Good Morning Sweetie...
What a doll baby. I love hearing her conversations with you. Isn't she just precious? (My Daddy still calls me his Baby Girl.) Boy does she ever have BIG dimples. Love that little smile of hers. She is a pretty big talker for only 4. Quite the little grown up.

And Ethan is so darn cute. Just look at all the beautiful hair of his. Love the curls too.

I bet you guys are going to have fun with those two this Christmas. Has she given you her list yet?

Have a great day sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I hate telling people my baby is 4 now. She is growing up way to quickly.. I think we will be referring to the blog for many years to come. Thank you for capturing her spirit Nana. We love you.

Well, if Sweet Cheeks is right (and she usually is) than all of my grand babies will be MY babies! Poor Grandpa! Maybe someday, someone will have him a boy. But, I'm thrilled to be getting girls!

Diana, this kid cracks me up. Love the grin behind the pacifier. She can sure think on her feet.
Tell her my baby is 25. He hates being called that, but has gotten used to it.
Hope you all have a fun day!

Julie Harward said...

Oh wow, look at her dimples! And those eyes, those teasing grandma eyes...so cute! :D

Pam said...

What a cutie. The babies get all the good stuff - doesn't she realize that yet. If I were her I would be fighting tooth and nail to still be the baby of the house.

Vanessa said...

Oh, it is soooo hard to stop thinking of them as our babies! My youngest keeps trying to get us to stop saying "baby girl" when we talk to her but I just can't! It's painful!

Hi Diana...I know what you mean about wanting our little ones to be our babies forever. I keep telling my grandkiddos to stop growing so fast.
Sweetcheeks has gorgeous eyes, and sweet dimples.
How do you keep from sucking her face off?!

Oh Diana, all I can say is that one day Sweet Cheeks (and the other grandkids) are going to be able to read this blog when they are older!! What a beautiful thing and how much enjoyment she will get out of it!!

They are going to tell stories about Nana!!

Since our little granddaughter Abby was born her big sister has taken to 'stealing' the paci. But that's only because after seeing the baby nursing, she declared, "Dats is gross!"

Sweet Cheeks is the perfect name for your little one. I've never seen sweeter cheeks (with dimples) to boot! I love your post. As always, it warms my heart.
