Today I went to my Grandma's wake and I saw a lot of my relatives that I haven't seen in quite some time! It was the first time that some of them had met Autumn. Nathan and Autumn did great for the long evening and once again my New Native sling was a life saver as Autumn slept in it after I fed her. If anyone has any suggestions on a front wearing back pack type baby carrier I would love to hear what has worked for you because I am afraid she is getting too long for the New Native sling and may outgrow it soon. I don't care for wearing her on the hip in it nor does she care for it.
My Grandma had a lot of beautiful flowers and a lot of family, neighbors, friends, etc. were there to see her. I loved looking at the photo collages and my cousin Steve had a cute artwork piece he had created as a child for Grandma that said she was 5'2", soft spoken with curly hair. I should take a photo of it tomorrow if I can remember. They had the priest there to do a prayer for my Grandma and my cousin Steve carried in Grandma's dog Coco in to see her. I thought that was very touching and he had done so much for Grandma while she was still alive.
I took a picture of Nathan with his 2nd cousin Will. I believe Will is 5 (or 4?) and he is the youngest in the family after Nathan and Autumn. I love how they both have a cheesey, fake smile for me. Haha! Boys! Nathan was really watching Will and kept commenting on how Will did things-- like how Will could get a cup off the counter and then fill it with water by himself. Then Nathan would say, "I want to do that!" I can just imagine what Nathan will all learn when he goes to preschool!
I also wanted to share Nathan's grass. It is growing and growing and growing. I gave Nathan his first pair of kiddie scissors in his Easter basket and I may have him 'practice' cutting with them by giving this grass a haircut soon. We'll see how long it gets first. Nathan is so excited about his grass.
Here is the grass today.
Here is the grass last week.
