The big news over on my end is that my daughter gave birth to a beautiful little prince which now makes me a grandmother! Of course all babies are exciting but the first is always special!
So now my daughter is recuperating by me and I get to hold my precious bundle quite a lot! It’s been a while since I had a baby in the house – my youngest is 9 so there are things we have to get used to again – like hearing a baby cry in the middle of the night, diaper changing, burping…
But it’s great! I can enjoy the newborn without being a sleep deprived mom-in-training! When I took a walk yesterday pushing my grandson in the stroller, I met an old acquaintance whom I haven’t seen in months. She took one look at the baby and noticing his age she exclaimed, “Wow, I didn’t hear you had a baby! When did you give birth?” I laughed and told her it’s my first grandchild! I actually took it as a compliment – it’s great to look young; people don’t know your real age!
So now I have a new role to appreciate and enjoy and give thanks to God.
