Last year our beautiful daughter, Jennifer and her husband, Matthew, had a beautiful 'little lamb' of their own.
While Jennifer was carrying her baby they chose not to find out the sex until birth. I lot of young mums are doing that now. Just like the old days. ;-) Since they didn't know the sex of this child they called him or her 'little lamb'.
Jennifer and Matthew live in Fort McMurray, Alberta which is a very long way from here! It is 'out west' and 'up north'. We talk on the phone and Skype. and do email and Facebook. I thank the Lord for all this new technology, otherwise we'd have to rely on the old fashioned snail mail and the odd photograph.
So, when little lamb was born, he got a name ~ Ewan Matthew. Here is a photo of Ewan when we went to visit him at one week old.
So tiny and precious, a perfect little lamb. How I enjoyed my cuddle time!
The new little family - September 2010 (looking a wee bit weary)
Then we got to see him at Christmas time, meeting in Toronto where
his other grandparents live.
All ready to go in the car and so happy ~ 3 months old.
On Tuesday, the 22nd, Ewan turned 6 month old.
Isn't he just the cutest little guy? I call him Mr. Precious just because he is!
He looks so happy and recognizes our faces and voices on the computer screen now.
I often wonder what he's thinking when these 'pictures' talk to him and then
what he will think when he actually sees us in person again!
Just look at how smart he is ~ he's reading a book already!
Well, I just had to share this with you today. A lot of you are new followers and
haven't seen our precious grandson before. And I am a very proud Grammie,
as you can tell! I can't believe Ewan is half a year old already. We are looking
forward to a visit with them later this year ~ maybe even two visits if we can
work it out. Oh to have my own wings or a pot of gold to buy airline tickets
so we all could fly back and forth to visit whenever we want!
I am so thankful for our precious family in the west. God has been so
good to us and to them. We are truly blessed.
Thank you for letting me brag about Mr. Precious today.
Blessings to you,
Some of you were asking yesterday if we were getting the snow they received in
Ontario and the answer is NO as the system is travelling south of the Maritimes
through the New England states (sorry). I know they were having 'spring-like'
weather recently but I'm afraid they may have snow and wind and cold again.
That's fickle March for you!
