I'm finally able to share some wonderful and happy news. We're expecting a grandbaby! It's our first! We are so very happy and excited. A baby!
The day I found out, I went to the florist and bought myself a pretty little bouquet of white roses and lavender flowers. My fav! I just could not let that day go by without having something in my life to reflect on whenever I looked at it. My husband was gone at work for the week, and I was home alone with no one to share the happy news, except my Dad. We were sworn to secrecy until her 3rd month. So, we shall be expecting a new addition to the family towards the end of September. No set due date, at least not right now.
Here's a pic of my flowers... slightly edited. :)
My son and daughter-in-law told us just before they came to visit for birthdays. So it was an especially happy time. Dad was here for the birthday celebrations too. These are pics of the birthday celebration weekend just after we found out the good news. Smiles all around!
The table set for dinner!
My daughter in law being uncharacteristically camera shy! Usually she's a ham! But, not feeling up to it this day. Nonetheless, the Mama!
The proud Dad!
Grandpa, trying to soak it all in.
Me, the grandma in-waiting, and Great Grad-Dad!
My Dad is thrilled. It's his 1st Great Grandbaby. So... something to smile about for a while and as the time gets closer, wait with anticipation at what God has in store for each of us through this child. I cannot wait to learn more of His miracles through an innocent child.
