Grandpa Wumpy!

It's official, the Willster is a Grandpa (or Grandma depending on my mood)!

7 Pounds 7 ounces, with eyes that will melt you! She is an angel and her grandpa is SO in love with her ;D

Girl, this is so funny -- just earlier today I was thinking "Where's La Wumpette these days -- I bet he just became a grandfather and that's why he's not around"... and alas I was correct.

I'm so happy for you! Congrats.

Yes, we have a wittle waby wumpy :) and it looks like she is fixing to punch me because I wouldnt put her down. Momma kept saying "Can I hold her now" lol.

I decided I REALLY like Grandbabies because it's all fun and no work, whenever she started crying or started "smelling" I would just hand her over to momma. It's really a sweet gig I got.

That's what I'm looking forward to myself. I just hope that when my daughter decides to start having children, that she's living on the Rock again. She's home for a few days this month, but then has to return to Lowestoft in England to begin her teaching career. I miss her - she was just in Norwich for a year to get her teaching degree. I'll be bummed if she starts a family so far away.


She's so tiny! I can hardly remember when mine was that small (24 years ago!!!) - she was nearly the same size at birth, 7lbs, 11oz. The dress and tiny little cardigan are just adorable - and so is she.
