My Grandad, (my mom's father), met us there and the five of us were able to capture the special moments on the camera.
|Great Grandma Ruth was so sweet and talked to Caroline the entire time she held her. I heard her say at one point, "Where did you get all of your pretty, dark hair?"|
And then I melted.
|Mrs. Pat, one of the residents who is also a dear friend of our family's, came out to meet Miss Caroline, too. Despite her hollering in this photo, Caroline was quite fond of Pat : )|
|Great Grandma was looking at Caroline in every single photo, which made made my heart so happy.|
It was a day I'll never forget.
P.S.-The baby had an absolute meltdown at the end of our visit, so I had to go out to the car to nurse and soothe her. Let me tell y'all, it was the most ungraceful feeding session to-date AND I do believe I inadvertently flashed two of the residents that were sitting on the back deck.
Mommyhood, folks. It's not glamourous, but man, is it ever rewarding.
Tuesday night, we had dinner with Grandma and Grandad. My cousin Mary also brought out her sweet little boy, Kyle. He is about seven months older than Caroline and SUCH a handsome little man.
|Someone asked me if massive amounts of hair run in our family, since Caroline has enough for five babies. I think Kyle's thick head of hair confirms it, ha!|
|She LOVED my Grandad - her Great Grandad.|
|I dare you not to try to reach through your screen and pinch his cheeks. Triple dog dare you.|
|Before her meltdown...|
|...and after. In case you're wondering, it was as loud as it looks : )|
And the weekend ended with the following very sleepy, yet content little lady.
