Today we head home from Colorado. I have had the complete and utter joy of meeting grandson Luca and holding him a bunch. A crying baby is completely different for me as a grandmother--it is heart-wrenching, despite the fact that I know that is how babies communicate. We went on a dog walk with me pushing Luca in the stroller. He cried almost the whole time, and I nearly started crying, too. Little Luca is growing and wants to eat all the time. Mom and Dad are tired but ecstatic with their new family member.
It is time for us to head homeward, so the new parents have some time to regroup before the other set of grandparents, and a great-granddad, arrive. Once home, I will begin to plot my next visit, knowing that even in a few short weeks, Luca will have changed dramatically.
