Nice photo, Texan. Ima not gonna say how cute she is, 'cause that shits me when people do that gooey gooey stuff about babies.

:beer
Sorry. This is my first grandchild and she is absolutely perfect. I feel for her very much like I felt when I held her dad for the first time 25 years ago.

Thanks Seth.

I'd like to take this moment to declare my granddaughter, Haylen, an honorary Texan. Her mother was a military brat and grew up all over the world. Haylen's father was born on a military base 8 miles from the Texas border to 2 Texan parents and was subsequently raised in Texas and has Texas as his home of record for military purposes. I wish I had driven to Texas to get a cup of Texas soil to put under the birthing bed when my son was born so that I could say he was born on Texas soil.

I totally understand. I have 3 grandchildren, and to me, they are the most beautiful little blessings in the whole wide world.

I am sure Texan's Grand Daughter will grow into a beautiful and loving woman...but don't give me the 'how cute' etc expected mouthings about new born's appearance. I have ten grand kids, and not one of them was 'cute' or 'beautiful,' at birth.

Wrinkly, pink, noisy shit factories they were, however.

So there.........

I haven’t changed a single diaper and when she cries, I give her to someone else. She is perfect and beautiful.

Thing is....I know where their buttons are. Herding these cats is very easy.

You know Aussie has to make his natural obnoxiousness seem elective.

Some sad news, my sister passed on boxing day. She fell acutely ill on Christmas eve and our small family were by the her side until she went.
It's the first time someone very close to me has died and it really brings on the full range of emotions, some you expect and other that you just can't imagine you'd feel.

I can see other posts that a group member has beautiful little new baby in their life, isn't the ebb and flow and cycles of life remarkable?

Jesus Tally! I'm so very sorry. I remember you saying you were helping your sister, i hoped it might not have been under such dire circumstances.

That holiday you both had is an even more treasured memory now. I'm glad you shared that.

You said she's a single mum? Not young kids i hope?

Wow, sorry to hear that, Tally. I have lost a father and that was pretty bad, but losing a sibling must be much worse.

Oh my goodness!!
I have been busy elsewhere with not so pleasant stuff, and so lovely to see you have become a grandpa for the first time! Big hearty congrats to you and Mrs. Texan.

Such lovely news xx

One day, I would love to have news like this also :smitten

Condolences to you Tally, I feel the ebb and flow of grief of late also, just put mum to rest a week ago, and I still can't believe she is gone, I have so many things I still wanted to discuss and ask.

I hope your sister didn't suffer too much, looks like it was quick, with some time to say goodbye I hope, even though no one is ever ready to do so. Never actually.

Grief is like a wave, sometimes I think I am okay, then it hits me anywhere, even when I was out at a restaurant, in the middle of my meal, it hit me....just can't help it.
You are allowed to grieve in any way you wish to express, and as long as you wish to...don't ever let anyone tell you "Haven't you gotten over it yet?" becuase that is total BS

I did a 6 week course on grief back in the early 1990's when dad suddenly died.
It made me understand the different types of grieving, even with separations, and one week, we did death and children, and how they perceive death.
We have to be totally honest with children, telling their loved ones have gone to heavan is not enough......one story was, a 3 year old boy would hear his parents say, they are going to see their mum (his grandma).
And so, one day, the little boy asked, if he could go and see grandma too.
So they took him along, to the cemetary.
He put his hands in his pockets, and looked around and said "So this is what heavan looks like?"

What should have been said, grandma died, was buried, then went to heavan.
Tally, I hope you will be okay, if you ever wish to talk, I am here for you anytime xx

Thanks all for the kind words.

It was fast, heart failure after a severe asthma attack but there was an underlying issue of an untreated over-active thyroid which weakened her heart.
She has just one son, in uni now and self sufficient thank goodness. He's doing well and blessed he has a great group of supportive friends in place of a large family.

Looks like I'll be staying down in Melbourne for a bit. I think I'll play it by ear for him.
