Everyone told me that I would never be the same after becoming a grandparent. “Everyone” was correct.
This past weekend we finally met our adorable grandson, Theo. It took us 3 months, negative covid testing and isolating after the negative test and a great deal of waiting but we FINALLY met him and what a wonderful time we had.
To say that our hearts are full would be an understatement in the largest degree. All of the logistics to make this happen do not matter. What matters is that we safely met him and were able to finally hold that not so little anymore bundle of joy.
Of course I cried when I first saw him and I am pretty sure Chris teared up as well. There is just something about seeing your own child with his baby that is very hard to explain. Micah and Wendy are naturals at being parents and it was so overwhelming to me to see how much they had settled into the role so easily. Of course they probably don’t think so but they have. I am so proud of them both.
Theo also celebrated his 100 Days Celebration while we were there so we were able to join with his other grandparents (who have been a huge help to the new parents) and celebrate him in fine style. He was so good and aware of everyone and everything on his special day — it was so precious.
Of course the time was too short with him and we will have to wait until we are able to get our vaccines for travel to see him again, most likely, but once that happens we will be on the road as often as we can be to watch him grow up.
We all are in love with him and can’t wait to watch him grow and discover everything that he will discover. But for now, please stay little for a little while, Theo, so we can enjoy your sweet little self.

I feel like i have waited so long for these pictures of you with that little cutie. How special. I especially love the one with you reading a book to him. He is so lucky to have you two as grandparents. Enjoy every minute. Xo
Aw….what precious pictures! I’m so glad you and Chris were able to meet that sweet little one.
This is the day I’ve been waiting for! Photos of you and Theo! He is so so adorable! I love him! Happy for Grandma and Grandpa!
So happy you finally met Theo! Grandchildren are a blessing and they grow up so fast! Jake is as tall as me now and he’s 12 😊
He is so adorable. And I can only imagine how much this meant to you and Chris. Your joy and love shines through in the photographs and I’m so happy for you that you finally got to meet him. ❤️
Congratulations Grandma. So happy that you and Chris got to meet him. We had the same ordeal when Jake was born with Jeff’s parents. The weekend of Jake’a birth our nephew was diagnosed with leukemia. Jeff’s parents couldn’t come see Jake due to Jake’s vaccines. Since they were “live” vaccines and Jeff’s parents helped with our nephew’s sister, they couldn’t be around Jake. It was hard for all of us for them not to be able to meet Jake at first.
My heart overflows with happiness for you and Chris that you finally saw Theo in-person and loved on him.
Theo is so precious!!! My heart is so happy for you & Chris. I see many more great times with him in your future. Being grandparents is a blessing for sure. Our two grandsons are 29 & 21 so enjoy every moment you can with Theo. Time goes so very fast, my friend.
Seeing all of these photos makes me so happy for you! Love it!
Oh Beth Ann! Yeah! So very, very thrilled for you and Chris. My eyes might have leaked a little when I saw this. ❤ Little Theo is just adorable and so easy to love. He is one very blessed baby to have you 2 as his Grandma and Grandpa! May you have many wonderful visits with him and thoroughly enjoy watching him become the little boy, teen and man that God created him to be! Hang on, it goes fast! Many prayers and blessings to you and your special family.🥰
Awwww, he is soooo adorable!!!
Oh, happy day! I am SO glad for you. Isn’t it the best ever to be a grandparent? And it will only get better and better. I cried every time we were blessed with a grandchild and held that dear new life for the first time. I always loved this Carl Sandburg quote: “A baby is God’s opinion that life should go on.”
Theo is precious and I am so happy for all of you!
Thanks, Lisa. We are so happy!
I could hear your mom laughing as I looked at those pictures. So glad you finally got to meet him. 💕
He is so very precious. We are so in love. And yes— I truly feel that both my mom and daddy are smiling down on him.
