Tell us one of your favourite memories to date that you have with your granddaughter?

When I first held her! She was so tiny, so vulnerable and so perfect .  She was born in Paris and I only saw her when they all came back, my little granddaughter was just about 4 weeks old. I had seen pictures and videos of her but when I took her in my arms  I was overwhelmed with love .
