call me Granny!

It's normal, in the course of feeling like time flies, for the days to pass into years. Maybe it was even normal, when I had children, for the years to pass much faster. Before I knew it, my sons were out of college and married to wonderful young women. I went from young bride to new mom to mother-in-law in a blink. 

And now, I have such happy news to share: my oldest son and his wife just had a baby boy!

I am now a grandmother. And that is an exquisite new role I love and cherish.
I didn't expect to be completely captivated and head over heels in love with this perfect magical boy, my grandson. Aiden. I am putty in his little starfish shaped hands.

You can call me Granny now. No kidding!

'I am putty in his little starfish shaped hands.' What a beautiful, poetic line!

Congratulations K. 2011 will be the year that both of us became Grandparents, and just look at how young we still are! Now Peter is a different story all together!

Most grand-babies make happy fools out of their new grandparents. You'll say and do things parents never would. Make goofy faces, tell stories no one but you and Aiden will ever believe, give presents for no good reason but love.

Lucky Aiden. Lucky you.

I'm really liking your family sketches too. And the guacamole abstract.
