A New Leaf on the Tree

When our first eleven grandchildren were born Mr GeniAus and I hotfooted it to the hospitals to meet them at our first opportunity. In one case we even arrived a couple of hours prior to a delivery.

Amelia Anne 
I shed quite a few tears last weekend when my son phoned to share the news of Amelia Anne's arrival. I desperately wanted to visit the hospital to meet and greet her but because of my recent surgery I wasn't well enough to do so. Although I hadn't yet met Amelia I entered her details into my family history database and admired the photos her proud Dad sent me.

Her parents brought number twelve, Amelia Anne, home yesterday and for her first outing today popped around to have lunch with us. They made my day. More tears were shed as I cuddled this gorgeous little bundle of joy and then spent a couple of hours admiring her as she slept.

Her proud grandparents are thrilled to add this pretty new leaf to our family tree.
