Grandma's Lil' Bug Layout

Sadly Scott met his maternal Grandmother during the funeral of his Great Grandmother. We tried to get to her before she died but she was more than 500 miles a way and she died before we could get the car packed.

 Scott was 2 months early so he was small, plus a side effect of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is small size. And he continues to struggle with being small 20 years later. This picture is of Scott and Grandma meeting for the first time. The first thing she said, "Oh my goodness you are such a cute lil' bug!"

Unfortunately Grandma has also died from diabetes complications.  So this picture is extra special to Scott.

Journaling: Meeting Grandma for the first time/ Because you were so tiny she called you her "little bug".
