I haven't written a whole lot lately about my grandson, Isaac. But I've been thinking about him. I always do. I miss the little guy. For no particular reason, I decided to offer pictures of him today. He has a good friend, Zane. Here are the two of them having a conversation. Isaac is the one under the baseball cap. I love this picture. Well, yes, I guess I love all his pictures, but in this one he isn't looking into the camera. He's just being himself and interacting with a friend.
I love this one with his mother, too. He looks so much like her when she was his age. We see that in so many of his pictures. It amazes me how much he looks like both of his parents. How can that be? But he does.
We have a picture of his dad as a baby and one of Isaac when compared side by side look like the same child. And we have pictures of him and his mom that again look like the same child.
Here's another, standing outside of the corn maze, or the amazing maize maze, as they advertise it. They always enjoy the maze each year. This, of course, was taken after their big pumpkin picking session.
I just want to hug him.
Guess I'll have to settle for now for my teddy. Teddies are nice, but somehow they just aren't the same as cuddling a little boy.
Especially since Teddy sits only about 4" tall - but he is soft and cuddly.
The pictures above, of course, except for Teddy, are not mine, but were taken by Isaac's Mom or Dad.
Lily Hydrangea, of Long Island Daily Photo has been nice enough to give me an award. It is the BFF (Blog Friend Forever) Gold Card Award.
I am very flattered and honored by this. I have great admiration for Lily. I found her blog because I lived on Long Island for twenty-one years, and she publishes so many photos of scenes that I remember well. They are beautiful photos, and are always accompanied by interesting and informative text.
There are rules with the award, including passing it on to five more blogs. This is something I always have trouble with, and although I did it one day last week, I really do not want to try to do it again. As I have said before, I have come to know so many truly wonderful bloggers, and have come to think of them as friends, and I find it very difficult to choose among them for these awards. I will think about it, Lily, but I can't promise to follow this rule just now.
