This little piece of gorgeous is my new grandson, Liam Edward. He was born on January 25, 2010. He weighed 7.11 at birth and is 21 pounds, much different than his sister, Sadie who only weighed 4.14. My daughter, by no want of her own, had him naturally when the nurses decided she was too far along to have an epidural. So, she troopered through it as women have for all the centuries on earth. Sweetest mother/daughter moment came when my beautiful daughter held my hand, looked deeply into my eyes as she was pushing and said:
“Mom??? Did I just SHIT on the table???”
“Um, no, Sam. That was your son that just came out.”
I know I shouldn’t have been laughing as hard as I was, but it was really a defining moment for my daughter and I. We’re not exactly delicate flowers…but she is very shy and reserved so for her to blurt that out during delivery cracked me up to no end.
My family is growing. I am now a grandmother to TWO beautiful little ones.
Happy New Year to my grandbabies. May all your hopes and dreams come true.
I love you both.
