Happy Birthday My Gorgeous Granddaughter!

I have been looking at some of my old journal recently.  When this date snuck up on me I thought to myself...hmmm...I can blog about the years from then to now? or maybe, how I love this granddaugher.  She was my first grandchild. I will not reveal the birth year...we have our privacy you know...; )

On this date (ahem) several years ago, Athena was born at Doctors Hospital in Texas.  Her poor mother's labor room was over flowing with family, myself, her sister Lil' Miss Sunshine, and Red Beard.  It had not been planned that way but it was a great experience (for the rest of us).
We all laughed when Red Beard left long enough to attend the breast feeding class that TexasBlu had not taken yet.  He was full of commentary when he got back. 
Later Lil' Miss Sunshine was pulled in to coaching when Red Beard began to hyperventilate while breathing with TexasBlu and had to sit down.  Red Beard was not one to stand back and watch. When TexasBlu went into transition stage, Red Beard inched into Dr Campbell's space and put his hand on the area that he had just been told was sterile and to stay out of.  The main thing that TexasBlu remembered was Dr Campbell saying "Use your head, Red Beard!"

 The little red head that was born was beautiful, full of personality and her father was crazy about her.  They have played through the years.

Her Aunt Me and I have been her captive admirers since she was born.  She is wonderful and I am so proud of the young lady she is turning into.
Happy Birthday Sweetie,
Your GrandmomE loves you. <3
