BEEP! BEEP!


'God is forgiving' is the Hebrew definition of the name Ian. 'A happy blessing' is the interpretation Bible scholars give the Hebrew name Ashyr. All this Ozark farm chick knows is that I was happier than a gopher on diggin' day when he was born into our family. He makes my heart sing!!! Baby Ian blessed us with his arrival 7/8/2009 and has been a babblin' bright eyed bundle of joy ever since. The little guy celebrated the big number one last month with a grand party filled with cake presents and loads of love.
Of course this rockin' Grandma and Gramps had to get something every one year old needs...his first car! Yep, complete with a key which turns the motor (err-err), a cell phone that rings, a shifter that makes shiftin' sounds, a radio that plays his favorite tunes, a gas hole that glug-glugs and a horn that goes beep, beep, beep! Mr. "Lighting McQueen can be used as a push toy or driven as a car. Now, doesn't that just curl your toes?
This sweet talkin' boy took to this mix between a Corvette and Dodge Viper that has the characteristics of Steve McQueen and the voice of Owen Wilson like a duck to water on a hot summer day. Ian's sweet babblin' jibbers are becoming sweet, sweet words. When eatin', and let me tell ya'll...the kid loves to eat, he'll say "more peese and kank kou." It's just never too early to be polite. The little fella knows who butters his bread and bakes his biscuits. Why, just the other day he told his sweet mama while she was puttin' on her face, "mama pitty!" Learn young, don't they??? Heeehehehehe........
Yep, he's a toddlin' charmer who can down a bowl of strawberry short-cake faster than a bee stung stallion can move to the other side of the horse pen. God blessed us richly when he added this one to his creations and our hearts. He'll be wavin' bye-bye as that old 1958 novelty tune of the Playmates is playin ' on his car radio and you can hear him leaving 'cause his horn goes beep-"BEEP! BEEP!

  6. This charming toddler, Ian, definitely deserves the red car with the accessories he got from his loving Grandma & Grandpa.

    How sweet is his talking: pees (please), kank you (thank you) pitty (pretty)! I'm sure he'll enjoy reading this post on him when he's grown-up and will be grateful to you, Nezzy, for writing it.

    Happy belated Birthday to Ian!

  11. You have made me even more excited, if possible, to meet our newest little boy due in about a month. Ian looks like he has it all goin'on. What a fun time he'll have with that car....almost as much fun as you had getting it for him. He is as cute as can be.

    ReplyDelete
  12. He is adorable. So much fun watching that little personality develop. He will be a blast and I'm sure will always be happy for the gifts and goodies that Granny and Gramps shower on him. But look out, I've heard that they grow up quickly. Enjoy.

  28. Grandsons are so special and they do learn those lady killing tricks early.
    Maybe that's why men use them when they are grown because they worked so well on their mommys and grandmas !!!!!

  29. Happy 1st Birthday Ian! It's easy to see why he warms your heart, Nezzy. What a happy, handsome guy.

    The car is the perfect gift! He'll be riding and playing and walking in no time! And for years to come, he'll be seeing this 1st birthday and your car and remember how special you are.

    Thanks for sharing the joy!

  32. What a fun Grandma you are! Have his parents forgiven you for the "noisy" toy yet? Boy is he a "talker" already! Watch Out!

    ReplyDelete
  33. What a precious little cutie! Looks like the birthday party was a lot of fun. Not everyone gets a new car for their birthday...what fun he'll have with it! Thanks for sharing the pix.

  34. You have every right to be the proud Grandma for this little cutie!

    I can't tell what he likes better - pushing or riding, but I think he needs to fasten his seatbelt - looks like he's headin' for trouble in that last pic!

    And I adore the way he's looking at his "1" candle - like, "What is this thing, why is it on fire, and why are they putting it on my tray?"

    Have a fantastic week, and keep those shingles at bay!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh Nezzy, THAT WAS SOOOOOOO CUTE and well written...you are so talented! Your little Ian is a sweet little man, and what a great first car! Make sure it is tucked away and saved so that when he is 16 and gets his license, he can see it and know how much you enjoyed seeing him poot-poot about! HEEEEEE, what a hoot...I didn't know the meaning of the name Ian...one of my favorite all-time students is named Ian. Ezzy sweetheart, thank you for coming over my way dearest...I could see you coming by on a horse, my favorite animal, and hitching 'em up my front door! You are amazingly beautiful and so rich in God's humor, love and kindness. ENJOY THE WEEK!!! Anita

  39. Awww, I just want to kiss his cute little cheeks! He's already learning how to charm his mommy!! What a blessing to watch him and his milestones. The car fits him well, until he's ready to hit the grandparents up for something that goes a little faster!

  40. I always get such a kick out of reading your very own sayings such as "happier than a gopher on diggin' day". You rock my socks off. You are so blessed to be the grandma to this darling child.

  41. How sweet! My kids (who are now 21,28 & 30)had a car that looked like that, but it wasn't as fancy. It didn't have all the bells, whistles and cell phones :). They are so precious at that age.

Gee, I hope you get some rain and cooler weather. This has been a hot one girl!
