I'm a Grandma! I'm a Grandma!

Our first grandchild was born yesterday at 12:05pm, in Alexandria, Virginia.  A healthy baby boy weighing8 lbs 2 ozs.

I am gobsmacked!  I was never able to have children of my own and, in my 40's, had given up on the idea of having children or grandchildren. But when I met and married my husband, I had the joy of also getting two step-sons in high school.

So, not only did I have the opportunity to help raise two wonderful young men, but now I am blessed with a grandchild as well.

Life has a beautiful way of working out.  I will get to greet the new baby in October, when we travel east for our younger son's wedding.  I can hardly wait!

Thank you, Terri! I am so excited I can barely sleep with anticipation of getting to meet this new addition to the family and actually hold him in my arms. It's still 3 months away until we get to see him, so I will have to live with pictures from others until then.
