I always find it amazing how quickly a newborn goes from being little more than a completely helpless baby to a (still) little human being who can react to and interact with their environment. Today our almost-4-month-old grandson, Graydon, came over for a visit (he's 17 lbs and doesn't drive yet, so yes, his parents brought him). Of course we had a great time with him - it's always great as grandparents because someone else gets to feed and clean him and take him home again :)
His surname, translated literally from Dutch, means 'the sweet one'. I think you'll agree, based on this photo, that he lived up to his name and underscored the point in my first sentence (that's his dad's dessert he's eyeballing).

Now, I don't know if you're familiar with Scott's blog 'Finding Another View'. Scott celebrates and invites others to celebrate Sundays by posting a sunset shot. Where I live we're not blessed with fabulous sunset opportunities on the same regularity he is, but I thought this evening's was worthy of being posted. So to make up for lost opportunities I'll post 2 shots.
