Welcoming the Child of my Child!

Filed under: Family — Susan Stevenson @ 10:13 pm

Today, I received a text at 10:35am Alaska time.

We are at the hospital. Becky is dilated 8cm. Juliet is coming soon! (She was not due until August 14th)

At 11:11am (AK time), I received the text that she was here! (She was actually born 2:08pm Central Time, or 11:08am AK Time)

While I am a little disappointed that I didn’t get to see her born, I can’t begin to tell you how much joy is overflowing my heart. I can’t wait to meet her on Sunday!

Here are the very first photos of my precious granddaughter, daughter of my son Brandon and my beautiful daughter-in-love, Becky.

I saw this poem online, and I love it!

Child of my child, Heart of my heart.
Your smile bridges the years between us.
I am young again, discovering the world through your eyes.
You have the time to listen. And I have the time to spend.
Delighted to gaze at familiar, loved features, made new in you again.
Through you, I’ll see the future.
Through me, you’ll know the past.
In the present, we’ll love each other.
As long as these moments last.


  1. Congratulations! You will feel a love you have never felt before. We have one grandson and I can say our Jay melts my heart with every thought and sight of him. A grandchild is such a joy, blessing, and gift. Welcome to Grandma world. I am a GiGi, what will this baby know you by?

    Hi Kelly and Thank you!!! We are so happy and I am so excited to meet her this weekend when I fly out to Madison. I will be called “Mom Mom”. This is what my mother was to my sons, and what my dad’s mom was to me and my siblings. It is an honor to be called Mom Mom and both my grandmother and my mother were very special grandparents. I hope to have the same relationship with my granddaughter as she grows. 🙂
