And the Circle of Life Continues

I have two children, Jennifer (31) and Alex(27) and today my daughter had her first child. Everyone had been asking me how did I feel about becoming a Grandmother, and I really didn't have any feelings about it. I don't think I do, still, I do have feelings about my daughter having a baby. When I asked her if she wanted me to be there, she said "no". Which is the same thing I would of said to my mother. Well, as I sat there and waited to hear from them, knowing she was in labor, I realized that I couldn't sit just sit there. So I went to the hospital just so that i could be there just in case!!

Anyway, her husband did such a wonderful job!!! he was so supportive and is an absolutely wonderful husband!! He did anything and everything she wanted. And she did a wonderful job as well!! She wasn't complaining or anything!! I was so proud of them both. We already knew it was going to be a boy, so that surprise was gone, but I of course was so worried something would go wrong!!
Thankfully, nothing did and Little Joshua Robert Edwards came into the world today at 12:27 pm, weighing in at 7 lbs. 3 ozs and 20 inches long. he is absolutely precious and was very interested in everything that was going on. At least until it was time for his first bath, and he didn't like that at all. Mother and Dad are both doing well and all grandparents have had their turn snuggling and cooing at him.
He is beautiful and I hope you enjoy the pictures. Please forgive a new grandmother her first pictures of her first grandchild.
