Many Summer Faces of Adam

Yesterday I should have written about our youngest, (the baby) grandson.   I was there when he took his first breath, and heard his first scream which brought tears of joy to my eyes.  He was a trouper and struggled through some transitional breathing right after he was born..boys will be boys..his Mother was madder than a hatter because her labor progressed so fast that there was no time for an epidural..she was a tad cranky…and he was so beautiful..scratch that ..handsome.

Adam was nine years old yesterday..it only seems like yesterday that he was born.  He was so tiny when we were all shocked to the core by 9/11.  His Mother and I both held him and cried that day, because we knew that his life would not be at all like ours had been, our innocence and sense of freedom was forever changed.

Adam Many faces five Adam is a character, and Grandmothers are exceptionally boring people.

Adam many faces six We discussed the life cycle and the habitat of Night Crawlers.

Adam Many faces three He likes to swim, and is part fish.  I watched from the shore, he did ask me to join him one evening.  “C’mon Grandma put your suit on, it will be fun!”  I knew he would want me to jump off of the diving platform..and no one should see their Grandma either crying or wetting her swimsuit.

A few weeks ago, I asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up.  He replied “ I want to work at Wal-Mart and help people find stuff.”  A little later, we were at our old resort and we explained to him that his Mama grew up there and that there were lots of cottages and a house there a long time ago, and that his Mother hated it there at first..but then she grew to love it.   There is one log home there now.  Adam said “I think I will buy this place some day for my Mom.”  I hope he moves past the Wal-Mart helping people idea.

Adam Many faces four Sometimes he hides from me when I have my camera on him, it is like he can tell when I am focused on him..he is smiling here..I can tell!

Adams Many faces two Sometimes he is easily bored.

  4. He's a fine looking young man. And it's easy to see he will be making more of himself than a Walmart greeter. But he wants to help people, who can argue with that?

  6. He is a fine young man and he is very fortunate that his grandma knows the value of photographs for telling one's life story...one day his bride and his children will be so grateful for all these wonderful pictures you are taking of his early years!
