Mary Countiss Roberson has arrived!!!

Heaven sent a special blessing to me on October 2 at 0048----Mary Countiss Roberson---my first grandchild. She weighed 7 lb. 12.8 oz. Mom, dad, and baby are doing well. They came home from the hospital yesterday and are trying to get settled in. Thursday morning began with a phone call at 6 in the morning. "Hey mom, you gonna go with us to the doctor today?" and it was on from there. Straight to the hospital from the doctors office--via a trip thru McDonalds for a sausage and biscuit. Then they started the Pitocin on her about noon and angel baby arrived shortly after midnight. All my grandmother friends say this is gonna be a wonderful ride for me, and so far they are correct. I posted a pic on Facebook where she was sort of smiling and one of my dearest friends commented that "I would be smiling too if I know my grandma was Patsy". My husband laughed and said that is for sure. That little girl is gonna be spoiled. Both her uncles love her. The little one just sits and watches. He walks by occasionally and rubs her cheek and whispers to her. Big uncle is on his way to see her today.

Ya'll have a blessed week. I hope Heaven delivers many more little blessings like the one above this week. Be safe, happy, healthy. Hug those you love. Smile and laugh!! Remember this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and wear your pink. Pray for our soldiers and their families. Be creative!! God bless ya'll!!!


  1. You are in for the most beautiful time of your life...she is the most beautiful baby too!

  2. HOW EXCITING!! I'm not a grandmother (or even a mother for that matter), but your friends are right. You will absolutely love it. I was my grandma's first grandchild, and although she has 14 grandchildren now, we will always have a special bond. She truly is like a second mother to me. Little Mary is such a gorgeous baby. Enjoy the ride!

  3. the rosey pink cheeks!
