Meeting Joshua David

This morning I woke up at 5am to find a photo of my new grandson that had been texted to my phone....   I spoke with my daughter and everything was just perfect.  He came in at 6lbs 9oz and is 19 1/2 inches long.

So after I got up, made coffee, showered and got dressed, I went to the hospital and met him.

When I first got there, they had taken him to the nursery for a checkup and so I had to wait.  I had a very nice visit with my daughter and then....    they brought in Joshua.

I don't know what came over me, other than pure joy.  Don't get me wrong... his sisters are a joy, but there is something about my first grandson that really tugs at my heartstrings (probably the fact that I've always favored little boys born into the family) but all of a sudden, the tough Southern Belle, was reduced to a puddle of joyful tears.

I cried and cried... and all I could do was look at him until I stopped shaking.  I can't tell you how happy I am today, it's simply.....  bliss.

Now I find myself  thinking of all the cool things that I'm going to get to teach him to do....   fish...   shoot...   play ball....   fish....   shoot.....   haha!!

Without further ado, here are a few pics of Joshua David and one of his emotionally proud Nana holding him.....    

A note to my grandson....   "Joshua, your middle name is David which means 'beloved'...   the name is fitting as you are truly my beloved baby boy.  Welcome to the family, Nana loves you with all her heart."

A note to my granddaughters....   "Heili Maria Lynn, and Alana Diane...    I love both of you girls just as much as I love your brother.....   The both of you make Nana proud.."

Today, my friends....   I am truly blessed.


  1. Is there anything better than babies? I don't think so. Congratulations to your daughter, her growing family - and my best to you and KX.

    That little boy has sweet cheeks!

  2. Absolute congratulations to you and your family.

  3. I think you just wrote the manual on how to be a doting grandma.


    Congrats, Belle. I hope it's all this and more.

  4. Congrats on the new addition

  5. Awesome News, Congratulations!
