Okay, I am going to get a post up if it kills me! So hold on! :-)
I've had computer difficulties the last few days AND that does not sit well with me, SOOOO, on top of not being able to post, I cannot visit and read my blog friends' posts, therefore, I get behind on that AND my, but you all have been posting ALOT, which means I will probably NEVER get caught up reading back posts and commenting BECAUSE, remember, I have dial-up down in these hills and valleys.

Okay. I'm done whining.

Look who came to visit Sunday afternoon:

Okay, okay. I know. So what's so new about THAT?! I see him almost everyday of the week anyway.

Well, but you see, each time he comes over to Grandma's, it's like it's the first time all over again!
AND he just gets cuter and cuter and "adorabler and adorabler". :-) It's a grandma thing, I would say.

Jaylon doesn't talk too much yet. Oh, he CAN talk. He just chooses not to most of the time.
Some of the words he says are: cat, dog, Dada, Mama, Papa, cookie, thank you, hi, bye bye, book. Of course, he doesn't say them perfectly but you can tell what he is trying to say. :-)

BUT, occasionally, he'll come out with a word that just amazes us and we clap and laugh and all, only for him to go back into his verbal shell and not say anything again for awhile.

Like yesterday......I was changing his diaper and as I was doing so, I said, "Can you say diaper?" and he said diaper! I mean, almost perfectly! Two syllables!!! Wow!!

But the rest of the time he was here, he hardly said anything but his usual "nye, nye, nye, nye" when he wants something or needs something, which can get just a LITTLE irritating after a long day. :-)

Anywayyyy.....Daniel and Erin had brought him over Sunday afternoon for a visit and to show us and let him play with one of his new water toys. Heidi, their boxer, enjoyed it, too. :-)

Below is a picture of my clematis which FINALLY bloomed!!! I had noticed them in beautiful bloom in other peoples' gardens and yards and wondered if mine ever would.

Hafta go! You-know-who is here!!! :-) It's the boy!!! Have a great day!!!

'it's like the first time all over again'-I love that. It's true I'm sure!

Your clematis is so pretty. I love them and hope we can grow one here too.

Sorry for the computer woes....so frustrating!! Hopefully all is well now. Have a nice week!

I am sorry about the computer problems! I would be so lost in that department if my oldest son wasn't here. I dread the day he moves out -- beyond just that aspect, of course. :-)

When I get behind on reading blog posts, I just run through them lightly and hope my friends understand. I think everyone does -- we've all had those times. I don't comment on every post of every blog I read anyway, but when it's backed up I might just skim more and comment less.

Sounds like you are having way too much fun with that grandbaby! I'm so glad you are such an important part of his life, Jewel. You are creating memories that will never be forgotten! Have a wonderful day! =)

It is definitely a Grandma thing! I just can't get enough of Eden Jade! She amazes me. She will be four in July, and she already knows she needs to pick up her room and put toys away before going to bed! We will not be back down there until July, by then I will be walking the floor. lolol. Sorry about the puter problems! Have a great week!
until next time... nel

Nel said...

Oh I forgot... You're clematis is beautiful! Very pretty.
Just a reminder you have an award over by me.

until next time... nel

Jewel said...

Hi ladies!!! It's so good to hear from all of you! I was beginning to feel a little isolated! :-)
Joyce, it is a grandma thing but hopefully....one day...you'll be a grandma, once those beautiful girls of yours are out of college, married to the man of their dreams and all. :-) There are no words to describe it!
Hi Barbara...well, I am kind of on my own where my computer is concerned but thankfully, I have learned a thing or, a thing or...well, enough to keep it running, let's just say. :-)
Yes, Tracy, I'm thankful to be able to be such a big part of his life and especially instill the things of the Lord in his little heart. :-) It's so good to hear from you!
Hi Nel! thanks for the award. I'll be right over! And thanks for stopping by! I don't know what I would do if the kids would move away or anything like that. I wont' even think about it! :-)

Jewel said...

Oh, and Nel, I looove little Eden Jade's name! :-)

I was beginning to think that we were the last people in America with dial up & once we went to DSL, we joined the rest of America. Sorry I wasn't right.

I love my grandkids, but they can flat wear me out.

I've never grown a clematis. Yours is very pretty.

Jewel said...

Well, let me tell ya, Sir....at the end of the day, I am wiped out and tonight is no exception. I off to bed to die for 8 hours. :-)

Stephani said...

Your clematis is beautiful; I love flowers!

Love Jaylon and the dog with the water toy. I remember those days with my little ones in the sunshine. Too sweet.

BTW, love your blog background. Very pretty.
