A BABY.............
is coming to our family sometime in the wonderous month of
Our oldest granddaughter and her sweet husband
are expecting our

My cup runneth over and over and over and over......
do you ever find yourself asking, "what did I do to deserve all this?" ?
and, can anyone tell me what a great-grandbaby calls a great-grandmother ?

will this precious bit of wonder call me MEMAW, as all the grandkids do?

i mean....i know it will be awhile before "it" can talk, but.....

i already have one million and 19 questions running around in my head...


am I the very first ? I FEEL like the FIRST !

i am pretty sure i MUST be the very FIRST !

"it" is only the size of a LIMA BEAN right now!

just think...i am in love with a lima bean !!!

Congratulations to you and your whole family. A new baby oh how exciting.

My mom is a great grandma to my two little grandsons and they call her grand meme and she loves it. My boys used to call my gram, grandma meme. So guess that is close huh,

How exciting and can't wait to find out overtime what it is. Enjoy the special blessing and this time till it comes.

Dear sweet BJ, I am smiling from ear to ear this morning. Your text is adorable and I can fully understand your happiness. My oldest grandson is going to be twenty soon, but it will be a long time for such a happy event for me. I do have three step great grands from my son's second marriages. They are adorable,but do not live close to me. I haven't met one of them, an adorable little boy. They live in MI. He will be two this Christmas. sigh.


Hugs, Jeanne
