DD Nora reminded me earlier this week that this time last year we were very busy preparing for a wedding (and, unbeknownst to us, the birth of our second grandson on the very same day!) This week and actually the last several have been much less frenetic. We have been keeping busy with various and sundry household chores such as defrosting the chest freezer, washing and storing winter coats, changing out winter clothes for summer clothes, planting things in the garden, etc. I don't have any completed projects or new recipes to share, so I thought I'd post a few fairly recent pictures of the grandchildren.
Ryan will be turning one early next week. He is not walking yet but manages to get around quite well by crawling or more often by walking on his hands and feet somewhat like a spider.
He can now hold his bottle and likes to do this even though we still hold him while he is drinking from it:
He loves to play under the kitchen table and will often take his toys there:
It appears that he is considering a future in the military since he spends a great deal of time on the obstacle course:
His latest obsession is with the ceiling fans and we often find him gazing up at them and waving his arm in a circle:
I don't have nearly as many pictures of the other two grandchildren since I don't see them as often. Megan gave me permission to post some photos from her blog.
Drew turned five earlier this month. He also had his first real sickness with a bout of the flu which lasted for over a week. He is much better now and loves his little sister. She doesn't look too comfy in this photo:
Little Maddie is six weeks old already and weighs over ten pounds. When Megan took the two children to the doctor last week the doctor said to Maddie, "You're a lot bigger than your brother." Drew replied, "No she's not!"
All three of them have been a great blessing to us and we thank the Lord for each of them and their parents who are seeking to raise them for Him.
