A new kind of love.....

My heart has been filled to over-flowing with a new kind of love that I NEVER could have imagined!
Here are a couple of hints.....

"Hey Diddle Diddle,
Some new, Someone Little
My heart is over the moon"

"If I would've known how much fun grandchildren were, I would've had them first"

(Okay, that hint should have really given my news away!!)

Introducing....... my precious grandson,

22 February 2013
5 lbs

I have respected my older sons' wish for privacy on my blog (mainly because I know too much and would be a source of constant embarrassment - LOL) but with Jackson's arrival, I am allowed to share the love!!
Is there anything on earth sweeter than seeing your child hold HIS child?  This picture just bursts my heart every time I look at it.  ('Course right now, EVERY picture of Jackson just bursts my heart!!!)
Justin and Jane, his lovely wife (of 11 years! - not that I was counting or anxious to be a grandma or anything - ha ha) have blessed our family with Jackson.
We are so grateful to God that Jackson is here -  safe and sound and loved!  

I am going to be a "GiGi".  Because of divorce/blended families/etc...Poor Jackson would have so many different "grandma's", that we each decided to have our own names for "grandma".  We don't want to confuse the poor little guy...he's still. just a rookie.   :)

The only down-side is that Jackson and I live on different coasts...but that doesn't mean that I'm not going to do everything in my power to make sure that the little guy knows how loved he is.  I can spoil him from afar with snuggle visits in between.  Hey, Gigi lives not far from Disney World...Mickey and Minnie will be waiting!  :)    Come visit Gigi, Jackson...we'll share "firsts" of our own! 

We've already decided that we're all going to have to chip in for hair gel expenses for that little guy.  Isn't that one of the most beautiful heads of hair you've ever seen?  Jackson's - not Justin's.  LOL  Although I love every hair on Justin's head too.  :)

We love you, Jackson....forever, for always and no matter what.  Thank you for reminding us that the world is a wonderful place and full of joy.  We can't wait to watch you grow and find that out for yourself.
Be blessed, little one...

Hugs and Grace,
