Now you can call me Grandma

It's late and it has been a very difficult day - but i am now a grandma. He is absolutely beautiful, just in case you wonder...and he looks like his daddy a whole lot - and even though I hope he soon looks like his momma too, I like him, and think I'll keep him. His name is Brodie, short for Broderick, and he weighs 8 pounds, fourteen ounces...and he is twenty inches long. He is having some issues, but so far, we are assured that he is in good shape. He had a rough go of it - I don't think it was his idea to make his first appearance today, but since he kicked really hard and broke the "pool" he was lounging in, it was time. I cried outside the door, listening to the pain and suffering going on inside that room, and I wanted so badly to barge in and do it for her, I think she must have pushed for more than two hours...but she is in great shape, although worn all the way out. Please say a prayer for my little Brodie, he needs to be in perfect health...for all of us. Happy BIRTHDAY, Brodie. I love you.

Oh my goodness, CONGRATULATIONS!! I am so excited for you. I hope Brodie's issues are not too serious and will say a prayer for him and for you too. I am so sorry that you are having such a hard time right now but this little guy will put some of your life in perspective and will be such a joy for you. What a wonderful blessing. Enjoy, Grandma!

I was so suprised and delighted to pop in here and find this wonderful news - your little grandson safely arrived in this world! I can only imagine being the grandma outside the door listening to your daughter struggle thru delivery, but I know that your love and prayers surrounded her and helped her get thru it. I'll be praying for little Brodie too! Can't wait to see some photos! Congratulations to all of you, this little guy couldn't arrive in your life at a better time - like your own living, breathing little rainbow!

Congratulaltions to the new grandmother and to the mother, too. There's nothing like the small and sounds of a new baby to tie your heart strings in a happy bow. If you happen to be the grandmother - well, there's no expressing the love and joy you feel. I'm so happy for you. Little Brodie has my warmest welcome and my deepest prayer.

I knew what was coming and I got all teary anyway. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Janelle did awesome! He is the most perfectly adorable bundle of boy. It's such a blur when they're so small and you're so tired but then again what more could you ask for:)

Good lord, how'd I get this far behind? I like the name. It sounds good and solid. The name of a stand up kinda guy.

Congrats Grandma. Give that kid a squeeze for me.
