I still remember Granny's sewing notions.
A button here, a button there,
in a drawer, in an apron pocket.
Old shirts were never discarded.
Buttons were cut off and cloth was used
to make other garments or undergarments.
I can remember the "clothes pin bag"
hanging on a nail on the back porch
where the wringer washer sat.
Granny's apron pocket held a little bit of everything.
I imagine once in a while you may find
a couple of clothespins left over from the line.
A Granny's apron may be full
but a Granny's heart is never too full to hold one more.
Our Connor man got a haircut with candy and a movie
at a kid's salon in Franklin last week.
He will turn three this month and he is potty trained now.
No more pull-ups for the big boy.
"I'm wearing big-boy britches."
At 6 months, our Cora bug is ready to crawl.
She is being introduced to rice cereal and veggies.
She is a sweetheart. She makes my heart melt.
Some have asked me about my daughter and Baby Harper.
I don't have a belly bump photo to show.
Next weekend we will be in Nashville for Connor's birthday
and I'll come back with photos for sure.
Harper is growing and both mommy and baby are doing well.
Daddy can now feel her kick. She can open her eyes
and she can hear. I say, "Sing, baby girl, sing."
She weighs 1 1/2 pounds and is 13 1/2 inches in length.
This week Christy had the glucose tolerance test
and we anxiously await the results.
These two are as happy as can be.
They just don't do pictures.
That will have to change when our baby gets here!
I'm sure Daddy will buy a camera.
These two are TN and GA fans
but are happily on the same "team" in life.
I don't sew and I don't hang clothes on the line,
but I love like a Granny!
My Heart is Full to Overflowing,
