Having only had one child (a girl),and then having 1 grandchild (a girl), I always wondered if you could love a second child as much as the first. And then…knowing that the baby was going to be a boy…well, that really threw me for a loop. What would I do with a boy? I only know girls! Well, along came Mr. Mason to show me that my worries were completely unfounded. He completely grabbed my heart strings and never let them go. He is the sweetest, easiest , mellowest (is that a word?) baby ever born. (Hmm, sounds like a proud Grammy, huh?). I don’t think he had a fussy spell (for no reason) the entire 2 weeks I was helping out. I didn’t get many good pictures of him because I had my camera on the wrong setting but here are a few. I’ll take you on a little trip that lasted 2 whole weeks.
He was a big baby when he was born and continued eating the whole time I was there. LOL.
Emma did really well with him. Only threw things at him a couple of times. Tee Hee.
He only cried once while being bathed. Check out Emma in the background. She was drinking water out of one of his bottles with…a straw!
I think Mommy has had enough of Emma’s help right here.
So, I told you that I was taking a shuttle from Bend to Portland. Here we are at a potty stop.
And then I took Amtrak from Portland to Seattle.
I like taking the train. It’s much more relaxing than a plane and the seats are bigger too. YaHoo.
The day after I arrived we took Emma for a haircut. Whenever her Mommy told her that Grammy was coming, she’d then say, “and then I can get a haircut?”.
The weather was absolutely perfect while I was there so we got to play outside. Not always something you can do in Seattle.
And all the while….Mason slept!
Remember the “tapes” (capes)? Well, I let Emma choose which one she wanted. She decided immediately that she wanted the lavender one. That meant that the glittery butterfly one was going to Kayden. Guess what? After Kayden got hers….Emma decided she wanted the glittery one after all. Hmm…what to do? NOTHING! We ignored her. LOL
She loved playing with Kayden’s dress up clothes tho.
And here’s Kayden wondering if those shoes are staying or going?
Another day we went to the beach near their house and Emma and her Daddy did their favorite thing…throw rocks.
And find the ickiest things in the sand. (cigarette butts and gawd knows what else).
The little princess teaching a class!
And eating her veggies!
So, all in all, I had a great visit. Obviously there are more pictures of Emma since she “does things”. LOL There’s no doubt in my mind now that my heart is big enough for 2 wonderful grandchildren…even a boy!
*A note to all of you who commented on my posts while I was away. I had some real issues with my e-mail and couldn’t reply. I finally figured it out when I got home, but I want you all to know that I read and appreciated all your wonderful comments and thoughts.*
