Little Sydney Sue! You’re such a gift, a miracle. How did we ever do without you in our family! How blessed are we! Welcome!
It takes me back to the birth of your Mommy, my granddaughter. Her little whiskey voice has always given me joy. Her humor has brightened my days. Her creative flair has been evident in her dress, hair and personality. I have prayed that God would bring just the right man into her life, just the right mate. Well, God knows what he’s doing, no question about that! Enter Nick, your Daddy…
You, Little Princess, have been anticipated with deep love from a very large family. You are the first grandchild of my oldest son, your Grandpa Mike. And he has loved you from the moment you were conceived. While waiting for you to arrive, I’ve loved my visits to your bedroom, the colors carefully chosen and lovingly designed and carried out by your Mommy and Daddy. Your first-time-Grandma, and others added a helping hand and their touch here and there – painting and loving, touching and anticipating. Preparing for you.
Your Daddy made an original and perfect name signature for your bedroom door. Mamma washed everything that would touch you – clothes, bedding, furniture. And stocked up on antibacterial soap for we visitors. Grandpa got a changing table for you. Grandma got a rocking chair. Great-grandma helped with your crib. Your beautiful pink and brown room was ready long before you arrived. Your Godparents were chosen – Auntie Sara and Uncle Eric. Who better! You are so loved – already!
Auntie Sara and Ellie hosted a gift shower and your Mommy and Daddy were ready for Sydney Sue to make her appearance….the countdown began.
And finally you arrived! Your Daddy called and we came to see you at the hospital for the first time. I cried. I touched your little hands and little feet. I ask God to bless and protect you. And then I got to hold you in my arms! I got to bless you again. I am so fulfilled. I am here for you whenever you need me. I will sing to you. I will talk to you. I will listen to you. I will be praying for you as long as I’m alive – and longer.
I’m GG, your Great-Grandmother. And I love you beyond words!
I’m so grateful and very blessed!
