Okay, I promise this isn't going to turn into a "LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY GRANDSON" blog.
He's so pretty!
No, REALLY. He is.
He is pretty and sweet and squishy.
This week has been great! Clark has taken Joshua to his Therapeutic Recreation and picked up for me...almost every day. It has been such a blessing, especially now that Rhodes is here. I have been able to go over to Holly's house first thing in the morning, after Aaron leaves for work, and I get to stay all day...until Aaron comes home.
On Wednesday, Holly was having her newborn pictures made. I decided that I would take Joshua to TR myself...a little later. We went over to Holly's, and stayed a couple of hours...so that she was able to do her hair, make-up, get dressed, etc.
When the photographer got there, we left. I took Joshua...and then came straight back to her house. The photographer was still there. They were in the process of trying to get a picture of Marley, the halfadog, with Rhodes.
Now, keep in mind that this dog has been Holly and Aaron-the-son-in-law's fur baby for 9 or 10 years. He has ruled the roost. Over the past month, his world has been turned upside down. First, Holly and Aaron moved to a new house...and then 2 weeks after that, they brought this THING into the house that cries and coughs and hiccups and makes funny noises...and sometimes it doesn't smell that great.
Since the THING has made it's appearance, Marley is not allowed on the bed, on the couch, in the backseat of the car. His sleep and "lounging" time has been completely disrupted. He is kept awake by it's crying at all hours of the day and night. He's not allowed to get too close to the it.
Well, on picture day, Holly told the photographer that she wanted a picture of Rhodes with his "puppy brother."
I arrived at the house during this whole process. They had Rhodie on the couch, on his tummy. He was not too happy, so they were trying to hold his pacifier in his mouth. The photographer said, "see if you can get Marley up on the couch (that he's not allowed on)...and put him behind the baby...and see if he will look down at him, or maybe sniff his head."
Marley acted like Rhodes had the plague or something. Holly would put him up there and position him...and Marley would lean wayyyyyyyyyyyyy away from Rhodes. It was hilarious and frustrating at the same time. Holly and I were both sweating like pigs. I am so anxious to see these pictures. I wonder if any of the ones she took of them turned out.
Logan and Morgan came home last night, and they spent the afternoon at Holly's house with Rhodes. They haven't seen him in nearly 2 weeks, so they are trying to get all of their snuggle time in while they're here!
Tonight, we had all 4 kids here...one son-in-law...one daughter-in-law...one grandboy...and two over-the-moon grandparents (Jim and I)....celebrating Rhodie's 2 week birthday. It was the best night.
