Here’s the haps:
Hi Gang! Well, we knew there was another grandbaby on the way but wasn’t due for five more weeks yet. Everything went well and we have a new granddaughter, Violet Stephanie Berlyn, 5 pounds, 15 ounces, 20 inches long. Baby sister to the toddler we were sitting with back in May. We have the two older siblings, the toddler and their puppy staying with us for a few days. Visiting you guys will be sporadic at best while I’m having fun with the whole bunch including our own dog, Hey Boy, a royal standard poodle.
The joys of grandparenting
It is. And an adventure.
Congratulations, Herb! One of mine was 9 weeks early; she’ll do fine!
I understand that. Our first grandbaby was born at 26 weeks and weighed 1 lb 12 oz. She’s 16 now.
Congratulations!!!! 🎊 🍼 😀 Precious new grandchild, precious times to treasure….ain’t life grand!
It is grand. And grnadparenting is a grand adventure.
Indeed it is!
Congratulations Herb. Even though you definitely probably had little to do with her arrival. Marvellous.
lol. I had little to do with her arrival but now that she’s arrived…
Congratulations to you and the parents!
Congratulations Grandpa Herb. Looks like we are destined to be only fur grandparents to our children’s pets. Hope all is well with you. Allan
All is well, thank you.
Congratulations, Herb! Let the spoiling begin! 😊❤
Yes ma’am. 😉
Laugh It’s something to do do on a lonely day
This is happy news.
I like happy news.
All my best,
That’s wonderful news! Congratulations to the whole family. Violet is a good size which is the best news of all. I have only known one Violet and she was lovely.
This one seems to be pretty sweet.
Takes after grandpa then.😊
Roses are here, Violet is too;
Sugar is sweet, Congrats to you.
Congratulations Herb. I have a three year old granddaughter called Violet. She is an absolute delight 🙂
That’s really neat. If I get permission from her mom I’ll post a picture of her.
I’d love to see her. My youngest is now four months old, but she was born only yesterday it seems. Time passes so quickly. Enjoy 😊
Congratulations. What a happy occasions. Such joy in a big family. I love the big party of the extended family when I was young, but I haven’t had that for quite a while. LOL. Everybody has to give comments on the look of the baby. That’s really wonderful.
Thank you. You’re right about everybody making a comment on the baby’s looks. Over the years I’ve learned to NOT say, “Yup. Looks like a baby.”
What a good granddad! No wonder you look so young.
Hahahaha! Thank you.
Congratulations grandpa, again 😀
You are welcome
A hearty congratulations. A new life is always such a good thing to celebrate!
It’s a beautiful thing.
