Like Grandpa

Lately, I've been spending most of my time taking care of Little Man, and my mother. She spent yet another weekend night in the hospital getting a transfusion, but she is feeling pretty well at present.

Friday night Little man stayed all night with Nanna and Grandpa. I wouldn't say we got a good night's sleep, but we managed and it could have been much worse. LM did sleep all night, but wasn't really restful. He wriggled and squirmed and mewed and I wound up with him in the bed with me. I slept in little snatches, but got enough sleep to function the next day. (took a good nap that afternoon)

Sister #1 gave LM overalls at his baby shower. (He wasn't in attendance as he was still in Mommy's tummy) They finally fit now, and we got some good shots of him and Grandpa dressed alike today!

He was a very good boy today and we all three had a blast!


Pay no attention to the propane bottle behind us....

When my cousin saw the first photo, she sent me a poem she'd found that was very appropriate:

The Little Chap Who Follows Me!
Author: Unknown
A careful man I want to be;
A little fellow follows me.
I do not dare to go astray
For fear he'll go the self same way.

I cannot once escape his eyes,
Whate'er he sees me do, he tries.
Like me he says he's going to be;
The little chap who follows me.

He thinks that I'm so very fine,
Believes in every word of mine.
The base in me he must not see;
The little chap who follows me.

I must remember as I go
Through summer's sun and winter's snow,
I'm building for the years to be;
The little chap who follows me.
 Note to self:   That goes for Nanna as well.......
