A few weeks ago I took the best trip and I got to meet one of my newest favorite people in this world. Insert heart emoji here…
Guys, I am a mom of boys. I’m a grandma of…. boys. I know boys. I know their rough and tumble energy. I know their sweet spirits. Recently though, I became the grandma of a little GIRL! A Girl. And she is the sweetest little cuddle bug.
Just look at those eyes. I could get lost in them. I took this picture while face timing this little sweetie. I have always told my boys that they should follow their dreams and live where ever they want. That sounded great until the grandkids came along. I should have added the clause “until you have babies and then you have to live within driving distance from ME!”. I’m just kidding here, (sort of) but man it’s so hard being so far away from her.
I absolutely love snuggling tiny new little ones. The way they curl up in your arms. I just take it all in and this girl, oh guys- she KNOWS how to snuggle. Melt. My. Heart.
When I was in the middle of the early mom years, I was exhausted. Late night snuggles were a necessity and I needed sleep. Now they are such a blessing and I enjoyed every single minute. It’s funny how things really do come full circle.
As I look back at the pictures we took, I’m already planning my next trip. Leaving was the worst, going back will be the best. Isn’t that just life? Anyway, I just wanted to share this sweet moment with all of you. I treasure each and every one of the moments like these. My guess is you do too. Hope your life is sweet today as well.

Nikki, I agree as I babysit my 3 g=sons once a week. I love interacting w them all. The ages are now 4,5,6. So two are now in elem. school but I cherished being w. them these last 3 years when they were home. Each little boy has a wonderful sweet personality that makes me (Grammy) and each of them laugh and giggle at a nan no second…. WHAT FUN… we all have. I love their laughter and listen just to hear the sound of it. YES, I do not get to see or hear my other two g-daughters b/c of living so far away and I try to interact as much as possible w. them as well. So, “Life is Sweet” w. grandchildren to hear them talk, giggle, laugh aloud, and yes, give Grammy hugs and kisses… it is the BEST!!! Thanks for sharing your New post of Life is sweet and enjoy all those mini moments as they change so much and grow so FAST. Much love, Spitzy
