Baby: IF topic

Well, finally an Illustration Friday topic a grandma can relate to!
Here's a painting that I drug out and played with digitally of my first grand-baby:

And I must post the lyrics to Bobby McFerrin's song, aptly titled "baby", because, as I've said before, words almost immediately turn into songs in my warped mind, and this is the one that's in there now.

baby runnin' everywhere,
baby runnin' here & there,
baby lookin' what we do,
baby watchin' want to do it too.

baby listenin' what we say,
baby walkin', talkin' want to play,
playin', growin', you an me to be,
have you thought of what you're makin' baby up to be.

mama treat your baby tenderly,
papa bounce your baby on your knee,
tell your baby stories, play your baby games,
teach your baby, sharin' makin' love your aim.

what we gonna leave our babies when we leave this place,
how we gonna help our babies take our place,
'cause baby lookin' what we do,
baby watchin' want to do it too.

Here is also a Warhol style graphic I did of my grandson:

And, since this is a mostly supposed to be a tapestry blog, here's the Spring seasons tapestry, which is called "A Time to Wait", of my daughter-in-law expecting our first grandchild!

And if this isn't enough 'Baby' for you, just let me know! This grandma has close to 7,000 images in iPhoto right now, and many of them are our 'babies'!
