Welcome to the World, Liam Edward…

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.

    Oh my, he really is beautiful…and I don’t mean “cute baby” *snicker* I mean full on beautiful, he looks calm and content. Congrats to your whole family.

    That little munchkin is a keeper! He’s GORGEOUS, all in caps!

    And Liam is the name of one of my nephews and, by far, one of my most favorite people in the world. A delicious name for your delicious grandson.

    HUGE congratulations to you and your whole family.

    Hello there CP – It’s has been a long time indeed! Thanks for stopping by to get an update on the train wreck blog of mine – sorry I don’t have more bad news for you – just more babies! πŸ˜‰

    Anyway – Congrats on your new grand-baby, he is precious. Seems as though Edward is a popular name – I love how strong and solid is sounds.

    Being a grandma sure is a badge of honor, you must be very proud. My mom insisted on being called “Nana” since I was only 15 when I made her a grandmother, but the status is still one to be admired. Plus you get all the extra benefits of spoiling the little munchkins, then giving them back to mom once the sugar high wears off and they start to act up.

    Take Care – I’m sure we’ll see each other around bloggerville from time to time.
