A Year in The Life

Lathyrus odartus , aka, Sweet Pea on her 2nd Birthday

Grandma Carolyn and Lea

Lea and Jojo

What a difference a year makes in a young life.  Lea flew in from North Carolina to Chicago to visit us for her second birthday and we had a professional photographer shoot some pictures of her .  We miss her so much and each passing day brings something new.  I'm so happy that I was able to be the main care giver in her first two years of life. 

Thank goodness also for modern technology.  I'm able to visit her every week on Skype and when she sees me she kisses the computer screen. 




  1. Oh, Carolyn. Lea is just a beautiful child and you are a blessed grandmother. I'm so glad you're able to spend time together. Christmas blessings! :-)

  2. Just precious! I ♥ the blossoms on her sweater! And, yes! Thank God for technology. Skype is a WONDER!

  3. Such a cutie pie. I love that she kisses the computer screen when she sees you on it.

  4. Aw, Happy Birthday sweet little Sweet Pea!

    She is a beautiful child Carolyn! How wonderful you got to see her in person for her birthday.

    (One grandma to another, I get a little choked up imagining how much you must miss her.)

  5. Perfect!

    In case I don't have the opportunity to return until after Christmas - I hope you have a wonderful one and that 2011 will be full of happiness.
