After a daughter has a baby, I get the best of both worlds ~ my heart is filled to overflowing as I help my daughter. And also, I am overjoyed to spend time with my grandkids.
Today I headed into Omaha to pick up three year-old Cruz again for the day, giving Carrie a break to enjoy her newborn Eva in a quiet house. One cannot get enough of bonding with a newborn baby. And so sweet to catch the photos above of Cruz with his baby sister - they have truly bonded, as well.
Back at our house for the day, Cruz and I had a wonderful time together. The weather was perfect for jumping on the trampoline. Cruz had fun helping us put on a new trampoline pad that had just arrived the day before by UPS. And indoors, he was fascinated with play-doh, and also with a little painting project.
It gave me a lot of joy to give Carrie a quiet day with little Eva ~ and also in the morning and again, at the end of the day when I took Cruz back to his house, I enjoyed some sweet moments holding baby Eva, too. Wanting to treasure this time with our newborn grandbaby girl - such a sweetheart.
Being a mom, and being a grama ~ two of life's greatest blessings. Thanking God for His gifts ...
