Back in September I asked people what they thought of becoming a grandparent at a younger age....I am 35.....

Well, my son and his girlfriend gave birth to a very precious little girl on May 17th......They named her Nivayah Charmaine....She weighed 7 lbs 13 oz and has head of dark hair.....

  • Wow. I don't mean to be offensive, but I couldn't comprehend being a grandmother at 35. I'm 35 now and pregnant.

    I never know what to say in situations like this. I'm glad the baby is healthy and all are ok.

  • I'm assuming it is pronounced the same way that "Nevaeh" is.  You know?  Heaven spelled backwards.  Look at them being clever and changing the spelling.  I'm glad that the baby is okay and healthy, but the name alone is indicative of why children shouldn't have babies.

  • Well the baby being healthy is good news.

    Did they really name their child after a skin care company (Nivea)? I suppose that's slightly better than naming it after a car (Bentley) like they previously wanted to do.

    A Nivayah Wright (male) fought in the Revolution.  I actually think the name is better suited for a girl!  It's pretty.

  • My mom was a grandmother at the age of 34.  My niece and I are only 3 months apart.  It's strange to think sometimes that we are having our first child at the age of 34...same age my mom became a grandmother.  Teen pregnancy and raising the child can be a real challenge for everyone involved.  The child will need the support from everyone in the family.  It's not ideal, but it can be done.

  • I am glad that the baby is healthy and I wish you and your family blessings and good wishes as you help this young couple to raise their little girl.
  • Being told I was going to become a grandmother was devastating at first. I felt like a failure as a parent. I mean,we had the talk MANY times,I tried to explain to him the hardships his father and I went thru being only 16 myself when I found out I was pregnant with him.  I went over all this with him over and over and over again. But with all that talk,people are going to go on the way the want to go on.

    As the pregnancy went further along,I began to come to terms with it all. I mean, either I can be supportive or I can turn my back.....They did need support and still need it. They shared every event with me and grandpa.

    The worrying endlessly about everything is still here with me and I worry that they will not make it.....But if it all falls apart on them, I will be there to give a hand.....


    Now, her name is not Heaven backwards....Her name is Nivayah  N short i sound vay ah..... Heaven spelled backward sounds different.

  • Congratulations! It is great that you and YH (I presume) are supporting your son and his girlfriend and their new angel.

    Yes, it is going to be hard on all involved but it can certainly be done. 

    This is not quite the catastrophe pps made it seem like. Shame on them.

    *Side note = this new trend of parents changing spellings of names (even though I am tempted to do it myself) is hard of the child. My married name is terrible and I *hate* spelling it everyday. This poor child. :/


    Uh-oh, did I do that?!

  • Thank you to all that replied! I do have some photos of her up on my blog now if you are intrested in seeing the little one.

    It has been a difficult road,but if we all stick with the two of them and let them know we are there to help,I think they will do okay.
