My daughter, who gave birth today to an adorable baby boy, has promoted me to the rank of grandmother! :woohoo: An incredibly moving event for me, and a much needed emotional pick-me-up - as some of you know, I've been in a bit of a decline healthwise lately.

After a very long labor (nearly 48 hours from first few contractions to delivery, including over 3 hours of pushing!!), Grady was born at 7:15 this morning, my first grandchild, weighing in at a hefty 8 lb 14 oz - bear in mind my daughter is very petite, under 5 ft tall! Needless to say, new mom and dad are exhausted, but beaming with joy. :emoticons-line-dance: :emoticons-line-dance:

It's been a great day! I plan on being around for a long time to watch this one grow up, hopefully to be joined by a few more!! Daughter says NOT EVER AGAIN, but don't most new moms say that after their first? :lol:

Thanks for listening! Hope your day was even half as good as mine was :VeryHappy:
