There is a new project that is even more precious than my fiber pursuits! We are watching Will for a few days while his parents are in Hawaii for a trip; Matthew earned the trip because of his top sales at Sherwin Williams! Grandpa fed him his bottle this morning and serenaded him to sleep!
Will and I take stroller rides-he is chewing on the scarf I made and was going to wear to church today. Someone liked it better.....so I gave it to him; a logical grandma choice!
We borrowed the stroller (it helps to have young friends willing to share!) and this exer-saucer so Will would have some entertainment and so I could have 10 mins to catch up while he did so! It is working out great on both counts!
We enjoy a tons of conversations; he is very talkative. He is enjoying the feel and lightness of this woolen shawl and I explain what kind of animal it is from. We both smile a lot! He is also mimicking noises and we have a lot of non-verbal male communication, too; I raised 3 boys and I remember how this is important to them!
On our walks we saw 6 Sand hill cranes in our yard-we have never had this many at peace-usually more than one couple is a fight in the making but these remained social all afternoon!
Flowers in bloom in the pool area are also of interest . The day lilies are show stoppers!
The ground orchid is in full bloom-this is one of 8 groups of flowers out right now.
Will and I enjoyed a swim-the pool water is warm enough not to be a jolt for him-he enjoyed the time to splash with no interruptions from me like for bath time!
A less welcome find on our walk-a Coral Snake which was very dead and snatched by one of our vultures by the end of the day-gratefully!
