The latest scans of Holly are absolutely wonderful! You definitely get what you pay for regarding ultra sounds. I have two of the pictures printed out & they have the prime position in my bedroom…on my poster of David Essex! I’ve put a sprig of holly there too as I read it was a sign of good luck. I hope so. I hope my Grand-daughter has a wonderful life with many more ups than downs. I pray that I’m going to be around for quite a few years yet, I want to be part of her growing up years. I’m also praying that we form a really strong & loving bond, she is just the medicine I need, I now see a future for us all. One day I’ll tell her how I felt the day her mummy told me she was expecting her…
In the past few weeks our lives have been dramatically changed, for the better! Ever since Charlotte rang me to tell me I was going to be a Grandma…it has been all stations go!!! We have just over three months to get ready for a little girl I already love with all my heart & soul; how could I not, my baby is having a baby!
We got to see the NHS scan this week. In two weeks Holly has really filled out. You can see the facial features! To me she looks just like her Mummy & Auntie Paula did as a new-born. Charlotte sees Stephen’s chin & now she’s pointed it out to me, so can I.
It’s obvious to see that they are both over the moon about the baby…their enthusiasm is tactile. Stephen has plans for the nursery. He has left our house with the equipment to decorate it. The plan is neutral walls, & he will draw then paint a classic Winnie The Pooh, with script.
I have only just realised how much your child’s choice of partner matters. When they were just a couple I didn’t really consider it, after all she is old enough to stand up for herself & has always known her own mind…(I wonder where she gets that from?!) But now I want my daughter to be supported & I have every faith in Stephen. He may not legally be my son-in-law, but I think of him as one. Their relationship seems strong & their baby will be well cared for & loved, what child needs any more?
I do believe in miracles! I’m going to be a grandma!!! I’m writing this in pink as at present we think, after a scan, that it is a girl! So welcome to Holly Sophia Craig…& if you turn out to be Jacob Stephen Craig you will be just as welcome! As my mum used to refer to my daughter Charlotte, the baby’s mother, it will be Grandma’s little treasure!
