Soaking It Up

Am I the only one that sees some similarities between babies and dogs?

I have often asked what Selby did before Adeline showed up? Nobody seems to know.

In a few days, our granddaughter will be ten months old and it seems that she embraces all that is new around her con mucho gusto. Like a Lab (my point of dog reference), everything she does is her absolute favorite thing to do while she’s doing it.

She lives in the moment.

 Transfixed,  she gazes out the window earlier today, watching a thunderstorm, (something the dogs definitely do not like to do!)

Like a good dog, a baby. . . at least “our” baby offers unconditional love, seeing everyone and everything as being perfect.

Taking her world in through her eyes

The disappointments will come soon enough.

Because of the “virus thing”  we have only seen Adeline “in person” twice since early March, (with distancing),  but are fortunate in that Elissa facetimes us 1-2 times a day, so we still get to see her little personality developing.

Learning that mac ‘n cheese is one of life’s joys.

A baby joyfully soaks up their surroundings like a sponge.

As the sponge swells, the joy pours out and  is shared with those nearby.

It is a joy like I have never known

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

    Grand-kids are awesome! Thank you for sharing. The worst part about this virus is not being able to see our family and friends. Thank goodness for Face Time and Zoom! 🙂
