Happy Birthday to my grandson! His first year of life has been one of learning, growing, seeking…he is a winsome little boy; curious, happy, charming. He and his mother will be visiting me soon and I can barely wait to see him. There will be a ‘baby in the house’ again for a couple of weeks, and all the baby things, and baby ways, and the sound of his happy chirps in the morning, and sweet ‘”kisses” before bed. These last three months have been challenging for me and I haven’t produced much art as I navigate through this difficult time — but a visit from this little person will be a lovely respite!
