The News We’ve Waited To Hear

We are SO excited here at our house.  Over-the-moon thrilled.  Our whole family is buzzing about the news.  The smiles on our faces won’t go away! 

A few weeks ago I shared here that we are going to have another grandbaby in August.  Our son and daughter-in-law are expecting baby number four.  They have three of the most wonderful boys and we’ve waited to hear what God has chosen for them – and for us – this time.  Yesterday we found out that this sweet baby is
A GIRL!!!!!!
This is the news we all hoped to hear!  We wanted a healthy baby, for sure. That's what we prayed for.  She and her mommy are healthy and doing great.  Baby - GirlI’ve got to get busy – time's a wasting!  There are things I want to make for her.  And things I need to do.  Time to get my knitting needles and crochet hooks out again.  Time for my sewing machine to go into high gear.  There are things I want to do with her when she's grown a bit.  Little china teacups will need to be taken down from the cupboard and dusted off, ready for little fingers to hold so we can have tea.  There will be books to read and songs to sing.  Ruffly, pink, happy thoughts just keep running around through my mind today!  Pink MonkeyEight grandchildren!  Is it true?  Can this be real?  Yes, it’s true!  Our daughter has three girls and a boy – now our son will have three boys and a girl. 

Eight hearts to hold in ours.  To love.  And treasure.
Eight special smiles.  And giggles.  And laughter.
Eight voices to tell tales.  And share hopes and dreams.  

We are so blessed.  More than we ever believed possible.

On Monday we were supposed to find out what the babies are (they are identical) but neither one of them would show us! They are already stubborn! Maybe next time.
