This is how small is your baby right now.” His face will most likely reflect confusion at first, but then he`ll definitely show joy and enthusiasm.

At the dinner, tell your grandparents that you have something symbolic for them to offer as a gift that you think they might like. Even though they might look surprised at first, when they see what`s inside the gift box, they`ll certainly think it was a wonderful idea.
