Where has the time gone?

It's hard to believe, but my little grandson celebrated his first birthday on Saturday...

and I ask myself, "where has the time gone"?!?! It seems like yesterday that my husband and I admired our new grandson in the hospital the morning he was born! We were so proud and overcome with emotion! He has brought us so much joy and enjoy him more each day!
So small and sweet, learning new things everyday!
Chubby and carefree!
From his first Halloween pumpkin...
to his first Christmas present...
it has been so much fun to see him grow and LOVE him more than words can say!!!!
The "torture" of his first haircut!
His birthday party was so much fun! The hat my daughter found for him was so darn cute!
Digging into his first piece of cake!
Four generations ~ my mom, my daughter Sara with Jackson and me...I love this picture!
My daughter has a very special bond with her dad, and he has proven to be a wonderful grandpa to Jackson. I think they will be sharing alot of special firsts together. He can't wait to take him fishing or give him a ride on the tractor! I think they will be real good buddies!

Thanks for indulging me with this little bragfest!!! I think it's obvious how much we adore this little man! Hopefully God will give us many more grandbabes to love!


  1. What a doll baby, I am right there with you, both my grand daughters are over a year old now! Lezlee

  2. Awww...this is so sweet, Julie! Jackson is adorable... and the four generation photo is a treasure!

  3. What a cutie pie! I just love that hat. Such a beautiful family, Julie. Come by my place for a giveaway.

  4. Julie he is one handsome young man. He is totally way too cute in his hat. I remember
    when our twin grand daughters turn one, my daughter and son-in-law had to rent the Community Center they invited so many. He has
    a large family. Now their turning 15yr old and
    this June and I am like you ....where oh where
    did the time go. I really enjoyed keeping them from the time they were 5wks. old. It sure is
    fun to spoil them and then send them home.LOL.
    Tell Jackson "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" for me and I love that picture of the four generations....Wonderful.

  5. What a precious little angel. Every one of those pictures made me smile, even the haircut. He's so adorable! What a great picture of four generations; you are so blessed.

  6. Brag away Grandma....you deserve it. He is one of the cutest little guys I've seen!
    How lucky to have a picture of four generations. I have one of me, my son, my mother and my grandmother together. It's one of my favorite photos.

  7. Your grandbaby boy is so adorable! I'm so happy to find your cheerful blog today! I'm a brand new blogger, and hope to start selling on line, but still have to learn how to set up the online shop, paypal, and all that! I have a grandson too, aged 8 months, and I'm so crazy about him, so I really enjoyed seeing your cutie-pie! I love your glorious junque, and hearing all about how you find it! I have a painting, cleaning business and have done lots of cleanouts, and I have some antiques and vintage stuff too! I never buy anything new. You are such a sweet gal! Blessings!

  8. He is indeed precious :) you will be blessed beyond all imagination in the years to come, it only gets better!

  9. Aw so sweet! He is adorable! I love the 4 generation photo. I also love the bit about your daughter and her father being so close. That is very special. Thanks for sharing your photos with us. I always love putting a face with a name. I like how you captured a year in the life of Jackson.


I truly appreciate each and every word!! Thanks for stopping by!!
