Sunlover,

Well youve caught up to me with 1 grandson. Now you can have four(4) granddaughters to catch up with me on granddaughters.

What are the 3 things that grandsons learn in the womb?

Distance, aim and surprise.

Judy,

Congratulations. So happy for you, your daughter and son-in-law.

Good luck too on your scan. If my memory serves me correctly, the 22nd is Fox's next visit too. Expecting great news twofer style.

One of the distinctive features of our threads here is the good news we hear and the nice events we learn of - it all helps to keep the spirits up doesn't it? That said, I couldn't see Kathy's dawg and now I can't see much of Declan in your picture, Judy. Do you have another shot of the young fella you could maybe upload into your personal pages? (But don't replace your existing photo - pictures like yours and Alice's always raise my spirits.)

Congrats to another grandma!! My daughter-in-law was the only person nearby who could get to the Dr's office when I got the news of my cancer. She was 7 mo. pregnant at the time. My vow, desire, hope and dream in 2006 was "I want to be at your wedding." to the new baby born 8-18-06. The "baby" will be 6 this Saturday; and she and her sister are a wondeful handful.
Both of us Grandmas are former PE teachers-but with a different slant on life. I'm the crazy, uninhibited one. We make messes, play dress up, sew costumes, eat ice cream for breakfast (it is dairy, after all), and jump on the bed.
So here's to having more crazy grandmas in this world. Enjoy Declan for many years and treasure your time together.

Now that's more like it Judy. Two great additions to the picture gallery and a lovely new addition to the family!! Well done - we still get to keep the super shot of you and getting soppy over your grandson hasn't got in the way of your sense of humour either!

Judy, I think I may have started something in pointing you to the 'expressions' facility. Thank heavens it's something nice! Another charming picture of Declan and another lovely shot of yourself as a bonus.

Such reminders of how good life can be are uplifting for the spirits of us all, as iceman and Gary have always shown us.
