What a week! It began with a toothache on a tooth with no signs of decay, followed by sick Royals with strep and croup, a delivery with some scary complications, a root canal, and a beautiful new granddaughter. It was a crazy, scary, exciting and emotional week. While exhausted, we are feeling truly blessed. You can find photos of Hazel Vivian on my Instagram page. Be safe, be kind, and Stay Caffeinated.

Wowza, what a week. Full of ups and downs–but mostly ups! Congratulations on your beautiful new granddaughter!
Sounds like an absolutely crazy week but I’m so glad everything is okay. I love her name. Hazel is so beautiful and classic and pairs so well with Vivian! Hope you’re having a lovely week.
Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard
Congratulations on the arrival of the newest Royal! Hazel is beautiful, and I am so glad she and your daughter came through the complications safely. And that you got your root canal taken care of. May this week be much, much calmer, and may your whole family be blessed with joy and good health.
Oh my goodness me! WHAT a week… Huge congratulations on the safe arrival of little Hazel Vivian – she looks adorable. And huge commiserations on the dental work – root canal fillings are NOT welcome at any time. I hope the other Royals are now on the road to recovery. Have a less eventful and more peaceful week, Kimberly!

Congrats on the new grandbaby! I’m sorry to hear about the root canal and all of that. That all sounds crazy!
Huge congrats Kim on your new granddaughter.
Amazing week you had. Congrats for the newbie in your life!
welcome to Hazel – the littlest princess…
and hope you all feel all better soon..
Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer
Toothaches are the worst. I hope feel better soon.
Hazel is a pretty name. Congratulations. Glad they came through the complications okay.
Sorry the others have strep and croup. Hope they feel better quickly.
I hope your tooth is better. (My granddaughter had a root canal last week too.)
I hope this week will be calmer as you continue to enjoy your reading and stay safe.
Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
WOW what a week for you guys. Congratulations on the grand-baby. May this week be full of joyful moments and less craziness.
Yeah, that describes one roller-coaster of a week. Yay for the newest princess but sad her cousins had a dreary week. Sounds like you are hanging in there. 🙂
Have a good- and uneventful- next week, Kimberly!
Wow I didn’t know about the complications but now that I think about it, that explains the C-section. I’m glad all is better. Maybe you can relax into the holiday season. Stay safe.
Anne - Books of My Heart
Well yay for the week being over and having Hazel as the prize!
Nise' (Under the Boardwalk)
Wow, that certainly was a week! Congrats on the arrival of Hazel. Hope those sick will heal quickly.

It seems like when it rains it pours! Congratulations on your new granddaughter Hazel. Teeth problems are such a pain. I hope you and the other little one are on the mend. Happy reading and listening this week.
I hope your tooth is feeling better – and hopefully the kiddoes are doing well too. Congrats to the newest member of your family. She has such a beautiful name.

Jennifer | Book Den
Wow, what a week! I hope everyone is doing better now!!
Just Reading Jess
I loved The Wrong Family. How to Catch a Queen is also good.
You have had a heck of a week but YAY! Hazel is adorable. I keep scrolling back to her pictures on FB and Insta! Best Christmas Gift ever! She is just too cute. Congrats to your daughter and to you!
Have a great week, Kim! Happy Reading! xx
That sounds like a huge week. And congrats on the new grand kid, she is adorable. I hope your ache gets better too.
Rita @ Books Are My Comfort Zone
The most perfect face on your new grandbaby! So cute! Is she a sister to the Royals or another child of yours? Anyway God bless you in this crazy, exhausting time! If the doc couldn’t find anything with your tooth, consider it might be TMJ, one of the “lovely” side affects of my various medical conditions. The pressure could make a tooth feel achy.
So, I don’t have any bookish things to share right now as I step in and out of the blogosphere but I wanted to congratulate you on the baby. And Hazel, a sweet old-school name <3 Rita
Hazel is a cousin to the Royals, and my oldest daughter’s first child. The Royals come from my youngest daughter. 🙂
Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books
That is the week to top all weeks! Holy madness… The pictures of your new granddaughter are awesome. Congratulations, again, to you all and I hope the Royals make a speedy recovery too!
Hope everyone is feeling better, and congratulations on your newest addition. Saw the pictures on Instagram – perfection!
Congratulations to you and her parents.
Congratulations on your granddaughter, and to the happy parents too ! I saw her picture on Twitter, she’s beautiful and has a lovely name 🙂 I’m sorry about your teeth, though, what a pain. I hope your week to come will be zen, peaceful and happy *hugs*
Congratulations on the new granddaughter! I love the name Hazel. Happy reading!
Tressa @ Wishful Endings
Oh my goodness! I had my first root canal last year and don’t want to repeat it. I’m glad it seemed it went well. Congrats on the new granddaughter. It sounds like it was a bit rough, but hopefully she and her mom are doing well! I hope this week is much less exciting for you!
Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms
Congratulations on the new addition to your family! I’m so happy for you all, and littlest princess is the cutest baby I’ve seen in a long time 🙂
Have a wonderful week ahead, my dear friend. *hugs*
Congrats on your granddaughter! How sweet! I hope everyone is feeling better. Have a great week!
Congratulations on your beautiful new baby granddaughter! And, boy, what stories you are going to have for her about the week she was born 🙂 Enjoy ❤️
Glad to hear everything ended well with the birth of your granddaughter! Sounds like some emotional ups and downs! Ah! A toothache, strep, and croup on top of everything else?! Eeeeek!
I plan on signing up for the new audio book challenge, but I’m still trying to meet this years goal! Might be working at it until the end of the year. 🙂
Maureen @ Maureen’s Books
That sounds like a very intense week. I hope you’re feeling better.
And again.. congratulations with your beautiful granddaughter.
Stay safe and happy reading.
Maura @ A Bookish Star
Congrats on your new granddaughter!! Hopefully, next week will be better in the tooth department. Toothache and pains are the worst!!
Jen at Introverted Reader
Congratulations and welcome to little Hazel! I’m glad everything turned out okay with her delivery and I hope everyone else starts feeling better soon.
Enjoy your week!
Congrats on the newest grandchild! Enjoy, and you have some great books to read, too. I am eyeing The Wrong Family, and have pre-ordered it.
Have a great week!
Congratulations on the newest member of the fam! How awesome!! Sorry to hear about the other stuff though- toothaches, root canals, complications- yikes. Hope everyone is feeling better and doing well now. Take care and rest up Kimba!!
