My little "Romeo"
Roman David born November 3rd
I fell head over heels in love with my new Grandson from the minute he was born. The strong maternal feelings were so overwhelming that I just wanted to bring him home to love and cuddle. Of course my daughter wanted to bring him home to her house too... imagine that. I told her they would just have to move in with us so I could see him everyday. It wasn't realistic but that's how I felt, I'm thankful they only live about 30 minutes away so I can see him often.
The birth went well, my daughter was amazing, and her fiance' Michael was a shining star. I have a whole new appreciation for him as I watched him care for her while she was in labor for 20+ hours. Both his mother, sister, and I were the support team right along with him. I was so proud of my daughter Christina and glad I could be with her through the long night at the hospital while she was in labor. Little Roman came into the world healthy as can be and has a full head of dark hair, he was beautiful even as a newborn. You can see in the picture above at a couple weeks old how adorable he is! When I hear grandparents gush about their grandchildren, now I understand, I wasn't prepared for the love that wells up inside us for grandchildren, but it surely does!
