New Baby Coming Soon

I am sooo very happy to announce that our family will be welcoming a new addition around August 15, 2011!!! This will be our second Grandchild, our first, Jonah, lives in Washinton state with our oldest son and daughter-in-law. We are so sad as we rarely get to see him (thank heavens for the internet and facebook so we can at least see pics and video his parents post).
Our daughter Miranda (our youngest) and son-in-law Brian, announced at Christmas that they are expecting their first. I was not allowed to post about it until now as they wanted to be able to tell his mother in person, and yesterday was the first they were able to do so.

As of right now (Lord willing that we won't have to move), we live close to them, so I am of course hoping to be able to do lots and lots of babysitting!!!

The way they announced it, was at Christmas, we were all given what we thought was a Christmas card in an envelope, but inside was a poem, and here is what ours said...

I do not have a face to see,
Or put inside a frame.
I do not have soft cheeks to kiss,
I don't yet have a name. (It was at this point it hit me)
You can't yet hold my tiny hands, 'nor whisper in my ear.
It's still to soon to sing a song, or cuddle me so near.
But all will change come fall time,
That's when they say I'm due.
I'll be your second grandchild;I can't wait till I meet you.
All I ask between now and then is your patience while I grow.
I promise I'll be worth the wait, because of all the love we'll know.
So have a Merry Christmas
A wish to you from me.
I cannot wait to be a part
Of this great family!

Can you imagine the tears of joy!

My daughter has always been baby/kid crazy, she started babysitting after taking a class at the local hospital at the age of eleven. She and our new son have been married a little over a year now and I'm surprised she was able to wait as long as she has.

I have already been looking at nursery decor, baby knit and crochet patterns, and searching for the best "baby" websites on the net, so if you find any, please let me know.

Enough for now, I'm sure I'll be posting more about this in the future and I just may have to start a blog for the new addition, how fun would it be to keep track of everyone's thoughts and joy, pics, information and give to him/her in a book when he/she is old enough to appreciate it!

I was asked what I'd like to be called and as I said with Jonah, they can call me anything they want....How does Granny M sound?
