My DH's grandma

I am a newbie here. My name is Susan and my DH's grandma died about 2 weeks ago. It was the last of his to die and it was hard for me to see him like that. He was pretty close to her, as was I. She took me as her granddaughter after my Nana died in 1992(I have been with my DH for a long time). I have been having trouble moving on-I still cry now and then and feel guilty for not being so upset when I lost my grandma. I was 17 but I guess things have changed. I am hoping our next will be a girl-we want to name her Emma(his was Emily) Rose (my Nana's name). When we picked out some of her jewelry, I took a silver "E" necklace, hoping to pass it on some day.

I better go-DS is not napping like he should.

Susan, I am so sorry. It's always hard to loose someone you love. Especially someone that close to you. I love the idea of you wanting to name your next dd after the grandmothers. I lost my grandpa 7 months ago and it still hurts sometimes but it does get easier and I have found that it helps to talk about it. ((hugs)) If you need to talk feel free to pm me.

Thank you! Today is our anniversary and I framed a picture of him with his grandma as a gift. Do you think that's creepy or weird? It was taken this last Christmas and is one of a few of them together.

I think it is a great idea. He should love it. Right now I am working on a scrapbook that is centered around my grandpa and I am going to give it to my grandma for Mothers day.

How neat!! Your kids are so cute-Lane is the name of my youngest nephew. He is about 4 weeks younger than Avery, my DS.

Thanks! Lane is actually his middle name, but that's what we call him. His first name is Damien.
I see that you just had an anniversary. Congrats!

Thank you-we have been married 6 years. Hoping we get a late anniversary gift with a BFP! We will celebrate Friday, because my DH worked last weekend and Saturday is our nephew, Payton's, 10th birthday. I can't believe he is already double digits!!

They grow up so fast, I say the same thing about my neice and nephew. 14 and 10. It scares me when I think of what I was like at 14, lol.

I was going to put some words of "wisdom" down but after reading all of the posts, it seems that all is well now. Congratulations on the anniversary!
