Twenty-Six Years Ago Today, Taylor was Born

Taylor is my oldest granddaughter and I'm very proud of this young lady. The day she was born, her Daddy picked me up at a California airport. Grandma's mission was taking care of Nate, who was two years old at the time. And he was at the center of my world! The second day, my daughter was sent home from the hospital. This seemed odd to me, but she was doing just fine! On the third day we were sitting on a picnic table near the ocean, enjoying a picnic lunch:) Good grief, how things had changed through the years, since I delivered two babies:) It was mandatory, for a woman to be hospitalized at least five days! Anyway, Taylor turned twenty six years old today, she's a champ! Photo: Taken by Brian, her husband

@LadyDuck I tell Jay, 'Oh, it really doesn't matter!' When in reality, it does matter

Every grandchild is special to their grandparents. I see that from the eyes of my parents.

Happy Birthday to her. She’s a beautiful girl. My grandson was delivered in a pool of water in the living room. Things changed a lot in the last 26 years.

@kobesbuddy No, she wanted to give birth at home with my son and a doula there to help. A hospital was on standby. She’s ultra new age that way. lol I had my babies born within hours. I should have had more.

She looks pretty and thoughtful. I wish I could have stayed in the hospital for 5 days after I had my son.

I was in an OB ward, with three other women. We played card sitting on the pillows(on the floor) and ordered a pizza to the back fire escape! LOL

@kobesbuddy That sounds like fun..I was freaking out of it for about 24 hours. I had a long labor in which they had to resort to forceps. I almost laughed when they said I could go home the next day..of course the insurance wanted me out of there as quickly as possible!

Happy Birthday to your beautiful granddaughter Taylor. Yes things have really changed since I gave birth too. Now they practically walk out of the hospital right after the baby is born.
