KC is the sunshine in my life

Kadence Callisa Berry (so far), is the light of my life. She was born January 26, 2009.  This young lady is my new lease on life. A little background may help here. Amber, her mother was born when I was in my early thirties.  She said she would never get pregnant because she refused to go through all that pain. At the age of 29, that c hanged.

She’s single and has had her share of boyfriends, most of whom were just passing fancies. She got pregnant even though she used protection.  It was during this time and after she was pregnant that she met Jared. This guy fits in the family like a glove! When her due date approached, he took two weeks off work to spend with her. He stayed with Amber in her room at the hospital and was there to cut the cord. These new birthing suites are nice! He had a bed there also. I made it there very shortly after she was born. Her labor period was long, a touch over fifteen minutes. Next time she get’s pregnant, she better live across the street from the hospital.

Ok, I digress. Amber was born on January 15th. The boys Aaron and Kyle joined us four years later on January 27th. Kaydence wasn’t about to be left out of this January birthday rush. Jared and Amber aren’t married, yet. That’s why the last name confusion. Amber could not have picked a better person to be Kaydences dad.

This young lady is bright, cheerful and ahead of schedule. That is what Amber did. I guesss one might say I’m a bit proud of this young lady. Let me leave you wit a picture or two.

  2. Congratulations, Grandpa. She’s beautiful. Nothing like a baby to give you gray hairs and keep you young, all at the same time.

  3. Man do I know what you’re feeling and the proud swell in your heart and the “new lease on life” feeling. Grandkids make you want to take care of yourself and live to be like a million, right?

    Love the post, thanks, and what an adorable child. Love her to life, my friend.

  4. I don’t have any grandkids yet, so I’m jealous! I do get to share my sister’s though, so I understand a little of how you feel. Enjoy spoiling her!

  7. Aren’t grandkids great? I have three of them now, 4, 2 and 20 months. But they do remind me why God gave them to us young! Congrats!

  8. Beautiful and so considerate to cause only 15 minutes of pain!
    I’ve never had a child, but have heard plenty of horror stories about difficult deliveries.
    Too old to have one now, but Rascal and the DH serve instead in that respect.
    Glad you’re enjoying the granddaughter.
