"You're going to be a Grandma"!

16 posts in this topic

Hello All

 

So yesterday my youngest stepson rang and said "You're going to be a Granma!" :emoticons-yes: He and his lovely girlfriend have had a surprise visit from the stork! Of course she has the dominant gene set so said baby will be beautiful, particulalry if it's a girl which I would like...as if I have a say!

 

What's so funny about it is that my hubby has been saying forever that he wants to see a grandchild and we were talking about it just a few days before.

 

Now all I have to do is get rid of my sclerodactyly hands :angry: although I have adapted very well to them they are no good with babies because they're such fidgety little critters...do they bounce? <img src='http://www.sclero.org/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':huh:' />

 

Take care.

Many congratulations to you & your family, Amanda!!! :happy-day: :happy-day:

 

I don't really do babies so couldn't say whether they bounce, but I think perhaps not!!! :lol::lol:

 

May you have many years of pleasure from your grandchild ( whether boy or girl! ;) :VeryHappy: )

Wooeeeee!! That's wonderful news! Congratulations all around and big hugs (baby news warrants a hug).

 

OK, take it from me, an old hand at Littl'uns of many species. They do bounce. It's best if you can manage to drop them onto a soft surface, though! They also survive any amount of dog licking and holding a baby takes priority over everything else.

 

The biggest hazard in becoming a Granma is the tendency to go all mushy and start chucking your friends (cats, dogs, the postie~) under the chin and asking "Ooo's awoooza wittle cutie pie, den?" The second biggest is rushing out and buying a dozen sets of newborn 'onesies' - they can only wear them for, oh, maybe 5 minutes max before they've outgrown that size.

 

You are going to be a brilliant Granma!

 

love and hugs,

 

'Granny Mac'

Hi Amanda,

 

Congratulations to all, what lovely news for you and how very exciting. My daughter will be thirty next month, so hopefully it won't be too long before I hear the patter of tiny little feet, but I fear it may be another couple of years or so,(but one can hope) Would love to be able to knit `little things' before fingers and hands get too tight.

 

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!!

 

Take care

Congratulations Amanda on becoming a Granma to be. My 6th grandchild arrived 5 days ago. My 1st one since sclero. I was also worried about handling him, but have had a few lovely cuddles. My son and daughter-in-law bought a sling for me to use in case I needed it, but I haven't tried it out yet. I made a Nappy Cake for him even with these sclero hands, which was a big hit with everyone.

You will get so much enjoyment out of your grandchild.

Hi Amanda

 

Congratulations to you & your family on the lovely news of having an addition to the family.

 

At least Amanda when they start to cry you can always give them back to mum & dad and the rest of the time you can spoil them. :rolleyes:

Hello All

 

So as of 9:20 a.m. Saturday we became Grandma and Grandpa to a beautiful baby girl! :emoticons-line-dance: It was a difficult birth for my future daughter in law requiring a cesarean but by the end of the day she and my step son had forgotten all about being totally smitten with baby.

 

Hubby has already bought lots of pink baby clothes including a pair of pink shoes wich are so small and cute! Can't wait for all the shopping sprees when she's older! :yes:

 

Take care.
