So Big

 

My adorable grandson spent the night with us while my daughter and SIL celebrated their 2nd anniversary yesterday.  Ironically, it was just as cold as it was two years ago and yes, it snowed in Atlanta most of the day.  Hmm…yet there was no panic, school closings or mad rush to the grocery store.  Sorry, I digress!

After having a 10 month old for 27 hours straight, I have one comment to make.

There’s a reason why you have children when you are young!  Old people do not have the stamina as the youngsters do.  (how does Nancy Grace do it with her twins at her age, I'll never know)  The little guy is teething so I am aware that is a major contributor, however, I just want to believe that he missed me from 1:30 to 2:30 a.m. and wanted to spend quality time with his Grama.  And 4:30 to 5:00 a.m.  At 6:30 a.m. this morning, he wanted to have a serious talk about his upcoming birthday celebration. 

Luckily, I turned over my responsibilities to his Grampa at 7:00 a.m. and dove back in bed at 7:30 for a few more hours of sleep. 

But, look at that face!  I will walk a million miles to hug that little guy.  And yes, he will spend many more nights at our home, but it is so worth it when that little face smiles that toothless smile at me.

What a little cutie.
Yep, he missed his grama at 1:30, 4:30 and 6:30 AM, I'd stick with that story. Isn't it great being a grandma?

I am not an official grandmom- but I am a "RaRa". My manfriend's grandson can't say Shara, so, I am RaRa... and you are definitley right- I admire Emily (the mom) for being so young AND mature AND being THE mom.

It never gets old. Enjoy your precious Jack.

Thanks Mother! He told me that he woke up because he missed you! He however didn't realize that his crib and your bed were in the same room. He apologizes and loves you dearly.

Grandbabies are the best thing ever!! But I can relate! I have 3 that live 7 doors down, I went part time to help out & sometimes I am exhausted!! But I love every minute of it.

Oh and let's not forget my new grandbaby that lives down by Atlanta. We are leaving in a few minutes to visit him & I will take night duty!!!!! So the 6+ hour drive + night duty will have me yawning, too.

You are so lucky to be so close to Jack...What I wouldn't give to be near our Miss SOphie...but we have been warned...we leave tuesday for Jersey and daughter already let grandpa know that she's gotten so heavy he might not want to carry her all over....fears of a hernia!! Enjoy every minute...asleep or awake that you spend with this precious little guy...
