First Grandchild.

Yesterday the 5th of October was an exciting and very special day for me ( us ). Our first Grandson was born.  ( 5/ 10 / 15 )  No name yet. We are so proud of our young ones !
 He was almost exactly the same birth weight as his Daddy, all those years ago. He has lots and lots of dark hair and looks just perfect. ( we have seen 4 photos so far )
 I have just finished a second blanket for his cot, using up all the wool scraps from the other baby knitting I have done.
I am not sure when our first visit will be to meet him in person, as I think the little new family needs some time together and to  rest.
 I must be sure I have no lingering germs from my recent cold and cough. It is about 98% gone.
I still haven't decided what I wish to be called. ( Grandma is already taken, so I am trying out the sound of various other options.)

 A little new person to love and spoil.

Great news! Congratulations to you all. He will decide on a name for you in due course. I have ended up as Annie because Granddaughter can't say Granny, and I thought I was going to be Grandma anyway!
