Let me introduce my grandson. Yeshua Emmanuel Schlitt Manansala. He joined our family on August 30 by C section. Lisa is healing really fast and Yeshua is a delight! He was 5lbs 12 ozs. but starting to thrive on mommy's milk. So now you know why I haven't blogged in a few weeks.

Some aged wisdom I have gleaned in my new found role:

Becoming a grandmother is wonderful. One moment you're just a mother. The next you are all-wise and prehistoric. ~Pam Brown~

Grandchildren are God's way of compensating us for growing old. ~Mary H. Waldrip~

It's amazing how grandparents seem so young once you become one.

If your baby is "beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time," you're the grandma.
