Nothing like a new granddaughter to make you feel so blessed! Isn’t she gorgeous? She was born this Fall to our oldest son and his wife. Because this is a public blog, the baby is known as ‘D’ and her older sister is referred to as ‘C’. Big sis explained that her little sister is “very soft!” I know Grandma wishes her skin was as soft as little D’s!
She is now smiling and making all sorts of sounds, bubbles, and giggles. She is very expressive and cuddly. It’s amazing to see how they resemble their parents and even our parents. Genetics is an amazing thing! How can a baby girl look so much like her father when she laughs, and then look like her mamma when she curious about her surroundings? I love to hold her and have the chance to babysit. My hope is to be able to watch her more (like I did her big sister), when mommy goes back to work. Being a grandparent and being retired is just awesome! The bond with our grandchildren is so special. I didn’t realize there was a Grandma Club, but now that I am a member, I get it, and thrilled to be a part of it. I hope there are many more babies to come.
