Who knew how life would change when a grandchild came along. My friends who were already grandparents told me that it was hard to explain. They could not put it into words. I now know exactly what they mean. When Elizabeth and David had their child, Miss Gracie in Feb. of 2008, Pat and I of course became grandparents. An amazing thing happened...I felt more love than I had ever felt before...not only for Grace, but for my daughter. Pat and I were changed forever. Those of you who know Mr.Gruff Pat,well he has become the best, loving, hilarious, playful "Pop" in the world. He has to have a "Grace Report" everyday. He carries a picture of her with him at all times, and has not one, but two pictures collages of her in his office. Like I said...who knew?? Do we want to go on exotic vacations anymore, not really, we'd rather be in Arlington. And when we did go on our exotic vacation to Ecuador with Drew this past September, he told Elizabeth that all we did was talk about Grace!!
Grace will be turning 2 years old in about ten days...I can't believe time has gone so fast. She is the love of my life and I adore her every word, tantrum, eating binge and anything else she does. Am I hopelessly in love...YES I AM!! And the fun thing is, we're gonna get another one in August! Thank you Elizabeth and David.
Life just gets better and better....who knew??
