"Congratulations" is the normal response

This video was taken a few months ago. We went to tell my grandmother that we were having another baby. My grandmother is very special to me. She is the only grandparent that Rob and I have still living therefore making her Bennett's only great grandparent. We loved living only 5 miles away from her for the first 10 months of Bennett's life. They developed a very special relationship and we miss being so close to our sweet Nana.

We put a shirt on Bennett that said, "I'm the big sister" and took her to see Nana. We were hoping that Nana would be thrilled about her newest great grandbaby. This is what we got.

HA!

Oh man that was so funny. I love it when sr. citizens lose the "filter" and just say what they think. LOL. But you know, a lot of people are very excited for you! Two babies is hard, but you're up for the challenge!

Love it! That is awesome that you got that on film!

Absolutely classic. So glad you caught that moment forever.
My favorite thing she said was, "what's the matter with ya'll?"
Rob, you can always call Mike and Kim for advice. Those girls are 15 months apart!

Things don't always work out the way we think they will, do they? Her reaction is priceless!

ROTFL!!! Atleast she is honest!!! Having them close is hard at first but then the blessing of having your sibling close in age... Raf and I are 18 months apart... I have a niece and a nephew who are 12.5 months apart...
