It was 16 years ago today...
Our oldest grandson was born...
It was the day I became a "Grammy"

   I remember the day he came home. His Mom and Dad were living with us.  He was beautiful...no, I really mean it.. He was beautiful..even though he was a little bit of a "cone head" (which rounded out quickly, with a little rubbing from Grammy ;) )  My DH said to someone, "I have to keep reminding myself that he's theirs and not ours".

It seems he couldn't decide when and how to make his arrival. His Mom was my baby, so it had been a while since I had been in the labor and delivery wing...now it's called the birthing center..and everyone gets to be there...Long story short---after about 13 hours of labor, with about 3 hours of pushing (thus the "cone head"), NEHEMIAH (what a beautiful name) was delivered by emergency C-section. I was in the operating room when he was born and I was the first one to hold his hand.

 I knew even then that he was someone very special.. 

I've been looking around my house to find one of his baby pictures and, of course, I can't.  But I have this one of him with his Dad when he was very small .

Here's a more recent one...

And one more, with his family, to show how much he's grown...

As you can see, I have some more grandkids (aren't they BEAUTIFUL!)  There's 12 here in this picture, one in heaven and one the way!  That will make 14!
 Each one of them is so special and so precious to me. Each one holds a place in my heart that no one else can fill.  I am truly

But, today, my mind goes back to that day, sixteen years ago, when a handsome young man came into my life. He stole my heart away and changed my life forever.
