Crawly things can be the "niggets
" of unfamiliar spirits that go bump in the blind darkness of night. Other creepy crawly subjects can be made up of things like cantankerous cockroach cooties, slithering slippery slimy snakes, spooky spindly spiders or even the black lace thong on a farm chick's derriere runnin
' wild~eyed cattle up and down these hills and hollers but my present favorite crawly thing is my youngest grandson, baby Ian.
During Sunday breakfast a week ago Hubby asked if I'd like to make a trip to Ash Grove after church. Well baby, do frogs eat flies??? Silly boy had to know that question the no-brainer
of the century . My answer was," Yep, yes, affirmative, amen most definitely positively I want to go plant my very special noisy grandma kisses on those plump little cheeks. Not lettin
' any grass grow under my feet, I started gathering things like a wild woman 'cause it seemed like a coons age since I'd snuggled the little fella up. A lot can change in a month ya know?
After church services and stoppin
' in Springfield to split a juicy giant burger at Ruby Tuesday's we headed toward Ash Grove. A girls gotta take nourishment, ya know? Walking into the breezeway there he was in his mama's arms....a smiling bright~eyed bundle of love smackin
' the glass in the door with his chubby little digits lettin
' grandma know we've been spotted. Ian's two sharp little teeth glimmered through his grins in the sunlight. Oh, it was good to have him back in my arms again with warm cozy snuggles, wide faced smiles and open mouth bird kisses but what was up with Mr. Independent? The kid is on the move showin
' off his newest motor skills. Up on all fours the coordination for the full throttle crawl isn't there yet but the little booger can travel doin
' the 'worm' faster than a big fat caterpillar bein
' chased by a curious hungry cat.
This grandma chick sang, played, kissed, bounced and took pictures gettin
' my grandma fix. It was a wonderful day! In 1971 the songwriting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland (HDH
) wrote a song sang by 8th
Day "You've Got to Crawl (Before You Walk) not long before the group fizzled. This rockin
' grandma can be heard belting' out the lyrics loud and clear to baby Ian, "you've got to crawl before you walk back into these arms of mine." Until next time baby.... 'cause "You've Got to Crawl (Before You Walk)!!!
Oh Nezzy I do believe he is just the sweetest little baby, but I guess you already knew that:)ReplyDelete
Hi Nezzy, what a handsome little cowboy. I'll bet it won't be long before he gets around well enough to keep his mama running to catch up.ReplyDelete
My niece just had her second daughter one week ago today. It'll be a while before she's going anywhere under her own power.
oh girlfriend! I can't wait til I have a grandbaby to gooble up!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!ReplyDelete
So sweet! I enjoyed reading this. You have such a way with words that makes me smile.ReplyDelete
what a sweetie!ReplyDelete
Oh Nezzy,they make it all worthwhile,don't they? There is nothing like a baby........the closest thing to heaven I believe. Have a wonderful day.ReplyDelete
He is so stinkin' cute!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a blast.
girl you've got a way with words!!! Lardy, lardy that was some mighty fine story telling about that youngin there. Hm, wish I had just an ounze of it in me. Maybe I should do some word hacking from you!?? jkReplyDelete
What a cutie he is. How old? Maybe we should get him and some of these little Texas girls we have down here together.
I'm glad you had your Fix. Ian, your grandson and "your present crawling thing" is the sweet, big Rate on the Investment in your daughter, his Mom.ReplyDelete
He's gorgeous and so is your descriptive language!
Oh he is a looker already! So glad you had a good visit, they are little for such a short time that you have to enjoy every minute you can! I like baby kind of crawly things too! Have a wonderful week Nezzy! :) :)ReplyDelete
Awww..you are SUCH a grandma!!! I love it!ReplyDelete
What a little doll!
Isn't being a grandma just GRAND! What a cutie patootie your little guy is.ReplyDelete
Yay for the grandma fix! And you got some pics to hold you over till the next time.ReplyDelete
Ohhhh what a cutie pie! And you are a lucky grammy.... that grandpa had a wonderful idea! What a wonderful day for you --- a donkey out? An escape artist?ReplyDelete
Love this post. What a handsome young man!ReplyDelete
Ian will be on the move before you know it if he is already up on all fours....and then he will be up and running. You are going to have to get back to see him before a month is up this time. I can just picture his sweet little open mouthed kisses. Those bright little eyes look like they would melt a grandma's heart for sure.ReplyDelete
OMG - he's just the cutest thing ever...lucky YOU!!! And lucky him to have such a loveable Grandma!ReplyDelete
He's so close to being on the go! You can see how excited he is! What a precious little guy!ReplyDelete

What a cutie!!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy you got to see those sweet little ones...I know how seeing mine is just the greatest! The pictures are adorable.ReplyDelete
Isn't he just adorable? I love that he crawled right out of his sock. :)ReplyDelete
Precious!!!! We still have a couple of years before we get our first grand and from watching my friends, it truly is nothing short of grand!ReplyDelete
Oh my. How absolutely precious! What a delightful, unexpected gift for you. Thanks for sharing these sweet, sweet, sweet pictures!ReplyDelete
oh he's a cutie. they turn you to mush, Nez. It's a wonder I can stand on my mushy legs after being with the sweetness of mine.ReplyDelete
Getting that grandbaby fix is always a good thing! Especially when one is as cute as Ian!ReplyDelete
Awwwww...he's adorable!!! No wonder you were all giddy at the thought of seeing that sweet boy!!!ReplyDelete
He is adorable!!!! I love reading your posts!ReplyDelete
I can see how you must feel. I wanted to grab him out of my monitor and kiss his pudgy cute cheeks. So adorable. My oldest is 22, but I'm not ready to be a grandma yet. Give me a few years alone with hubby. Still have a 16-year-old at home.ReplyDelete
"...or even the black lace thong on a farm chick's derriere..." Crawly things indeed! You made me laugh out loud with that one. :)ReplyDelete
Your grandson is SO adorable. Just look at those big round eyes. Oh, sweetness!
Oh, what a cutie pie he is!ReplyDelete
Glad you were able to get your "Grandma fix."
Have a wonderful Tuesday.
Funny post, and what a cutie!ReplyDelete

Awwwww, I'm so glad you got some Grandma time! Those little ones grow up so quickly and who can resist the CHEEKS! I get to see my youngest sweet grand this weekend and I can hardly wait!ReplyDelete
GRANDBABY IS JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR LOVE!!!ReplyDelete
HAVE A BLESSED DAY.
What a sweet pictures and what a sweet story...Nothing like the littles...and they make my dayReplyDelete
How absolutely adorable! I can see why you'd wanta smother him with kisses.ReplyDelete
"Niggets." Had to look that one up. Didn't find 'niggets' but found niggling (petty, bothersome in a petty way) with synonyms like inconsequential, measly, piddling, trifling, trivial, and picayune.
So, what's your explanation of 'niggets?'
He sure is an adorable bundle of goodness!ReplyDelete
Mornin Nezzy! Boy, is he ever a little cutie pie!!! ... and those chubby little cheeks sure do look kissable! You're sooo blessed, Sweetie!! xo Paulette ;)ReplyDelete
He is just one of the cutest babies I have ever seen. I know you love him to death! I have discovered that grandbabies are just the best thing since ice cream.ReplyDelete
There ain't nothin' like a Grandma fix!!! Just gotta love that!!!ReplyDelete
He is so adorable!!ReplyDelete
That baby! Is SO Cute!!!!!ReplyDelete
Very cute. I love the idea of having a grandbaby, but I sure hope it's not anytime soon!ReplyDelete
He's simply irresistible!!! No wonder you love him so!!! So glad you were able to have such a wonderful day! You are obviously an awesome grandma!!! Love, Janine XOReplyDelete
Awwww...he's A-DORABLE! I'll bet those chubby little cheeks of his were filled with Grandma's kisses on your visit! ;)ReplyDelete
Whoo Hoo - he is a doll! Just wait until he is up on 2 legs. He will be a rocket; enjoy the creepin' crawlin' stage!ReplyDelete
Take care -
HE IS SO CUTE!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I see we have new grandbabies in common! Mine is 2 months old today! He is in AZ and I'm in WA... its just too far! and such sadness for me as I can only visit him daily thru pictures on my camera phone! LOVE the chubbyness!ReplyDelete

Stay well and love you
You remember the routine that Flip Wilson and Reverend LeRoy did about the Church having to crawl before it could walk? If not, I'll bet it's on YouTube. This just reminded me of that old album. xoxo susanReplyDelete
Nezzy, He is so precious. I know what you mean about the love of a Grandchild... I have my first grandbaby and he is perfect. Nothing like holding him. He is made for snuggling:)ReplyDelete
I am feeling pretty good. Been shopping and preparing for our new blessing. I could not ever wait until close to term, I have to be ready lol. Thank You for checking on me. Love ya,

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog. xo
What a cutie!!!!ReplyDelete
Granbabies are the "grandest" thing ever there was!!ReplyDelete
I sure know that feeling of holding a baby tight in my arms. Nothing like it on the face of the earth!!!ReplyDelete
Little Ian is a darling little guy.
What a cute snuggle bug he is! These are some of the best moments in our lives. Enjoy him!ReplyDelete
109 comments, you must be superwoman, or super grandma. You have such a sweet grandchild. My yuccas had died out last year so I dug all the dead stuff out of there and my oh my they came up all new. Yes a tire would do the job. Or at least give them a jolt as they drove over the area. Thanks for stopping by!!!!!ReplyDelete
He is so precious!ReplyDelete
You sure do have a way with words. LOLReplyDelete
I like getting my pop pop fix too. They change so much between visits, it seems that every times I see them there is something new.
What a sweet face. I could just nibble on those cheeks. Love your descriptions about creepy crawly things, too. Nothing creepy about this cutie.ReplyDelete
That's a seriously cute baby! I'm a grandma too, so I know these things!ReplyDelete
Grandchildren are a blessing; only problem is they grow so fast; my youngest one is now 12, almost 13! Thank you for your visit and enjoy!ReplyDelete
Makes me want to reach right into the computer screen and scoop him up for a big hug.ReplyDelete
Do not hurry that walking part too fast, enjoy these oh too short moments of lower level transportation.
Oh Nezzy Sweetie...ReplyDelete
I absolutely adore little Ian. Love those chubby little cheeks and those BIG cow eyes. Boy do they ever talk to ya. Love it.
Little dimpled hands and I can just see him crawling around and bobbing into the world. Everything so new and exciting. Before you know it, he will be pulling up to things and standing soon.
He is just precious sweetie. I thank you so much for sharing today. Beautiful.
Have a gorgeous Sunday. Country hugs and much love...Sherry
Nezzy, how are you? GREAT pictures and what a cutie! I hope you are well. Always good to her from you, LadybirdReplyDelete
Hi Nezzy. Oh how I wished my little girl had crawled but unfortunately she just got straight up and walked. I love watching kids crawl, its so cute!ReplyDelete
What a great day you had! He's adorable!ReplyDelete
He's so adorable!ReplyDelete
My Book Giveaway!: http://bit.ly/ceJwFj
What a sweet Grandma you are! He sure is lucky! If ya lived closer could we borrow you sometimes? Babies can't get enough snuggl'n especially with triplets running under foot!ReplyDelete
Such a sweetheart!ReplyDelete
What a precious baby! You seem like one joyful grandma!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my first blog party. It was nice to "meet" you!
Have a blessed week!
I was thinkin' he sounded about the age he's be wantin' to be loose doin' his own thing instead of settin' 'round for granny to smooch on his face. They're so cute at that age.ReplyDelete
thanks for visiting my blog. Your comment drew me to yours and I enjoyed your grandbaby post. Yes I had my "fix" this past weekend. She did seem like she connected sheet music to playing. Funny. When she saw her great grandmother all in pink she said "pink" and then "I like jewelry" and then, "Can I wear it?" In no time she was sporting her GGM's pink beads. And, babies DO need to crawl before they walk. That's why tummy time is important with all the back to sleep stuff (I'm a newborn baby nurse.) :-) Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Hi Nezzy! I'm living through your words since we've just had our first grand baby! Your little dumpling is so adorable.ReplyDelete
Be a sweetie,
Your words are ending my day with a smile.ReplyDelete
You had me snickering at adding a "black lace thong on a farm chick's derriere" to the list of creepy crawly things... where do you come up with this stuff?
What a sweetheart...he's darling my friend...Hugs and smiles Gl♥riaReplyDelete
I smile every time I see that sweet babies face!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for your sweet visit...you always brighten my day!
All us grandmas need our grandma fix don't we. I'm glad you live close enough to just drive there.ReplyDelete
"You gotta crawl before you walk" reminds me of my Nana because I always remember her saying that.ReplyDelete
Ian is gorgeous! I thought he was a girl he's so cute!
Nezzy, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a fun comment about the 4th grade fieldtrip. Your post on the grandbaby is great. I can feel the grandma love way up here in MN.ReplyDelete
Adorable...what a sweetpea. xoxReplyDelete
I am looking forward to those grandbaby days come September. JackieReplyDelete
I always love reading your posts! Such a clever farm chick! ;) And that is one cute grandbaby you got there! TFS!!ReplyDelete
truly God is is good. precious...xxReplyDelete
Just stopping by to see if you are about, and have time to share a story and a cup of tea... Sending you much love, Janine XOReplyDelete
I can smell that sweet baby clear out here!!! So cute!ReplyDelete
What a cutie... It makes me want to have another baby even though I already have 2year old twins who just got out of the crawling stage.ReplyDelete
Goodmorning and TGIF!!!! I just emailed the Pioneer Woman my picture of the iris! Thanks for the heads up on that!!! She is one cool chick!ReplyDelete
Thank-you for the sweet comments Nezzy! Your get well wishes mean a lot to me. Have a fine week-end and enjoy your cute grandbabies!ReplyDelete
He is adorable!!! You must have a ball with him. This is such a great age!!ReplyDelete
Good post. I enjoyed reading it. Amazing photos, too. Such a cute baby. Thanks for sharing it to us, Nezzy.ReplyDelete
May you have a blessed Sunday tomorrow. :)
wow such a cute lil baby...ReplyDelete
god bless him
I'd be smothering that precious one with tons of kisses too. Oh my, made my heart melt. My great nephew just started full time daycare with me (I run a home daycare business). He will be one this month. Tonight he smothered me with lots of wet kisses (baby drool,lol) before leaving.ReplyDelete
