Meet Braylon Arthur

Is it as hot and humid where you are now? All the rain that we've had was good since that made it cooler, but the heat is on again! 
  We really took advantage of those cool day by porch sitting, and enjoying the sound of kids laughing and playing in the park across the street. Now, it it quiet there, but the birds are singing pretty.
  This post is about a kid name Braylon...he's special because he is my baby sister's grandson...the first and only! Special because he came at a time when his nana needed him in her life.

You see, She was married to James' brother. Yes, we married brothers! Arthur died of the same heart condition that James had. Braylon's dad also has been diagnosed with this condition. 
  My sister, Arlette, really needed this little bright spot in her life during this hard time, to help her to cope with losing Arthur, her first love. She is reminded daily of Arthur, because little Braylon Arthur is the image of granddad!

This is Braylon's great grandma...my mom is 84 years old and is Braylon's sitter! Granny loves them all! This is little Darin she's holding there. Braylon calls her "Gan", and I will venture to say, he loves her just as much, or more. Can you say, wrapped around his little finger! Lol.

We all love this little guy and feels he's special too!

Talk about active...now that he is walking there are no boundaries! When I say just like his granddad, I mean in every way...it is scary!
  He is ahead developmentally and ahead with cognitive skills. He is around 14 months here and as you can see, a big guy! He loves to walk up to you, especially men, and reach out to shake their hand. Ohh, I just know his granddad would have been soo proud of him! 

Just as proud as his dad and especially his uncle James!

Thanks so much for stopping by! We sure hope you enjoyed meeting our little Braylon and we will be sure to have him come back to visit with you again! 

Have a nice evening!


  1. What a handsome devil he is! He would have me wrapped around his finger, too. I am glad that he came just when he was needed the most!

  2. Oh what a 'sweet heart'!!!!! -giggles- I know! A big boy like that, would not care to be called a 'sweetheart'. But, we older folks can. :-)

    I am so sorry that your sister's son, has been diagnosed with the same condition, as his dad and your James. But he has been diagnosed early and can doctor and make changes in his life style... So he can beat this condition.

    And have a long life, to take care of his son.

    Oh I do hope so.

    Gentle hugs...

  3. Oh, my! What a darling handsome young man! I love his name, too. God brings special blessings to us when needed ... so glad that Braylon is bringing you all the love there could ever be.

    Sorry to learn of each of the men having the same medical issues. Hope James can get this under control.

    Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie

  6. Dear Loretta, When the Lord closes a door He opens a window and Braylon is the window of fresh air. I am sure of the joy that he brings your family. He is adorable. God bless him.
    I am glad that you are doing better Loretta and please give my best to James.
    Take care my friends. Catherine xo

    I'm sorry to hear about the men in your family being effected by such a terrible disease, and sorry for your losses. I'm sure Braydon brings much needed joy!

  9. Thanks for sharing this story, Loretta. Sorry about the heart condition. I pray that he'll have victory over it.

    He seems way beyond his age in his poise. I like his eyes.

  10. Thanks to all of you for your lovely comments...they mean so much to us. Yes, Braylon is our ray of sunshine. Again thanks! Wishing you all a very pleasant day!

  11. Hi Loretta! Love this post...what a cutie he is! My Mom is 86 and she babysits her Great Grandkiddos too. I think it's a bit much for her, but she enjoys it and my Sister is also there with her. I hope your Sister can heal from her loss and I'm sure with the love of this family she will. Have a good week and I do hope it get cooler for you!
