The Journal of Penny Grant - May 14 - Our trip to China

I've been encouraging Nick to do most of baby care at the moment. He'll be back to work all too soon, and I'm hoping to get him more comfortable around Buddy.

Who would believe an adult could be intimidated by the presence of a such an adorable baby?  And yet, Buddy does make his dad uncomfortable.

"Nick, honey, let's go to China!"

He spluttered for a moment. "Are you mad? We can't possibly take Buddy on a trip like that."

The Journal of Penny Grant - May 11 - Buddy meets his grandparents

A new day dawns, and I'm finally feeling a bit more like myself. It was time to properly greet our new son. Last night, with all the fuss and bother, well, getting some sleep was all that was on my mind.

So I did the morning baby tending.

While Nick invited the grandparents over to see their newest grandchild. Of course, my parents are old hands at the grandparent business, since Vincent's daughter is nearly a teen.

Stephen and Abbey have two boys, so Buddy isn't anyone's first grandson either.

Still, we're excited and happy and I'm sure our folks will be thrilled to see their tribe of grandchildren growing.

"Good morning, snookums. I hope it's going to be a big day today and you get to say hi to all your grandparents."
