I Am A.. Granny.

Another event that happened while I was gone from blogging was becoming a Grandma. I don't really like that word though (I'm way too young? to be a Granny.. yes, I'm looking at -you-, my love) so when she starts to understand words, I'm going to teach her to call me - Nana.

Our son's ex-girlfriend who is as much a beloved daughter in law to me as she could be, was date raped early last year. It broke our hearts that it happened but none moreso than Colton's. They remain the best of friends, still love one another and honestly, I expect them to end up together in the long term.

So, when she came to us saying she was pregnant, it took us less than a second to know the baby would be our grandchild and for Colt to decide he would raise her as his daughter.

With that, here is the precious one, Miss Ava Lynn. (Flips open my wallet so the pictures roll down to the floor.)

Congratulations! She's adorable! Love that last pic!
I totally understand how busy a grandchild can keep you. And also the name, I'm Grammy like the award. :)

Aww...too cute! Congrats "Granny"! ; )

I'm a grandma, of sorts. My man has 3 grands and they'll be calling me "Jodi". I don't mind the 'grand'...it's the 'ma' that bothers me. lol!

Congrats to you and your family. She's too cute!

Also, my mom claims she's too young to be called grandma as well. She settled on "mimi".
