Our sweetie arrived and my, she is lovely. My thoughts are consumed with the experience, by the enveloping pure joy that her birth created in all of us present, and by her exquisite loveliness.
Our wee girl is so responsive, ‘talking’ to me as I cuddle her closely. I talk to her of my love for her, and all her large family that are waiting to meet her. I welcome her into this beautiful world.
I am so enamoured of this wee new life that has some of my genes within her. I love that they help make her who she is, and who she will become. Her gene pool on both her maternal and paternal lines is filled ancestors who developed great fortitude to carry them thro life’s difficulties. Her Scottish, English, German, Belgian and Irish ancestors lived their lives proudly, with gusto, strength, humour, ambition, integrity and love.
A very good start for you, dear baby.
I’ll Love you forever and I’ll Like you for always,
As long as you’re living, my grandchild you’ll be.

Most of your aunts, uncles, cousins will be meeting you over the next few days, but your Aunt Stephanie lives far away in British Columbia. I sent news of your birth and some photos. She replied:
“I know – so adorable, beautiful!
Wish I was there to give her the biggest hug from her auntie!!
I called this afternoon & of course did not get a hold of you Greg, but left a sobbing message – just so shocked at her beauty & taken back by life in it’s purest.
So glad to see all the photos.
Just so amazing!!!!
You might think from my emoting, that this is the first time I have had this incredible experince, but no – I had five children, and my husband and I previously had nine other ‘grands’. The difference is, that they were all so long ago. I am so blessed to have this enormity of emotion once again, and in my 70’s. It is all the more sweet for that. I love you guys!
