{Savoring the moments}

My sweet grandgirl turned 6 months old on October 9th and I truly think she is growing too fast. It just seems like yesterday that our sweet Adalynn was born. 

 Of course I am reminded when I look at my oldest grandgirl who will be 13 in April that time waits on NO ONE
Here she is old enough now to be in our youth praise and worship band at church. REALLY? What happened to that little baby?


 But our babies do grow up and quickly. This sweet girl has brought so much joy to our family. We call her our JOY baby. 



If you look at her she will smile....



 Sleeps 11-12 hours a night. Cries if she gets hungry and that's about the only time she cries. 



 And she is at that stage that she grabs everything...earrings, ears, nose and whatever else she can grab. But do you know what my favorite thing is that she does? She'll put those little hands up to your face and looks at you as if to say, "I love you soooo much". 

YEP.....I truly am trying to savor the moments of this Circle of Life.



How many of you loved the Lion King movie? Oh I love that movie. Think I will listen to the song....The Circle of Life





Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. Cindy, I know you are proud of your granddaughter being a part of the youth and worship team at your church. I love seeing these young kids get involved and especially with things that are GOOD and MEANINGFUL. That baby has not lost any of her hair. WOW! Such a pretty little baby and her smile is adorable.

  3. What a precious little face! Babies are brand new little blessings that are gifts that keep on giving. Just like our children. When my hubby and I led a Young Adult group, all of our kids were in the worship band. Those were some of the best years of my life. Today, my little grandson is learning to play guitar and already is joining the worship team at church from time to time. You have beautiful grandchildren, Cindy! Enjoy your day.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    1. Awe thanks so much Sandi. Yes you are right. They are indeed blessings that keep on giving. Oh I know that you must be proud of your grandson learning to play the guitar. It is amazing how quickly these kids can learn. I have one learning to play guitar and one plays piano and sings. I am just so proud to have some musical talent in my family. LOL!

  11. Adalynn is beautiful! And, what a great sleeper she is. Our youngest grandboy loves Lion King. He asks Pappy to watch it a lot! Sorry I'm late to visit. Yesterday got away from me.

  13. Cindy your little one is so adorable, I almost want to reach across the screen and pinch her little cheeks. She reminds me so much of my youngest who looked a lot like little Adalynnn. It is such a rich rewarding life we live when we take the time to savor the moments and enjoy the cirle of life.

  30. Oh my goodness gracious, what an adorable little girl your Adalynn is! And I totally agree with you about how fleeting time is. My own grandbabies aren't so much babies any more. *sigh*! I was watching Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass this weekend and since "Time" is a main character, there were lots of time puns and sayings. Though it's not meant to be a deep, thought provoking movie, it did get me thinking about what a gift each second, minute and hour are!! Especially when there's family around!! Hugs to you!! :)
