Why Grandma Smiles and Needs Hair Color

Happy Friday, y'all! It's been a whirlwind week around here. Baby M's mommy and daddy bought a house and this is moving week. The movers come tomorrow but they've been busy in between Baby M and their full-time jobs taking boxes over and getting things like the kitchen and the aquariums set up.

How do you get out, I mean, how do you help your daughter's family move into their first home? You offer to take care of the baby. 😀

I haven't included the pictures of why my hair is graying quickly these days. Those would be the pictures of Baby M climbing on all things unstable. But I don't have those pictures becasue I am in catcher mode and can't catch the baby and snap a photo at the same time. I'm good, but not that good. Ha!

Here's a peek into my week:

It's always difficult to get the pants back on the baby. So, I do what I can. Technically, the pants are ON the baby.2 

Baby M is still pulling up on EVERYTHING and letting go because she forgets SHE CAN'T WALK YET.

Which doesn't slow her down one bit. And yes, she thinks it's funny. 

Just in case y'all thought she was always smiling...

She only does this when she's fighting a nap (and she wins the award for fighting naps) or Grandma is moving too slow.

Most of the time she's like this as she really is a happy baby.

There's a reason Grandma wears old clothes and her hair up when Baby M is here.

She's working hard on that pincer grasp. 

Even with a spoon in her hand. 

Sippy cups are brilliant these days. Remember how the water or juice went everywhere when our kids were little? Well, no more! When it hits the floor, the water stays in the cup. I love it!

Teething biscuits have changed, too. And they claim, right on the box, NO MESS. They lie. We still had a mess. Though not as bad as the Zwieback toast of old. 

Sippy cups and Puffs. A magical combo. 

The reason for Grandma's smile, her gray hair, and her heart full of joy.
