Liam Tucked Safely in his Mom's Nesting Place


I took this photo of Jenna just a few weeks before Liam arrived. It was such a miracle to see this all transpire.  I am so glad we were able to share this precious time with her.   My baby girl,  having a baby.   WOW

 Liam safely tucked into his Mom’s nesting place. Jenna and Luke came to celebrate the Labor Day weekend and their first Anniversary here at The Maine House.   We had such a good time.   Weather was perfect for boating and just being lazy.   Eating to much and just enjoying each other’s company.   Both Riley and Gracie had a sweet time also.   Riley loves coming to swim and Gracie loves hanging on the deck and playing ball.   

It has been such a wonderful 7 months with Jenna.   Watching her as she carries my “Lil Man” safely  tucked in her womb.   Sometimes I wish we could just take him out and play with him and then put him back.   It is almost time and I think of him everyday.   I love him already and have for many years,  even before he was conceived.
I think of Jenna also.   Seeing my baby girl carrying a baby is such a gift.   Such a joy to see the future through her and the past through me.   Life is a circle that continues.   With his birth I will have experienced 7 generations,  going back to my Great Grammy Harrison,  my grandmother Nani,  My Mom, Me,  Jenna and Now “Lil” Man”.  Such an amazing thing.   I will teach him like my Grams taught me and how my Mom taught Jenna.   It seems to me the greatest lesson we learn from our Gram’s is love.   
As Jenna grows,  I also remember the times when I carried her.   I remember how much she was wanted.   With 7 years between Chris and her  we knew what a blessing they both were and we didn’t take either for granted.   She carries like I did.  She has moved through her pregnancy the same as me.   No morning sickness,  and a sense of wonder at this awesome gift she holds.   I know she will be the best Mom ever,   well after me.   My baby girl  sharing yet another gift between Mom and daughter.   A mom and a daughter carry a special bond, especially at this time.   I just hope she knows how much this baby means to all of us.   It is hers,  but it is mine also,  just as she is mine. I’ll always be her Mom and she will always be his Mom and I’ll always be his Nana.   This weekend I felt his little body move and when it did so did my heart.September 6, 2009

I just read your missing friend, I have tears running down my cheeks. That was Nov. 27th, did you have your tea party and did she show? I hope so, she needs to let you in, you'd do her good like you always have. It's so sad when people crawl inside themselves and not grace the people that love them with their presence. Good luck getting your friend back...I would send her what you would write on the milk carton.
