    Oh congratulations- its something special to be grandma and spoil em rotten. I have 3 and spoil em equally rotten but separately- each knows I love them very much, but treated each as a separate little person with individuals. Each get separate items if I make the same for example a quilt each are treated to their favorite color, carton character etc... Best part was I got to hold them right after birth, and snuggle them; told em while I had em in my arms that I was gonna spoil em rotten, then gave em back to mom !LOL

    I know just how you fill, the first one is always soooo very special, and Jingle is right, you fall so in love with them till it hurts. My first was a grandson, and he is now twelve and we are still joined at the hip, i have taken care of him for most of his life, now my son has two sons and i take care of them also, i didn't think it could get any better, i found out last grandparents day my son and his wife are expecting baby number 3, and guess what, after four grandsons, i will have a little granddaughter, i am truly blessed. Boy will she be a little stinker, i will spoil her rotten, like her brothers before her and her two cousins. I wish your DDIL all the best, and she will be in my prayers.
    Thank you for sharing.

    A small update...My Mom and Dad are very excited about this new little one...Mom tells me yesterday that she and Dad think they will volunteer to babysit for 1 or 2 days a week...My Dad is the Bionic Man with all his replacement parts...and Mom has COPD and not in good health at all. Plus they are 80 years old.
    In order to not hurt their feelings, I said that with my Fibromyalgia and Reumatoid Arthritis that it might take all three of us to baby sit. So, they are now thinking that this is a wonderful idea...all of us babysitting at the same time. Kinda, tag team babysitting. They are soooo funny!

    Congratulations! it is such a joy to have the grandkids. Your life and loves will never be the same. Enjoy!

    Tinks's mom, my granddaughter was named after my mother. And any time she has visited MeeMaw Maxine, my mother wanted the crib in her room so she could take care of her. Mom turned 84 this year. My DGD will be 4 in Feb. Let them do what they can. The memories will last a lifetime.

    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Thanks, I intend to let them do as much as they can/want...I think that my son and DDIL might have some issue with G & G taking care of the baby all alone for 8 to 10 hours, but if they are here...they will be able to relax
