There's No Better Feeling in the Whole Wide World!

Last night, hubby and I became Grandparents! There can't possibly be a better feeling in the world...To hold your child's child for the first time is emotional, that's for sure, and I'm now finding it difficult to describe the magical feelings going on inside of me...If you've been lucky enough to experience becoming a grandparent, then I know you will understand how I might be struggling to put it all into words at the moment.

As we travelled back from a weekend away in Cornwall, we received news from our son-in-law-to-be that our gorgeous girl had gone into labour a few days early. We then continued to receive a running commentary via text messages of how things were going that night! We got home late and I couldn't sleep until I knew their tiny treasure had made it safely into the world...We finally heard just after midnight...

We got to meet our gorgeous girl's own little gorgeous girl, this afternoon...When I look at the photographs I was able to take, my heart just melts...It makes me well-up when I think of my lovely Nan missing her by just a few short months, but sadly I think that sort of thing happens in families...Our daughter has given her new baby, her Great Great Nan's name as her middle name...a lovely thought and one I know my Mum will be deeply touched by.
Welcome to the world gorgeous little girl...you are going to be so loved!
