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.
