I'm officially a Grandma
Well he is finally here, actually he is 2 weeks early...Jack. I am now at age 39 a grandmother. Everyone asks me how I feel and then wince as if I am about to hit them, but there is nothing more amazing than seeing your child have a child. Only a grandparent can truly understand that I suppose. Christina was made for having babies (even though she doesn't think so). Her water broke at 11:40 am on the 16th of August, but she said she only felt what she thought was one contraction. An hour later she had one more and it hurt a little more. So I picked up Jayson and we went to lunch..waiting. Right as we finish, she text messaged me that she had 8 in the last 40 mins. and they really hurt. Well, she thought they did. She was admitted and dialated to a 5 by the time we paid our check and arrived at Renown. Now they were so close they couldn't keep track. It was now approaching 2 o'clock, by 4 she was at an 8 and going pretty good, 4:20 they called Dr. Klaich and told him she was ready. She could have had that baby by 5 but it was terrifying to her so she was a little resistant but finally she got down to business and Jack Sparrow (yes Sparrow) Reese-Lynch was born at 5:40, looking just like his father. The only difference is....he got Jay Sr's and Chrissi's side of the families dimples!!! Of course I think he is adorable and handsome. Last night was thier first night home alone with Jack and he gave them a run for thier money......with 4 phone calls to Grandma (it was gas) after discovering the importance of burping him after feeding, they actually got a little sleep, I am available to stay over night for relief duty, but it looks like Jayson and Christina have it handled, so I may get to charge over thier and take Jack off thier hands for a little while, (my fingers are crossed) or I will just visit when am invited over, (I told them to bond and let me know when I can come back over). So for now.......Grandma Beautiful out.
