New granddaughter - Amelia - Update version 1.2

The wait is over.

Great excitement in the family at the arrival of granddaughter no1 (grandchild no2) today.

All I had this morning was vital statistics. She weighed in at 3.9 kgs (8.6pounds) and is 52 centimetres (20.5 inches) long and has a mop of dark hair. Name - mom and dad have decided - AMELIA (14/09/07).

But now I have met her and I am besotted.

Amazing how quickly the love for these little people grows.

Dad as happy as a dog with two tails, doing the burping thing

I now know for sure that she is the best and most beautiful granddaughter in the world and that I am going to spoil her rotten. Grandpa privileges.

OK, I can see that some grandparents may be bristling at my presumption. Don't worry yours are also the best. I have this theory that sorts out any arguments of this nature.

I once boasted to a friend that I had the best grandchild in the world. She immediately refuted my claim, as any good granny will, by saying that her two were the best. That posed a problem, because if I believed that my grandson is the best (and he is), where does that leave all the other poor misguided grandparents.

I was about to contradict her, knowing that this could turn ugly (you don’t want to mess with a granny where her grandchildren are concerned), when the answer came to me.

In the world of grandparents we all live on our own little planets in parallel universes. This means we can all lay claim to the fact that our grandchildren are the best in the world, without fear of contradiction.

So if you say your grandchildren are the best I will just smile, because they are in your universe, just as mine are in mine.

Thanks MrsN will pass on the message.

Hi SLB - beautiful she definitely is. Never ceases to amaze me how much love one can have for these little people. There is plenty of it in our family.

Thanks for stopping by dot. I remember how special my grandparents were to me and I want to continue the legacy. I make sure that the time we spend together is quality time and that we make lots of fun memories.

of course, in my humble opinion, she and wee E are the best and most adorable and brilliant and delightful, in any universe!
