His daddy, Garrett, my first-born, was born on his actual due date: August 21, 1982. I was in hard labor with Garrett for 26.5 hours total.
He was 7#, 5oz and 21 inches long. There were 16 babies already in the hospital nursery the day Garrett was born...They were all GIRLS!!
He was the only BOY!! The nurses arranged the bassinets so that Garrett in his blue blanket was in the center of all the girl's in their pink ones.
The day we left, another little boy was born and took Garrett's place as 'center of attention'.
My youngest son is even staying at our house instead of his apartment 20-25 minutes away so that he can be here to hear the news and rush over to the hospital as a family.
Cameron, my youngest son, (left) is very excited to be an uncle. He told me last night that everything in his life will now focus on Baby Marcus...He wants the best life for Marcus that is possible. Very sweet!
You are the highlight of my world and the most precious addition to our family. We have been wanting you and waiting for you for a very long time. You chose the best parents possible. They will love and honor your spirit, teach and mold you with everything they know, hold and cuddle you in good times and in sad times, wish for you to have an empowering and successful life and most of all Love You More Than They Think Is Even Possible.
I, your Nana, am so excited to meet you. Have a safe journey out to us...We are waiting to embrace you and love you forever. Today is the day little man of mine...I hope to see you very soon....Love Nana
Dear Jackie and Garrett,
Neither of you fully understand how much I love you and cherish that you are giving me my first grandbaby. In a year or so, you will. You are both in for the experience of a lifetime...Like no other:
To be the blessed parents of Baby Marcus
Love him and each other unconditionally as we as parents love you....Love Momma
