Hello Grandma's! I'm not sure how I missed this thread! I think it is sooooooo sweet! I love my MIL and she is a very special grandmother to my children (who are her only g-kids since my DH is her only child).

May I ask a question? Are birthstone jewelry with your grandchildren's birthstones corny? Would you wear one? I have been thinking of getting one for my MIL, but I know I wouldn't wear a birthstone necklace. It is not my style, but my MIL is a bit more emotional about that type of stuff. thoughts?

SB IMO that is not corny at all if she's emotional and sentimental it would mean the world to her. I don't know what type of necklace you're thinking of but may I make a suggestion? If there is place like behind the stone to have each child's name engraved that would make it extra special.

I would totally wear a birthstone necklace but I think a bracelet with stones, something similar to pandora but not pandora? Would be way cooler. I have four kids so potential for lots of grandchildren. A birthstone bracelet would be more practical. I will see if I can find a picture of one.

We had a cute little bump today for Mother's Day. Kate is upset that she has only gained one pound. Her mom and I said to be happy because by the end she will be glad she didn't balloon up. She just can't wait to look pregnant!

The awaited phone call came in, the ultrasound is scheduled for June 13 which happens to be my dh's birthday (her father), so it'll be a nice birthday present for granddad.She also said "don't expect a phone call after the ultrasound you'll be opening a package instead" lol

Today I got to babysit the new grandbaby. My DIL had to take the 3 yr old grandson to the dentist. Saturday they were up at her parents, and R was standing on a stool to brush his teeth. The stool tipped, and down he goes, knocking his teeth into the sink. One of his front teeth chipped in half, and the other front tooth is cracked under the gum. So, the dentist recommended an oral surgeon. Tomorrow is a consultation with OS and possibly pulling his teeth. Poor little guy.

So it's a .......baby! Legs crossed and they couldn't even get close to viewing. So disappointed! Baby's heartbeat was also too slow tonight so they want to call in a specialist for a look. Don't even google causes, it's depressing and it could have been just a fluke. So, four more weeks and they will try again :(

So we get a second chance tomorrow morning. They are going to Loyola to get a better ultrasound and check the heart with a neonatologist. Hoping they get good news and a peek at the gender!

Aprilbaby, hope all goes well today.

Clueless, Isn't your gender reveal soon?

Today is my DS and DIL 10th anniversary. :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: It's hard to believe it's been that long.

I have to share a cute story. Monday I went to lunch with my DS and he told me a story about my 3 year old grandson. He took R to Home Depot looking for materials for a project. As they walked down the power tool aisle, R's eyes got huge as he looked around in awe. While looking at all the tools he said "Daddy.....it's BEAUTIFUL" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: DS was so proud.

Patiently (not) waiting for my phone to ring. At this point all I care is that baby O is healthy!


Siv: awesome story! I could just picture in my mind his eyes getting BIG!

I think Clueless has gender reveal Sat or Sun.

Please pray its nothing major.

congrats on it being a girl grandma! Like I said before ongoing prayers that it's a strong and healthy baby. A few friends have had it and everything turned out for the best, one said it was her caffeine consumption that was causing it once she stopped it everything went to normal. xo
