I know I just "showed off" some grandbaby pics yesterday but the cute little red head is two today. I can't believe this sweet boy has been in our lives for two years. When he visits me, and looks at me with those big ~ very dark ~ brown eyes, it makes my heart melt.
When he visited for Christmas this year he headed straight for the plastic tree. He saw the sparkly ornaments that said JOY & NOEL and immediately started spelling the words. He also loves to count ~ there were at least 20 plastic balls on the tree this year and he counted them at least 20 times. He loves his letters and he loves to count. I tell ya ~ this little guy is brilliant! And I'm not prejudiced at all either!
"You will always be the ONE, who took my heart by surprise.
Loving so completely, you're perfection in my eyes.
Dreams of you and me, would fill me with delight.
But nothing could compare to the first time I held you tight..."
The first "little" branch on our family tree
I wonder if someday he'll look lovingly up at me as we have this discussion?
"Gramma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo while I asked, "No, how are we alike?" "You're both old," he replied."
I Love You Elijah!
