Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

Just because.....

He is, quite frankly as perfect as it is possible to be AND gramma gets to have him all to herself sometimes.

And somehow, this is one of my favourite pictures of him, those tiny little hanging legs, so tired after being pulled up with a tummy ache, blessed relief by lying on a cushion and hanging over the edge of the chair ( with daddy hovering to make sure he doesn't fall)

Daddy's big hands holding his tiny boy.

Endless kisses on that velvety head.

Blissful sleep.

And a picture to show how like his Uncle seth he is, Seth was 2 weeks and Joshua 12 days when these were taken, same pixie face.

I post these today because from now on, for a few posts it will pretty much be Boston, more Boston and even more Boston. Its almost here, the trip, the meetup, the fun and laughter.
Oh how excited am I?

Hmm, never knew that about a cushion and hanging legs. My first baby, Blade, was never ever sick save for an ear infection. Slept all night through, no problems. Second and third made up for that, tho, lol. The cushion and hanging legs would have been great for second.

Beautiful pictures, beautiful memories. :)

That baby is so delicious!! And it's so funny that you mentioned the velvety head, because as I was looking at old baby pictures of my 3, I was shocked at how much I miss feeling that baby velvet in my hands :)

Such sweet photos Helen. I would love to kiss that little one's soft hair.

I used to hold Amanda on my lap that way to relieve her tummy woes. :)
