Brooke had her baby on Sept. 16. 6#9oz. She sure is a cute little thing. Brooke is doing amazing. She is such a good little mommy. I'm so proud of her and that the nursing is going so well. It is so different being the grandma and not the mom while having a newborn in the house. We had scheduled the shower for the 17th, but that didn't happen so we had it on the 24th. We are surrounded by such good people. I almost want another baby so someone will make me a beautiful blanket, but I guess I can just get my act together and make myself one. Thanks to everyone for making it so special for Brooke and showing her how many people love her.
It is so weird to think of where we were so many years ago. I didn't realize where I'd be at this point in my life, so I'm just going to list some of the changes that have taken place.
I didn't know that we would have 7 of the most beautiful children.
I didn't know that we would be grandparents already...we're still young aren't we?
I didn't know of the joy that comes when you take a child to the Temple.
I didn't know that we'd be living so far away from where we were raised.
I didn't know that we'd be so overweight....we can still fix this!!!!!
I didn't know that Gary would have already had a heart attack.
I didn't know that I would be so much more in love than I was on our wedding day!
It's amazing that we still feel so young and yet it is such a deeper love than I ever thought existed. I'm so grateful that families are forever. Thanks, Gary for the years behind us and the many ahead.
