It's A Boy!!!

I got my grandbaby at last! 7lbs 4oz, 20 inches long and lots of strawberry blonde hair. The mom and baby are doing well. He was born December 29th at 3:16 am.

I have given birth twice but seeing everything from the other end was a shock! How do men ever look at that end the same again. When you finally see the face however it is just so awesome. The baby came out not breathing and it took a lot of work to clear his lungs, luckily Jess had no idea there was something wrong. She had no clue as to why it took forever to see her baby. I however saw everything, the lifeless infant, the efforts it was taking to clear his lungs and the looks on the nurses face's. My oldest and I were literally holding our breath while the baby was being worked on. When we heard that first gurgle like cry, we both dropped our head's and sobbed. The baby's father was so great, even though he saw his lifeless son, he never left jessy's side or let on that their was a problem. He even handled Jessy turing into something out of the "Exorcist" with such a loving, calm demeanor.

My husband and I arrived at the hospital an hour after the kids and I stayed by Jess until 5:00am. It's so funny how that grandma adrenalin kicks in. LOL Eight hours of labor was not so bad for the first time. My hubby came by to meet the baby before going fishing at 5:00am in the morning. I slept for four hours, he got back and then off we went again to hold and smell that sweet, bathed baby. His name is Tuni Kugiocu (not sure of spelling, Kokachawoo is what it sounds like). I'm not so keen on the name so I'm calling him TK. We will be gramy and grampy until the baby picks his own name for us. I'm so excited I can't stay away from him!

Aww, Gramy Tammy!!!!

I`m so happy for your family. How you all must feel!

I loved your description of the birthing. When my son was born Dads weren`t allowed into the Delivery Room. Something I`ve always regretted.

Hmmm, My son may be getting engaged soon. I wonder, if they have a child...............? Could I be there?

Sara`s "Angel"; a perfect choice!

V said...

Hey, Gramy. Just saw your new pics on flickr!
Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!

Only I must tell you, reading your description of the dilivery almost made me pass-out from holding my breath right along with you. :)

Warmest hugs and best wishes always,

Oh Sweet Tammy!!!!!!

May God hold him close and whisper all things he needs to know. May your grandson share with you what God says before he gets too old and forgets the secrets of the universe.

Happy New Year indeed.
