|Taking a selfie with DeeDee|
Taking a selfie is difficult with a squirmy baby. Especially for a DeeDee that rarely takes selfies.
So people who know that I'm a grandmother want to know why I've decided to be called DeeDee by the next generation. The crazy kids in my family have this idea that, when one becomes a great- anything, they need to add "old" in front of the grandparent name. I'm not having that.
No. I do not want to be Old Grandmay. So, I've decided on DeeDee. That was my name when I was a baby.
My older sister couldn't say "baby." She said "deedee" instead and the name stuck. My parents called me Dee until their deaths. There are times, when I miss momma and daddy, that I miss being called Dee. So this may help solve that problem, also.
Back to this cutie. Amelia Renee was born last Tuesday weighing 8 lbs. 6 ozs. and 21 inches long. Not small.
She just looks very tiny when she's in my arms. And see those eyes? She loves to look at whomever is holding her. I do believe she already has that eye squint down. Imagine what she'll do with those eyes will do when she's six!
We loved having her here for a little while. She and I took a little nap, her mommy and Aunt Jolie stayed for supper, and Dusti got lots of homework done. Having an adult granddaughter with a baby is unbelievable. I am anxious to have some time to enjoy both mommy and baby.
