Well, finally, my first grandchild is here. It’s a boy and he’s absolutely gorgeous! I’ve just been lucky enough to spend 12 days with him and his parents and it was heaven. It was so hard to leave and say goodbye, I actually couldn’t say goodbye, the tears welled up and that was that. They live in another state and I have no idea when I’ll be able to visit next. Which saddens me. But seeing him and the fantastic father my son is has gladdened my heart, he really is such a natural dad, just beautiful to see. I’ll just have to save hard and get back there asap!
