I love being Grammy.
|Our first official meeting|
Grammy & Henry
On this day, four years ago, at 6:58pm, Henry William VanDyke, was born. He didn't cry, he just looked around the room. His eyes were scanning everyone there. Then the nurse took him and got him to crying.
That was it for me, I knew my life was all about this 8lb 1oz boy. He had me wrapped and still does.
I have said this before, but I'm gonna say it again, I didn't know that you could love your grandkids just as much as you love your children. It's true. Henry opened my eyes and heart to this fact.
I cannot explain the love I have for my children or for my grandsons. It's a love that goes beyond reason. I need to be near them, hold them, see their faces, hear their voices. That is why it grieves me when Kelcie returns to college or when Jake was in Africa for a year. They are a part of me.
Today, I got to spend a couple of hours with Henry for his birthday dinner. His little arms around my neck, still melts my heart. He told me that he loves me the mostest ever...music to my ears.
After Juliana and Tori left with the boys and the house got quiet, I thought about how blessed I am in this life. For that, I am eternally Thankful.
Now, some Henry pictures.
