We celebrated our firstborn's 34th birthday yesterday as she and her husband awaited the sonogram of Baby Tran.
It's a Boy!!!
Our little EuEu will be a big brother in 4 months and my daughter will have 2 under 2....and she thinks she's tired now.
The 1400 mile distance that we now have between us is heart wrenching for Nana. I weep and she laughs at me.
God made her to be the Mama of rough and tumble little boys. She doesn't like drama. She doesn't like fuss and muss. She is a very low maintenance girl; capable and smart. She's such a good Mama.
Nearly every weekday morning we video chat during breakfast....that's the only time Eu is still now. Once he's down from his high chair, he's into a million things.
My plane ticket is purchased for the next trip North to babysit Graham. He called yesterday and his Mama and Daddy have taught him to say....I LOVE NANA!!! Oh my....I'm losing it...big time. He's still confused because he has 2 Grandpa's...boy am I glad I chose the name Nana...plus it's super easy to say at 12 months!
I find it amazing that God made our hearts to expand greater and greater. To love deeper and deeper. When we think we possibly can't love more...we do.
No one could ever of prepared me for this JOY!
I'm talking about the JOY of being a Nana!
It's an incredible feeling to have this tiny creature get so excited at seeing you. Filled with an unconditional love for someone they mostly just see on video chats. 1400 miles never seemed so far!
Thirteen months ago I would never of guessed this little guy would steal my heart like he has. I was blessed to go to Nana Camp last month and do my solo Nana hazing for 3 days!!! He's such a great baby, we did great!
We played bucket head! He's so entertained with anything and everything.
I arrived during the perfect storm....our daughter is expecting baby #2 in January, they bought a house and their condo was basically 99% packed with a move date 3 days after I left. So EuEu and I made due with playing with the fruit bowl, pots and pans and the colander!
He's very easily entertained....making a great first born. He's going to be a wonderful big brother!
I threw this tractor in my suitcase because every little boy needs a tractor.
If it fits it ships...FREE on Southwest!!! (BTW I made another new girlfriend on my latest flight! Jane lives in College Station! Just like my dad, I've never met a stranger!!!)
Graham came to see Nana for a few hours before they headed to the Ocean for vacation.
I didn't even get my suitcase unpacked before Graham's daddy asked if I'd come back and help with him in September while Nanny is on vacation.
Of course! Southwest LOVES us!!!
Nana is just getting tired of flying....I NEED a vacation that doesn't involve driving or a plane!!!
