One Candy Jar

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.  

I loved his first photo shoot that Cloud Dust Photography did at my house.  Check out these pictures.  So today, Happy Birthday to Candy Jar!!
