Will adores his grandparents. His Poppy (Brad's dad) keeps him for us during the week while we work. His Gigi is there a couple of days a week, too, and poor Poppy gets forgotten about even though he probably spends more waking hours with him than any of us do. Nobody else seems to exist if Gigi is in the room! It is really sweet to see him with any of his grandparents because they and Will light up equally.
Will doesn't get to see his Nana or Pop (my parents) too often even though we live pretty close. A few weeks ago we went to see Betty Jo (my grandmother) and he got lots of Nana time. We spent the night and I got sick the next day and was unable to care for him (Nana to the rescue!). Betty Jo has been quite ill lately and my mom has spent a lot of time in Corinth. Unfortunately, Betty Jo is back in the hospital again and is not doing well at the moment. I would like to go see her again but she is in ICU and neither Will or I need to be in that area. My traveling days will soon come to an end as I approach the end of my pregnancy and I will be on call the next 2 weekends, so I don't know when I will be able to see her again.
Here are some pictures from the day we went to see Betty Jo in August. I didn't get any pictures of my grandmother because she is quite particular about being 'ready' for pictures! Will had a lot of fun with his Nana in Betty Jo's hospital room and I'm sure it lifted the patient's spirits seeing her youngest great-grandchild.
