It's been 2 months since our little munchkin
came into the world.
I can't believe it.
(And I've actually shed some tears over it this AM!)
I don't like how fast this time thing goes. It's a little depressing! What's worse though... is that we didn't get ONE family photo until last night! I guess I didn't really think about it until my aunt and uncle came over to visit last evening. They wanted a picture of the 3 of us... and I thought OH MY GOSH! We don't have any pictures of us! So... this is as good as it got on the spur of the moment!
Anyway... yesterday, I was able to take Eloise to see my grandma in the home. I was so thrilled that my grandma actually opened her eyes to see the baby! She even said her name... and "held" her for some pictures. I think it really wore her out though.. because soon she was off in sleepy land, snoring away! (Well, both my grandma and the baby were!)
It really meant a lot to me that my grandma was awake long enough to meet Eloise. Last time, she wouldn't open her eyes and it just made me really sad. Now Eloise will have pictures to remember my grandma by. It's amazing how fast my grandma's alzheimers has allowed her to decline physically (as well as mentally). It truly is a horrible disease.
On a lighter note... we spent time at my dad's auto body shop yesterday as well. My nephew, Xavier, was there and just absolutely adored Eloise. He was constantly wanting to hold her and fuss over her. It was very sweet. After lunch, my dad was showing X how to "paint like a body man"... and I snapped a couple of pictures.
Xavier masked off the parts he didn't wanted painted (as you can see the yellow tape on the wheels, etc)... and then sanded the parts he did want painted. Of course, he couldn't use Pop pop's paint gun... so a can of spray paint had to do... but it was still exciting to him!!
I'm not quite sure what that thing is called. It's some kind of digging/tractor contraption... but I know that X and his brother and sister are going to have a blast with it!!
Hope you're having a great Wednesday!
