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.
