Perfect Moment Monday: Ginevra & G.G.

Good Morning Humble Readers! 

Lori at Write Mind Open Heart defines a perfect moment as "noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between."  Every Monday bloggers from all over the blogosphere pause to be mindful of the perfect moments that happen when we aren't even trying. 

The main purpose of our trip to K-town last week was so that my extended family could meet our precious little girl.  There were other perks, like Beloved and I getting an evening out while my parents babysat and good food made in my mom's kitchen, but most important was that Ginevra got to meet lots of people, particularly my Grandma R.

Meeting G.G. for the first time
Our first day in town we headed to the nursing home where my Grandma R lives.  She had a debilitating stroke three years ago, but in recent months she has shown a great amount of improvement, even being able to feed herself (a huge step from where she was last fall).  When we arrived, she was just finishing her lunch, but she pushed away her tray and demanded "Give me that baby!".  It was so cute!

We went down to visit almost every day of our stay, and "G.G." (as all the great-grandkids call her) demanded to hold her.  She was so sweet, smooching on her, hugging her for all she was worth.  And Ginny, she did really well too.  Especially considering all the strangers she met, and all the little grannies at the nursing home who felt the need to pinch her cheeks.

More pics from K-town, Audrey's baptism, and this year's fancy Valentine's Day dinner all coming this week!  (Provided this sinus thing stays at a dull roar)

Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Oh, that 4-generation photo is so special. I have one of those where I am the baby.

    And my grandma was called GG by her great-grandchildren, too!

    Looks like a lovely G-filled visit.

  2. What an awesome "perfect moment" for the week! I too am loving the 4-generation photo, something Ginerva will surely treasure someday!

    Can't wait to see more pics from your trip. :)

  3. What a great moment. Ginny has gotten so big. What a beautiful little girl.

  4. Such precious photos! So glad your grandma got to meet the new generation!
