It is our hope and prayer that we can help foster a loving relationship between our child and their grandparents. As they get older, we look forward to when they can call them on a regular basis and go visit for a few days. We will cherish the influence that our parents will have our on child and we will sure be leaning on our parents for advice, words of wisdom and support when it comes to raising our little one. We are entering a whole new world! I read something the other day that said, "Once you have your own kids, you may suddenly realize that your parents had more wisdom than you may have previously thought." Haha! There will be things and instances we will want to handle on our own or the way we feel is best, but we will certainly enlist their help as we need it. They have been through the "raising children" chapter of life and have trial and error on their side as well as many experiences and lots of perspective.
We are very thankful for you all and can't wait to share our bundle of joy with you. Happy Grandparents Day!
Now let's meet Baby Ussery's grandparents...
This is my Mom and Armando who will be lovingly called "Mamaw and Grandpa".
These are John's parents who will be lovingly called "Grandad and Grandma". One thing we have planned for the nursery is to make a photo collage of our immediate family so we can point out family members and say their names so as they get older they can make a name/face association and even though they won't always be able to see them in person, they will be able to see them in pictures in between times together. It will be a great way for them to become familar with and recognize their family members.
Until we meet again...
