A visit with Kennedy

Dear Lance,

I was finally able to drive to Las Vegas and visit Kennedy!  What a whirlwind of a trip!  I wanted to leave on Friday but ended up leaving Saturday getting to Vegas about 3:00 then leaving on Sunday about 3:00 - 24 hours of Kennedy is better than no hours!

I had so much fun, he cracks me up, he was all into a show he had seen at the aquarium with pirates and mermaids,  so I made up a song with him, remember "a pirates life for me"  and he and I would get our arms going back and forth and sing - he loves to sing!  Then we went to Walmart, of course, and found a monkey scene set for the bathroom he uses.  Found some toys too!  Then to McDonald's for ice cream cones. 

I gave Kennedy a bath in his "new" bathroom and  Will found a pirate book at Walmart for before bed reading and we all sat on the floor in his bedroom and read the book.  

I love that I can concentrate on just Kennedy - turn the world off and be a Grandma - Roll on the floor, sing funny songs, kiss and hug all over him...Nothing beats that kids smile and big brown eyes!

He is so smart!   Jennifer sent me a text with a little story of Kennedy - she fed him lunch and went to do something upstairs, when she came back his plate was gone, and she asked "did you finish your lunch"?  and he said "yes"  Latter that day when she was cleaning the kitchen she found his lunch at the bottom of the trash can!  Not only smart enough to put in trash but to bring plate to the sink!!!

March 1st, 2012

Dear Son,  I can't believe it is March 1st already!  For me time is flying by and I know for you time creeps like a snail...We are visiting  Kennedy next weekend and I can hardly wait!  The art above is Kennedy's first art work - I am going to frame it!

I love when I first see Kennedy - he will run, and I mean run with arms wide - Grandma!  then he immediately starts looking around me for Will, aka Grandpa!  After hugging and kissing he will start looking for my purse or "goody bag"  which he knows I will have full if treats and toys just for him!  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me a Grandma, I love it!  I see you in him every time and it is sometimes so sad - to remember where we were at his age - although I do not dwell there, mostly I try to be present and accounted for and to let my child spirit free to play and love.

I will send a full report when I come back!  My visit with you is getting closer too!  Yippie
