We finally were able to go to Cincinnati on Sunday and I got to spend some quality time holding grand-baby number nine! I was sick for more than a week after he was born and didn't get to go to the hospital with Mike. Shortly after I got well, Mike came down with the sickness, then it was the natural dye workshop and finally the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival.
Baby Atticus is such a little blond cutie, it was hard to relinquish him, once I got my hands on him. I'm a baby lover from way back and there's nothing I enjoy more than having a tiny body snuggled up against me. After raising three boys and experiencing the eight grandchildren before him, I know all too well that these first months go by in a blur. Crimson and Taylor are in a bit of a newborn-in-the-house fog, but settling in and hitting their stride in their roles as a mom and dad. We can't wait for Atticus to be big enough to come find out what life on the farm is all about!
