|Nonna and her precious granddaughter, Kellyanne Elizabeth|
I had heard some of my friends being called Mimi, Cici, Gigi, Nanna (short a sound), & Nana (nah-nah), and perhaps a few names that I just can't recall at the moment. But the name that stuck out to me came from one of my co-workers who is Italian. Her grandchildren call her Nonna, which is Italian for grandmother. I just love to here her say, Nonna (no - nah)--of course, it might sound so lovely because of her beautiful Italitan accent. Anyway, I liked it so much, that I chose to be called Nonna myself. Besides, I've always liked to be different than everyone else. Seems like I knew a lot of Mimi's and Nanna's. But, a lot will depend on what Miss Kellyanne and Mr. Lachlan can and will say. Whatever they choose, I know that I will love it. I'm so very proud to be a grandmother, however they choose to say it!
God has blessed me with two precious grandchildren. This is a picture of me with Kellyanne. Obviously, I didn't take it. My daughter Kelly took it. But I thought it was too special for it not to be my photo of the day. I hope soon to post a photo of me and Lachlan, Clint's son. His birthday is coming up later this month and, just maybe, we will get to take a road trip for his birthday.
Well, it's nite nite for this grandmother! I know that I'm behind on visiting all of my 365 neighbors' blogs, but I hope to visit each of your sites over the next couple of days.
Goodnight and God Bless you,
Nonna (aka, Cheryl)
