This is still one of my absolute favorite shots of Jar!! I love it, and since today is his first birthday, I thought today's post should be about him.
A year ago today, I could barely concentrate thinking about Starburst and her husband being at the hospital. I remember going in that little delivery room (before all the pushing started) and thinking I'm not going to be able to see Starburst in pain. She's my grand-daughter, and I just couldn't do it.
Even when Lollipop had her first baby, I could still watch even though she was in pain. I knew she would get through it and I knew it was just something that she had to go through. But when it's your GRAND-daughter . . . well it's different. I couldn't watch.
I sat in the waiting room with Itty Bitty and the rest of the fam-damily, waiting for little Jar to be born. I was so relieved when they told me it was all over and everybody was fine. Is that weird, that my daughter's labor didn't bother me, but my grand-daughter's did? It was the same way when Bit O Honey had Itty Bitty, but there were complications with hers and she had a C-section, so I didn't really see her in pain. It was more like an operation than a delivery, you know? Actually, now that I think of it, Lollipop's was a C-section too. I guess that's the difference.
When he was born, I remember Starburst taking his little beanie hat off to show me his hair! The most amazing thing about him was his hair. He looked like a little Eskimo baby. He had so much hair he had to have a hair cut when he was 5 months old.
