Who's Out There?

This is Mason's favorite spot now, watching and discovering the joys and delights of his own backyard. Sometimes he's eye to eye with the dog through this door, Mason will stand there chattering away and I just know that the dog is thinking "what possible good are you on the other side of this door until you're tall enough to reach the door knob and let me back in?" Mason can crawl like the wind now; walking, whenever that begins, will only slow him down! You can believe me when I tell you how hard it is to leave this little one behind every time I come back home from the Capital City, I always need just one more hug.

Life is Good!

He's right with Caroline mobilitywise. She crawls like lightening, but pulls up at the coffee table and walks around it. Hasn't ventured forth without support yet, but it is just a matter of time.....

I know exactly how you feel. It's so hard to leave my little David, and even more difficult now that he really knows us and is so interactive. My heart just melts when he waves bye-bye....I never want to go!!!

Not being a gma, I have little to go on here but I'll say that he's just too cuteamous and I think one more hug would make me feel wonderful. That's what I do think!

Your truly blessed. What a sweetie and picture reminds me of my own many years ago. You'll just have to make that trip often before he is all grown up!

He's growing so fast!! I'm sure that's evident everytime you see him...of course you would want to linger for one more hug! Who could blame you? He's so adorable!

Absolutely precious ~ this is a wonderful picture! Hugs are so needed by grandmas', cherish every hug that comes your way from this sweetness! And you are right the dog is probably thinking "let me in, you are at the door, reach up!" Sweet, sweet picture...one for the album!

Like the Mistress of Leehaven, I'm not a grandmother ~ but I remember both of our boys, especially our oldest, doing EXACTLY what Mason is doing in your precious photo.

On trash days, Eric could hear the truck long before any of us did and he would 'assume the position' at our front door and remain there long after the truck was gone. Like the yellow tonka trucks and earth movers (still in our attic), some memories never fade!

OH, How he makes me miss my own Great Grandson.....Soon!

OH! IF only they could stay little forever ... I want another one ... I mean g-kid! This wonderous world is so much fun to watch thru their eyes as they adventure forth ... you can see it 'all' on their little precious faces.
