Babies are FUN...for grandparents

I just got home this afternoon from spending a week with my new grandson...ok, also with his parents and other siblings, but mostly with the little guy!! He is too cute, and has gained about 10 oz since his birth. Way to go, Mom! He does have this rather regretable habit of waking his parents every 2 hours or so. I don't know this for sure, as the Inn was full and I was spending the nights with longtime friends, this could just be a vicious rumor! (Although Mom and Dad are looking a little ragged around the eyes these days!)

It was a great time for me to get to wrangle the little fellow while Mom recuperates from a C-section. I got to dazzle everyone with my amazing casserole cooking. I'm telling you, 21 years of teaching will get you LOTS of casseroles. I am grateful that my hubby and my kids were good about eating them, and the leftovers.

Grandy and Sweet Pea were happy to have me home. It is so nice to be missed.

Nana's Newest Sweetheart

I have had my heart stolen once again by a little bundle. My second grandson entered the world this morning in Lawton, OK. He weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces and was 20 and 3/4 inches long. Compared to his dad and uncles, he was a little small to me(dad weighed 9 pounds, 7 ounces and was 22 and 1/2 inches, uncles were 8 pounds, 21 inches and 9 pounds, 10 ounces and 19 inches) but oh my he is darling! He has some really sweet looking cheeks and curly blondish/reddish hair and a dimple in his chin! Is it any wonder I'm smitten?

I'm returning on Sunday to take my turn helping out...can't wait! I'm sure I'll be posting more about the little guy.
