Taylor, our youngest granddaughter, recently came to visit. She was accompanied by her mom and dad. She turned four months old while she was here. Hard to believe she is already that old.
Thanks to our neighbors (who are expecting another little one) we had anything and everything we could need for Taylor. We had a car seat, a high chair, a pack and play, a stroller, etc. All of it was a lot fancier than when our kids were young. I even had to go to the fire department to figure out how to install the car seat.
While Taylor was here we took her on her first picnic. We were taking our friend Millie to Este Park for a conference she was to attend and stopped on the way to have a picnic lunch. The wind was blowing but Taylor was a trooper and as you can tell from the picture she either wanted me to hold her or she wanted my sandwich.
We also had a pool party for Taylor in the backyard. The look on her face says it all, “Save me Grandpa! Save me!”
Taylor and I also spent I lot of time doing this. I think Tiffany and Jason appreciate the fact that Char and I were available to babysit a few times so they could go out. What a burden – babysitting such a cute little girl.
But all good things have to come to an end and Jason, Tiffany, and Taylor had to leave. Returning from the airport I quickly realized how sad a house full of baby stuff can become without a baby.
