No more Momma or Dadda, it’s now Mommy and Daddy. “Thank you Mommy” and “I love you Daddy” Though I love this change because it shows she is growing up and her language is developing amazingly, it also means she’s not a baby anymore. We have just a few more things left of her ‘babyhood’ and once they are gone, it’s going to hit me hard. I see pictures like this one and notice how grown up she looks, but I can also still see her as a baby in my mind. Any mother can probably agree with me, it does go by so fast, almost in the blink of an eye.
My mother has a Christmas tradition with her Grandchildren. Each year she buys them a personlized ornament with the year and their name on it. When they visit her during Christmastime, they put their new ornament on the tree. Here are this year’s pictures. My nephew’s Jonathan and Kristopher each put their ornament up, with a BIG smile and Holly got a little help from Nonnie.
We haven’t been able to get a picture of the three of them together in a long time. Holly doesn’t care to sit for pictures very often. I happened to notice them all sitting together and snapped some pictures. I think this came out great.
