I've had 9 months to get ready for this day but I still was unprepared for the absolute JOY that comes with the birth of your children's children! Little Miss Hallie Marie made her entrance into my heart on Tuesday morning, April 10th, 2012.
She is so tiny and precious and although I was so afraid I would not remember how to help care for her, it all came back like I'd hoped it would. A special thanks goes out to those who have prayed for me - it's kinda scary being responsible for one so tiny and helpless. Would I remember how to hold a baby? Would I be a help or a hinderance to her new parents? Would I be able to help with midnight feedings and changing diapers?
Would I be able to hear her cry in the night (I can't even hear the tv unless it's turned up loud :-)
But Natalie and Chase have graciously let me stay for the week to help - and I'm sure to have withdrawals when I leave to go back home this weekend.
I now know why my friends, who were grandma's before me, drop everything when their children say "would you like to come for a visit to help"!
