Playground Chatter: Meeting Grandma & Grandpa
Introducing the little one to grandparents for the first time is a very special experience for many new moms and dads. Watching your baby develop a bond with your own parents can be wonderful and fascinating. We recently asked our fans about the first time their children met their grandparents and enjoyed hearing what they had to say.
Kristy said, “Well my daughters met theirs at minutes old….The first was a preemie in the nicu when they met and it was priceless! My dad’s finger was bigger than her leg! Best priceless picture! The other was in my hospital room when the grandparents brought the big sister in! Priceless first kisses to baby sissy at 11 months old =)”
Kelsey shared, “My parents were in the delivery room with me when I had my daughter(their first grandchild). She was born on my dads birthday too. Now I’m having my second daughter & due around my moms birthday ”
Valerie recalled, “My son was very sick when he was born. He had Transposition of the gReat ateries. He had open heart surgery @ 6 days old. No one was allowed to hold him till he was 8 days old. We almost lost him. I will never forget my parents holding this sick precious baby that they thought they may have to bury. It was a very special moment I will never forget.”
Amanda said, “We live 6 1/2 hours away from my parents and we dont have a car so my son didn’t get to meet my parents until he was about 16 months. But he LOVED my mom, he would just follow her and cling to her all day, and my niece (who lives with my mom) was SO jealous. Lol it was so cute.”
Shasia shared, “Right before my grandpa passed he smile and at my few days old little one and was like that is my baby my granddaughter. And she put up a smile on her face as she sleep and I love that moment.. he passed away a few month after that. I love you grandpa…always”
Kassey remembered, “My mom came to visit my daughter when she was only 4 days old! Stayed a week and helped me more than anyone! My dad hasnt been able to come yet, broke his foot “
Dana said, “After I gave birth and had my hour of kangaroo care they took my son and me to the room. Just as my mom went to pick him up a nurse started wheeling him from the room to clean him up. She said stop I get him for a minute first.”
Jessica told us, “My mom was with when he came into the world. My dad couldn’t be there for about a week cus of snow. When he was about 3 weeks old he met my dads parents. He was 1 day old when he met my moms parents. He’s very blessed to have 4 grandparents and 4 great grandparents. He is a big fan of my mom- we stop at her house and he searches every room for her if she isn’t in the living room.”
Sara shared, “My father passed away on the 1st of august and was very sick for a long time… So the first meeting was in the hospital when she was 5 days old. Granpoo died when my baby was 7 months old so she won’t remember him, but I’ll share all the stories and the love rest in peace daddy!”
