That special day we have been waiting for finally arrived on Monday morning, October 22, 2012 at 3:00 am. Our first grandson was born in
Anaheim, Southern California via emergency c-section; he was 7 lbs, 12 oz and 19” long, his name is Parker. Unfortunately we were not there when he
was born but we did manage to arrive several hours later. We live about 6-8 hours away depending on
traffic and how many stops we needed to make, we left at 5:30 am and arrived
around 12:30 pm. My husband and I started packing and getting the house ready
when we got the call Sunday evening, we packed all night getting only about an
hour of sleep then hopped in the car and started our journey, staying up about
36 hours before we were able to go to sleep.
You know what, we are not young anymore and 36 hours is a long time to
go without any sleep but really worth it to be able to see and hold our darling
new grand baby not long after he was born.
We truly cherish those first hours of our grandchildren’s lives when we
get to really bond with them which makes for a very special life long
Because it was an emergency trip several things got all messed up or forgotten, one of them being my pre-scheduled blog posts of the Apron A Day Series. I was not able to set them up like I planned to so I can not share them with you while I am away, oh well; I guess they will wait until I get home again. I think I will be back on track again late next week after I get home and unpacked. We planned to stay for about ten days but we could not find an extended stay hotel due to some huge convention which hits town this Friday booking up all the rooms anywhere close to our son’s condo. We managed to find a hotel across the street from
for a few nights, what a great area with tons of places to shop and eat so we
will stay until we have to move out on Friday, after that who knows. Anyway… we are thrilled to be here spending
time with our son and his new little family for as long as we can.
Thanks for letting me share the joy we are experiencing with all of you; things will be back to normal very soon, keep watching for the Apron A Day Series and more of the toy room makeover projects, lots of those coming up.
See you soon.
