My First Grandchild!

Yes my granddaughter is here finally. Saturday I had gotten a phone call from my son asking me to come up by him. His girlfriend was getting induced. I told him I had to talk to my boyfriend about this. He said mom I need you here with me. My son kept begging me on the phone and I kept telling him I had to talk to my boyfriend. My son was lucky I had the weekend off of work.

I was talking to my boyfriend and my son kept texting me and asking me if I was coming up there. Then he was asking me to text him some phone numbers.

So my boyfriend gave in and I told my son and he was so happy. I told him we all had to take showers and I had to pack an overnight bag. But the phone calls and the text messages didn't stop with my son. He was so nerves. 

I had my ex husband's seven year old for the weekend too. So it was my boyfriend, my ex husband's seven year old, my youngest daughter. the dog and myself going up there. I had to try to get everything together for the trip. This was not in the plans for the weekend. We left about 3:30pm and got up there about 7pm.

The people that were there when we got to the hospital was my mom, my younger sister, my older daughter, my ex husband, my niece her daughter and my nieces boyfriend. My son was upset because no one from my ex husband's family came to the hospital.

It was about midnight we were told that his girlfriend wouldn't be having the baby until between 5-6 in the morning on Sunday. So we were getting ready to leave to get some sleep. My boyfriend and I went to get the girls and then we were told that his girlfriend was going for emergency c-section. The baby's heart rate was dropping. She was born at 1:35am on September 4th, 2011. This picture is my son feeding his daughter before we left the hospital right after she was born. I took this picture of my son and granddaughter.

We did manage to go and get about five hours of sleep and came back to the hospital to see the baby. The picture above is me holding my granddaughter after some sleep. My boyfriend took the picture above.  I am very happy for my son. But I also told him I can spoil her and send her back home to mommy and daddy. He gave me a dirty look for that one. But I have a feeling my boyfriend will spoil her more than I will.

It was a very long two days for us. By the time we got home Sunday night we were wiped out. We did have plans to go to a concert Sunday night but we never made it. The main thing for me is I did get to be with my boyfriend the whole weekend and we were able to be there for my son when his daughter was born. I never thought I would hear my son say mom I need you. I hope everyone was able to enjoy there weekend. I am a very proud Grandma!


  1. Congratulations! She's beautiful. There must be something in the air-- 2 of the mom's from the SAHM group my wife is involved with had babies this week (1 had a little boy Sunday night as we babysat her 2 year old daughter for her) and the other had a little girl on Tuesday afternoon. And I believe an old high school friend of mine had a little girl this week too... And now I read that you're a grandmother!

  2. I guess it is that time of year for the babies. Thank you Perlexio. My son said she is doing really good at home with them too.
