    Babies are a great addition to any family.


    Yes, what did the parents name her?

  15. Mark Knowles profile image59
    Mark Knowlesposted 15 years ago

    Well, as we have no name as yet, I suggest we give her a  name by popular opinion.? How cool will that be when she grows up?

    I was named by a bunch of people who wrote at hubpages back in the early 2000s.

    How about it Paraglider- ?

    I am sure the parents will understand.

    She's to be called Jessica Louise, so no need for a straw poll!

    Welcome to the world, Jessica Louise!  I'm sure you are a pretty little girl.

    Good luck to the mom, and hope she has lots of help for a few weeks!  Thanks for the cigar, Dad.

    Have fun grandparents.  As for me, we don't send our grandchildren home, our home is their home.

    Congratulations.  I'm Betty Jo

    After all the years of what we parents go through in having own children --  the work, the discipline, the laughter, the joy, the tears, the frustration, the teaching, the rebellion, the prayers, the relief...   which, of course,  is how we actually 'learn' to be grandparents.

    But to 'become' a Grandparent, is the Jewel in the Crown for our parenthood.

    So, after all the challenges we have been through with our own children...  HOORAY 

    for PAYOFF DAY!

    This is when life, really begins.  I have six jewels in my crown now, and a seventh to arrive in May!

    Oh, you are going to have so much JOY in this posterity!

    This IS life at it's best...
