The Grandparent Thread

Some of us have been on this board so long that now we are either grandparents or about to be grandparents - so I'm starting a thread for us. Because this is pretty exciting.

My daughter-in-law is expecting a boy!

    :)>- :D :-c Someday, I'd like my kids to find good partners and start families if they would like that. I know I'd be thrilled if they are--I love little ones and for now and happy with my one grand niece and grand nephew.

    Congrats alh, dstark and all the already grandparents.

    I can't wait to be a gram but S is only 22 so I think I'll be waiting for years. :(

    juniebug: Can you sleep? Are they close? I love your grandmama name!

    ...............................................................

    One of my great-grandmamas was "Big Mama"

    That is what I want my name to be! (I'm 5'1")

    But I'm not asking for anything. I'm only going to say if someone asks me. I'll answer to anything.

    @alh, I'm sleeping better than DIL! And I'm far away : (. I plan to visit often, though. Congrats to you, too!

    I am bookmarking this thread in the hopes that I can make an announcement in the near future! My DIL is ready to have children, it is just a matter of when it happens. We haven't seen them since Thanksgiving and will be visiting this weekend with them; I will be keeping a sharp eye on what she does (or doesn't drink); usually that is the give away!! ;)

    Hurrah for all the grandparents and grandparents to be. Like some others, I'll have to call this the vicarious thrills thread for now.

    @frazzled1, @alwaysamom, all grandparents and all future grandparents, congratulations.

    @emilybee, thanks.

    @alh, I do have photos of my granddaughter's ultrasound. They are on my phone. In the latest photo, I can see her head and other parts of her body. It's amazing! Whenever my daughter or son-in-law sends me a new photo, I get a jolt of adrenalin or whatever it is running through me! It's an awesome feeling!

    I agree with you about the ultrasound photos!
