Photo of the day, day 32 – Welcome to February!

For the past week, I have been staying with my daughter, her hubby, and this darling angel to help them out. They’ve started back to work, ending their maternity leave, and we all know how difficult a transition that is. I haven’t put any pictures of my grandson up on social media because I want to honor my daughter and son-in-law’s privacy. After all, they didn’t ask to be in the public eye. That’s my decision. But since you can’t see his beautiful face, my daughter thought this was a nice compromise.

This darling boy, just 4 months old, has had a bit of struggle so far. Low birth weight, plus he came into the world early, six different tongue ties making breastfeeding impossible, multiple allergies causing many gastric mishaps, even a bout with Covid. Despite it all, he is thriving and my heart is so full that sometimes when I look at him it wants to explode from joy. The minute I leave them to go home I cry. The entire way.

I never knew being a grandparent could be so deliciously wonderful.
