“That’s my baby!”



“My aunt never saw that coming. I got my baby back.”





“You’d think Grandma would know how to use her smartphone by now. Guess I’ll teach her.”





“Mommy is telling me to get my foot off the table. But then why are she and Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa laughing and taking pictures of me?





“I really like this toy airplane. If I just drop it in the cooler along with the rhubarb and asparagus, no one will notice. Not Grandma. Not Mommy. Not Daddy. Last time I took a wooden block from Grandma’s house and Mommy didn’t find it until we got home.”

    She is getting more and more adorable! I can’t stand it! Such a cutie even with her foot on the table! 🙂

    As the millennials say, “For cute”.

    Oh Audrey, little Izzy is getting to be so fun isn’t she. Just when you think they are at the best stage, it just keep getting better. Love the airplane in the cooler….silly girl!

    • Fun is an excellent word to peg to Izzy. I just talked to her mama on the phone and Izzy was looking for my face on her phone and couldn’t figure out why the screen was blank. But she did wave bye-bye to the phone and say bye-bye. Oh, I love this grandma gig.

    Love, love, love these pics, Audrey! What a sweet pea!! And yes, you can see that little personality coming out! I loved seeing Miranda too – time flies by. Continue to enjoy, Grandma …those deep connects impact us (of all ages) for the rest of our lives. PLease give her a hug and “some reads” from me.
