Hello all. I need your help. Well, actually my sister does. She is 8 months pregnant with their son and is going to do a photo book for the grandparents. She did one when their daughter was born and now wants to do one for their boy. Anyway, she started my niece's book off with a short little saying...two to three sentences. She wants something different for their son. Do you have anything creative to say that goes along the lines of a grandchild/grandson or grandparent?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Amy, I posted a link to your request on the Granny Thread. You will probably get lots of creative suggestions from the Grannies!

Amy, you might want to copy and paste your post above, or just re-write it, on the Granny Thread. That thread overwrites this one in the right hand forum listing, so this one will probably be overlooked.
Here is a link to the Granny Thread:
