Our New Love

I am in love with a new person in my life. There is such a thing as love at first sight. The instant I saw her, I knew her.  A miniature child of the child that I had 31 years ago. I remember feeling the way my daughter and her husband are feeling right now. In awe. In love. The little child who has been nestled in her womb. Sometimes kicking, sometimes hicuppping, loved by Kristin & Tim since the day she was created. Ten fingers, ten toes, and that cooing sound that I will never get enough of. Tearing up (both Steve & I) when we saw her for the first time. The little pink knit cap covering her hair of  brown. Struggling to get fingers or a thumb in her mouth. Wide awake right after birth. These memories will be imprinted forever in our minds. Welcome to the family Jaelyn Nicole.

She is a cutie...OH!

Is it pronounced JAY LYNN? I have one of those type of names too - hard to spell and impossible to pronounce, but [well, back in the day] unique. Never heard anyone else with my name until I was at college.

She will certainly be the only one in her class I bet!

Holding a grandchild is such an amazing feeling, they kind of let us know that something of us will be around long after we are gone.
To see our children as parents is such a gift. Enjoy these moments!
