Having a Grandchild sure has changed

Having a Grandchild sure has changed.

Today we were so very blessed when our daughter had her first child.  This should be old hat to us though.  This is our 6th Grandchild spread over a 10 year period.  Our youngest Grandchild, with the exception of our newest, is 4 years old.

The whole process has changed so much in just 4 short years.  Today I think the entire neighborhood could have been in the room to witness the birth had the parents granted permission.  Thankfully they did not.  They did allow the entire crowd waiting patiently in the waiting room to stop in and visit within about 30 minutes of our new Grandsons birth.  There must have been 15 or 20 of us all in the room with them.  I wonder what Little Noah was thinking.  He had been out in the world for just minutes and yet it seemed the whole world was there to say hello all at the same time.

The labor room, the delivery room, and the babies room were all the same.  They didn't have the expectant Mom get ready for birth in one room then at just the right moment move her into the delivery room and once the blessed moment was over wheel her into another room and bring baby along a little later.  Baby didn't stay in the Nursery where everyone went to peer through the window at all the little ones trying to find their special one.

Nope.  It all took place right there in one room.  In the end it was actually pretty cool.  But it was quite different from the last time I remember. 

I must be getting old.

I am also so very blessed and thankful everyone are doing great.

I still can't believe my daughter and son-in-law were texting even during the birthing. 

Having a Grandchild sure has changed.

I often tell my kids that if the option had existed to skip the kids and go straight to the Grandkids that would have been the option to take.  They just remeind me that without them, there would be no Grandkids. LOL

Congratulations.  My dad always says that if he had known grandkids were so much fun he would have skipped us all together.
