OK - so maybe I'm a little biased ~ but aren't these two just the cutest little guys?!?!?!? Tristan (the blue jean baby) is my adorable nephew. Then there is Braden sitting next to him. Braden is my grandson (the light of my life.) I was truly blessed this winter to have these two precious boys brought into my life within 6 weeks of each other. Braden was born Dec. 5th and Tristan followed on Jan. 21st.
Doesn't that smile just make you melt?!?!?!? And, believe it or not, he's like that from the time he wakes up until the time he falls asleep. You can't help but smile back at him. I have turned him into a Grandma's boy, too.
I have always heard how being a Grandparent is so special - but those feelings just can't be put into words. Jeff and I just beam the moment he is brought into the room.
I was sitting here today thinking about this. Growing up I was my Granddad's pride and joy. And the feeling was very mutual. He meant the world to me. I loved him so much. I remember being 18 years old and still seeing my Granddad's eyes light up when I showed up. Now I think I know what he felt because that I how I feel every time I see Braden. My heart just swells. I am so thankful for the relationship I had with my Granddad ~ and am even more thankful to be able to pass that kind of relationship on with my Grandson.
