A Few Thoughts From a New Grandma, Again

I have been missing in action for a few weeks. I have been blessed with another grandchild, thanks to my daughter. A beautiful little girl. Madison, 8lbs.10oz., auburn hair and a bundle of pure joy. I have had the pleasure of seeing another life come into this world that will immortalize me once again. I stayed at my daughter’s home to help her recover from a C-Section, but it was really my pleasure. I was able to care for little Madison in every way, including the infamous 2am feeding. Watching her sister running around helping her mom with her baby sister was pure joy. Being able to witness and be part of the miracle of life still amazes me even after my eighth grand child. How lucky am I. Sharing thoughts with my wonderful daughter about being a mom . Making memories and taking photos with my minds eye and storing them in my heart. This little one will probably be the last grandbaby for me. All of my children are just about finished having children, or so they say :o)…

Now it’s back to getting ready for our move. The moving men will be here on Monday to pack and Tuesday we are off to a new home. We are moving closer to my daughter and her family since she is my only child living in Florida. My two son’s live in New York along with their families. It has been a hectic few weeks and I expect the next couple of weeks will not be any different. I know the stress will come, but I will have something to make it easier to handle. My memories. :o)

  1. Pat, such wonderful news! Congratulations to all on the arrival of beautiful baby Madison. I love the pic – she looks so snug in the arms of her proud and loving big sister.

    You are lucky indeed – and so are your grandchildren to have a Grandma like you.

    Good luck with the move. Hope you’re soon settled in your new home.

    Warmest wishes,

    • Dear Paul,
      Thank you for the warm wishes. It will be hectic here until after the 15th.. By the 21st. all should be back to normal. I will then be living close to our daughter and the girls (gee that feels good to write) and close to the beautiful beach.
      I have many emails to answer and can not wait to read all the blogs that I have had to neglect. I will just settle down in front of my computer with a hot cup of tea and read to my hearts content. :o)
      Have a wonderful day…..

      Pat S.

  2. Oh, Patricia, I don’t know how I missed the miracle of Madison’s birth, but she is breathtaking! How wonderful that you could be there to help your daughter, to take soak in all that ‘newness,’ and share it with big sister too! Blessings to all of you. So love the picture. Safe and happy move to you.

    • Thanks Fratello. Hey, this makes you an uncle :o)…
      I will have to play catch up, but I am looking forward to reading your posts. I am also looking forward to sitting on your veranda and seeing what your Roos are up to.
      In the midst of all that is going on my husband had to have a heart procedure done. He went into A-Fib while I was helping my daughter. What a nightmare that was. Thank you for stopping by I miss everyone, but “I’ll be back.” :o)

      • So Sorella, I’m a Zio? Is that the right word? I hope Mike is okay, I will send healing for him. Don’t worry the veranda is still here and the Roos are lurking down the paddock. You come back when you’re ready, it all sounds very busy there. Congratulations Nonna.

  4. Pat – Congratulations on being nominated for the Butterfly Light Award! You richly deserve it, the humanity and humour of your blog much appreciated even here, by me, in this far-distant corner of Cheshire.

    Hope you are settled in your new home now.

    Take care,
