Yesterday was a special day. My wife became a grandma. I'm not sure I'm ready to be called "grandpa." However, a very special girl was born at 8:24 AM to my daughter and her husband of almost 6 years. They are wonderful parents and seem much better prepared for this moment in life than we were twenty-five years ago.
We are so blessed to have a healthy mother and child. The birth was a C-section, something we never experienced, and as a result there was no labor or long hours of waiting before the birth. Madison Nevaeh Sullivan entered the world after a scheduled surgery weighing exactly 8 pounds and measuring 20 1/2 inches long.
To Madison I say, "Welcome to our world. We will join your parents and the broad network of family members and friends to create a safe and loving environment for you. I met you in your mom's room and you slept in my arms, seemingly quite content and trusting. You already have a place in our hearts and will always have a place in our lives. We love you! (p.s. you can call me anything you want!)"
