Memories.

Olive ran into the kitchen a few minutes ago with this photograph.

I asked her who it was, she said “grampa and mama”.

Snow baby.

Olive absolutely loves the snow. She begs “get down” when I take her outside. She calls it “knows”. She will run over to the slider, look out onto the deck and point “knows?” And she will look at me. Waiting for me to say snow so she can clap at the excitement of me understanding her words.
I ask her every morning “where’s grampa?” And she will look up at his picture with the biggest smile. God I miss him so much. I hate that he is missing all of this.We tell Olive every day “you grampa’s girl”, just like he always said and she responds “yeah”.

I love you.

I love you.This is Olive’s new sentence. She started saying it on Thursday. The day dad passed away. And now she says it all the time. When we walk by she will say I love you and just now I heard Brandon laughing and Olive said “I love you” to him. Last night I recorded her on video. Its the sweetest words coming from grampa’s girl and they are so comforting.

Today I went through Brandon and Olive’s clothes. Packing up all of the 12 month and 6/7’s. I always avoid it because I think back to how little they were and how much bigger they have already grown. I sighed big time and got very emotional when I came across the shirt Olive wore at her first Birthday party at dads. I will pass Brandon and Olive’s clothing on to their cousins. Time passes by so quickly.

Sundays were always spent at dads and today we are feeling that void. Tomorrow we don’t want to think about. His funeral.
