Congratulations sj. My little man is one day older than yours!

Does he have a name yet? I hope you enjoy your first cuddle. I'm hoping for one later in the week

We had our first cuddles today, omg, he is so so tiny, obsolutely shattered after an emotional weekend.

Early night for us I think

thanks everyone and congratulations coastwalker, no name as yet by the way.

Aaaaaaaagh, new baby to love!
I'm expecting my 6th grandchild and feel guilty that the novelty has worn off.I don't feel thrilled any more at the yearly announcements and it's so hard to find presents when they've all got everything to pass down to each new baby.

hello sj Congratulations on your new arrival; I'm sure the nerves will wear off and you'll be handling him confidently very soon.

Hi sj congratulations on the birth of the little one, I too became a first time Gran on the 24th of May and there are also others on here that are first timers, maybe we should start a first time gran support group!! grin)

Lot's of love and cuddles to you both grin)

Hi Angelwispa,

Why not, start a new thread for first time grans. I have to say i have been very nervous.

Everything is going great, spend today looking after DD and baby, made sure mum got plenty of rest whilst I looked after the baby for a few hours, oh my were those hours special. I found myself constantly checking he was breathing lol.,

Im in love, but i would be Im a grandma!

thanks for all the lovely words
