It’s hard to believe this beautiful baby boy, sweet baby Carsyn Oliver, came crashing into our lives three months ago. Has it really only been three months?
With his arrival came an abundance of love for my first grandbaby. Having him live in my home, where I experience his daily changes and milestones has meant so much to me.It’s strange, until you become a grandma for the first time, you have absolutely no idea the emotions, or connection you feel with your grandchildren. This beautiful little man makes me feel so different from when I had my own children. I had that bond, I had that immediate love, but with Carsyn, it’s just different. He amazes me.I think it’s because it’s your child’s child. I think there is something deeply seeded in that knowledge. This is my babies, sweet baby. My mini, my youngest, this is her first child – a boy. Just like mine was.He makes me smile and laugh everyday. Momma see’s when Nana is stressed or upset and immediately brings Carsyn to me. She knows it will make everything better. And just having him in my arms or playing with him, can wipe away all the stress or worry I have.But besides chasing away my bad days, Carsyn is amazing. Those eyes – so soulful. That smile, from ear to ear. He is so smart. He loves to sing. Yes, sing. I will upload a video soon so you can see what I mean. He is trying so hard to pull himself up to sit. He is rolling from side to side, starting to reach for things. He watches the world so intently, taking it all in.He is literally my world these days. I cannot wait until I see his smiling face each morning. I cuddle him, I sniff him … because… yes… baby. He still smells so good. I make him smile, laugh and yep – even sometimes I make him cry but not on purpose. I promise.
Because who wants to see this very often? (the most expressive baby!!)
