This is little Stella Winslow's first portrait, with her mother, Cory. To me this photo of my grand-daughter and third great-grandchild is very amazing. Stella arrived via c-section about three weeks early -- it had been a long painful day for Cory but she looks to me like she's just won the Miss America contest. Or, from a different point of view, considering the surgical look of the picture it seems the most 21st century new baby and mother picture -- could have been on a space ship on the way to another galaxy ... maybe? But then many hospitals DO seem a lot like space ships and operate a bit like alternate galaxies, I think.
As the great-grandmother I have absolutely no doubt that little Stella will some day be as beautiful as her mother and before that a cute as her two little brothers already are.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
