Is the child living with you and your fiance? Then that will be done in time, as you and the child bond and do the day to day things. Ensure you don't step on Grandma's toes but encouraging her to join in some or all of the special moments with your step daughter. Let grandma spoil her, but you and Daddy set the rules and punishments and rewards. Grandparents are a wonderful thing, keep her involved, it takes a village to raise a child. If she over steps her bounds then talk to her with your hubby. This is going to be hard for her, be genital. There is a generational gap that you will fill and if you really listen to her even now, you are the one she will talk to about everything. Good luck this is going to be a huge adjustment for everybody be patient.
