Four Generations of Love

My parents came to help us out while I was in the hospital having Jacob. Since we no longer have a guest room, they have to sleep on an air mattress or the couch when they come to visit. Because of our sleeping arrangements, my grandmother did not get to come the week Jacob was born. I didn't think the floor or the couch was the best place for my almost-92-year-old grandma to sleep.  Mom and Dad came up a couple of weekends ago just to bring Grandma to meet her 2nd great-grandson.

My parents and my grandmother live together, so when we go to SC to visit, Quinn has two grandmas there to love on.  He calls my mother "Grandma", and he calls my grandmother "The Other Grandma"!!  We tried to do something cute, like "Gi-Gi" for great-grandma, but Quinn insists that she is "The Other Grandma"...and so that's what she is!

Here is Jacob meeting "The Other Grandma"!   :-)

Of course, Momma had to get her arms full of her grandsons as well.

And I had to get a picture of our 4 generations together.

Grandma is the only grandparent I have left, and the times we spend with her are so precious to me.  As the oldest granddaughter (and the only one who is married), I'm also the only one with children.  I am so glad Quinn is getting to make memories with his "Other Grandma".

We are truly blessed to still have Mama with us. I hope the boys will grew up with memories of "the other grandma". She loves those boys so very much!!
