Papa Randy came to visit over the weekend and Charlie had such a wonderful time! Our house is so much brighter from his time here--and it's not just due to the new lighting he installed for us :) As a doula I love to see the role grandparents play in the beginning of a grandchild's life. I often get moments to leave mom and dad to labor together and hang out with family in the waiting room. There's so much excitement and anticipation! The chance to love on a child in their family without the responsibility of parenting, who wouldn't be excited! The bond is instant and no amount of time or distance seems to inhibit the love grandkids and grandparents share. Here are a couple shots from Papa's visit I just had to share!
