Just call me "Jemma"

Here is my grandbaby. My daughter is 11 weeks, and 2 days pregnant today, and I got to go to the ultrasound appt with her.
My youngest daughter is 23 (Haleigh), and she and her hubs (Ronnie) are expecting their first child and my first grandbaby.

I never thought I would be a grandmother at 43......I am too young to be an old blue haired, walking with a cane grandmother....LOL
Just kidding. My mother has been a grandmother for 24 years and she looks awesome, and I hope that when my grandbaby is 24 I look just as good.

Just wanted to announce my exciting news.
Been showing every weekend, I have gotten a ribbon in every class I have shown in.....Might now have always been a blue, but at least it is a ribbon and I am having a blast.
Hopefully life will slow down now that it is too hot to trail ride, and I can get some posting in.

Might help if I can get a new camera. Mine is shot....and I depend on others to take pictures and share with me. Anniversary not too far away, maybe I will throw some hints.....

Take care bloggy world and I will keep you updated on this little grape in my daughter's belly.
Oh by the way - I want "it" to call me "Jemma".....not sure why I like that but I do. We already have too many Memis', Memaws', Nannys, etc.... in our family so I tried to come up with something different.
Bear will be Papa Bear (Haleigh came up with that)

Happy "Baby" Trails

CONGRATS JEMMA!!! I love that nickname,too. What a a brilliant idea!
How exciting, but I agree about the age thing. I'm 43 this September.....and my youngest is SIX! lol!
My twinlings are only no grandbabies for me quite a long while, thank goodness. hehe!

I'm glad you're getting tons of opportunities to show and have fun.
It's always great to hear from you. I hope you'll keep us updated as that little grape grows bigger.

Ha Ha! Jemma is my mom's name!!! She has tried to get everyone in the family to name a girl after her, but so far no luck!!! It is not a very common name here, especilly with a J , but it is in Europe! Congrats on your grandchild, young grandparents just have more energy to spend on their grandkids which will equal MORE memories!

Jemma is an awesome alternative to other nicknames!! I think "Jemma" should work great since it's easy to say, like momma in a way. It's funny tho', kids can come up with a name for you all on their own original word for 'grandma' just happened to me-my grandson thought my name was "BONGA"! (I love it of course, since that's the name he gave me.)But no one needs a nickname for grandma immediately, so I would just like to put out to you that you can relax, just wait and it will happen on it's own no matter what you try to teach them, lol.
