  • The best shot I've taken all year....

    My first grandchild...



    It took me a while to get my head around this, but after seeing the scan, it's all become very real.

    Re: The best shot I've taken all year....

    Congratulations Janet.

    How does it feel with the thought of being a grandmother? I know what I thought being a father for the first time, "Oh no, what have I done?" (yes, I'd been married for a few years)

    I'm sure you will be over the moon when the baby arrives.

        Congratulations Janet. For me, becoming a grandad was one of the best moments in my life. You have many wonderful moments to come I'm sure and plenty of photo opportunities.

          Congratulations Janet. Let the good time roll. As one who has also just recently joined the ranks of Grandparent I find the words 'Walking in the air' quite appropriate. Congrats also the the future Mum & Dad.

                Thanks for the good wishes! I've been dying to tell someone, but wanted to wait until the first scan...

                Honestly, my son is 34 now...I never thought this day would happen, but I'm chuffed to bits.

                  Congratulations, Janet, as someone who now has 5 grandchildren I can understand a little of where you're coming from.

                    Just thought I would drop in to say "Oh how lovely" - from someone who has seven.

                          I became "Grampa" almost two years ago and apart from really feeling my age I've loved it. Every time I see her (not often enough!) she's changed. And trying to capture that perfect shot.........
                          Many congrats

                            Now I've just found out I'm going to be a grand parent too! I'm starting to feel older already.

                            It's still early days, so I hope all goes well with my eldest daughter & baby. It'll be some months after your grand child Janet, but I'm sure you will have some photos to show in the future & so will I now.
