Joy of a New Grandmother!

I’m in love, again, with a beautiful baby boy…Evan Michael.  For years I have heard about the tremendous love a grandparent feels for their grandchildren and now I get to experience that joy!

As our children grow up it is hard to imagine that they, too, will once be parents.  Not only is there joy in meeting your grandbaby but joy in seeing the eternal love that the new Momma and Papa have for their sweet baby boy.

Daughter, Sarah and her husband, Kyle, had their precious baby on April 24. Mother, Father, and baby are doing well.  I am so happy for them and wish them good health, much love, and happiness for their family.

We Love You, Little One

We loved you from the very start,
You stole our breath, embraced our heart.

Our life together has just begun,
You’re part of us our little one.

From the day we first knew,
Our mind was filled with thoughts of you.

We’d daydream of the things we’d share,
Like bedtime stories and teddy bears.

Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like nursery rhymes and ABC’s.

We thought of things you’d want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

We thought of lessons we’d need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair.

Each naptime we lay you down to sleep,
We gently kiss your head and cheek.

We count your little fingers and toes,
We memorize your eyes and nose.

We linger at your nursery door,
Awed each day we love you more.

Through misty eyes, we dim the light,
We whisper “We Love You” every night.

We loved you from the very start,
You stole our breath, embraced our heart.

As grandparents and grandchild our journey’s begun,
Our hearts are yours, forever, little one.

  1. I’m so happy for you, Cathy! We had dinner at Betty & George’s last weekend, so we knew it was impending. I just hope you live close enough, so you can enjoy that little guy!


    1. Thanks so much Barbara! I live about 10 minutes away from the baby (and the parents :)). I think of you and the group often and wish we could have another adventure! So good to hear from you!


  2. Cathy – love this – It is hard to imagine loving someone as much as you love your own children….but it happens! Enjoy every moment! I can’t wait to meet him!


  3. Congratulations on your newest family member! It’s been a while since I’ve checked in on your blog, but it’s always a delightful read. So delighted to read your news. My only nephew, Jill’s son, is named Evan Michael, and what a thrill it was for all of us when he was born! Enjoy every minute…
