What is love?
From the very beginning, Little One has had a very strong bond with her Grampy. Grampy’s first visit with Little One in the NICU when she was a few days old did not last too long. In fact, it only lasted a few minutes. Admittedly, I was upset. Grampy drove six hours from the Island to Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto with Hubby, and only stayed a few minutes. I didn’t know this at the time, but Grampy could not stand to be in the NICU and was worried that Little One would not survive. She was really tiny and born so early. She had tubes and leads attached to her tiny body. In hindsight, I can see why Grampy didn’t feel he could stay in the NICU for long.
Today, Little One and her Grampy are as close as can be. It melts my heart to see the love and the bond they have.
Okay, this may not be so much of a “Wordless” Wednesday post after all!
I’m sorry. I just had to do this…
If you have a Wordless Wednesday post, please share! We’d love to check it out!

This is so so moving! I, for one, am at a loss for words. What a sweet relationship, and sweet photos.

As a grandmother of 15 and a great grandmother of six, I can assure everyone that the love we have for these little ones increases with time and the bond is as strong as steel. I love the picture of Grampy and your little one and the one with her wearing his hat is priceless. Her wisdom is beyond her years.
This is such a beautiful post. Thank you for sharing this.
First I love that song. So rhetoric video was hilarious after that touching post.
Secondly, your post made me cry because my father is no longer with us so those moments are lost for us.
Lastly, so happy she loves to get to spend so much time with LO.

Speaking from a grandparent’s perspective, there is nothing we love more on this planet then our grandchildren.
I just love seeing pictures of Little One, she’s so breathtakingly beautiful and growing growing way too fast….
Those are such special moments to remember. I have a similar picture of my little one’s grandpa holding her as a newborn. Now that he’s gone, we show her that picture to remind her of him.

I love the photo of her wearing grampy’s hat. So adorable!
Aw what a very sweet post! I love that she has your dad’s hat on. And let me just say that the ending video will give me flashbacks of that movie, Night at the Roxbury, haha!

This is beautiful Christine. I remember the first time I held Kailey – she was in the hospital over a month and I couldn’t hold her at all – only saw her once because the hospitals were quarantined – it was during the Sars crisis. Kath and Eren picked her up and put her in her carseat -she was so tiny and they surprised me by stopping at the office so I could see her. Everyone wanted to grab her but they came straight to my office and sat the carseat down on my filing cabinet. I was starstruck and I cried – it was one of the most beautiful moments of my life. It was like the first time my Mother held Kathryn – I can still see it in my mind – there’s nothing like the relationship between a grandparent and a grandchild.
