|Mimi with Kate, a couple of years ago|
and i am thankful that i got to grow up with a grandmother who lived nearby and loved having all of the grandchildren over to her house. i have such great memories of spending time with all of my grandparents from as far back as i can remember.
i'm thankful that my children will have the same opportunity to spend lots of time with their grandparents as they too all live nearby.
i'm also touched that jonathan shares a birthday (october 8th) with my maternal grandmother, "nana", who passed away a few months before he did. my mimi's birthday is on december 9th, a couple of weeks before evan's due date. it sure would be interesting if evan were born on that day...i guess we will see.
