Today brings reflections on my 'grandmother' status. Except it's really a 'MawMaw' status, since in our family the grandmother is a generation older than the mawamaw, lol.
Chloe' Annette Cook arrived safely into the world yesterday around 11:30 a.m. She weighed 5lb 11oz and is healthy, just small. Late yesterday evening there was some concern with her breathing, and today we'll find out more what the doctors meant by that. (update: all is cleared and both baby and mother are going home today.)
For a little while during delivery, I thought we were going to lose Zack, but he held up and had recovered enough to cut the cord when it was all done.
Chloe's birthday is very close to Lillie's birthday. Lillie is my first grandbaby, born to Amanda Stanton, Gary's oldest daughter. She's turning 3 on Monday. I don't see Lillie very often because I live up here and they live down in LA.
And early next year, Gabrielle will produce the third grandbaby, hopefully not during a February ice storm.
I'm afraid I'm not a very motherly mother (not the 'Betty Crocker' kind who bakes cookies, lol), and even farther from a grandmotherly grandmother. But seeing how they're all beginnning to pile up now, I might ought to begin doing more of whatever it is that mawmaws are supposed to be doing.
