Blogtober 2017 – Day 2 – Babies

Day 2 of Blogtober is all about babies, this is a very happy subject in our household at the moment as our first grandchild is due in early December, as regular readers will know.

It came as a bit of a surprise, but once we had got over the shock, we have been getting excited, even C who is not a baby person has come around to the idea of becoming an Aunt.

In August we had the baby shower, you can read about it here, it was such a lovely day and very special celebrating.  I took a few presents from C for the baby (we are still buying ours)

This is a few of the bits that she chose for her niece.

We could not ask for a lovelier Mum for our Granddaughter, she is lovely and keeps me up to date on everything, even when she is having a bad day.

I have seen pictures of the babies room, everything she has brought her, it is so lovely that she shares everything.

I can not wait for christmas this year, and buying baby clothes and toys, it has been such a long time since I have last brought baby items. Of course we have to do the grandparents thing and will be buying noisy toys, obviously when she is a bit older.

    Congratulations! It is such a wonderful thing having grandchildren. I couldn’t believe the love that I felt for this tiny human being. I am sure there are hormones that make us love them to bits so we offer to baby sit! #blogtober17

      I can not wait, I have heard the love you feel for a grandchild is so strong, I can not wait to hold her and babysit, although my husband wants to play grumpy Grandad and says we are not babysitting, but he is a softy and will love it x

    Great to know that she is so lovely and full of love. Indeed this moment would be special for the entire family and all would have been up on heels to get their best for the little one coming soon. Have a great time and love to the mum.

      It is, I keep looking every time I go into a shop, but have not brought anymore clothes as she has so many, will start again when she is a few months old as we all know babies grow quickly x

    One thing about babies – they can wear more cuter outfit than adults! I like that pink overall 🙂
    Congratulations for having a little angel 🙂

      I know, I keep looking at little outfits for her, but have refused to buy anything until she is a few months old as she has so many clothes and she is not even here yet x
