I just love this child!

People used to tell me how much I was going to love grandkids when they came around.I believed them, but it's one of those things you don't understand until it happens to you.  Now I get it!  I so enjoy spending time with Alaina and we all say we go into withdrawal if too much time goes by without seeing her.
We had her overnight again and that means you have to put up with more pictures from Grandma.  :-)


She's discovered climbing and our rocking chair.  She loves to rock and is pretty proud of herself as you can see by that grin.



She has an ongoing love affair with Oliver and he still tolerates her quite well.  She loves to pet and kiss him.   When she spots him, we hear "hi kiii".



Bob took this picture when we were all napping.  Alaina was settling down, when Oliver jumped up.  She had to put her hand out of the blanket so she could be touching him, then she fell asleep.  Bob put this on his facebook page with the title "Happiness is a warm, cuddly Grandma....   and a fuzzy kitty!"

What a precious photo of you three together. Alaina is a sweetie and I'm happy she and Oliver get along so well. Wishing you all a nice week.

What a darling granddaughter you have! I will have SIX grandkids in May...three boys, three girls. What joy! They are truly a gift from God. Enjoy the week ahead!

That last one is beyond precious! It's really great that Bob thought to take it---Mike doesn't do much with a camera. This one of you three is priceless.

Awww....she is especially sweet and cute! I can see why you are in love! I can't wait to be a grandma...I think it will be so much fun! Gotta few years on that one, though. ha.

That is just the best picture! I can't get Sammy to fall asleep in my arms anymore. He puts his head on a pillow on the sofa or floor and just falls asleep! My kids were never that easy.

It'll be a while before I have grandchildren. When it happens,I'm trusting and believing that I'll discover that new kind of love as you obviously have. I love the photos!

Brenda said...

Adorable! Love that last pic especially. The kitty figured out how to get this girl to sleep!

Karen said...

Oh, I love the last picture. How sweet that she has to be touching the kitty:) Funny, I was just talking to a friend that tells me she counts the days until she can see her grandbaby again:)
