How Can It Be?

How can it be that my grandson is turning one today? How can it be that I am old enough to even have a grandson, let alone a child old enough to be a parent? Time goes by so fast?

One year ago I was there in the hospital with my daughter and son-in-law when we welcomed Holden to our family. It started out ok, got really scary and then ended up wonderful. After many hours of intense, painful labor the doctor was forced to perform an emergency c-section when Holden's heart rate dropped dramatically. Brittany was put completely under and Nick wasn't even able to be in the operating room. But, the outcome was a perfect, beautiful baby boy!

Because he lived in Missouri and now Texas, and we live in Oregon, it's been a challenge to see him as much as I'd like (every day would work for me!). But between me going there and them coming here I've been able to see him about every three months or so. After having five girls it is so fun to have a little boy! He is so sweet and so much fun and I don't think I could love him any more! Happy Birthday little monkey man, Grandma loves you!
