Mira Jaya

I was on a wild adventure this past week.  No apologies when I say I didn’t mind being away from the blogging world for one minute…excitement was happening.

Mira Jaya and Gigi (Grandma Gayle)

I was in Sebastian where my daughter and her husband live to attend the birth of my granddaughter and first grandchild.  I left home last Saturday to be ready if the labor began over the weekend.  Sebastian is on the east coast of Florida, south of Melbourne.  It’s a sleepy, small retirement community…quiet and breezy from the winds coming off the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean. 

Mira Jaya Rose-Hutner was born Monday night, September 3rd (Labor Day) at the Indian River Medical Center in Vero Beach.  She weighed 8lbs. 6oz. and was 20 ½ inches long.  She came into the world very curious and looking around and seemingly listening when you spoke quietly to her.  Her Daddy held her close after she had been checked out…you could feel the love.  My daughter and the baby are doing very well. 

I arrived back home last night still flying high over the addition of this sweet, precious, new being in our family.  The best news of all…I’ve been asked to take care of little Mira when her Mom returns to work in a few weeks.  I’ll be moving over there within the next couple of months.  I can’t believe my good fortune.

Mira and Dad

Sharing this today with Occupy Blogosphere over at Soul Dipper’s place.  What’s more inspiring than a new little being entering our world?

  9. I am choked, Gayle. Just choked! Where are those new tissues I just unpacked?! You look and sound so happy and excited. Oh, Grandma, what a fabulous relationship you are about to build. What a bond. Blessings on all of you, but especially on the sweetest little girl I’ve seen in some time! This is a perfect Occupy submission – and you are taking it literally by moving there! 😀


    • Aww….what a sweet reaction to my good news, Amy…thank you! I think we’re going to be good friends…I can’t wait to get started. What an honor to have been chosen for this role…one that I will love. I knew this would be perfect for today over at Occupy! :~)


  10. Congratulations Gayle!! What wonderful news. And you get to look after her too! She’s a sweetie and you look so young!! Beautiful name too and the birthdays al together! Baby Tess is our fourth grandchild but the first girl! They are all 3 and under. We are in the UK and Tess and her two older brothers,James 3 and Fionn 2 live over in Ireland so we don’t see them too often but we Skype. Then we have little Theo who is 2 and he lives about half an hour car ride away so we see him loads and look after him one day a week. They bring so much joy! Many congrats once again!! 🙂



    • Many thanks, Christine…yes, many changes coming up which will be blessings for all of us. Well then you’re an old hand at being a grandma…four of the darlings…so nice. Wasn’t it nice to add a little girl to the mix?! Especially nice that you have one nearby so you can help look after him too…I can’t wait to get started…



  11. P.S. Christine…I may look young but I’m really “old”… I’ve looked younger than my years my whole life…bothered me something terrible when I was younger…now, I’m ok with it! 🙂


  12. What a wonderful happening for you, Gayle. Heartfelt congratulations on the birth of your absolutely beautiful grandaughter with such a lovely name. I wish blessings for her life, long and full of wisdom and joy and much love (which I can see she will have in abundance from Mom and Dad and Grandma! I don’t need to tell you to enjoy, and all the best for the move!


    • Thank you for the kind wishes and blessings for that sweet, tiny girl and your generous congratulations, Diane. I’m going to be in heaven! xoxo
