He Calls Me Nonna

Nate about a month old.

Nate,  about a month old. He is my precious grandson.

How can you even know how precious your baby is until you feel the soft touch of his fingers on your face, the complete trust he has in you as you hold his hands and take a step or two, the smile on his face as he recognizes your voice, the warm embrace, the wet kisses on your face, the moments you pick him up and he snuggle close to you, safe and warm in your arms. It’s the unspeakable happiness he shows when you are around and the inexpressible love that  makes him so precious, so loved, so treasured.

Nate and his mom...

Nate and his mom…

He is turning three in a few days, a lovable and smart kid. Time flies…too soon.

He definitely enjoyed attending a Halloween party at his mom's office.

I always look forward to the days when they visit me and Nate’s shouts of “I love you Nonna”.  A warm hug, a tight embrace, a wet kiss on the cheeks, what more could one ask for.

And here I thought it would be easy to create and start another blog. Starting all over again but that is the challenge of blogging. This is a continuation of my other blog called Dreams and Escapes. It is still a work in progress...
