My grandson's very first Xmas stands out to be one I will always remember. My eldest son returned to africa a few years after we all moved here. There he meet DIL and the rest is history. Got this phone call oneday Mom we pregnant just 3 weeks before My other son announced they pregnant too. Needless to say the post man knew me by my first name.
Cobi was born in South Africa early Feb, except for photo's I had never held or cuddled him.We paid for their airfares to OZ for a 3 week holiday so we could spend a Christmas together. They arrived tried but in good spirit at the airport, while I was just about jumping out of my skin to see my boy again after 4 years. meet my DIL for the first time and got to cuddle my grandson. Poor DIL she must have not known what to think of this batty old woman and grumpy old man.
Anyway after we got home and had a little visit, Son wanted to go for a little drive to show DIL the nearby beach. I got to babysit this very tired baby, who had fallen asleep in my arms. To their amazement something he never did at home. We had a lovely Christmas ... the boys very first Christmas ... I bought a little teddy each that we hung on the tree with their first Xmas on it and gave each mom one.My other grandson was born on my Birthday in Sydney. They are both living in Brisbane now and go to the same school but not the same class. Best of friends.
Season's Greetings to all
