Olivia and her Pawpaw

My dad came to visit us last weekend and see Olivia again! He hadn't seen her since she was two weeks old (still hovering right around her birth weight of 1lb 5oz). My, how she's changed! I was so beyond excited to reintroduce him to his first grandchild! He was absolutely smitten with her. When he was holding her he said to me, "Wouldn't mom just have a fit over her?" I thought, yes, yes she would. I often get sad that Olivia will never get the chance to know my mom, and that my mom won't ever know my babies. But, as a friend recently pointed out, my mom does know my babies. She knows Madelyn, Catherine and Mary Grace. It's such a comforting thought.

Olivia,
You have such a special Pawpaw! He thinks you are pretty special, too! Seeing him hold you and talk to you was so fun for me. You were so content and happy to be with him. At one point you smiled one of the sweetest smiles I've ever seen. Daddy said you could even see the smile in your eyes! I can't wait to watch the special relationship you'll have with your Pawpaw grow over the years ahead. You are so very loved, sweet girl!
Love,
Mommy

















Thank you for coming to see us, Pawpaw!!!

Oh this is so sweet, I love it when you open a blog and it makes you get teary eyed for a happy reason not a sad. Keep growing little Olivia...
