Talking I'm a Grandpa!!!

Well I'm a Grandpa!! as of saturday! This is my first grand baby. I'm only 38 but that's ok with me. We had our daughter in high school. She did things the old fashioned way graduated got married. Me and my wife are married but not till a few years after high school. It was a scary weekend my daughter went at 35 weeks. and had to have a emergency c section. The baby and my daughter are doing good. The baby is doing better than my daughter. Lots of prayers are needed. I am the proudest grand pop pop in the world!! Her name is Emma Noel Teders. 5lb and 1 oz and 19 inches long.

Congratulations! Nothing like holding that first grandchild in your arms. BTW, my friend's daughter has you beaten age wise, she was 29 when she became a grandma.

Re: I'm a Grandpa!!!

Congratulations! Hoping for a speedy recovery for your daughter. I had to wait until 61 for my first Grandson. I'm going to watch him "graduate" from Kindergarten tomorrow morning.

Re: I'm a Grandpa!!!

Congrats Nathan! Baby looks healthy! Hoping for quick recovery for your daughter.

Everyone's life path is different. I was 37 when I had my first son, so there's a whole extra generation worth of difference!

I have no regrets (definitely hadn't met anyone I was compatible with for marriage prior to that point), but having young parents and grandparents is so helpful for kids!
