Abbie's eyes

Joaquin is a doll. He eats and sleep most of the time. This is very good for a babysitter like myself who has a very active 18month old that she is watching at the same time.  Jackson was walking, climbing, and getting into everything.  

When  Joaquin did wake up,  I would hold him and he would stared at me.    He would study my face and I just loved touching his nose with my nose.    I love his eyes. I thought he had my eyes. 

I declared it each time I saw him, much to my daughters amusement. A small way,  when I pass on, a little bit of me is still visible to the world. My legacy, if you will. 

In just a few weeks, I have seen that they are not my eyes.  I think they belong to his paternal grandmother.  blah

Sorry a little green here. 

Joaquin is still beautiful no matter what shape his eyes are.  He is still my angel.

It was glorious though that for a few days one of my grandchildren had something that was from me.

  1. Little Joaquin is so handsome. I'm glad he's so good for you. Most of my kids look like my husband, so I'm guessing my future grandkids will be mostly him too.

  2. Grumpy Grateful Mom - Funny you do all the physical work and they look entirely like their dad!?!

  3. He is so adorable! My kids all look like my husband too. So not fair!

  4. TripleZmom - Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Some men get all the luck!! That's why I was hoping one of my grandkids had something of me. Oh well :)


Thank you for leaving a comment. I do enjoy reading your thoughts :)
