I was on a wild adventure this past week. No apologies when I say I didn’t mind being away from the blogging world for one minute…excitement was happening.
I was in Sebastian where my daughter and her husband live to attend the birth of my granddaughter and first grandchild. I left home last Saturday to be ready if the labor began over the weekend. Sebastian is on the east coast of Florida, south of Melbourne. It’s a sleepy, small retirement community…quiet and breezy from the winds coming off the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean.
Mira Jaya Rose-Hutner was born Monday night, September 3rd (Labor Day) at the Indian River Medical Center in Vero Beach. She weighed 8lbs. 6oz. and was 20 ½ inches long. She came into the world very curious and looking around and seemingly listening when you spoke quietly to her. Her Daddy held her close after she had been checked out…you could feel the love. My daughter and the baby are doing very well.
I arrived back home last night still flying high over the addition of this sweet, precious, new being in our family. The best news of all…I’ve been asked to take care of little Mira when her Mom returns to work in a few weeks. I’ll be moving over there within the next couple of months. I can’t believe my good fortune.
Sharing this today with Occupy Blogosphere over at Soul Dipper’s place. What’s more inspiring than a new little being entering our world?
