Month: October 2014

Baby Love!

I am thrilled and honored to introduce you all to my 1st born grandbaby!! This is Weston Owen Foor. After subjecting his Mommy, my daughter, to 49 hours of labor, our little heartbreaker finally made his grand entrance. He’s perfect, happy, & healthy!! Mommy is doing well despite the 2-day long ordeal. Actually, after 1:00 am when we finally met this little man, Mommy looked downright stunning. Everyone made a comment about it. She certainly is tenacious.

Weston made his debut on October 30, 2014 at 11:34 pm. He weighed 6 lbs 4 oz, measured 19″, and has lots of dark hair. We hung around the hospital until the middle of the night so we could get our hands on him. I still haven’t kissed on him, or nibbled his little toes yet. I want to make sure I’m healthy before I literally drool over this little stunner.

My son, who is 12, waited very patiently until the wee hours of the morning to hold his new nephew. He’s never held a baby before. I think he’s a natural. Brandon was anxious to get back the next day and embrace Weston some more. This picture, my son holding my grandson, chokes me up a little. What a happy day this is!

Oh, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Generations

I have been pretty lax about posting this week. I swear it’s not just the lazy in me. While laziness is, indeed, usually the motivation behind my days off, this time I have a good reason… I’m having a grandson!

My daughter has been in the hospital now for over 36 hours. Seems the little guy is pretty comfy in his current location. The doctors have served that stubborn baby with several eviction notices, but he’s doing this on his terms. Don’t tell her I said this, but he’s like his Mommy in that regard.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like I will get to hold Little Man right away. I started running a fever the very day we learned my daughter was going to be induced. Now 2 days later, my head is full, my throat is burning, my lungs ache, and I’ve become one of the world’s leading mucous producers. This does not please Gigi. Lucky for all of the other ultra excited family members, that’s one less person to fight for cuddle time. Good thing I have a whole lifetime of hugs and kisses waiting for me when I feel better.

Hopefully today is the day! My daughter would rather not have a Halloween baby. However, we’ll all take a healthy baby when he decides he’s ready, no matter what day it is. He’s not even born yet, and he’s already calling the shots.

The featured photo is from my daughter’s baby shower. With her and I are the baby’s great-grandmother and his great-great-grandmother. As soon as our little guy arrives, both sides of my family, my mother’s and my father’s, will have 5 living generations.

I’ll update everyone when there are pictures to share!

The Apple

My grandson will be here in less than 3 weeks! This Throwback Thursday honors the powerful bond between a grandmother and her grandchild.

Ben Turner burst through the door, kicked off his shoes, dropped his backpack and ran into the kitchen. As expected, a shiny red apple awaited him on the counter. Without word, he snatched the apple and climbed into a bar stool to enjoy it.

“Hungry today Benny?” Asked Grandma, as she took inventory of the contents of the kitchen.  Ben smiled through his mouth full of apple and nodded excitedly.

He loved everything about having Grandma live at his house. Even getting her moved in last summer was a great adventure. Ben got to ride with Daddy in a big truck all the way to Grandma’s. He felt so grown-up as he helped carry boxes and possessions from her house to the truck. All the way back home he and Grandma sang and laughed.

On his first day of third grade, Ben came home to find the largest, most succulent…
