A New Life
Life has been so busy for me lately, which accounts for my absence here at Persona Paper. Last Wednesday, the 28th of January, my newest Granddaughter arrived. She arrived on her due date at a whopping 9 lbs. 1 oz. with a head full of dark hair. She will undoubtedly turn blonde just as her brothers and sister did.
So far she's a good sleeper and her brothers and sister adore her, with one exception. My 2-year-old Grandson pretty much ignores her. it took a few days, but at least now he doesn't get upset if his Dad or I hold her, which was a big turning point.
My son-in-law has taken a week off work to be with his family. He is definitely a Super Dad. My 2-year-old Grandson has been a constant 'Daddy's Boy", which has allowed me to spend some time bonding with my newest little Granddaughter.
So, life is extremely good at this time and I am one lucky Grandma.

My heartiest congratulations to you and your family. She is so pretty and I am sure your grandson will soon love her as much as the the others do. The youngest babies usually have everyone wrapped around their little fingers.1

Thank you. She is a little sweetie.

Thank you! I imagine that when she begins smiling and responding to us that my youngest Grandson will adore her. He actually does like babies.

Thank you. Yes, we are fortunate that everyone is happy and healthy.

New baby = LOTS of work. The parents are lucky to have help from you. Hope you are enjoying the new arrival.1

With my son-in-law home for a couple of more days I really haven't had to do much. But, he goes back to work on Wednesday so that's when my work will really begin. So far I've had the pleasure of holding my little Granddaughter when she's been fed and is happy. I haven't even changed a diaper yet!

So happy to learn the newest family member arrived healthy and already well-loved. Everyone has to figure out his or her place in the new family dynamics, lol. Two-year-olds still view the world through "It's all about me" eyes, so I can well imagine your grandson's dilemma. I hope everyone soon finds a comfort level and that this beautiful infant remains healthy and happy. Congratulations to all. : )1

Thank you! All continues to go well. My 2-year-old Grandson seems to be a bit more accepting of her presence each day, although still basically ignoring her.1

Thank you very much!
SLGarcia wrote on February 3, 2015, 2:38 PM
Thank you! I know he'll come around - when she begins to interact a bit. At least he's no longer upset if his Dad or I hold her.

Thanks very much! Being a Grandma is the best - as you well know.

Thank you! I had already forgotten how much I enjoy holding little newborns. I know how much you must be looking forward to the arrival of yours.1

Thank you Freya! Time flies by and she is now 4 weeks old. My grandson continues to tolerate her nicely. I know they'll become buddies.
