New Grandparents = New Firsts

Yep.  A new first.  I was nervous and excited just like with all my other firsts.  I was jonesing for this first.  Had been waiting all day.  The anticipation was high; emotions were out. of. control.

Then, as my first became a reality, I realized it was actually two new firsts:

#1) Holding my new grandbaby, my first grandchild, for the first time.

#2) Crying all over a baby that hadn’t come from me, for the first time.

New Grandparents = New Firsts

E was baptized in tears by my overwhelming love for him in that moment.

My baby had his own baby.  How else could I react but with a blessing of joyous tears?

Maybe like this:

Uncle Alex came prepared for the celebration and adorned the room, and all in it, with revelry!

It was a fitting for such a celebratory moment of firsts.

Seeing him in the morning and not holding him until the evening...agony! When we were expecting our first grandchild we went out and bought matching rocker recliners. I can remember one specific evening when we had our sweet baby for a few hours and were swapping him back and forth between our rocking chairs. It seemed every time it was my husband's turn, my arms just ached to get that baby back in them! Congratulations again on E's arrival!

It was torture! Husband and I experienced that same feeling when the other was holding the baby. Such a longing for him to be back in our arms.
