Naturally we didn’t throw him, that’d be a bad idea. 😀
Niklas is my first ever grandchild, and my daughter didn’t even know she was pregnant (or didn’t want to know). Tuesday morning we went to see a doctor to find out why she’d gained so much weight, and 6 1/2 hours later, my daughter was slender as a young birch and our grandson Niklas greeted us with his screams.
We’re absolutely delighted, turning like mad to get everything we’ll need before the two leave the hospital, and slowly adjusting to the idea of grandparenthood. Of course that does add an additional challenge to my goal of 52 short stories incl. translations, but I won’t give up so easily. We’ll see how it goes. For now, I’ll enjoy having a baby in the house once again.

It was a real surprise, but a wonderful one. He’ll show you the world again.
Thank you. Yes, he’s a marvel and so, so sweet. We’re discovering new angles to things we’ve know forever already.
Ooh! Congrats! 🙂
I am so happy for you! Kind of an attention-getter, with only a few hours warning, but still! A baby. As Martha would say, “It’s a good thing.”
Don’t stop writing. Don’t wait your turn. It never comes.
Thank you so much, and I’ll never, ever stop writing. On the contrary. Since I’m NOT the mother, I’ll enjoy being a grandmother. 😀
Enjoy every moment with Niklas because they grow up too fast. 🙂
Don’t I just know that … just yesterday, my daughter was a baby herself. Now she is a mother. Sigh. Luckily I’m not feeling old but invigorated. 😀
Wow! It sounds like something out of a tv show, haha. Awesome. Congratulations with the beautful winter babe 🙂
We are very happy!
What a wonderful blessing! Congratulations!
Thank you. I’ll be picking the two children up today after lunch, and then the fun really starts.
LOL, Congrat’s Cat! What a cutie!
He’ll be a heartbreaker when he’s older. 😀
Congratulations, Cat! That’s the most adorable, chubby little curve ball I’ve ever seen in my life.
Since I’ve never seen a curve ball (but always wanted to use the word), I can’t disagree. 😀
He is most adorable.
