I did not post Saturday because the internet was down again!
Our grandson, Neel's birthday was yesterday.
He became the big two.
He is already a character, and is a bundle of energy.
He is finally starting to speak, but because he will be tri-lingual I think he is somewhat
confused as to which language to use!
Each year on our grandsons birthdays I paint them something, so that when they move away from home, they will each have a wall of art that reflects their lives.
This year, Christina asked me to paint a portrait of his "new" giraffe.
They have named him Johnny and Neel is already in love with him.
Johnny is "new" to Neel, but not new to the Banerjee family.
You see, this precious gift came from his grandmother, Sumita in India.
Originally, Johnny was a toy that Bappa's sister had when she was small.
She passed away several years ago.
I can imagine Mom, (her name) is smiling down at her nephews antics with this new part of his life.
I am so glad Sumita thought enough of him to share it for his birthday!
On to today's piece.
Another birthday of sorts.
Today finds our beaches celebrating the hatching of baby loggerhead sea turtles.
We did not have many nests this year and some were washed.
Every baby turtle making it to the surf is a cause for celebration!
