Our growing-up grandsons!

Please.....pause for a moment....compose yourself....take a couple of deep breaths.

Therrre we go. Better?

I know that in coming here....if, indeed, you still do....and finding a current blog post must come as a complete shock to your system, so I wanted you to take it in slowly. :-)

Not that I have anything great to post about except....


Okay, okay, I know all of you grandmothers feel that way about your grandchildren, as well you should! Aren't they WONDERFUL!?!?!?!?!?! :-)

Next to my precious Lord Jesus and my amazing husband AND my dear son, I NEVER knew love like this before. *tears* I just never knew that I would love my grandchildren like this UNTIL I saw them.

As I said in a long-ago post, each time I see them is like the first time all over again!! And it is still true 3 1/2 years and 6 months later!!! :-)

Andddd, of course, you must know that I would have pictures!! Oh and let me give you fair warning: NEVER ask a grandparent if they have pictures unless you REALLY don't mind looking at grandchildren pictures!! :-)

Below, for your viewing pleasure, is Grandpa Ed and little Jaxon, who is now 6 months old and the happiest baby in the whole USA!! :-) He is the most pleasant little thing all of the time!! I've told Daniel and Erin countless times how blessed they have been with two good babies. But then, I know that alot of it has to do with their parenting.  And they are such good parents.   :-)

And this is little Jaxon and Grandpa, after Grandpa picked him up! :-)

This is handsome little Jaylon.  :-)  We had just come in from playing outside.  He had been riding his big wheel up and down the sidewalk and he suddenly stopped, came up onto the porch where I was sitting and said, "Grandma, it is too sweaty out here.  Let's go inside."  I didn't argue one bit!  So I took him inside and washed him off with a cool cloth and he climbed up on the back of the sofa (he was tired and ready for a nap) when I took this picture.  Hasn't he grown?  Andddd, did you notice I said he called me "GRANDMA"?!?!?!?!?!  Yes, he does!!!  No more "Beh" or Beh-beh".  Thank you, Jesus!!!   :-)

And this is Jaylon playing with his new tractor and truck that Grandma brought to his house for him.  :-)  That is macaroni that he is loading up!!  I thought of that one day when he was at our house and Daniel and Erin thought it was a wonderful idea, too!!  :-)  When he opened the bag and saw his new tractor and truck, his little eyes got great big and he said, "Wowww....thank you, Grandma, thank you....wowww."  :-)  (Like he never gets anything....mmhmm...right. LOL)

We had begun to wonder if Jaylon was ever going to start talking but he surely did, shortly after his 3rd birthday!!  And I never tire of hearing him talk!!  He pronounces everything very precisely and I can hardly believe some of the things that he says but a dear friend told me that all the while we were wondering if and when he was going to start talking, Jaylon was listening and storing everything we were saying.  It has to be so true!!  :-)

Well, I've gone on  long enough about my boys, so I will close this post for now, buy I plan to blog more regularly.  I almost feel myself being called back to my blog.  I truly miss putting all of my memories down somewhere permanently and that is what my blog has been about all along and now that I am OFFICIALLY RETIRED (Ed says he's "REAL TIRED" LOL) I plan to get back to storing memories again!!

Your grandsons are adorable, you proud grandma, you. I am retired too, and it is way good, I highly recommend it.

It was good to see you pop up in my Google Reader again! Grandkids look like such fun -- I can't wait to have my own some day! No idea when that will be, but hopefully some day!

Hi, Jewel! It's so good to see a new post. I can barely believe how much the boys have grown! Sir and I really need to make a trip down to visit you and your hubby, but I think we will wait for cooler weather since we don't have working a/c in the car. ((HUGS))

Glad to have you back and Happy Retirement! The boys are very cute! My son (now 19) didn't talk until almost 3 years old and from then on you couldn't shut him up! :) He wants to be a write/History professor - right up his alley. Hope to see you around again soon!
