Grandchildren

My daughter just had her fifth baby yesterday- a 9 lb 11oz boy. My son had his first this summer, too- a 9 lb 12 oz boy. So now we have six grandchildren - 3 girls and 3 boys. For those of you who have grandchildren, aren't they the best?  I'm going tomorrow to help my daughter for a week and can't wait.

I had my first grandchild, a boy, this past June and I am still on a grandfather-high! Yes, it is a great feeling. Congrats to you on your newest addition.

Congratulations! I only have 1 granddaughter, age 3. I love being a grandmother and wish I lived closer to her. I read her a couple of books over the computer earlier today!

Congratulations!

We don't have any grandchildren but DW enjoys spoiling the grandnieces. The differences in two from the same parents are interesting. The oldest has been the proverbial little angel, and the second, well, has her own agenda, gets into everything, and her nephew says that despite taking all the precautions "We have poison control on speed dial".

So it'll get even more interesting as time goes on.
