Babies! Babies are the best! Four years ago, I became a grandmother. I could never have anticipated how much I love being "Grandma Janie." I was highly opposed to being called Grandma until I saw little Taylor Lily's face. I now wear the title with pride and I am so grateful to be a young grandma.
My son and daughter in-law are expecting in November and we are thrilled for this next opportunity to have another grandchild. I can't wait!
The sweetest part of being a grandparent is recapturing the feelings I had as a parent with my two little bundles of joy. The preciousness of holding the tiny hand and seeing the quivering chin and flailing arms. It is the closest I will ever get to those memories of my own babies being in my arms again. The thrill to me is bliss.
