It's a BOY!!!!!!
This is my NEW little GRANDSON.
This is COOPER.
We are calling him Coop or Cooper.
He came into the world just 12 days ago.
He is stunningly gorgeous.
Gentry and Devan are doing well.
He spent some time in the NICU because he had a lung infection.
He is doing amazing now and was home a few days after he was born.
I am the happiest GRANDMOTHER. I am convinced that last Sunday when I visited them that he was "STOP taking my photo!!!!" I can't help it. He is so precious and so good. He rarely even cries but does like to stay up at night.
What a HUGE blessing to have our family have so many wonderful things happening to us. Cooper is ONE of the most FABULOUS miracles in my heart and life.
This is me. HOLDING my sweet grand baby for the very first time in the NICU. I was so happy that I don't think I could stop smiling. THIS is what I live for. FAMILY.....
His little rough start only made our family unite more in prayer and we all felt such peace. We loved him instantly. Devan is the best dad and I adore my son in law.
We just LOVE being together. We love each other and that is really ALL that counts.
This is Brian and he is amazing. He treats me like a princess and we fell in love instantly. It started one day when we met at a local restaurant at 5:30 pm and ordered sushi. We sat and talked until 10:00 pm without touching the food. It was instant and I felt like I had known him my entire life. We became instant best friends. I never thought this would happen again for me. NEVER... but I am so thankful it has. He is the one that makes me smile again. I truly had lost myself. I had to find myself and I did. I did not ever think I would every remarry because I would never settle. It would have to be the "perfect" person for me and for my family. Then I met him. At first it was hard. My girls did not even want to meet him. I understood and gave them that space. I knew that God had brought Brian into my life and heart. I knew this was just not a ordinary type of love. I knew he would be the one that I would spend the rest of my life with from the very start.
He supports my crazy life and schedule. He went to the NYC Stationery show this month to "see my world." He supported me and would go into Joann Fabric and Crafts stores and send me photos standing by my products. He has four amazing- fabulous children. We both put family first and love our children.
We are now officially engaged- we are so thankful for this in our life. Our children will be there when we get married June 8th. It is such a joyous and happy occasion. I am so grateful for the tender influence he is on my teenage boys. He is so kind and accepting as our family talks about Tyler. He looks as we share photos or share stories. He is that GIANT of a man.
