21 October

The bittersweet vine is so pretty at this time of year. 

It's very invasive but I love the orange and red berries 

and the green leaves which turn to such a pretty yellow.

It wouldn't feel like Autumn without a bit of bittersweet

berries to decorate the house with.

I got to spend some time with Verne and his mama.


He and I chatted while his mama took a nice long shower.

He told me stories about sucky things and warm milk.

It's not always easy being one week old and sometimes it helps 

to have a Nana you can tell your troubles to.

The weather was sunny and warm, which is quite unusual for October.

We sat in the backyard for a bit so my daughter could get some fresh air

and Verne had his first little picnic lunch.


  1. A sweet (not bittersweet) post. Nothing like cuddling with a baby and I'm sure his mom enjoyed the wee break.

  2. Happy days to you, grandma!

  3. i like those berries and what a pretty picture! oh, verne is the cutest...love his sweet expressions! we too had some nice warm weather in the 80's this week and then bam, today down into the 60's! thank you for linking with willy nilly, have a great weekend :)

  4. Oh, I can see that the two of you did a bunch of bonding in your little time together. Sweet times with sweet babies can't be beat.

  7. Verne is a handsome little guy and yes, it's good to have a Nana who can lead him on his new journey ... stories are the best! Have a lovely week.

  8. He looks like a doll baby. That is so cute....the one does look like he's telling Gma things. He looks so alert for one week. Precious. Thanks so much for stopping by and linking up. Appreciated. ~hugs 'n giggles~, Peabea

  9. Beautiful pictures. Congrats on the new baby. Nothing like a newborn snuggle on an Autumn's morning.

    Happy Five on Friday

  10. So precious and so expressive at such a young age.

  11. What a sweet little guy! So nice you live close enough to have frequent visits with him. Our little grandson is 2 1/2 and a delight but I am already missing those sweet baby snuggles.

  12. Oh newborns are just so adorable. Thanks for sharing those pics.

  13. Beautiful baby, is he your first?

  17. Such a sweet and precious time of life.

  18. Such sweet cuddles with your little newborn. I'm sure mama was delighted to have a relaxed shower.

  19. What a precious baby Verne. He really does look as if he's getting ready to talk to you. Wonderful that we can communicate in ways other than words, isn't it?

  20. It is so special to be able to be part of "first" things with our grandchildren.
    What a blessing you were to take care of him so his mama could enjoy a long, hot shower.
    The bittersweet vine is lovely. I've never seen it before.
    Autumn often has some bittersweet times, don't you think?
    Have a great week.

  21. A lovely post and what a gorgeous boy. Enjoy. B x

  22. Such sweetness. There's nothing like cuddling and chatting with a darling newborn. Enjoy every minute.

  23. Oh my goodness this post made me smile. What a sweet little grandson! Congratulations to your family!

  24. Ohhh! I love little Verne already! I'm so glad that he has a nana to help him through the hard times :)
