The little one took care of babies and plays puzzles. The curly-haired one doesn't totally get it, but she loves her cousin and tries to conform.
After they ate, I announced it was now naptime, and they grabbed their blankies and bottles and came with me to Tim's bed.
Mine pimento did not want to take a nap. She was up against me saying, "No, no, no," which I am not in favor of anybody saying no and being overpowered. I told her if she would just play along, once her cousin was asleep she could get up again.
She relaxed against my chest.
And fell asleep before her cousin did and slept longer, That little pimento was tired.
That's the end of today, which has moved on into tomorrow.
Nothing but love,

We tried to get that hair under control, but she was not a cooperator.
Plus, the one in the green shirt was fading. She started out strong, but in the afternoon, was sick and slept on the couch for hours.
OMG. This is a much awaited and beloved little baby.
See you Thursday, mine Pimento. Your wild-haired cousin and I will be waiting for you.

And driving through the Wisconsin countryside by myself is a weird thing because it brings my grandparents right to me close.
Memories of them, all four of them, washed over me for hours. In a way I enjoyed it, and it also made me miss them.
John was up at the lake on Saturday, turned on the water in his cabin and then had to deal with LEAKS. They were all taken care of by the end of the night.
Today we went for a walk to the dam and back to the field.
It was a lovely weekend, all in all.

So glad you're in this family--so glad you're you.
I love all your big ideas and chipper-chatter. I love your fuzzy hair and long curly eyelashes. I love your hugs and your laugh.
You're delightful in every way and always have been.
Happy Birthday, Buddy.
Love forever, Grandma and Grandpa and Everybody

John said it well, "Yeah, Grandma always has your back."
Glad he was astute enough to realize this.
This whole family is--just because of you.
You are incredible, your love a gift expanding exponentially.
Happy Birthday, Mom.
Love forever, Val and Everybody.
