* Baby Hendrix ~ one month old *



What can be accomplished

In one month’s time passing?

A short story perhaps,

Grass grown from seeds,

Hair grown 1/16 inch,

Crops can be harvested,

Four weeks of language,

May be communicated,

A moon’s full cycle,

Three kisses daily,

Ninety total,

But wait,

Forgot fingers

and toe kisses,


Endless love,

    • Hi Tejaswi, Happy Friday to you!
      I was really going through a moment of realizing how quickly life passes us by. When Hendrix was born I was not posting photos. I learned a new “skill” and so had to go back and share his life. . . From the very beginning ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Good day to you too, dear Robin…
        Yes, I know. I know. Just too well.
        I am so overwhelmed with emotion when I remember how quickly the days passed by when my daughter was born. It was like those first few years went away just too soon. It was heartbreaking. I always wished I could stop Time, freeze it, I wouldn’t have minded if the same days repeated over and over again.
        But then, I am going to probably still continue to wish Time stops… I don’t know how to capture every delightful moment in this journey and make it permanent.
        Photos, videos, scrap books… I sound like that idiot father who has nothing else to do but this.. but you know, I really don’t mind whatever label I get, just as long as there were a way to record life in its entirety. Which is foolish, but I wish….

      • Well, Tejaswi, I have stack of little albums of my 6 grandchildren but have just purchased the first baby book for Hendrix! I am on my way to following your “Proud Daddy” footsteps which certainly left a lifelong imprint on your daughter and now, upon my recent memories, too. I love the way you expressed this. โ™ก

    • My daughter in law, Trista, is doing a fantastic job of nursing him and not trying to schedule him. I agree, Jill, he is getting a little pudgy which shows chubby cheeks!
      I saw your love story on Pam’s blog, but remembered it from your blog, sometime probably an anniversary post? I love โ™ก “How Jill met Derek” story!! You 2 were meant to be together. Have a great weekend!

    • Beth, what may confuse others is that I announced his birth on August 24th I think and did not learn my new skill of taking photos and adding to posts until 2 and a 1/2 weeks ago. I wanted to backtrack to share his life with you and several who are close to me. When DIL gave me her, “go ahead:” I went, ha ha!
      Time flies far too quickly. I had him laughing so this will be coming up soon. Not sure if my photos and simple words are using my writing “craft” but I am having fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Isn’t it funny, Lyn? When I had a girl then a boy and then another girl. . . The boy was called “pretty” and had hair. Hendrix is his son and takes after both Trista and James. My own two girls had NO hair, I had to use tape to “glue” bows to their bare heads. One I could put a cute bonnet on her head without her shrieking. In my own family, both brothers have thick wavy hair but my hair needs tons of “assistance” to stay curly and give the illusion of “thick.” Lyn, how about your children, what was their hair like? ๐Ÿ™‚

      • that is so funny! I love it!what an adorable baby!!! they had hair like mine, fine not much, then they hit age 2 and lots of curly hair, none of them have my fine hair now! they have lovely thick hair and everyone is different! They go from blonde hair to black and curly!

    • I like that your children started out with baby fine hair and then became wavy as nd thicker, Lyn. Such a range of colors, too. A little from all of both families. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • This is such a great observation, really studying the faces of people. He also makes me smile by staring at blanket patterns that catch his eyes. Such a sweet thing to say, adding to the post meaning. Thank you for what you said about my simple but heart felt love poem. Almost like an “ode” to my grandson. Hope you are well and I have been busy but will try to catch up on reading your posts. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It really shows how quickly time flies when you, Dan, think of “just yesterday we had Faith born” and this is part of my emotional upheaval inside me.
      Just being sentimental, wishing time to “creep” instead of rushing past. Realizing that my children grew too fast, now possibly the last one unless Felicia marries and has children.
      Have a good one, Dan! Cheers to you and yours.

    • I like the way you called his baby hair a “faux hawk!” Now, that is a cute description, Marissa! ๐Ÿ™‚ Babies are sure silly, his look is one of a myopic baby who still is puzzled with his 4 siblings and visitors daily sometimes.

      • He’s probably just thoughtful. He seems like one of those who will take a while to talk and then bust out with full sentences and Shakespeare quotes. My son was like that. My son also had a faux hawk for a while.

    • Thank you, Jay. He is getting plenty of attention. My ex and his wife have come three times from Dayton to Delaware, Ohio. They are “Mimi and Poppy,” while I am Nana.

    • Sylvia, so glad you know exactly how sweet those precious little features are; fingers and toes. Irresistible. Thanks, but I have to admit I love all sorts of babies everywhere. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Jenny, aren’t all babies ones you want to hold and rock? I have always, since age 5, “cooed” at babies. Being a big sister to 2 brothers, I just Loved playing house and Mommy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Natalie, how many grandchildren do you have? I bet they were cute โ™ก when little. I remember a beautiful granddaughter who made you a proud grandmother. Was she finishing high school and heading to college? ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Robin I have three grandchildren, two adopted Guatemalan boys, and a granddaughter from my son-in-law’s first marriage. My daughter miscarried her only biological child. But both my grandsons were adopted at birth and brought back to the US at 6 and 8 months respectively and Annie was only two when Nikki and Chris married so I’ve been able to enjoy and love them all almost since birth. Of course, I would have loved it if Nikki’s baby had survived but we don’t always get want we want. Hugs, N ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

      • I am sorry about your daughter’s miscarriage. As you said, one never knows why this happens but we don’t always get what we want. Maybe it was meant to be she “saved” other children with their live. โ™ก Natalie, lovely family list and thanks for filling me in, dear. Off to work, hi ho hi ho! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Another adorable shot, so much can happen in one month as you say and for the little ones the time flies by so quickly. I wait..and wait to be told I’m going to be nanna. You will hear me screaming with delight from here, I’m sure. โค๏ธ

    • I will be jumping with joy when I hear of your upcoming grandbaby announcement some day. No rushes, since you may need time to enjoy your parents, Mr. S and daughters right now. God has His perfect timing and Plan for us, I believe. My life would be like a skeleton, “bare bones” if my children had moved far away. There is much comfort and love in my life, thanks to them. โ™ก

      • That is sweet, thank you. Yes my world will change and you are right, perhaps there is some ‘settling’ of other people to come first. I’m so happy you have your grand babies, let’s hope you’re never reduced to bare bones. ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

      • I agree with idea of settling and situations bring ready for baby arrivals, Jen.
        As far as bare bones, I was being a touch over – dramatic in that comment. ๐Ÿ™‚
        I wish I could find someone to go over and “fall in love” with my grandies and adult kids. I am so happy Beth (glasses are misplaced pal) has found a partner and have sincere hope of this happening someday to me. Thanks, my sweet Jen. xoxo

    • Thank you for sending “endless love โ™ก,” Inese! You are so right, everything is exciting, but I do love the following ones after, too. My grandchildren range from 12 down to Hendrix who is now almost 2 months. I posted after getting permission from son’s wife.

  2. Great looking boy Robin, has a look on him as if he has already worked out his path in life.
    Don’t overdo it with the love and kisses though Robin, leave some room for all the girls who will be part of his life.
