Welcome to “G” day of the A to Z Blog Challenge!
G is also for GAP! Yes, it’s really me…Back to blogging after an unplanned GAP of about 12 days! Work and graduate (another “G” word) study obligations demanded my time and I had to prioritize. Now, instead of trying to catch up on 12 blog posts, I’m just going to pick up where I left off and extend my A to Z posts into May.
OK, so here’s my “official” post:
Today’s topic is
G is for Granddaughters & Grandmother!
I first learned I would become a grandmother a little over five years ago. I was visiting my youngest daughter Joy and son-in-law Cory in New Hampshire. She walked up to me and handed me a folded napkin; inside was an apple seed. Then she told me that was about the size of my first grandchild! 🙂 Chloe Lyvia was born in September 2012.
About 2 1/2 years later, at Christmas time, Joy gave me an ornament from Chloe. It said, “Big Sister” on it! 🙂 Ava Marie was born in August 2014.
Early in 2016, I was on the phone with Joy, talking about something regarding Chloe. I was talking, trying to make a point, and Joy started saying, “Mom – Mom …MOM!!!” (urgent and nearly shouting by the third “Mom”). I finally stopped talking and asked what was wrong. She said, “Nothing. I’m just looking at a double pink line here!” Pregnancy test. POSITIVE! 🙂 Lillianna Grace was born in December 2016.
And Lilly at about the same age as her sisters in those other pics…
My son and daughter-in-law are expecting their first child…and they recently learned this little one is also going to be a girl–my FOURTH granddaughter, due in July! 🙂
I am enjoying being a grandmother–I just wish I lived closer to my granddaughters!
