All that cooking I wrote about a few weeks ago was to celebrate the arrival of this precious gift:
We're officially grandparents! Meet sweet Emma May
She arrived on April 17th - 6lb 6oz - 19" long and we are smitten:
Everyone came for the weekend and we all soaked in every minute. She is just precious and SO sweet natured.
I didn't even take a thousand pictures because I was too busy inhaling time with this charming baby:
We all spent lots of time visiting
And passing Emma around
And every once in a while we let her sweet mama hold her
And it warms a mama's heart to see her boy become a daddy and take such a hand-on approach with his daughter:
The men manned the smokers:
Oh, I beg to differ! It's a VERY big deal!
I was thinking Gram and Pap.
She threw some names out there and I told her I got to chose and I could chose anything I wanted. I could be Pooh Bear if I wanted. Side note: I have a soft spot for Winnie the Pooh and I read a lot of that to the kids when they were little. I could even do all the voices although I'm pretty certain I've lost that ability.
Our girl's fella, Kenny, said he had a friend who called his grandpa PaDaddy and when our girl said I could be called Pooh Bear he piped up that it was perfect
"Ya'll could be Pooh Bear and PaDaddy" Now mind you, Kenny is from Oklahoma and he has an accent so imagine that being said with a strong southern drawl. Oh my word! We bout wet our britches we laughed so hard!
Now, I don't really want to be called Pooh Bear but when Kenny says it, it just cracks me up and I am afraid Pooh Bear and PaDaddy may stick, but I'm afraid we'll have to move to Oklahoma to live up to it. 😂 Our girl looked at a list and saw Moo-ma and she thought that was perfect since we raise cattle, but I vetoed that right quick.
I imagine Emma will name us anyway and it'll be perfect. Did I say we were smitten?
Emma, you have brought such joy into our lives! Adventure lies ahead!
