I am a grandmother for the second time! Sweet little Anessa joined her cousin, Gabriel, as the lights of my life. She is perfect and I am ecstatic to have a granddaughter.
Our family has not welcomed a girl for nearly nineteen years and we are "little boy" strong - five of them between the ages of 5 and 13 - so her arrival has been highly anticipated.
Mollie is delighted to have a niece. Mitchell is thrilled to have acquired the the title of Uncle. My mother thinks that she is perfect and my sister visited the hospital 3 different times.
Gabe seems to adore her. As they left the hospital, he told his dad, "That baby just melted my heart." and that melted this grandmother's heart.
Her parents, Tim and Meg, are now adjusting to life as parents. I am so pleased to see my sons as fathers. They are loving and doting and have exceeded my expectations for them as parents. Gabriel and Anessa are lucky to be so loved.
