Come for the Baby, Stay for the Bath

Baby Girl has been smothered with all manner of affection by Nana Red this week. My mother has assumed the position of Granny Lap and each day, she serves as a soft incubator for Madigan while I am busy getting in my shower before 2p.m. HOT LITTLE LIFE UP IN HEEEYAH!

It occurs to me that parents spend most of their day hoping for those precious few moments when their children are asleep and they are still awake to scramble around to clean and shower and blog and stuff. Whereas the true mark of a grandparent is when they say, “And the best part of my day was getting to hold the baby while she was awake!” Nana Red is in love with Madigan and Madi and her parents are glad for the extra hands and lap.

Nana finally gets some facetime…

    I seriously will try not to have every comment say “That girl is giving me baby fever”, buuut… she so is. Kendra, you have a piece of Heaven in Madigan. She is so beautiful. And I am glad Nana is enjoying her granddaughter 🙂
    Enjoy every moment. Madi doesn’t care if you miss a shower or two 🙂

    Cute pics!!! I’m sure yo’ mama is absolutely tickled to be there. 🙂 I’ll call you soon to catch up!! I’ve been trying to wait til things settle down a little for you, but I guess if I do that it’ll be 37 years later… so I’ll just call soon instead. 🙂

  • I love getting “awake time” with the baby so I completely understand your mother’s enthusiasm! And I LOVE the “trollop” face.

  • Too! Cute!
