Exciting News and a new kit

I have news that I haven’t shared with you yet, and primarily because while my head knows this, there are issues keeping it from hitting my heart…Yet.

Wayne and I are grandparents!! 

One of Wayne’s twins let us know several weeks ago that he was notified that he was a father.  Ummmmm, ok.  It seems as though he was playing around with someone who was in a live in relationship and she got pregnant.  The baby was born May 5, 2010 and James was told of her existence right around his birthday at the end of July.  Wayne and I found out about it during dinner one night in the middle of August.  

This is the reason it isn’t quite hitting my heart yet…she isn’t quite real to us yet.  This little girl is almost 4 months old and we have never met her.  I have gotten a couple of pictures forwarded to me on my phone but that just doesn’t make her “real”.

So now we are all waiting for the baby’s mom to move down closer to James, and while they are not going to be romantically involved, they are going to raise this little girl together, and the rest of us are supposed to be able to do the same. 

I didn’t realize just how much I wanted to be a grandma until the opportunity arose…now I just want to hold her, cuddle her and be “that grandma”.

Since I have not been able to do that yet, I decided to design a digi-kit to celebrate her and capture her introduction to our family.
