For the past 9 months, we have been waiting with great anticipation, for the arrival of our first grandchild.
Because our son & daughter-in-law chose not to find out the gender of the baby, we knew not whether this precious being was a girl or a boy until our first meeting.
Personally, I think it’s more fun that way.
Allow me to introduce you to our precious granddaughter, or wee little LAM. (her initials)
How is it one little person can cause your heart to practically explode?
There is something magical about looking into the eyes of your grandchild for the very first time. An overpowering sense of awe & a knowing that this is a connection that promises to reach the very core of your being.
I was so grateful to have been invited to stay with Mom, Dad & our wee LAM for the first week after their arrival home, helping out in whatever way I could, & of course sneaking in as many baby snuggles as possible.
As I sat there with this little bean in my arms, listening to her little breaths & simply staring at her for hours on end, I often found myself overcome with emotion.
Just when I thought my heart could not feel more full, I look at her perfect little face & somehow my heart grows just a wee bit more.
How fortunate this precious little life is to have been born into a family with so much love to share.
Parents who, I have no doubt, will be there for this little one each & every step of her life.
Of this, I am sure!
Welcome my beautiful girl! I am so excited to share in your life and to learn how to be the best Grandma I can be as I watch you grow.
