally

  2. Each and every one of these babies is adorable. Oh, can I get one??

    I am so happy for you Shelia. You are going to be the BEST grandmother!! I can feel your excitement and I would be the same way too. It's just that I am going to be 90 years old before I have a grandchild at the rate my kids are going. The toddler will have more teeth than me! lol!!

    Have a wonderful week, my dear Shelia!! :-)

  5. Such adorable pictures! Enjoy your dreams about babies. When you little one arrives he or she will be far better than what you've imagined! Being a grandparent is wonderful. Our grandson turned 7 months this past week.

  47. Such sweetness here, Shelia...you can't imagine the love you are going to feel for this little baby. We love OUR little babies so much and then they grow up and we miss the "little child love"...then, walla, along come grandbabies and we get to have that "little" love all over again!!
    We get to smell that baby smell again..hear the little slurping sounds they make..see those little baby smiles...feel those little arms around our necks and, soon, hear "I love you, Memaw"..Oh, my...
    I am getting all teary and my throat is burning...I will have to go visit my great grandbaby tonight, I guess!! :O)

  54. Hello Sheila, I'm home where my heart is and am so happy to be visiting you this morning. I sure did miss my computer this past week. However, my trip to MI was wonderful. Thank you so much for visiting me while I was gone.

    Oh how I love those darling babies. I can truly understand why you have babies on your mind. I am so very happy for your family. Your dreams of being a grandma are finally coming true.

    I scrolled down to your tablescape and those bluebird dishes are gorgeous, as is your table. I am glad you posted it again as I never saw the first one. It is all just beautiful. The votive artichokes are unusual and so sweet. I love them too.

    Have a happy day.

    Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

  73. Hi Shelia
    Which would you choose if you could eh? Fortunately we don't have to choose and it doesn't matter whether you'll have a little girl or a little boy it's safe to say you'll still be a loving grandmother and not grandfather..*lol*... I couldn't help myself.
    Your baby mosaics are beautiful...so darling. I know you just can't wait.
    hope you are doing well...

  76. You are going to be one of the best grandmas ever! That little one will be truly blessed to have you. I share your excitement and can't wait to see if it will be a boy or girl, but like you said, it doesn't really matter, just so its a healthy baby!

    You must think I've been ignoring you since it has been so long since I've posted. I just haven't even logged in for such a long time. This computer is so slow and freezes up, and sometimes I just get tired of the internet. Can you believe I just said that? lol
