Ohhhh Xuan - soo precious! Who does she look like? Does the Chinese New Year have any significance for the Vietnamese? Year of the dragon ....... Innovative, brave, & passionate - not bad!

Wishing the whole family well! I can't remember if this is your first. Should I be jealous now? Lolol

Thank you all.

Shella is such a lovely baby. And she sure did bring us all the joy of becoming grandparents for the first time :))

Her Mom&Dad are so crazy with her, you bet.

Here's a photo of Mom & child

Al, Shelle looks much like her Mom who looks very much like me...hence???

You don't have to feel jealous since we haven't got a grandson yet ...LOL!

Congratulations, Grandma Xuan! :-)

Shelle is simply gorgeous, as is her mother... and they look so happy! Yes, I'd say good genes run in your family! You all must be so thrilled with this new addition to the family!

I'm so sorry I didn't see this thread earlier... I haven't been around too much...

This is wonderful news! Thank you for sharing your family with us! Just think... two more, and you will have caught up to me! ;-)

The two eldest of my own grandchildren are in school already! Gosh, time really flies! Treasure every moment... because they pass so quickly... it seems like only yesterday my own children were young, playing the games children play, wishing they were older and bigger... ah, the memories!

All the best, Xuan... from my family to yours! :-)

Where was I when you posted this? I am seeing it for the first time!

Congrats our dear friend and tell your Daughter the same. Oh, that baby is sooooooo cute, sort of take after your looks, right?

What a wonderful experience to share with us and what an honor. You are dear to us here and Mom wished to extend a hug to you and the gang here.
That baby is so much cuter than any flower we can post here.
Enjoy being a Grandma. Just don't let it get to your head and make you feel old.lol

Much love
