We went over to Jodi’s for a couple hours last night so we could lift that heavy baby up and down for her till her husband came home. Actually most of the lifting was left up to Bill because I strained my lower back from mowing and trimming yesterday. She’s a cute little thing and very serious, she has to warm up to you before she will smile at you unlike my Ethan that grins and laughs all the time, these photo’s were from the March visit I don’t have any newer ones yet.
Of course when Ethan’s daddy was sick he had so many people handling him that he got socialized very young unlike Natalie who hasn’t been around that many people. I can’t wait to see Ethan in August. My DIL is bringing him up for his 1st birthday. He’ll probably be walking by then and jabbering away. They called the day after Mother’s Day and I know it was just as hard for her as it was for me. I have the recording of Ethan laughing which does much to lighten my heart I’m so grateful he’s in our life.
You know I try not to have any favorites between Bill’s grandchildren, but I can’t help that I’m partial to Nate he’s the one in the middle. Nate just seems like mine and he’s always been special, Nate is Natalie’s older brother of course. I never thought I would actually have a biological grandbaby so Nate filled that spot. Eric lost 4 babies through the years with a couple different partners and then they had Ethan at the same time Eric found out he had the cancer and was being treated.
I will always be grateful I was there and almost got to see the little guy born, but it was too much for her so they had to do a cesarean and I was so happy to be a Nana. It was very special and Eric was so proud and happy that his Mom was there and had driven all the way from PA to Kentucky by herself. Eric and I were very close up until he was 21 and then he didn’t need his Mom anymore. I really missed when he stopped calling me mama and switched to Mom when he got older.
I really don’t understand why Entrecard bloggers still continue to buy ads on blogs that are showing the EC paid ads on their widget knowing they are only going to receive half of the impressions. Like this blog for instance it’s just not fair to you guys so please stop wasting your credits here until I make a choice to stop helping them, it makes me feel guilty so please spend your credits on those blogs that only show regular ads full time.
