We had torrential rains here last night..It rained so hard and for so long (ALL EVENING AND ALL NIGHT LONG) that as I stood washing up my supper dishes at my kitchen sink, I started feeling rain hit me on my head…I looked up and sure enough…it was raining from my kitchen ceiling! I have a huge leak there and also in Dan’s room…Lord have mercy, if it isn’t one thing, it’s another. I am leaving this problem up to the good Lord…No; I don’t know where the money will come for this….but I am sure GOD does.
Amanda will be going to the OBGYN every two weeks now, beginning next week. The time is flying by so fast…well, at least for me, maybe not for Amanda.
They still have no idea what to name this little boy….
So I am going to ask yall…
What is a good name for this little boy??? Preferably one that begins with “W”,and is sort of like a cowboy’s name??? That is what she is leaning toward…right now anyways! lol I told her that it looks like I am going to have to call him; “ BABY X ” ! For real, if you can think of any good names, please feel free to leave me a comment...no matter what letter the name starts with!
My nieces’ from Louisville, Ky. came down this past week. That’s Susie on the left and Wendy on the right in the picture below…
The little girl and baby girl are Wendy’s children; they are my great-nieces! It was the first time that I had seen the baby girl ! They only stayed for a couple of days, so it was a fast trip and like always I hated to see them go. I didn’t get to see Christina (my other niece) and her children, as she didn’t get to come….but she knows I love her…don’t you Pumpkin???
Wyatt loves tractors! He got to go to a tractor pull not long ago with his mama and daddy and now he is in love with tractors! There is one across from my back yard and he wasn’t satisfied, until he got me to take him over there so he could see it up close and touch it! He would stand there and look at it and be going “brmmmmm---brmmmmmm…” like revving his motor up! He even tried to say “tractor”… it came out “trac-cor” lol
Wyatt has a new word now… “hot”. He was playing with the pull chain to my bedside lamp, cutting it on and off. I was right there sitting on my bed watching him. The lamp has a florescent light in it that stays cool, thank goodness…but somehow he must had put his hand too close to the base of the bulb..because all of a sudden, he pulled his little hand away and looked right at me and said “hot”…stringing it out long…. saying…..hhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat sounding like “what” …He didn’t cry, just looked very surprised!
I have no other place to put my deep freezer, except in my bedroom…so it sits right by my bed… The day after Danny died, I figured out that I could put a picture of Danny right there on the side of it and when I lay down…Danny’s face would be the last thing I see before I close my eyes…just like when he lived. It soothes me to see his face before I go to sleep.
Well, after Wyatt got through with his experimenting with my lamp; he sat there on my foot stool and was steadily looking at that picture of Danny…staring hard at it.
I sat on my bed….very still and quiet…just watching him…
I nearly fell off my bed when he pointed at the picture and said very plainly….“ PAPA? ”…I couldn’t believe what I had just heard…so I asked; “ What did you say Wyatt?” and again, he said…plain as day… “ PAPA?” as he touched the picture.
Let me tell you…I had to swallow one hell of a lump in my throat, for this old heart of mine was breaking…
I said, with some difficulty, “Yes Darling…that is your PAPA”. He patted the picture…as he tends to do with the puppies when he loves on them…saying; “ PAPA” the whole time…I had been taking pictures of him with the lamp and so I snapped these too.
I so wish that Danny could have lived long enough for Wyatt to have known him and to have known the love that He would have gotten from such a wonderful “PAPA”…..
Never the less…He will know all about his “PAPA” ….
As long as there is still breath in this old body of mine, he will know.
I Thank YOU God for this wonderful little child YOU sent to us.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
