Dear Kaylee,

How exciting to be with you and all our family as you celebrated your First Communion. Like Grandpa teaches you, Jesus is always where you are, and he is with us in a special way at communion. He is telling us he loves us and protecting us from bad things. Jesus loves you very much and so does…

Love,
Grandpa

Dear Kaylee and Elise,

One of the fun things I get to do is watch you at your house! We play outside on your playhouse and swing set or you play hockey or ride bikes on the basketball court. The most fun for me is relaxing with the two of you and reading you a book!

Everything works out great as long as we get those spider webs out of the play house and Grandpa makes sure there aren’t any gifts left on the lawn by your dog, Sunny!

Love,
Grandpa

Dear Kaylee and Elise,

You will have a new auntie in your life, very soon! Yes, Uncle Greg asked Becca to marry him! Her engagement ring was hidden in a scoop of ice cream at their favorite ice cream shop Salt and Straw. Auntie Becca loves ice cream just like two little girls I know…

Auntie Becca

You know Auntie Becca well because you like to play with her and she is a real good player, as she is a preschool teacher. You will have lots of fun as you grow older with a wonderful new family member!

Love,

Grandpa

Dear Kaylee and Elise,

Nana and I both got to go to the zoo with you on Friday! It was super fun, as Kaylee would say, especially the carousel. Elise you even brushed the goat and you kept calling the goats, Sadie, because they look like our dog! Can’t wait until the next time.

Love,

Grandpa

Dear Elise,

You are eight months old now and the exciting news is you know how to say, “Momma!” Usually this means, “Grandpa you can’t hold me right now because I want to eat.”

We went to the Santa Clarita 4th of July parade. Your mommy likes to take comparison pictures by dressing you the same as Kaylee on some occasions. Well, Grandpa forgot her methodology and wore the wrong hat! It doesn’t matter though, you really do look like you older sister. And you keep your hat on longer than she does, too.

Good job, Elise!

Love,

Grandpa

Dear Elise,

We had fun last week with your Great Uncle John and mommy’s cousin, Hali. She likes to hold you and makes you smile. Uncle John practiced some of his daddy skills with infants. Like riding a bike…

It’s raining, so Grandpa is going to spend the day with you. We will walk around the mall and I will show you the sights. This is what I used to do with Kaylee.

So, Nana gets a Kaylee day and I get an Elise day!

I will write again to report on our adventure…

Love,

Grandpa

Dear Elise,

When you have a big sister, you have to go with the flow. Kaylee wants to play with you so much, she doesn’t realize this just can’t happen the way she wants because, off course you are only one month old. But, that’s all right. She adores you anyway!

I called your mommy today to see how you were doing. I heard Kaylee crying in the background about a yogurt. Well, I guess I know what happened once your mommy sent me this picture. She was starting to eat a yogurt, then she decided to go see how you were doing. That didn’t turn out well.

Kaylee leaned too far, and the rest is a baby who now knows what yogurt feels like…

Love,

Grandpa

Dear Elise, 

Welcome to Grandpa Diary.  I will do plenty of talking with you,  but your big sister just keeps me laughing! 

So, I will let each of you have your own post unless it is a family post. For example…

Your mommy brought you to LIFEhouse for the first time Wednesday. It was Prime Time Thanksgiving.

Your big sister shows up like this…

 

This is what you will put up with for a long time. It’s all right…We are just a fun family!
Your mommy is hilarious, too, so just get used to it…Actually, your daddy makes me laugh, too…

Love, 

Grandpa
