My Mom Peep cries when she’s happy. Does that happen to you? Here she is today SO HAPPY because…

Nick Kaitlyn and Aubree

She has a new great-grandbaby Aubree! Born at 2:11 p.m. to Nick and Kaitlyn. Aubree is 7 lbs. 6 ounces and 20 inches long. Perfect and beautiful.

And Mom Peep cries. Maybe cause she’s so happy? Maybe cause she’s a tinge sad? Do you remember that just 1 year and 3 weeks ago a beautiful baby girl named Hailey was born to Nick and Kaitlyn (that’s the hospital pic below). But she became sick and went to heaven at just over 6 weeks old.

These loving young parents decided to try again and God blessed them with a pregnancy and today Baby Aubree is here.

So is it okay for Mom Peep to cry? I say yes. The last few days I’ve been jumping off Dad’s lap and snuggling close with Mom Peep, laying my warm body alongside her and draping my head over her cold feet or on her legs.  I think she feels the comfort I’ve been trying to give her because I can tell she’s been on edge a little bit with the baby coming. You’d think she was having the baby, huh?

But you don’t know my Mom Peep. She feels things very deeply, and her tears today are a bit of sadness that Hailey isn’t here (though she is watching from heaven, of that we are sure). Her tears are also sadness that she’s so far away and can’t put her arms around Nick and Kaitlyn right now, but later today the kids will set up the laptop at the hospital and Mom can’t wait for them to Skype.

And her tears are of JOY and HAPPINESS and LOVE for the new life that God has blessed our family with, especially the love that Aubree’s Mommy and Daddy can’t wait to give to her.

So let the tears fall, Mom, for we know that happiness and sadness are all a part of life. And it’s when you feel…really feel…that you are most alive.

Oh, and Mom Peep already has her trip in the works to go see the new Great-Grandbaby. You go, Mom Peep!

Wiggles and Woofs to new Baby Aubree! I think I might send her my little brown bear that says Hug Me on it.

    Smiling and crying over your wonderful news with you Charlie, and Mom Peep–how beautiful is this post and the pictures! God truly blessed your family in spite of the heartache of a year ago. Joy! New life! Blessed Christmas!

      Thank you so much! Mom Peep is incredibly happy and thrilled that Skype is keeping her connected to the new life and family. They skyped today for an hour and it feels so good to Mom Peep to see them and hear Aubree coo. Technology rocks!
      Wiggles to you,

    Great joy, CB & BJ, glad little Aubree is there safe & sound, she is healthy and that Mom & Dad seems so happy. The before & after pics seem so much alike you would never guess they were not the same ones just took with different clothes and views. Yes it is alright to cry when happy its good she can do that. You love & cuddle close to peep mom and take good care of her now.

      So happy you understand my Mom Peep’s emotions. She’s all over the place sometimes and Dad doesn’t always understand why she cries. But happy tears are good too…I think they help her cope.
      We are SO happy Baby Aubree is healthy and doing so well. Mom and Dad too. Hopefully home from the hospital today or tomorrow!
      Wiggly Woofs,

    Charlie, that’s great! I’m sure the parents will love Aubree greatly although they miss Hailey badly. It’s ok for your Mom peep to be both happy and sad. I’d save your woofs for when Aubree is older! Babies need their sleep!

    • December 7, 2013 at 3:33 pm

      You are so true. They do miss Baby Hailey badly, but they LOVE having new Baby Aubree. And mums the word…no woofs here from me to wake her!
