Hello! Guess I need somebody to talk to! Our first grandchild was born on Monday. A little girl, 7 pds. 7 oz., perfect in every way. I spent as much time with her as I could but the hospital is an hour away from here, and I had to come home. My husband was out of town, and we have goats to feed and a dog and I have a job. I am missing her like crazy! When I look at her pictures I start to cry! I want to go back and visit but we had a snowstorm here, so I couldn't just go. DIL had to have a c-section and is going home from the hospital today. I don't want to intrude on them their first days home, but I don't know if I can wait until next weekend!!! She is being baptized next Sunday, and I want to go out the day before so I can spend more time with her, don't know if I can wait that long! Wow, I just never thought it would be this hard to be away from her. It makes it harder when the other grandma lives only blocks away from them and I know she's going to get to see the baby every day. Anybody else have this happen when you became a grandma??? Am I over the top here for being so lonely for her? She's not MY baby. I just love kids and babies so much. I was a stay at home mom to my three boys, I also watch kids after school everyday. I do volunteer babysitting too. On Monday I have to babysit maybe I'll get my baby fix or maybe it will make me miss her more!!! I need to be thankful that they aren't further away. I'm trying to concentrate on that now.
