My grandson was born this Friday March the 13th!! I am so excited. My son C.J. and his wife Tiffany are the proud parents. I am going down to see the baby with my sister and Elizabeth. I can finally travel.

I remember when C.J was born, we both almost died. He was my first born and I was 16 years old. I was in labor with him for 3 days. They finally had to deliver him C-Section. I didn't get to see him for 3 days after he was born because I was in such bad shape. And he was in bad shape too. I cried because I wanted to see him so bad.

I had my sister take a Polaroid picture of him so I could see him. He was beautiful..They nicknamed him Tiger in the nursery because he was tearing his I.V's out. C.J was a beautiful boy with a beautiful heart who grew into a beautiful man with a beautiful heart.

This is the song I picked to play during the slide show for his wedding. They had pictures of him growing up as a little boy all the way to when he was grown. This song always reminded me of him so much. It is Godspeed by the Dixie Chicks..

I love you C.J. and congratulations to you and Tiffany on your beautiful baby boy...

The only thing missing is John, he would be so happy to have a grandson. I wish so bad that he was here. Elizabeth and I cried a lot over that today..Times like these I feel my heart break for him not being here. But I rejoice at my baby grandson being born as well.

I believe John sees his little grandson. I believe Patrick see's all of his. I don't think they have missed a single thing.
Congratulations to the new Grandma and to the parents.

Congratulations, grandma! Grandparenting is one of the most joyous dimensions in life, next to motherhood.

Congratulations to you, and to your son and his wife.
