I didn't take this photo. The credit belongs to the contracted photographer at the hospital. It is a beautiful photo. Every time I look at it I remember the little boy who I used to cuddle and hug this way. If WeeGran is as delightful as her daddy was when he was a baby, well, we are truly going to be very blessed. I'm sure she'll will be, just look at her expression here! She is only a day old here.
I'm already blessed to be the mother of such wonderful sons. I am constantly amazed and sometimes startled by all their intelligence, their compassion, and their talents. Everything else can fall apart as long as I know they are healthy, happy, and thriving. Their happiness and joy is what has always driven me. Still drives me.
And now I have this wee little girl to watch grow-up. My happiness and joy are refilled every day, every minute, I see her, hold her, and think of her. I know all grandparents are well aware of that feeling as you wait for the news - "They're here!" Holding her brings back the flood of emotion I felt when I first held her daddy. Soft as velvet and exquisitely beautiful. Her features are so tiny, but-oh-so perfect.
Lucky little girl for having such wonderful parents. For I not only have a wonderful son, but he found a perfect wife to share his life and to bring more gratitude into my and hubby's life. We continue to be astounded at our blessings. Thank you both for creating such a beautiful little one to share with us.
