This photo was my first glimpse of my grandson Max, isn’t it amazing what technology has to offer. It’s been 3 years since that ultrasound photo was taken and boy has he grown. He is a child who thrives on curiosity and how things work, as you can see from the photo below, he has discovered how a pen works, I wonder if this is how Picasso started out.
My kids are everything to me, and no matter how old they get I always worry about them. I thought that when they became adults I would worry less, but I find that I worry just as much and I am convinced that a mother is pre-programmed to worry about the health of their child until that parent either dies or gets alzhiemers.
Being a grandma is wonderful, and Max’s mommy is fantastic. She is a very strong woman and handled her pregnancy like a champ. I knew she was capable of protecting her unborn baby with everything she had, and I also knew she was strong enough to go through labor with no meds (she really wanted to go it without meds) and I told her she could do it if she just focused on the end result…she succeeded.
I get home last night and had a pretty rushed evening, because I had somewhere to be, just then Max’s mommy text me to have some face time with her and Max and that Max had something to tell me. Max is such a cutie and can talk almost as well as a grownup. So we connect via face time and he is talking away, and it’s kinda hard to understand him, because he had a lot to tell me, but it wasn’t coming out totally clear. I’m like… “whattttt Max???”, my daughter whispered something in his ear and he slowed down and said it clear as day…..he said…”there’s a baby in there”, and pointed to his mommy’s belly.
Another grandbaby is on the way. I am so excited!!!
So now the worrying begins, but I rest assured knowing that I have raised one fabulous mommy and I know she will do just fine….I can’t wait until that first ultrasound photo and being able to see that little “peanut”, which will look more like an alien than my future grandbaby.
God is good, ALL the time
