Precious Baby Girl
Precious Baby Girl
Today is storytelling day for the Ultimate Blog Challenge, day 27. So here is my short, no my very short story about a Precious Baby Girl.
The nurse came out to the waiting area and told the dad, gramma and gramma that the baby would be arriving soon. It wasn’t long after, she came out again and told them it was a false alarm and it probably wouldn’t be until the next morning. The family was told they might as well go home and come back in the morning. Dad got up and started to leave, turning to gramma and grampa asking if they were leaving. Old wise grampa told the dad that he was staying right where he was. Reluctantly dad decided to stay also. It wasn’t much longer when the nurse rushed out again saying they had an emergency with the baby’s heart rate and would have to take the baby immediately. She directed dad, gramma and grampa to the delivery waiting room.
As everyone waited for what seemed eternity, the door opened and a nurse opened the door with a little bundle. She excitedly said, “It’s a little girl with all her fingers and toes!” Now dad was sitting in a chair while gramma and grampa were sitting on the sofa. When gramma saw the nurse hold out the little bundle, she jumped up, dove over the coffee table and grabbed the baby, all before anyone knew what as happening.
Gramma, the first to hold the precious little one, hugged her tight and wouldn’t let go. Finally she came to her senses and introduced the sweet baby to her grampa and dad. Meanwhile the nurse stood there not knowing what to think.
Gramma and grampa were so happy that there were no complications with the heart rate and the baby was beautiful and healthy. From the time she was tiny, her favorite spot was grampa’s shoulder. Once she was weaned from his shoulder, it was holding grampa’s hand or helping at work.
The two were inseparable and when she became an adult, nothing changed, she still had both her gramma and grampa wrapped around her finger. They wouldn’t have it any other way.
