Just spent the morning with my granddaughter
« on: March 02, 2011, 10:25:18 AM »
She's growing like a weed and getting a biggggg personality!  We had so much fun with her.  She's turning and twisting and discovering her fingers and today found her nose and stuck one of her fingers in it!  No telling what will be next. 

Grandson will be 8 on March 6th.  Sent him a card with money and a savings bond!

That's great FAFE.  I love when they are starting to find their body parts!

I am always in awe when they stick their foot in their mouth. (I do it all the time but no one is in awe! ;D ;D ;D)

Luise, I often have that problem.  She has not discovered her toes yet.  I'm waiting for that next.

I wish I had a picture of me doing that as a baby when it was cute and socially acceptable! ;D ;D ;D

Laurie, she'll be 5 months old March 14th.  She's almost sitting up by herself!  Jabbering away and kicking at anything that gets in her way.

Yes it is so delightful to see our grandkids.   My 45 day old granddaughter is a sweetie pie.  Dont know why she is sleeping most of the time.  I dont remember my other two gk always sleeping.  The other day her older sister (just 3) asked me "Nana, why doesnt my little sister want to see me, she doesnt want to open her eyes when I am talking to her".   Arent little kids innocent?   

I love having my three gks home, but I dont know when I am happier, when they arrive or when they leave.  Love them with all my heart..but Gosh there are a hand-full.  The oldest (boy 4) wants to be playing baseball all the time and he cries if I tell him that the game is over because Nana is already tired.  A high maintenance kid. 

Good luck

FAFE,  I just LOVE it when they are at that age, when they find their nose, toes and fingers and start blowing raspberries as well...I am Happy for you, all the best!!! :)

Hi NaNa~~~I am also thrilled you are having fun with your little ones.....My YS was also a sleeper, he slept thru the night the day I brought him home from the hospital.  A very content little baby..I also was worried with him sleeping so much especially since OS was a baby whom never slept.  When I took YS in for his 6 week check up, I told my peditrician "I am so worried he sleeps all the time~~is something wrong with him?"  The Dr. smiled and laughed and said "all babies are different."~~Don't worry enjoy it!!!  and so I did...

Blessings to all...Faith

Oh dear, we had her for a couple of hours today and she WAS NOT HAPPY!  Told daughter she needed some gas drops!  Usually she loves my husbands voice and just looks at him in awe!  Maybe when I see her Monday she'll like us again.

I think it is called Mylacon drops or something like that.  Could not spell it, so just said gas drops!  She was very gassy and that is what her dr had prescribed for it.

Laurie, did your kids ever have colic?  You know...the fancy name for gas?  They now make pediatric drops for it...where were those years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!
