    A while back I announced that we were expecting our first grand child.

    Well the time is getting nearer and we've been busy getting ready.

    We found out the other day that our daughter is having a girl and that they are gonna name her Kandice Michelle and you know what that means... she'll get hooked on the nickname of "Kandy"

    I think I'll just call her my little lolli pop:smile2:

    Thanks John,

    She's starting to feel alot of miscomforts and having a few difficulties but she only has a couple months to go if that long. The Doctor is starting to monitor her alot more now so I think everything will be okay.

    I know how excited you all are, the first grand baby is the best. lol And you might find your self taking back that answer you gave Johnnie. If Kandy is like all our grand daughters (all 7) lol, they think the sun rises and sets in their Papa. And thats what will keep you at home on the weekends. :wink:

    Congrats on the new grandbaby coming up. I hope all goes well. . You will have a lot of fun and sleep good at night after watching them all day. LOL. Grandpaws and little grandkids just seem to go together. Us old fisherman are a lot of fun for them grandkids.
    I got My 18 month old Grandson with me now. He is very cool. I enjoy him being at our house. We get to watch him a lot. every time he sees me, he comes runing to me open arms. I love that little guy. And today, he got a brand new 7 1/2lb, 21 inches long little brother. Looks just like him. LOL.
    We got the call early this afternoon and headed to hospital. All is
    going good. Mom is OK, baby is OK. My Son and his wife is on cloud 9. LOL
    2 grandsons and one Grand daughter. Life is good.:cool2:

    Being a Grandpa to 5, I take it upon myself to give you some pointers.

    1. You never change a diaper, that is strictly Grandma's job.
    2. Never microwave milk for 3 minutes in a bottle.
    3. Do not wear clean shirts while holding a new born, it makes them throw up. I just wear old t-shirts, seems to not affect them as much.
    4. If they have to be there over night, go fishing, you might as well, you wont get any sleep anyway.
    5. When they are older, go ahead and spoil them, they have to go back home.
    6. When they are at your house, go ahead give them sugary things, as much as they want. (Just make sure they arent going to be spending the night, if they are you might want to consider another night fishing trip).
    7. Little girls like to fish also.
    8. Teach them proper fishing at a early age. Teach them all other fish other than catfish is called they bait.
    9. Proper first birthday presents are rod, reels, hooks and weights, no matter what Grandma says.
    10. Enjoy them, and be around them as much as you can, they grow up to fast.

    Congrats Grandpa. You can soon spoil it and then send it home when it cries. Looking forward to the pics. You need to have you a sign made for your boat that reads. "Proud Grandpa"
