I got to meet my granddaughter today...
She is tiny...she has perfect toes and slate eyes...she was dressed in a lil pink dress and her dark hair has a little bow.
She furrows her brow, and smiles, she holds your gaze, like she is trying to understand.
I felt mixed emotions getting to see and hold her today.
I held her and breathed in her baby sweetness, I drank in the coos and the smiles...
I pinched back the tears as I finally handed her back to her mommy.
I was elated, sad, happy, wistful and crushed all at the same time.
Also for the first time in a long time, I was able to wrap my arms around Alyssa and give her a hug.
The whole thing leaves me feeling thoughtful and rather pensive.
