Blessings come in all sorts of sizes, and so do surprises. *VBS* I'm happy to introduce you to my newest grandchild, Baby A, born Feb 10th. I got to meet her on Saturday, and she's a sweetie. She weighed in at nearly 8#s but seems very small to me.
The situation between her mom and my youngest DS is not one I approve of, or even understand,not really. But it's not the baby's fault and I was thrilled to receive the invitation to come and see her.
She's Daddy's little girl, and he's thrilled to have a daughter, but miserable with only getting to "visit". I haven't talked about this upcoming event as things have been so "difficult" and unpleasant. The mom is the gal in the birthday pictures from my birthday in 2007. As soon as she was positive she was expecting, she moved out of their apt and moved in with her sister. Hard not to draw a conclusion from that behavior, and of course, DS was crushed. Connect the dots back to my helping get him into a place to live on his own, last August. He and I are both without a clue as to what lies ahead now that baby is here. Mom gets to dictate what comes next. In the meantime, I'm thrilled to having gotten to see Baby A. and deliver a quilt and lots of pink burpcloths *VBS*
