I Have A New Grand Baby

As many of you may be aware of, I have patiently been awaiting the arrival of my newest grand baby.  Nathanial Charles (Nathan for short) was suppose to have arrived last week on April 12th, yet he would have no part of it.  Personally I think he just wanted to be a Taurus instead of an Aries yet who really knows. :-)  Regardless of the many walks, spicy foods, trampoline bouts, and other things that "are suppose to induce one", Nathan made it very clear that he would come when he wanted to.

Monday mom and dad were told to come into the hospital and the doctor would see about giving little Nathan some encouragement.  After a long day (noon til 2 am) mom was tuckered out and the dr decided to let everyone rest and they would start again Tuesday morning.  After a good nights rest the whole process was started up once again.

At 12:30 pm on April 20th, 2010, Nathan finally decided that his stay in the warmth of his momma's tummy was up and he might as well venture out into the new world to start his little life.  He weighed in at a nice hefty 9 pounds 5 ounces with a length of 21 and 1/4 inches. Mom and baby as well as everyone else are doing just fine.  As for this grandma.... I can not wait to travel east and hold that little bull in my arms.

There's this lovely birth prayer by Starhawk I always send when a new life comes to a friend's home:
"May you always find the cure whenever you need it.
May you always have enough to eat and to drink and to share with others.
May you find true love.
May you escape from every trap prepared for you.
May you have strength to survive.
Be free, be strong, be yourself.
Be happy, be proud of being who you are, be loved and be loving.
Live among flowers, surrounded by current waters.
Live to the heat of the sun, breathing pure air, nourished by the light of the moon and the stars.
Understand that you are welcome, that you are a precious gift for us, blessed be."
Thre's nothing else I can wish for little Nathanial, he's so cute!

Kisses from Nydia.
