Angel's Lullaby

Richard Marx says, "I was never alive, until the day I was blessed with you." -Angel's Lullaby

I thought I could never love anyone as much as my own children, but grandchildren put a whole new kind of love into your life! It is like watching your own children be little once again, and getting a "do over". I have more time and more patience. I think I was put on this earth to help with my grandchildren. They are a great blessing! Thank you God for these "gifts".

We have been friends together in sunshine and in shade.-Caroline Norton
Sometimes it is hard to give up old friends....friends who have been with us through thick and thin, in times of sorrow and times of joy, helping us get some much needed rest, a comfort in times of trouble. Celebrating with grandbaby, Braylyn, on day two of saying goodbye to her old pal, her pacifier.
We have had to tear the cushions off the couch and rip through the toybox to find one in times of crisis. There HAS to be at least 2 in the diaper bag, just in case one is misplaced. Grandpa Dave even went out on the 4 wheeler one day in search of one that she had dropped when they went out to check the pumpkin patch. Grandpa can't stand the meltdowns. I will have to say that her mom has kept her very fashionable....especially for church....matching her pacifier to her outfit!
We have quite a few pictures to remember this time....

It is time to say goodbye to this phase as we enter into another.....Braylyn is talking, walking, running, dancing, laughing, giving so much joy to those who love her.

Now we can see her beautiful face and smile that lights up the world.
You are precious, my little red haired girl. Love you forever!

I think that it is harder on me than it is on Raya. She has grown up so fast!

Hey Carol~love that you compared Brays pacifier as a dear old friend~So true! What a cutie :) I love Caleb's room. You are so talented! I just started my own blog: tillyzgirl. We will see where I go with it~not as creative as some, but I will give it a shot!

Good by Pacifer! Our two younger ones have blankets they're attached to. Thankfully a blanket is easier to find than a pacifier.

I love these new blog looks.
