The look on my grandson's face as he checks out his Toy Story cake, particularly Woody saluting him on his third birthday, warms my heart. He is such a joy, and I feel immensely blessed that God has brought him into our lives. I had given up hope of being a grandmother. I have two daughters, and my older daughter was told by doctors that she could not have children. My younger daughter was not interested in having children. And then a miracle happened, and on September 1, 2010, Samuel was born to my older daughter. On December 23, 2011, almost 16 months later, she gave birth to Jacob. So much for the doctors' predictions. God had a better plan for us.
This is Jacob taking a break from the festivities of Sam's birthday celebration to catch up on his reading. Jake is trying to keep up with his older brother. He is growing pretty quickly, and I'm amazed at how independent he can be at 20 months. But he's still a baby and loves to be held, especially when he's sleepy. Recently he has developed a fascination with books, and would sit and turn the pages. Hopefully he'll continue to enjoy reading as he grows up.
It is such a pleasure to be with my grandsons, and I'm so grateful that God, in his infinite mercy, allowed me the opportunity to feel such joy. Thank you for allowing me to introduce you to two awesome little guys, and to share my joy of being a grandma.
