One down, Six to go...

I didn't cry when her name was read. I didn't cry when I saw her face on the ju

mbo screen, singing

I was SO proud of myself. I thought, see? I am not going to be one of THOSE moms who gets all weepy and teary and says things like "my baby!"
Then, I looked through the viewfinder and took this picture.
Always thought of these two as my "starter kids". They were my first girl and first boy, then there is a large spread between them and my "little ones." And so I snapped the picture, and then laughed as I couldn't control the tears. I think I may have even said, "My babies."

I am SO not as cool as I thought I was.

None of us are as cool as we think. It helps me to not think I'm cool from the very beginning, then I'm not disappointed. It's not hard for me.

Yes, it's beautiful of the two of them. It would bring tears to anyone's eyes, especially a mom. We are so proud of this granddaughter, as well as all the rest of them.
