AN OVERNIGHT VISITOR

Thomas Wyatt, my 21 month old grandson, came for a visit over the weekend. His dad, Rob, dropped him off around 11:30 a.m. on Saturday and he spent the night with his Nana Juju.
My niece had given me a small sliding board that belonged to her granddaughter and I could not wait to show it to TW. I was not disappointed. He absolutely loved it and played on it the entire time he was at my house. He went down the correct way in the beginning and then backward, head first, sideways, and any other way he could think of to try.

He loves Elmo and has several Elmo tapes here to watch. He doesn't like cartoons on t.v. but is totally mesmerized by Elmo for some reason. He likes to push his little trucks around on the floor and seldom takes a nap when he is here because he is so excited to see his toys and books that stay here for him when he visits.
TW has a small stool that I keep in the closet. He gets it out and puts it at the end of my coffee table and we put a placemat there so he can eat snacks, drink juice, and watch Elmo.







He loves bath time and when he is ready for bed, Nana stays with him until he goes to sleep. He slept from 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. He gets up in a great mood and we get him dressed and he has cheerios for breakfast.
Dad picked him up early and he was blowing me kisses over Dad's shoulder when they left. My only grandson has become such a joy in my life!

Hi Judy, I can see that TW is losing the 'baby' look and becoming his own 'wee person' ... He's a beautiful wee boy and I'm sure he will be a real heartbreaker as he grows up. He's just soo cute ! Cheers Kate x.

Beth said...

Oh what a cutie he is, Judy! He is growing up so fast---he looks so mature in that little sweater vest. It's obvious from the pictures just how much Thomas Wyatt loves his Nana Juju---he looks so adoringly at you!

I always love these Thomas Wyatt posts!

He is a beauty. I know how much you enjoy him now and it will increase as he can begin to talk to you. My little ones are 3 and 6 and such a joy.

How nice that your grandson got to stay for the whole weekend. It looks like he had a good time. I know that you did- can tell by the all of the excitement in the way you wrote your post. If I had a grandson as cute as that, I'd be excited too. What a sweet little guy!

You are so lucky to have TW. Me - I only have plants. My daughter has a garden centre and my son is a horticulturist. No kids anywhere.

He looks like a JOY!! I can see why he brings you so much joy. Kids are so precious.
His little button up sweater vest is so cute.
I'm sure he just loves his visits with Nana Juju.
His smile shows just how much fun he had.

Oh Judy, he is so cute! I wish mine were that small again. they sure do grow up in a hurry. I'm going after my grandsons today. They are on their Spring break. Their Mom and Dad are going to Central America and they chose to come stay with me. That is a good feeling! My heart runneth over!

I wandered over here from Betsy's blog. Love this post, it was almost like reading about my own 14 month old grandson. He is coming to spend the morning tomorrow while his mother (my daughter-in-law) goes to bible study. I will end out having him about 4 hours. Grandchildren are great!

He is cute, and I enjoyed reading about him.
