Happy Birthday PJ

PJ's First Birthday

Today is my grandson's 4th birthday!
He's already taken the physical for pre-school.
Time is definitely flying...

His parents were already living in this area when his mama called to let me know they were going to induce labor. The timing was just perfect for this grandma as we'd already scheduled a vacation week, and were heading up here on that very day!
While packing up a load, mama calls and asks when we're leaving, because the labor was underway. I assured her this labor would take quite a while and even though the trip would take almost 3 hours, I'd be there for the birth.
Wrong!
By the time I got to the hospital, the receptionist was so excited she blurted out "You've got a grandson!" (It's a small, two-story hospital, which obviuosly doesn't see much action.)
By the time I got upstairs, my grandson was watching basketball with his dad!
So much for the typical (meaning long) first-time delivery.
If my daughter ever has another baby, I'm thinking about buying dad a catcher's mitt and letting him handle the delivery...

SoozieQ-
I've been checking for a new posting from you!
Isn't this just the typical 'It's my first birthday and I get to eat like a little piggie' photo?
I'll relay your message!

Squirl-
Thanks for the birthday wishes.
(I went over to Bucky's and wished her a belated.)
That really was a fast delivery! I've had three, and never seen one pop out so quickly.

Kat-
She knows she's lucky with that fast delivery. She's tiny, and PJ was big, but she did a 'hecka' lot of walking during her pregnancy which probably helped.

Cheesecakey-
Thanks!
I still won't be blogging as much as before, but will be doing it occasionally.
I'll have to drop by and see if you've written about your new job yet.

Rae Ann-
Amen!
PJ's going to be so excited when I show him all the birthday greetings here!
I'm thinking someday you'll be the cool grandma with the Corvette?

AAAAWWWWW!!!!! Happy birthday PJ!!!!

Sounds like my delivery. Mom still says I shot out, they did the sucky thing to my lungs, I yelped and said something like "hi."

Been crying and fussing ever since :). Miss you SB!!!

Kitty!
Are you telling me that I get to look forward to a male version of you (with my grandson) in the future?
I'm afraid to visit your blog now- with the quitting of smoking and your svelte new body... I'm so totally jealous!

I love your new picture (with Mateo.)
My last baby (PJ's mom) came real fast too. I think I was in the hospital maybe 2 hours?
Thanks for the birthday wishes!
