The Enchantment of Chase ( my grandson)

Sep 15, 2010 - 8 comments

  Love, thought I knew it , I learned more. Being Chases Grandma has broadend my entire horizion of how deep love is. Its different too, not the same love as one has for their children, yet just as strong in a different way.

  You see us Grandmas don't have to follow rule's, we spoil them. I was pushing Chase in a shopping cart at a local store came to the end cap display. It was overloaded with Raggedy Anns and Andys...he reached out grabbed a Andy, and well of course I bought it. He can have cookies and little baby goodies anytime I want to give them to him. Even breakfast !

We have a routine though evertime he comes over, I clap my hands and reach for him, to take him from his mother or fathers' arms, he smiles, reaches out his chubby little arms, and does a body lunge to come to me, Then we walk to the hall mirror. He looks at " the baby in the mirror" laughs every time as if it was the first. (the mirror is covered w baby kisses and handprints and thats ok w me ). Then we go to the bird cage...I always say Chase lets tell the birdies hi, he smiles and (the cage is hanging from ceiling. due to cat ) he reaches his hands out and bats the cage around , sometimes he gets a brief touch of the birds feathers.

Yesterday I got out my big spoon and a metal pot, You would have thought he had recieved a million dollar toy. It was so fun to watch him try to repeat what I had showed him. Somehow the spoon did'nt make it to the pot until he discovered using the other end worked for him...ohhhh the noise. But he goes home !

For about five minutes straight we played a game where I was sitting on couch and picked him up above my head brought him down and we did Eskimo kisses, I think he would have laughed and played that until my arms gave out.

Theres just one thing yesterday for the first time when I was singing to him , as he was sitting on my lap he reached both those dimpled little hands out and rather firmly placed them on my mouth, then he smiled when I stopped singing ! He was ok when we resumed patty-cake LOL

Hard to believe my little angel will be one in 2 months,,

He took his first steps last week.

Love is grand...Grandbabies

What a beautiful journal post Cherie.  Your little Chase is so lucky to be so loved by so many.  And I can tell you from the perspective of someone who recently made her parents first time grandparents....there is not a whole lot more beautiful then watching your child bond with your parents.  It is a beautiful, amazing thing and never ceases to move me to tears.  It goes to show's things like you describe that truly matter in life..the rest of it is just small stuff in comparison!  Hugs to baby Chase and to you!!
