Grandson Coming

 
 
 
 
Soon, very soon I will have a grandson.
This is something beyond my wildest imaginations.
Yet somewhere in my heart I decided to save the
crib my children slept in and the quilts that wrapped them.
Now this special crib is sitting in my home waiting for
visits from a grandson.
I found the sweet mobile recently at a baby store
and just knew this would have to be there to greet him.
The white basket underneath once held my grandson's mama.
The large embroidery I made long ago.
The small embroidery my mother made for me once upon a time.
The quilt with the pink trim my husband's grandmother made for our daughter.
The yellow quilt was made by my husband's mother.
Yes, it is a family affair in this corner of my world.
Thought you would enjoy seeing a little corner made just for my grandson.
A grandson that will be here soon.

I can't get over how beautiful this is Marilyn, did you ever think the time would come, when looking at your baby girl, that you'd be preparing for a grand baby? What insight to save all these awesome treasures, and who knows? One day they could be used for your great-grandchild!

How lovely, Marilyn. There are waves upon waves of emotion that I hadn't expected...I know you will enjoy spending time with your grandson. I am happy to know that I am not the only one who kept everything! What a very special room.

That will be one lucky little boy. What a beautiful space you have provided just for him. He will be a blessing to your heart...

So excited FOR and WITH you, Marilyn! (Absolutely love that crib, by the way.) To quote Melanie Wilkes in "Gone With the Wind," "The happiest days are when babies come." I agree. Looking forward to "meeting" your sweet grandson one day soon!

Rosemary said...

Absolutely A-Dor-A-Ble! Your excitement glows in the photos and through your words! I'm so happy for you, Marilyn! May your growing family be blessed with much happiness!

Oh, I have a feeling you will be having plenty of sleepovers at your house with this cutie once he pops --and mom can bear to part with him overnight!
