In this holiday season - and a quite unusual, intense and busy one for me and mine, I might add - I am running a bit late on my LBC blogging.  But, Maria / Gaelikaa brought this topic to us and I am determined to do my part!  Today, I will be channeling another person, a little person who will be a regular participant from this point forward.

Hi, I'm the newest member of the family, Newbie Fossil!  It isn't easy coming out of one of the nicest spas in the universe to the harsh light of day.  The responsibilities they lay on a kid!  Wake up.  Eat.  Poop.  Sleep.  Repeat.  I mean, it is unending!

Oh, and did I tell you that they packed me up from the hospital and brought me to some place they call home?

I think this is more work than it's supposed to be, right?  I mean, it even wears out my Dad:

I mean, Mom is carrying a load right now and I get how she could be tired:

Still, all of us women in this family hang together and she seems to be doing great in spite of it all!

If they can do it, I can do it!  I'm determined!

But, there are times ...


  1. What a cutie! Congratulations Grandpa!

  2. @Delirious

    She is a little pocket sweetie right now. A real dink!

  3. Wow! Newbie Fossil is a real heart jerker. I wonder if she realises how broody she makes me?

    Have a wonderful life young lady, I can see you have grandpa wrapped round you little finger already. Enjoy!

  4. @Grannymar

    She has an entire team wrapped around her little finger! It is beautiful to see a family work together like they should to give the best start to a new life. We are just as aware that big sister needs to always have a place front and center and she seems to really be enjoying everything just like all the rest!

  5. Congrats Grandpa, may you spend more time with your whole team...

  6. @cedar51

    Thank you, and I intend to do just that!

  7. Congratulations to the family Fossil, couldn't have happened at a better time of year. Love that last picture … too cute.

    Her middle name in the non-fossilized world is Noel in recognition of the season!

  9. That Chrysalis will turn out to be a beautiful butterfly. I am determined to prod you into sharing that process with us.

    You won't have to prod much!
