Visits from Grandparents

Since Zedekiah was almost 2 weeks early, it seemed like forever before my mom came to help. It was great having her around. The number of adults equaled the number of kids for a week… now we’re outnumbered but we’re getting used to it.

After my mom’s visit we had another couple of weeks before Zach’s parents came out. I’m a total lamer and didn’t take any pictures of the with Zed. So there isn’t any photographic evidence of their visit. But there is still proof that they came!
We had scheduled Zed’s father’s blessing for his parents’ visit and I had been knitting a vest for the babe to wear. When Zach’s mom saw it she quickly decided that he needed a pair of pants. She knitted these up in a day and a half. Unbelievable.
I took these photos a few days after they left. Don’t you just love Zedekiah’s quiet smile? He really began smiling the day of his blessing (the 17th). After the blessing we had our neighbors and friends come and visit. Kind of a welcome party for Zedekiah, but very low key with folks in and out throughout the afternoon. It was very nice.

  1. Oh my word, Stacie, he is just awesome. It’s a perfect description, his “quiet smile.” He looks so very wise and old-soulish, somehow. I think perhaps you and Zach might need to be forbidden to reproduce again, though, since your offspring is so stinkin’ good looking…it’s bad for the rest of us. 😉 Hope y’all are well.

  2. I also didn’t get any pictures during the visit. I guess I was busy knitting, holding our precious grandson, and being in your kitchen! I think I need prints of Zed in his blessing outfit. . . I really miss him and all of you!

  3. He really looks like Zach to me ~ he is super sweet. Hopefully we can see him this summer.

  4. Look at what a character he is! Of course I thought Gretchen had a “quiet smile” when she was that age. She got older. It got louder.
