Grandsweetie Update

It occurred to me the other day that it has been a while since I have posted any kind of picture of my little grandsweeties. So when they were here on Sunday I got them to stop a minute to take a picture with me. I can't believe how grown up they are. They are both talking a mile a minute - the only difference is their volume. Tyler is LOUD and Ava is quiet. They both are the sweetest little children imaginable. We just love them so much.

Our third little grandchild, Aiden Ryan, isn't scheduled to come until September 1 but the doctor said today that she expects him to make an appearance in the next couple of weeks. His mama seems to lean towards 8 month pregnancies. That means I have to finish knitting his blankets and finish up some sewing. Yikes!! Tyler had so many baby things, his little brother didn't really need anything. But every baby deserves something new I think. So I am knitting two blankets and making some receiving blankets for him out of super soft flannel. I can't wait to meet him. I am curious to see how having a new baby will change the dynamics we have going. Ahhhh. . . . a new, sweet little infant. What a blessing!

Oh, Robin. They are so sweet. Will you just look at the darlin' belly on Ava Claire. I wish mine was considered cute like hers.

I can't believe your new one will be coming in a few short weeks. Seems like you just announced his existence. That WILL change things.

Ava is ready. She is already mothering that dolly. I'm sure she is gonna love being a new cousin.

I am quite sure it's going to change the dynamics big time! It's amazing what one little being does to ever aspect of life! I've discovered that just having one of the 4 gone (like at camp), makes things so much easier - amazing!

Congrats on your weight loss journey - keep me posted! What plan are you using? It's hard, but so amazing. I have to say I don't even miss sugar - when I try a bit, it doesn't even feel good any more. Strange after being a chocoholic all these years!

Kev graduates tomorrow night and comes home for a week on Saturday night!

PS - the twins are finally talking - not totally proficient yet, as in holding conversations, but they're coming! Especially Emma. So fun.
