Baby George came two weeks early… My dad George had no clue his name sake was born, and no clue he would even have a name sake.
I decided to take my parents for a ride on the day Baby George came into the world… Being a beautiful sunny day they were thrilled about getting out of the house for a few hours. They had no clue they were about to meet their great grandchild for the first time.
As I pulled up to the light near the hospital… I said ” oh by the way, I forgot to mentioned I helped deliver a baby this morning and we are about to see “it” still keeping them in the dark about the sex.
Needless to say they were thrilled, my 89 year old dad with his walker and my 88 year old mom with very bad knees
made their way down the very long hallways of the maternity ward anxiously waiting to meet their new great grandchild.
When we finally arrived at room 340, there he was little George… When my daughter said “guess what we named the baby?” My dad, thinking he was funny said “George”… When my daughter said “yes we named him George after you”, the surprised look on my dads face was priceless… He could not have been any prouder… He said “I would have never guessed in a million years you would name your baby George”
What a beautiful gesture my daughter did for my dad naming her son George…
His name will live on…
In Love with my new grandson
In Awe of his name George
In Wonder if he will take after George…
