I know I haven't Blogged in a while!   I haven't been feeling real well.  And I have been real tired.  Probably due to my PPH!  So I haven't been online very much the past few days.
I  have been busy burning some of my pix from my computer onto CD's.  Well, the ones that I don't already have on CD's from my camera. 
I didn't realize how many pix I needed to burn.  And I have had a good time looking back at all the pix of my grand babies when they were born and when they were tiny!  Some have really made me laugh, some made me cry. So I had to get up from the computer and take a break, but finally got through those sad snapshots! 
When our little Alex was born, his head was mis-shaped from the birth, and it hurt me to look at our sweet baby!  So I asked the nurse in the nursery if it hurt him, and she said Yes, it did!  I remember every second of being in the nursery with little Alex and his Daddy right after baby was born!  Happiness at seeing baby for the first time quickly turned to terror as the doctor nor the nurses could get him breathing!  The nurses rushed baby Alex to the nursery with my son Alex right on their heals.  I didn't even realize that they had left so quickly because I was beside Jen while the doctor finished taking care of her! 

As soon as she was a taken care of I went to wait for my turn to see baby Alex in the nursery.  How scarey it was to see him with the IV and the oxygen and his poor little head, so big and looking so awful!  My son was still in there with him, and I had my camera so I asked Alex if I could take some pix and he just nodded.   This is his first baby.  How scared and worried he was!  I was worriedand my heart was breaking as I watched my son trying to take in all of what was going on with the baby.  We didn't say many words because words brought tears.  So I told Alex to put his finger down so baby could hold it, and to know that he was there.  Bless baby's heart.  Born out into the scarey world, not able to see because of the medicine they have to put in their little eyes, and probably the worst headache he will ever have in his life! 

Baby grabbed a hold of his Daddy's finger!  And at that moment I know that Alex had never known LOVE like he knew it right then!  As Alex leaned over into the tiny bassenett he whispered his love for his new son, and told him that everything was going to be alright!  And I cried. 
I put my hand down for baby to grab my finger, too.  And he did!  And I cried!

GOD is so awsome!  HE listened to our prayers we were silently praying and baby was able to come home, and didn't have to stay that long in the hospital!  It took a little while for his head to go back down to it's normal size.  But when you look at him today, you would never know there was any problems at birth!  Little Alex is a very healthy, very active and very funny 2 year old! 

As I passed from thoes pix onto the next album I have of little Alex, it is a week later, Valentine's Day!  And I got to watch him while his mommy and daddy went out for a  short evening alone! So, I got all fixed up for MY date with baby!  Grandpa got some good pix of us that night, too! 

I guess that's why I am so snapshot crazy!  Pictures aren't just pictures, they are precious memories that I have in my heart, captured in a photgraph to share! 
Our grand kids love to look at our photos.  They love to see, not only themselves but every one!   I think I am passing on my love of pictures, photos, snapshots, whatever you want to call them, to my kids and my grand kids! 
Every snapshot I have is a Treasure!
Every child and grand child are more precious than Diamonds or Gold! 
My most precious Treasures, my family!

GOD Bless ~  

The snapshot I choose for today is my son, Alex his wife Jen and our little Alex!  Taken in West Virginia on our vacation last year.
