It's a Wonderful World


This is ridiculous. One of the biggest events in life occurred on Thursday and I can't find the words to express myself. Our daughter gave birth to our twin grandsons. They arrived six weeks early. They arrived fast. They arrived perfect. Sweet Pea weighed 5lb 2oz and Pumpkin weighed 4lb 14oz. They are perfect. Round faces, ten long fingers and ten cute toes. Our daughter and her husband are doing well. I am so proud of them They were so strong, so calm and level-headed during an extremely harrowing experience. My knees are still shaking. The babies are in a neo-natal intensive care unit being well-cared for by many wonderful professionals. I haven't been able to hold them yet but I have been able to whisper to them that I love them. I have been able to stare at them and imprint their faces to my memory. I have been able to gaze at them intently and shower them with the love that I hold in my heart for them . I stand by their little incubators and will them to grow and flourish. I talk to them of the adventures we will have, of the mudpies we will make, the forts we will build, the artwork we will create. I am ready to read to them, cuddle them, kiss them and play with them. For now I will cherish them, pray for them and adore them. And now I would like to introduce you to my two grandsons...

Sweet Pea ... ...and Pumpkin ! xxoo

Aren't they adorable. I am so happy it all went well, and wish I could be there to see everyone. It is funny how the most amazing events suck the words right out of you. Our baby is only 2 months now, but it seems like ages since she was a tiny newborn. Give my nephews my love, and the happy parents too.

Major congratulations to you and your family on the arrival of your twin grandsons. Trust me when I tell you, the urge -and the ability -to just sit and stare at these beautiful little people will stay with you forever now. I never had urges like that with my kids when they were born, that all I wanted to do and did was to just sit and stare at them -probably because I had way too many other things that I HAD to do in order to care for them and the rest of the family. But grandparenthood brings that on us -where, if left to our own devices, that it how we would or could spend all our time, day in and day out, staring at these beautiful beings and marveling at the wonder of it all. I still can do that and my grandchildren now are ages 11, 5 and 3! Best things ever in the whole wide world, aren't they!
Peace.

CONGRATULATIONS PROUD GRANDMA!

I'm loving the lips on Sweet Pea! They are both as sweet as can be. And good sizes, too,for 6 weeks early and twins. I'm sure they will be out of there soon.

I'm so happy for all of you!
