Grandchildren

 

Congratulations ....to Freda ,Joan and Stuart ....

Freda and Joan's sons and their  wives have presented them with the precious gifts of Baby Girls  both these little girls have big brothers who will be delighted to have a sister  ,and yesterday Stuarts daughter Lesley and her husband ,turned Stuart and Jennifer into a very happy and proud Gran and Grandpa ,This little boy will be called Adam Daniel Steven,and weighed in  at 8lbs 8ozs,Jennifer and Stuart are first time Grandparents ,and those of us already blessed  know what a joy is in store for them .

Freda's little Grand daughter arrived on January 13th and is to be called Kiska Jane Freya  (I bet the Freya is for her dear Grandmother ) and isnt Kiska a pretty name ? They plan to call her Kizzie for short ! hmmm if she is as mischievous as another Kizzie I know, they better look out ,hee heee .

Alfies baby sister arrived yesterday January 14th she is to be called Leah Louise ,another pretty name and she weighed 7lb 4ozs .and a delighted Granny Joan ,posted some lovely pictures of the beautiful little girl on her entry yesterday

You can visit Freda, Joan and Stuart ,who you will find in my side bar ...please pop over and congratulate them ,A Grandchild is a most precious gift ,I know I have nine !

Here I am ,with eight of mine, at Stuarts wedding last year ,We couldnt find the eldest one Iain ,We tried all day to get them all together , the picture had to be taken without one in the end ,we all look a bit dishevelled it was nearly the end of a long happy day !The saddest thing ever... is that Mickmy late husband who would have been 69 yesterday never got to meet any of these wonderful children ,but I know like me, he would have been so proud of each and everyone of them ,and like me love them dearly .

Here is a picture of my sister Jean with her Grandchildren ,who are as precious to her as mine are to me ,

Oh, and as for the little dumpling in the pink crocheted dress playing with a bunch of skittles at the top of my entry,if she'd only known ........

As ever love from

Aw - congratulations to all, on the new arrivals!

Kiska weighed in at 8lbs 9oz, her mum is only about 5ft 1ins and of small build, but her tummy stuck out like a beach ball!  Bet she's glad to have got that out of the way :-D

Yes, you are right Jan, Freya is a more modern interpretation of Freda, and Jane is the other gran's middle name.  I hope to do a blog when I have received some photos from my son, I took my camera to the hospital only to find the batteries were too low, and I'd forgotten to take my phone. :-/

all the best
Freda

What a lovely entry Jan, There is, to my mind anyway, nothing like being a grandmother. I never realised it was possible to love another child mas much as I loved my own but my feelings for Roman completely overwhelm me. Grandchildren are a very precious gift.

Love Sandra xxxx

Grandchildren are wonderful !  I'm often sad that mine don't live closer, but when we do get together it is fun.  The picture of you with yours is precious.  Too bad the 9th wasn't in there.  I have 11 but don't see some very often.  My DDH  never saw his grandchildren either.  The 1st was born the spring after he died. I have a feeling though that he is watching down from heaven and is enjoying them all so much.  Take care !  'On Ya' - ma

You are so right Jan when you say grandchildren are a blessing!  I don't think anything in life could have prepared me for how I felt when each one of mine arrived.  It was such a wonderful feeling.  Congrats to all the grandmum's on the new arrivals!  Lovely picture of you with your family as well!

hi jan, what lovely grandchildren you have. I am still working on raising my own boys so I have a while yet before I have the pleasure of grandchildren. I know my mum adores her 4 grandsons, she was a reluctant 'nana' when i told her I was planning to get pregnant she said she was too young to be a granny! i was in my mid 20's mum was late 40's! . I know she wouldn't be without them now! I know how you feel about your husband missing out on your grandchildren, my dad died aged 39, so he never saw me graduate, have children and get married. He would have made a wonderful 'Grandad'. take care luv mrs t xx

Congratulations on all the new babies. I know what you mean about your husband not getting to know the grandchildren. My husband only got to know one of our four and that was for such a short time. Sometime life isn't fair but we know we have to go on, don't we? Hope you are feeling well Jan. Paula

lindachapmanuk said...

That was a lovely entry Jan, beautiful pictures of your brood...it must make you sad that poor Mick did not have the joy of meeting them...I was glad my dad knew my 3 sons but sadly he didn't get to meet either of my brothers sons...Linda x x
