My Little Preemie, my how he's growing

Just about the time a woman thinks her work is done, she becomes a grandmother.

~~ Edward H. Dreschnack ~~


Edward said that well.

Remember the post I published when babyBold son moved into his own apartment? The one about how I stood in the middle of the floor crying my eyes out because my baby had left home? Remember how I snivelled on and on about what I would do with myself?

Well, those days were rather short-lived. I don't have to wonder what I will do next anymore. My days are happily filled: (not every day, just some of them)
  • 9:00 a.m. - Jace makes his entrance for the morning. We spend a good portion of the time cooing and conversing about different and odd subjects, laughing and playing and enjoying each other's company.
  • 10:00 - He's about ready to eat - - again. Then I rock him and burp him.
  • 10:15 - He's asleep.
  • 10:20 - Down for his nap.
  • 11:00 - He's stretching and grunting. I never imagined someone so small could stretch soooo...( I told him he gives me "charley-horses" just looking at him stretch like that.)
  • 11:02 - He's up and out of bed, ready to start the cycle all over again.

And so goes...

another day in the life of dellgirl, the brand new Grandma.

Hi, Leona!

Now you know what I was talking about when I went on and on about the joys of being a grandma. Isn't it heavenly?

Your little grandson is adorable! Your must be totally in love with him, just like I am with mine.

I'm so happy for you. Now we can compare notes and share stories, huh?

God bless you, dear heart.

Have a blessed weekend.
