A Moment of Sweetness

Da Goddess @ 03:04

King Arthur loves his little grand-daughter with all his heart. He sings to her, engages her in all sorts of teaching moments, and is always looking for something sweet to get her, like the sunglasses she’s wearing in these photos. He spoils her with love and loving gifts. It’s lovely to witness.

She’s a very good baby. Lady M and Lord R have done a great job getting her on a schedule and keeping her on one. They’ve taken her to restaurants and even a hockey game (her outfit was ADORABLE! — another gift from her papa). Unfortunately, Baby E is at that stage where she is sometimes frightened of people she doesn’t see much. Especially men. During their little hug and hold playtime, E was fine with her papa holding her and singing and playing, but later cried up a storm when put in his arms. At least we had photos to prove that she DID enjoy him earlier in the day.

A quiet moment for the two royals

We spent the afternoon with Lady M, Lord R, and Baby Princess E before mommy and daddy went out for the evening. We wanted to make sure the little Princess wasn’t going to cry the whole time. As I said, she did fine with her papa earlier in the day, but melted down later. With me, she was absolutely perfect. We have an arrangement, the Princess and I. I hold her and play with her and make her giggle, give her a bottle, change her diapers, and basically do everything I possibly can to make her comfortable, and, in return, she is a delight for me. Plus, it helps that I possess a little baby whispering magic. (I was born with the gift. My whole family has it, including LD and Mojo.)

Lady M and Lord R had a nice night out. KA and I had a very nice night with the baby. It was a win-win for all. Plus, I get grandma credits. Someday, yes, someday, I fully expect LD and Mojo to have their own families and I’m practicing all I can.


  1. Awwww… she’s just as precious as she could possibly be!! Greetings, Princess E!

    Babies do the meltdown thing all the time, which is why some people (me!) find them unnerving. ;)

    You’re a great mom and will be a wonderful beyond wonderful grandma!!

  2. I don’t mind the meltdowns. I completely understand them and roll with it when they happen. Early training, I guess.

    The Princess is simply wonderful. She’s one of the happiest babies I’ve ever met and a delight to be around. I love our babysitting adventures.

  3. Guess it’s because I never actually raised a child… I can live through it, but if I don’t know why it’s happening; i.e. wet, hungry… then it freaks me out a bit.
    I know… sometimes they just want to cry! ;)

    All the happy babies I’ve known have gone on to be happy children… probably some sort of Old Wives Tale in there somewhere… but I hope Princess E will be happy all her days!

  4. Cooing works wonders, Pam.

    And as far as determining which cry is which, you simply start with the diaper and work your way up to the food.
