Theodore is born
|Recker had a hard time leaving his mom at the hospital|
May 31st Kayla and Jeremy welcomed Theodore Arthur to the family. Theo is our 5th grandchild, 4th boy 3rd boy for Kayla. Being a grandmother is still a little overwhelming. I look in the mirror and don’t see a grandmother looking back. Can I be old enough? Am I good enough to be blessed with such beautiful children? It’s strange…. getting older, thinking about the days when my children were little and I thought it would never end. We had 4 children in less than 6 years, those were both joyful and hard years. I think I took so much for granted, we all do. I remember being so tired thinking I would never have a full nights sleep again–an older woman said to me one time “This too shall pass” I remember thinking I wanted to punch her in the face…This was not going to pass, at least not quickly. Guess what? She was right, I was wrong those days are long gone however it feels like just yesterday I was rocking my own babies to sleep.
Today as I sat at the hospital and rocked Theo to sleep I couldn’t help but wonder what wonderful memories he will bring to our family. He is perfect, I simply love him. It’s interesting when siblings are born into the same family with the same genes but all turn out looking and acting so differently.
