Grandma.... and Georgie
I haven't posted in a while. It's been a little hard losing my Grandma. It's funny, I haven't been terribly upset about it- I haven't even cried! but I think I've been putting off posting about it, because it will make it seem very real. But I've decided to talk about it now.
On Saturday the 30th of October at 3am, Grandma passed away. She has had a few different types of cancer on and off since 1997- and has done very well for her age. But her body finally gave out. Grandma always had a lot of faith, and one of the last things she said to me on the Friday before she died was "I'm waiting for God to wake me up." She was so ready to go, and knew exactly where she was going- so it only hurt a little.
She loved you Georgie, when your Dad and I first bought a house, we bought the house next to her, and we used to go over there all the time. Your Dad used to mow her lawn. She got sicker right after you were just born, and she wasn't really up to much, but she always loved seeing you, we used to visit her every afternoon. Now it's a bit hard not having here next door. But I know we will see her in heaven.
In other news, Georgie- you are getting so big! You are 4 months and 3 weeks old now! I can't believe that I'm counting how old you are in months- it's insane! So I thought I'd post a few photos to show what you have been up to.
This is what you looked like in the car when we first brought you home from the hospital.
and this is you in your car seat now- I can't believe how much you've grown! (Plus I love how it looks like you have a little halo :)
You've been making friends with Chloe. You watch her all the time and are just so interested in her! She isn't quite so sure about you yet....
You love having a bath! You laugh and smile and kick and splash- it's so much fun to watch you!
You have discovered toys and EVERYTHING is in your mouth! I think that this may also be related to teeth though- they have already started to bother you, we've had lot of temperatures and grizzling in these past couple of weeks- but you're doing okay!
You've also discovered your thumb!
We've been trying little bits of fruit, and after I gave you a piece of melon to suck on and you almost inhaled it because Mummy was too busy talking (I know!) I decided to get one of these nifty things! They're great! You pop the fruit in the little bag and then there's no choking hazard!
In the photo it kinda looks like I'm just shoving the thing down your neck, but really you were having your first taste of mango and you were going to town on that little mesh bag!
You are so lovely. Your smile brightens up every day- and you are adorable (even if you don't have hair yet!)
