Two and a half years ago my life completely changed on the day our first grand baby was born....Liam James. For the longest time I literally could not take my eyes off of him. He was mesmerising.
My son's son...amazing! He looks just like his dad and sometimes I look at him, watch his movements or see that sneaky little grin on his face and it's as though I am looking back at Kevin again.

I have been so fortunate to be a regular part of his life. We have Nonna day at least once a week. Now he is 2 and half. I've watched him learn to crawl, walk, talk and so much more!
It's those little special moments we share just between us that I will always cherish.
Some of our favorites are swimming, bubbles, walks, bike rides, playing guitar and singing his ABC's with his Papa, making cookies and snuggling after bath watching Super why!
Then there are the "firsts".The first time he said Nonna, my grandmother name. I was in the hospital, he and my son Kevin came to visit. I always saved the cookies for Liam from my meal. We sat in the bed eating cookies and watching the Cowboys..that's when he said Nonna! Last week as he was leaving, he gave me a hug and kiss and said I love you! Those were the two best firsts that melted my heart.
I love being a grandparent and feel this is not only a blessing and honor but a responsibility given to us to be a loving, nurturing part of his life. It is almost unexplainable the love you have for your grandchildren. In 4 months we get to do it again with our next grandson. More on him when we reach the letter O.
I thank God for my little buddy Liam!
