Announcing the arrival of….
This is a back dated post - apologies for not posting earlier!
Dear Readers, I am officially a grandma, albeit a step grandma – haha. My step daughter K, gave birth to little James Thomas on Monday night (14 June) at 11.08 pm. Little JT is 3 weeks early. His original due date was supposed to be 4 July! He is actually a miracle baby as she has cystic ovaries and thought she would not be able to conceive naturally.
She is a dentist and just before she knew she was pregnant, she was not feeling well. So her patients asked her if she was pregnant and she laughed and said that it was not possible. But since a couple of her patients mentioned it, she decided to get a test kit to see if she was really pregnant and lo and behold, she was. But as she did not want to tempt fate, she did not tell anyone until she was in her third month. And as they say, the rest is history…..
Pat will be boring Grand – da, but I didn’t want to be called Nana or Grandma, so I have decided that he will call me Oma – which is the German term. It think it’s short and sweet and easy to pronounce.
For a Caucasian baby, don’t you think he has quite a full head of hair?
