My Granddaughter arrived last Friday 09/05/08. She weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces and is 19 1/2 inches. She was delivered c-section because her heart rate went way down 4 times in a 2 hour period. She was evidently laying on the cord and her head was stuck on the pelvic bone sideways. I don't care how she got here she is absolutely beautiful [IMG]http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h151/newpommom/100_1665.jpg[/IMG]
Welcome to the "gramma" club from the grandmother of 11 and the great grandmother of 1. I love having grand kids . I am sure you will soon find out for yourself just how special this relationship is. I had wonderful grandparents and have tried to make sure I am making special memories with my own grand children that will endure long after I am gone from their lives. One of our events is gathering for Halloween even the kids who live out of state come to spend the holiday with their cousins and the rest of the family. It is a relaxed and non stress filled get together. We much prefer this to the usual Christmas/New Year gathering that most families plan.
