He's the little man that we adore!

I never knew that being a grandma would be so special!!

I just love watching that little guy grow and change and develop his own little personality.

I miss him so much and wish that I could see him more often.
But I have the best son and daughter-in-law that send me pictures all the time of him.

And we do video chat online so I can talk to him too. Technology is amazing.
Its not as good as being there in person but it is the next best thing.

I love to hear each new word that he is learning and watch him play with his cars and Buzz Lightyear. I love hearing the stories of everything he does and says.
It is the highlight of my week!!

I hope that by seeing us and hearing our voices it will keep us in his memory so he doesnt forget us. I think he knows who we are because his face lights up when he sees us.

I am loving this stage in my life. I look forward to more little special spirits coming into our family in the future so I can spoil them and just give them lots of hugs and kisses!

Being a grandparent is the most awesome role ever!!!!
Joe and I LOVE it!!!!!

Today I saw this poem and it expresses just how we feel about our "little buddy". So I thought that I would share it with you and some recent pictures of this special little man that we adore!!!

Grubby little fingers,
Dirty little face;
Racing through life at the speed of light,
There's no one could take his place.

Riding on a stick horse,
With a cowboy hat and a gun;
Accomplishing his mission in life,
To bring mischief, laughter and fun.

There's no one like a grandson,
To bring a grandparent joy;
Snips and snails and puppy dog tails,
All wrapped in a little boy.

A little bit of sunshine,
A blessing from the Lord;
He's got us right where he wants us,
He's the little man we adore.

He loves his helmet and wears it everywhere!!

That rock is almost as big as he is.
What a strong little dude!!

Can you see that someone decided to do a little decorating
while mommy was on the phone?
What a good little artist!!!

I didnt do it!!! Billy (the dog) did!!!!
Dont ya just love that little guilty face?

have grandchildren,
I'd have had them first." ~Lois Wyse
