Nonnie Got to Rock A Baby!

Tonight was the first time we have seen our newest grandson since the day after his birth. He celebrated his two week old birthday today at 3:20 p.m. and is 5 lbs., 5 oz. He goes back to the doctor tomorrow for a check-up and to get his weight checked. I'm guessing he's at least back up to 5 lbs., 9 oz. This child eats like there is no tomorrow! He was so cute! And tiny. But he knows when it's time to eat! He was supposed to eat at 8:00 and about 7:45 he started rooting for supper. Couldn't help him out, so I re-positioned him and then he sucked on my cheek! Is that not adorable? Newborn Baby Slobber - is there anything sweeter?!?

I'm partial, but is this not the most precious child? He's an absolute doll. He is perfect from hair follicles to toenails. Of course, I said the same thing about his older brother when he was born. I remain convinced that babies are PERFECTION.
When I say that Nonnie got to rock a baby, that's what I always tell my grandson when it's naptime or bedtime if he's at our house, or even if he's feeling bad. I'll say, "Let Nonnie rock a baby." In a gushy baby voice. He loves it. He's 13 months old. What else is he gonna do but love it when Nonnie rocks a baby? I'm praying Liam loves to be rocked, too. He did tonight!

Here are a few pictures for you to fawn over enjoy. I can't help it! I'm one proud Nonnie! My bonus daughter, son-in-law, and grandsons are important to me....they are a gift from God and I am reminded of the blessing of having children in my life even though there is no living fruit of my womb.
Grandchildren are the crown of the aged...(Proverbs 17:6 ESV)
