Conversations with Hope

Hope, did you take chocolate off the counter?
I don't remember
OK, in case you did, please take off your jacket
What?
And don't eat it on the couch
Nana, come here, I made a mistake


Nana, Look! I'm making hair for you


You look so pretty Hope
Thank You, I'm going to a party
I love your shoes
Are you going to take a picture?
I'll get my camera
Hurry Nana, this won't last


Let's take your juice upstairs and get ready for bed
I'm not tired
It's late, we've been playing all day
I want to play more



And On We Go

Yes, indeed, they are precious moments, treasure them all -- and I know you do! Such delightful captures! I love them! Big hugs to both you and Hope!

Man. I can't believe how big she is already. Such a gorgeous kid.

Reb said...

She is getting soooo big! What a beautiful child she is.

Ron said...

Dianne, what a precious, precious post!

Totally put a smile on my heart!

Can Hope get anymore beautiful?

That last photo is BEYOND stunning.

(((( Hope )))))

And please tell Hope that when Uncle Ronnie finally meets her, he'll bring her a bar of chocolate because it's one of his favorite sweets!

X and hugs to you and Hope!

I think I need a nap too.

LL Cool Joe said...

She is damn adorable! I love how she said she couldn't remember taking the chocolate. :D

Btw. Thanks for your last comment on my blog. :) I am a born again Christian too, (for over 30 years) but I'd like to believe that modern Christianity has come along way in the last few years, especially on subjects like homosexuality. :)

Granny Annie said...

She is beautiful and very fortunate to have you as an encourager in her life.

Jeni said...

Love your pictures as well as how you tie them into stories about Hope. She sure is one sweet little princess.
The getting ready for bedtime -which for Maya and Kurt is supposed to be 8 p.m. (occasionally, they are still up at 8:30 but that's a bit on the rare side.) Inevitably though, when I usually begin about 7:45 telling them it's time to get their jammies on, Kurt will almost always respond by saying "No yet." But to get the full impact of those two words from him, say it in a bit of a sing-song voice and the tone must rise a bit in the middle! Cracks me up every time.

Your little Hope is such an adorable child – what a treasure. I am sorry about your doctor’s appointments. Not all doctors are bad though. Mine is from India and he is kind, thoughtful and takes his time talking to me. But I went through at least 5 doctors before I found him. My daughter and her husbands are doctors, her a neurologist for epilepsy, and him an anesthesiologist. My daughter listens and cares for her patients (many children); she works at least 12 hour days at the hospital and often more, including week-ends because she spends so much time to make sure they are OK. But I have had terrible stuck-up doctors in my life – some who treated me like I was an imbecile – many of these types are in the field just for the money. I hope your cats are fine. My little cat Mitsou passed away last month. I can’t talk about it yet.

Linda said...

Ah, such a sweetie she is.

You're such a good grammy!

Sallie (FullTime-Life.com said...

She's an angel.

Halcyon said...

A sweet snippet of conversations! Don't you love how kids think? :)
Your granddaughter is a smart one and cute too!

Lowell said...

You give me hope as does our great-grandson. She's a delight and I think she is very proud of her grandmother! May love and light be with her all the days of her life!

Gina Duarte said...

Hope is becoming so wise. The last one is a photo she will love so much one day and love you so much for everything you do and everything you stand for. :-)

Sending much love to you and your family.

mic said...

That's a lot of cute!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Your grand daughter is so precious!

Jo said...

I love little angels...especially the ones with a bit of fire in them. That last pic--I could faint from the cuteness.

MyMaracas said...

"Hurry Nana, this won't last"... indeed, indeed. And what a wonderful idea, saving those little snippets of things she says. How I wish I had done that.

Emille said...

Aren't kids adorable when they sleep? I can see you enjoy being a Nana:) it never caught my attention that you had another blog, Dianne!
