Wonderful Morning Visit

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Helena and I were up and moving about 8 am this morning. Sherry fed her while I got my morning cup of coffee and breakfast in me. Then Sherry laid back down for awhile.

Helena was wide awake and moving! I pulled the bassinet into the living room and laid her down in it. We had a wonderful talk for about an hour. She stretched and kicked and punched and just listened to everything I said - well, at least she pretended to.

I am so glad I got a camcorder about 4 days before Helena was born. I keep it on the entertainment center. I turned it on and filmed her for about 5 minutes. I cherish this time that I spend with her.

We were just finishing up with her feeding when the mail carrier came to the door. Helena's passport came. I knew it was coming. I just had that Grandma hope that I could keep her and love her and protect her forever. It's a lot like the Momma feeling that I have for Sherry, but somehow a little more intense. Being older and trying to get wiser, I know all too well how quickly time passes. I want to hang onto this forever.
