My Life

I have been really busy lately and haven't been able to get much sewing done, so I'll tell you a little about what's been going on...
I made an emergency trip to be with my daughter, Rebecca.
Her water broke, and she was 32 weeks, her labor didn't start, and the doctors wanted little baby to wait for two weeks to make his appearance!
My daughter lasted for 6 days in the hospital.....
I was spending the night with her in the hospital because her husband had to get up super early for work.
She went into labor at about 1:30, and the contractions weren't even regular.  
Baby Jacob Uziel made his appearance at 2:15 am, April 8.
I was able to witness his birth, and his dad didn't even make it in time.....he just missed it....
I don't think I was able to help much because everything happened so fast!
Jacob weighed 4 lbs 15 oz, and never needed oxygen.
He's our 13th grandchild, and third grandson!
Isn't he adorable?

This is the latest photo that I received, I don't know if he's off his feeding tube yet, but he has to learn to suck, swallow and breathe at the same time before he can come home :)

I looked after his older brother Benjamin, who's 3 l/2.

That includes his mischievous and genius 5 year old sister, Maisie!

I was able to spend Charlotte's (Lindsay and Jeremy's little girl) 6th birthday with her....she wanted to get her ears pierced so badly, but was so nervous!!!

When it was all done and over, she was so happy with her new Elsa earrings!!!
She wanted to go on a date with her parents, to dinner and a movie.
Charlotte invited me to go along also, I had a fabulous time, and felt very special to be included :)

I was able to meet my new granddaughter, Taylor Evans.
She's our 12th grandchild, our tenth granddaughter.
What a doll, she even smiled for me :)
I think we may have known each other in the preexistence because she acted like she already knew me!
Sigh......she's beautiful!

While visiting with Taylor and her family (Jordan and Kim), these cousins got to hang out with each other.

My daughter Lindsay, and my son Jordan, and me!

I was thrilled beyond belief to be able to attend Kennedy's musical theater performance.
She was awesome as she sang her solo for Edelweiss, I was so proud of her!

My youngest son Sean is engaged to Kari, who made the trip home with me.
We toured Sacramento, San Francisco, and did lots of fun things together.
 I was sad to say goodbye to her...
I'm looking forward to their wedding.
We don't have a date yet, because Kari is from Costa Rica and they are waiting for their fiancé visa to be approved.
We hope that the date might be in July, that's a fabulous month to get married!

I have been playing catch up since I've been home.
I hope you've enjoyed this little peek into my life, I'll have some sewing to show you next week :)

  1. Cynthia, I enjoyed reading your post and seeing your family photos. The baby and your daughter have truly been blessed lately. I am happy to hear that the little man is doing well even though he is so small and so early.

    I am curious as to which temple is in the background in your photo. I am a member of the church and don't recognize that one - but there are so many to keep track of.

  2. I'm so glad that everyone is fine! Thank you for sharing! So great to see all the family pics.

  3. Hello Cynthia, your grand children are beautiful. I loved seeing their little faces. Your sweet Grand daughter who got her ears pierced looked so happy afterwards. Jacob is adorable. Such a strong little man. Hope you can relax and find some sewing time now. xx

  4. Jacob is such a wittle sweety!!! You are blessed to have so many grandchildren!
