Three Years Ago Today

Three years ago today, I became a Gramma for the second time when Morgan Clover Jackson was born. For me, when babies are born, that magical day just freezes time. Nothing else in the entire world matters more than the new gift of a grandchild. Morgan, pictured above, is a Daddy's girl as you can already tell only minutes after she was born grabbing his finger. Seeing your son in his new role in life, well there are just no words for it. The moment was so special.

And for me, to hold that bundle of love and joy for the first time is also magical. I always thought having kids was the best thing ever, but I have to say, having grand babies is high on my list as well!

Riley meets her brand new cousin for the first time as Aunt Brande holds baby Morgan so Riley can get acquainted. 

And then the moment came when Riley got to hold her cousin. This picture is one of my very favorites. Look at the little smile on Riley's face.

And today, my little girl Morgan is three years old, in the blink of an eye! 

There is a definite bond between Morgan and Riley, an unspoken love, and unspoken love.

Then there is my little boy Bodhi! His favorite pastime is torturing the girls and playing innocent as you can see in the picture above. Bryce did the exact same thing to his sister over the years. Actually, he still does! I'm not sure what Bodhi did to Morgan, but obviously she wasn't happy! And just think Bodhi, at the end of July Morgan gets a new baby sister, and you get a new little girl to tease and torture.  Happy Birthday Morgan! We will celebrate the big THREE tonight at my house. . .

Time has it's way of sneaking up and past us doesn't it?
I think being a grandmother is our reward for raising our own children. We get to spoil the heck outta them...then send them home to their parents to straighten out. LOL...just kidding! A lot of responsibility comes with being a G-mom...starting with making memories. Can I just say you're doing an excellent job of that!?!
Happy birthday Morgan. In case you didn't know it by now...your grandmother adores you.
