Family Time {3}

Dear Miss Dinah,

This morning your Gimpa and your Uncle Dan stopped by because they heard we had made muffins! You were sleeping until right before they left, but we did stroll over to Ginny and Gimpa's a little while later. It was a gorgeous day for late January - probably almost 60 degrees. You love to be outdoors. It's pretty windy in southwest Kansas, but you love that too. You giggle when the wind blows through your hair. Speaking of your hair, it shimmers golden in the sun. I call it "goldy locks!" It has a strawberry blond tint to it.

We rode with Ginny over to the Long Term Care to visit your great-grandmother and great-grandfather, and were they ever pleased to see you. You had lots of fun with them, kicking your legs about, and trying to "jump" up and down, even when in someone's arms. Granny (your great-grandmother) got such a kick out of your laughter. You were looking right at her as your mamma lifted you up into the air toward her, so you could share with her all your giggles. When Ginny asked Granny if she saw Matthew in you, Granny says matter-of-factly, "I wasn't looking for Matthew!" She just saw you!

Grandad (your great-grandfather) was doting over you as well. You have definitely charmed him. They are very blessed people, having a total of 28 grandchildren and great-grandchildren all together. They have been married for 65 years and are faithful praying people. I thank God that they have prayed for you before you ever came to be.

You and Granny at Christmastime.

You and daddy at Christmastime, too :) You were about 6 months old here.
I love you.

Love, Mamma.
