How Shelia Got Her Groove Back

Hello, Dear Ones!
Have you seen that movie "How Stella Got Her Groove Back"?
Well, just to sum it up, Stella is smitten by a younger man.

 I have to tell you ~ this has happened to me too!
I've been smitten by a younger man!
What a time we've had...strolls on the beach in the sun.
 The first time I saw him I was truly smitten.
It was love at first sight.
I'm in love with little Camp!
 We hit it off immediately.
He is so talented and can hold his head up for long periods of time
 already at only a little over 6 weeks old.
But the one thing he really does well is spit up! :)

 I was certainly going to do every thing I could to enable my little love to do his best at his spitting up talent! 

This is where I really got my groove back.
I sat down at my sewing machine and started making burp cloths for my little man.
 I grabbed some baby flannel and started cutting and sewing.

 Now little Camp can continue to get his groove on too as he spits up all over his new burp cloths.

 It never hurts to have a couple of stuffies to hold and look at too.
I amaze myself sometimes at my talent! :)
If you don't know me very well, know I'm just teasin'! :)
Now I must tell you my new relationsip with my little man is a long distant affair.
It just breaks his little heart and mine too!
Well, I am back in the groove though! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Some Day My Prince Will Come

Someday my prince will come
Someday I'll find my love
And how thrilling that moment will be
When the prince of my dreams come to me
He'll whisper, 'I love you'
And steal a kiss or two
Though he's far away, I'll find my love some day
Someday when my dreams come true
~ from Snow White

  6. Shelia
    Your little Camp is adorable! I know how hard it is to be a long distance g'ma too.
    Your burp cloths will come in handy and your stuffed creatures are so cute!

  7. I love this post, Shelia! What a handsome fellow; I can see why you fell for this much younger man. :-D Congratulations on your darling new grandson; I think it's wonderful that you got to spend some time with him. I LOVE the darling burp cloths you made -- did you make the stuffed cuties too?

    I just want to let you know that I'm SO sorry about your dear mother, Shelia. I have meant to stop by sooner and tell you so, but things have been really hectic around our house, and I've been taking a little blogging break (of a sort). I know you will miss your mother but am sure she is in a better place. I'm glad you're getting your groove back.

    Warmest hugs to you,


  8. I think you have found your prince, girlfriend! And what a handsome man he is, too! He'll look even better when he gets his spit (er burp) cloths and his little toys. But you have competition, because I think all of us are in love with him :)

    Hugs ~ Mary

  36. Isn't it wonderful being smitten by someone so adorable? I love being an grandmother. So lucky to have my Livvie 11 and Piper 6 months. Love the burp cloths you made.

  37. I have not visited a lot of my favorite blogs lately so I was behind on all your news. I am so sorry to read about the passing of your mother, but so pleased that you have your adorable new grandson. I tried (again) to subscribe by email, so maybe it will work this time. Maybe I can do a better job o keeping up!

  38. Hi Shelia, I'm smitten too. He is adorable. You are such a good mom and grandma. Who but you would think to make burp cloths. When he is older one day you can remind him of it. HA! I'm sorry he is so far away. I do adore the photos you shared today. I love your new hair do and I don't think I have told you. Smile!!!
    Love, Jenne

  39. Oh, what a sweetie pie! I know it just breaks your heart to be far away from him, but when he gets a tiny bit older, he will look forward to seeing you because it is a "special" thing to do. My son would always break into tears when we would load him in the car to leave his Grandparent's house and head back home.

  40. He is so adorable Shelia, I love the last picture of him and those burp cloths are so sweet!

  41. You do have talent, those burp cloths are great and so needed with babies. What a precious little fella, I can certainly understand your being smitten!

  42. You always do such cute post. What a cute little guy. You make a great couple.

  43. This is just the cutest post Sheila! He is so adorable!
    And I love your cute little burp and spit cloths. He is going to be Grandma's boy.
    What a darling!

  44. Oh Sheila, so happy to see you back again! and smiling. I can see why you have this love affair going on too. You just can't help yourself! XO

  45. Oh my, your little Camp is absolutely adorable!!! It is hard to have a long distance love affair, you will have to visit as often as possible. But this is be a forever kind of love, isn't it!

  46. He is absolutely gorgeous. I don't blame you for being smitten. Thanks for sharing his photos. The burp cloths are so cheerful. Nice job.

  47. Shelia,
    What an adorable little man, Camp is!!!
    I adore the photo of you looking into each otherseyes!!!
    YES!!! You are very talented, dear friend!!!
    Cute, cute, cute burp cloths!!! Love the little patch~eye pup!!!
    I use to sing ,"One day my Prince will come. . ."
    and dance about my pink & white bedroom in my childhood. . .
    then we moved to live near my Grandmother when I was entering High School. . .
    and "Mr. Ed" drove up in his white Ford Fairlane.
    The rest is history! Oh~h~h. . .and they lived happily ever after!!! Of course!
    Thanks for sharing your sweet grandson with all of us!!!

  48. Oh Shelia, you totally slay me with your talent for selecting just the right song to accompany your posts!
    You made my heart sing a little tune when you said you have your groove back - can't keep such a talented gal down for too long hey!?
    Isn't Camp just too cute, no wonder you are completely smitten dear girl. No doubt Mr Precious is too!
    Although I've been missing in action on an extended holiday break, I have kept up with your latest posts and was walking the path albeit in spirit with you and the loss of your little Mum.
    Much love and hugs to you Shelia dear and your new arrival and safe keeping of your loving family.

  49. What a beautiful little man! No wonder you have lost your heart to him!

  50. Una nueva alegría te ha llegado. Simplemente hermoso.

    1. Thank you for popping in, Shirley! I hope you're doing well.
      Be a sweetie.
      Shelia ;)

  51. I don't know why it's taken me so long to visit your blog Sheila! I really need to get out more ;).

    Your grandson is precious, but you already know that. I like to say grandchildren are our reward for not killing our teens.

    I see we have sewing in common also. Anyway, I'm so happy to make your acquaintance and will look forward to more grandson updates.

  52. He is just soooooosweeeet!
    What a charmer,

  53. Sheila, he is precious! Maybe one day I will have some grands.


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
