She is blessed to have you in her life and she will bring you more love, joy and amazement than you ever dreamed possible!

So cute is she! AND we share the same birthday :) The thing about being a Grandma is- you are willing to just drop everything for what the little one needs- sometimes to the amazement of your children who think you have lost your mind :)
