Children are born everyday, but this week my first grandson was born. The son of my second son Andy and his wife Biz. Another child delivered by C-section! Beloved by his parents and all his grandparents, family and their friends. He carries a long and cherished family name that ends with Jr. We will call him Leo.
On his first day in this world he amazed us all by lifting his head and shoulders up to peer around at his surroundings and find the joy filled eyes of his parents looking back into his. He is a big boy over 9 pounds, soft as the newest early morning breeze and strong as the life force that creates it. I haven't held him yet in my arms he is far away in New England, but I have him firmly secured in my innermost heart and am brimming with love for him. Leo I am counting the days down until I am with you.
This has been the year of Gramma Annie. In February after an emergency C-Section I welcomed my first grandchild into the world. Her name is Mya and my daughter Amy is her Mommy. Her Daddy is Micah. She is a perfect wee little babe with her mother's eyes and the soul of a very wise and traveled person. Watching my daughter with her daughter is beyond any expectations of, "how will she do?" They are bonded in a deep and abiding love. Amy is a mother through and through and she has found her reason to be here on God's green earth.
