Too Cute For Words
OK, I lied.
There will be words.
But don't try and tell me I'm just biased because this adorable baby is my newest grandson. You know he's cute! I can hear you ooohing and aahhhing. I bet you're saving this picture as your new wallpaper. It's OK. I give you permission :)
This was Eli's first Sunday at church. And I must point out, that Jacqueline looks pretty good herself for having a 6 day old baby. I like the way the candid shot makes them look like they're movie stars being caught by some paparazzi outside their Hollywood place of worship. Brad Pitt has got nuthin' on my son-in-law Nathan.
And of course, like all new moms, my daughter plays classical music for her newborn.
He's even starting to show a preference for Mozart. She got this idea from me.
Only difference between her and me is that I used a cassette tape (....or was it a phonograph?) and she plays the piano herself.
Lest you think the cuteness is limited to my newborn grandchildren, here are two pictures of Cooper and Adeline playing "midwife".
I love how he's measuring her tummy in the plastic tub, especially since their mother has water homebirths (can't remember the official name of the method...)
And being entertained in the background is the grandson who was booted out of his "newest grandchild" position after only 6 weeks, Thomas the Terrific.
Here's Cooper with his new firetruck, coincidentally given to him by Me :)
This last picture makes me cry for two reasons.
1. Adeline has pigtails! And babies aren't supposed to have pigtails, which means she's getting to be a big girl. Don't you hate it when they go from babies to toddlers? And it happens in the blink of an eye. Especially if you live 7 hours away from them (sniff:sniff)
2. She looks EXACTLY like her mother looked at her age. Which Could Not have been thirty years ago, could it have???????????????
Come back tomorrow. I know it's anticlimatic, but I finally have a picture of my Christmas tree to show you.
And maybe by early spring I'll even have my New Years pictures up.
