Another Grandbaby Added To The Collection

Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22434 – 848:

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.

    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.

    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.

    Congratulations Herb. I have a three year old granddaughter called Violet. She is an absolute delight 🙂

    1. Herb Avatar

      That’s really neat. If I get permission from her mom I’ll post a picture of her.

      1. colinmcqueen Avatar

        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 😊

        1. Herb Avatar

          I agree.

    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.

    1. Herb Avatar

      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.”
