Well, here I am....wide awake at 4:29 AM. So I decided to drink some coffee because I'm sure that I'm not going to get back to sleep anyway. I believe it is due to the change in Daylight Savings Time plus the fact that I went to bed earlier than usual anyway to prepare for the awakening this morning of an overnight guest! My youngest grandchild.....the one year old!
He arrived around 6 PM yesterday. He was as excited to see me as I was to see him! It's a mutual "I think you're great" type of thing. He is in the beginning phase of walking now. It makes me chuckle to watch him toddle about and almost lose his balance and stop and concentrate for a second to regain control of his movements with a big grin on his adorable little face! I'm sure that if I fell that many times in a day, I would just stay down and not get up. Of course, the floor is much closer to his "bottom" than it is to mine.
It's a nice break for all of us to have him spend the night. Mom and Dad get a well deserved evening to themselves and Grandma and Grandpa get some quality time with him. So, I will sit here with my cup in hand and anticipate the awakening of that small cherished little boy so we can play together before his parents come to take him back.
