Our beautiful Granddaughter, Soraya, turns two today! Two years of laughter, cuddles and such precious moments. From the moment I first held her my heart was hers for the keeping! 

Everyone told me that the love for a grandchild was different, we love our children so much but a Grandparents love is deep-rooted and all consuming.
Perhaps it is the fact we have more time or maybe realise that time flies by so quickly and we take the time to enjoy them more. Either way I must say that I cherish every moment with her and love seeing her develop into the amazing person she is and will be.

 When she snuggles up to me or strokes my hand I feel like the luckiest woman in the world. When she asks for something sweet and tasty and says "Please Gy" (she cant pronounce Grams yet!) my heart turns into a huge marshmallow.

She already has such an amazing sense of humour and she loves the reaction she gets to her little jokes! I love the way she is so gentle with our dogs, no pulling, just gentle strokes, they love her too!

The world is definitely a better place since she arrived. We are all smitten with her, her uncles are never far away when she visits!

I am so lucky to be able to spend so much time with her and I thank my Daughter and Son-in-law for letting me do this.

They are wonderful parents and it is a great feeling knowing that they love and care for their little daughter so well.

I could talk about  Soraya all day as you probably realise by now! So, for now, HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRETTY BLUE EYES,  Grams and Papa  love you so much! xxx

I love the color of her hair.
Grandkids....they just have a way of melting your heart, don't they...We have 4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters and they are truly the most wonderful enjoyment of my life...

Oh girl, I could go on and on too...
Enjoy that baby, cause they have a tendency to grow way to fast..

She is stunning, isn't amazing how quickly you can fall in love with a child! Duke say's "woof, woof" that's "thank you" in dog talk for the birthday wishes! Have a wonderful weekend!

Hello Annemarie!

Happy 2nd Birthday to your beautiful little Angel! She is gorgeous (as is her Mummy!) and such a lucky little girl to have been born into such a loving family!

This is a beautifully written post, celebrating her. One day, when she's old enough, she will really be able to appreciate this!

I saw you'd joined as a follower of my blog, but I've been so busy catching up with everyone this week, I have been slower than usual with saying...WELCOME! I have joined up right away as your newest follower and look forward to visiting as often as possible.

Have a super weekend!

Good morning Annemarie
So glad you dropped by and said hi.
You, too, have a lovely blog, and the prettiest little blue eyed granddaughter ever! She is definitely going to be a heart breaker, but we won't talk about that now! :)
I loved the beautiful birthday tribute to your precious mom and dad. I miss mine too.
