One Perfect Day & Then Another

This is the way Hank reacted when we said we wanted to take his picture!! How perfect!!!

Hank turned 19 months old on the 17th, and, as I was not working Wed, Thurs, & Fri, I got to go & get him Wed am and keep him til tomorrow evening (Fri).

I cannot tell you how this has made an impact on my life! Hank is my first grandchild, and I am totally, head-over-heels in love with him--but then, you know that if you read my blog! It's like the fog has lifted & I now understand what it is to love unconditionally. I thought I had this with my own children, but Hank has brought about such a different kind of love. I can't bear it when he wrinkles up his face & begins to cry--my heart feels as if it is being ripped out! When he smiles & laughs, I am complete--the happiest person on the face of the earth.

He is now beginning to communicate with the world, and it's so touching looking at things through the eyes of a 19 month old. He loves stars, flags, and pumpkins. We only brought 4 pumpkins home from the patch--and the porch is already full! He loves to play & laugh. He loves trucks--now I do too. And he loves me--this is the first love I have felt so intensly--at least in this manner. I just don't have words. . . . .

Tomorrow is the last day of his vacation with me, and already I am saddened. I want to be with him every day of every week of every month. I just haven't been able to thank God enough for sending me this bit of heaven!
