Its been awhile.. But I have a wonderful excuse and I’m so excited to share it with you all. My journey took me 516 miles away from my home in OZ, running through airport terminals hoping to catch an earlier flight towards my destination. I’ve often waited for my connection flights watching people run like mad towards their connection wondering, what were they in such a rush for? Were they in a hurry to catch an important meeting, rushing to see loved ones, or were they like me, rushing for my reason? So before I tell you my reason…
Break out the Champagne and grab a good cigar I’m having Moet White Star and an Opus X and I’m listening to Barber: Adagio For Strings played by Zürich Baroque Strings (You have to play this.) because……
IT”S A BOY!!!
Meet baby EDEN. (Grand baby EDEN)
I was so honored to be asked to be there for the birth of my first grandchild. It took two days for him to come into this world and even all the coffee in the world couldn’t help keep us awake.
(Day one) After 24 hrs. I’m sucking down coffee like MAD.
Day two lol.
Even my son took his 5 minute naps when he could.
The moment I started to shed my tears quietly was watching an expectant father keep his silent, constant watch over his wife, praying for a safe delivery for them both. Ready as a soldier (that he is) to jump at any moment to get her whatever she wanted, or needed.
Then the moment came……
Happy Birthday my sweet baby EDEN.
I love my children, and I love them so much I wonder “How could my heart possibly love anymore?” …Then your heart grows even bigger.
The small sounds he makes, the way he smells, everything about him is wonderful!
After sometime I headed back to their home to get food ready and allow the sweet new family to bond in peace. So what did EDEN do?
I had a wonderful time that evening. It was a little lonely, but it was nice to be with my thoughts. Thoughts of his future… What will he be like when he grows up? Who will be the first to win his heart? Who will be the first to break his heart??…. Oh baby don’t you worry! Foxy has you! (Foxy is what they call me instead of grandma.) LOL.
Ok, baby is on his way so I better get to cooking meals for the new family to have for the week.
Look at that face!!
After the week flew by I was heading home…..
That had to be the loneliest plane ride home.. I was bawling! This time I slowly made my way through the terminal to catch my connection. There were no earlier flights to grab so I sat and watched others rushing around wondering if any of them were on their way to meet a new loved one coming into this world.?
Then I got a phone call from my son who said that they were going to baby EDEN’S appointment in the morning and if they get the “All clear” from the doctor they would be up the next day!
One day apart was too long.
Here is a hilarious picture my daughter in laws mom made of baby EDEN portraying what he would be like if he was mine. I DIE!!!
Every second I had him, I was memorizing everything about him.
Holding him I would pray for him. I would pray for his future…
In his sleep I would make silent promises to him that only he would know…. Then 2 weeks flew by and I had to say goodbye to him.
How do you do that? How do you tell your heart not to break???
How do you say goodbye to this face!!??
Oh baby EDEN I’m here and will always be here for you…… I LOVE YOU!!
I promise, I promise, I promise to continue to pursue good health and nutrition so I will be here to see what your bright future holds for you.
Cheers! To eating Waistline Friendly Meals to insure many years to come!
