I love and adore all 10 f my grandchildren. Each has their own personality and style. Rockwell is my uber-pleasant one.
Rockwell is special in that he is the first “Kravetz” of his generation in the Alexander Kravetz (my grandfather) line. His middle name is also that of Alexander’s father Elias (his great great great grandfather). I was the first in my generation and Seth was the first in his as well. I think it is cool that we are now 5 generations from Alexander Kravetz.
Back in 2012 all of the family was in Lexington and we were able to get a four generation photo with my stepfather Joe Kravetz, me, Seth and Rockwell. Not many are able to get four generation photos like that, so it is really special.
Rockwell was the only grandchild that has actually lived in our home. While Seth was going to UK, they lived in the upstairs section of the house, so we got to see Rockwell often, when he was young.
Honestly, that is a joy and blessing in and of itself. It had been many years since a baby had resided in the house. Babies bring such happiness and love into a home and Rockwell certainly did this.
Seth graduated and soon moved to Ohio for a job and then later to Connecticut. Our opportunity to see Rockwell was lessened as a result.
Most children his age are pretty hyper, but Rockwell is even keeled, pleasant almost always and certainly friendly and good natured.
When he has visited he was never shy and was always willing to sit with Grampz for a quick book read, etc.
I really count myself blessed to have this joyful young man in my life and the life of my family. Following are a few joyful moments and a couple of other photos of this smart, handsome and AWESOME grandchild of mine.
Can you blame me for wanting to be a PROUD GRAMPZ??
My daughter Marissa captured some early moments of his life in this great video, which I thought I would share here.
