“Abby Lee”

Grama Jeanie holding AbbyA tiny baby with beautiful eyes
Sent from heaven, out of the skies
Waited to greet me as you slumbered away
In your hospital room, I longed to stay.
Tiny fingers and tinier toes
Dark, pretty hair and a sweet button nose
When you let out a cry
it was a loud, strong sound
clearly not worried about the people around.
When the nurse took you from us
To irrigate your nose
Above all sounds in the building
Your healthy cries rose!
Tiny, but strong, your small arms flailed,
Little legs began kicking
The surprised nurse paled.
Aha! Thought I, to myself
This child will be no one to be left on a shelf!
She’s a robust spirit
Who is full of life
With a will made of iron
She’ll wage a determined life!
A force to be reckoned with
This infant will be
Yet the loveliest branch
On our family tree.
My heart overflowed with anticipation
At the wonderment of meeting
This tiny creation!
For, prior to this,
I’d touched you just once . . .
For before you were born,
Your mama, you see,
Was quite incredibly good to me.
Inside her tummy you’d stuck your bottom out
Your mama let me touch you . . .
So excited was I, that I nearly had to shout!
When suddenly I was aware
That my arms began to ache
With longing to hold you . . .
I could hardly wait!
Now little sweetheart, you’re finally here
How I treasure the moments
I can hold you near.
You’ve your daddy’s smile and dimpled chin . . .
Oftentimes when you giggle,
You wrinkle your nose
Just like HE did.
For truly, sweet angel,
You’re our gift from heaven above
God’s way of telling us
How very much we’re loved.

ON BECOMING A GRANDMOTHER AGAIN


Is there anything as beautiful as a newborn baby? Not that I’ve ever seen! Two days ago I received an unexpected telephone call notifying me that I’m a Gra’ma again!! Because this tiny little tike is one month early, it was hardly a phone call I’d anticipated!

Needless to say, my daughter and I immediately rushed over to pick-up Granny Pacer and off on a 70 mile jaunt we scurried! Could we get there fast enough? Undeniably, NO!!!!

We arrived at the hospital and knocked on Christy’s hospital room door, entered the room, and there before us sat Christy in bed, and ThatOne on a small sofa holding a tiny, swaddled bundle. He pulled back the receiving blanket enough so that we were able to see “Abby’s” tiny, lovely Angel Face.

This precious infant had been born only nine hours before our arrival there to greet her! And greet her, we did. Granny Pacer, Shan and I all got to hold and cuddle her. This lucky little angel has a wonderful big sister who is already protective of her (when the nurse took Abby out of the room for a few minutes, her big sister was quick to ask, “Where did she take her?!”)

Precious little Abby weighed 5 lbs. 2 oz. at birth and was 18 inches long. She has gorgeous dark brown hair just like her mommy and daddy and her cousin Maddy!

No doubt about it . . . this tiny little angel is already very loved and treasured and I’m just dying to spend lots and lots of time getting to know her!
