Grandpa & Frankie, 8/21

Grandpa & Frankie, 8/21
Originally uploaded by silverzephyr.
But for a trip or two back to Houston to take care of the pool and check on mom, my dad, Frankie's namesake, has been in Austin since Anna first went into the hospital at the end of June. He's been an amazing source of support throughout this whole ordeal, but never more so than now. He's been coming over to sit with Frankie while Anna and I catch up on sleep, staying until 2 or 3 in the morning. He's changing diapers, giving Frankie bottles, and generally keeping us sane and making this transition smoother than we thought possible. I'd say we owe him big time, but when you see him with his grandson, you get the feeling this debt's already been repaid.

I'm thinking this is true love. My mom came and stayed with me so I could sleep. A bigger blessing you couldn't ask for. XOXO, and I can't wait to meet this little man!

This picture made me teary eyed.I'm a little jealous of Grandpa Frank but I'm even more thankful that he is there for all of you. I'm more at ease back in St.Louis knowing he is there. Thanks Grandpa Frank. We all love you.

Those little critters are SO amazingly loveable that you don't mind giving up sleep! The next thing you know, Frankie will be a TEENAGER (boohissboohiss!!!) and then you can get mad at him for not letting you sleep!

That is the best feeling in the world...having a baby sleep on your chest like that...miss that so much! My 4 yr old doesn't sleep like that on me unless she is sick...sniff...sniff...Makes me almost kind of wish she had a cold...runny, snotty nose and all. But I digress, God bless his little cotton socks! How wonderful!
