I have probably mentioned before that Max has FOUR wonderful grandparents who love him very much (and love to babysit, yay!). But what I did not mention is that Max has FOUR great grandmothers (and one great grandfather) who also love him very much. He is such a lucky guy.
The first is named Nana, one of the several "Nanas" in Max's life. She is my dad's mom. Nana has an incredible memory and always tells us great stories. When Max went to visit her and slept most of the time, she told us a story about when my dad was born. Apparently, after a few weeks, my grandfather said, "when is he going to DO something?" ha ha.
Max also visited another Nana, Eric's mom's mom. She lives in a nursing home and when we went to visit her, it was clear she had been eagerly awaiting our visit. Basically everyone who worked there was like "where's the baby?" "is this Max?!" She also had several pictures of Max up on her wall. Max was famous before he even arrived.
Eric's other grandmother, his dad's mom, goes by "Grammy." Grammy made Max a beautiful blue blanket that he loves. She also gave him a bottle on Easter, and he was very happy to take it from her. This may not seem like a big accomplishment but Max is very resistant to the bottle and will only take it from certain people in certain environments that he likes :)
Finally, the last great-grandmother that Max went to visit is my mom's mom. She lives in Connecticut, so Max got to experience his first trip out of the state! In Connecticut he got to meet Grandma, Grandpa and my aunt Paula :) Of all of Max's great-grandmothers, Grandma is the only one who has no other great-grandchildren. When we told her that she is a great grandma now, she said "Don't tell anyone!" ha ha.
Grandparents and great-grandparents are the best!
