Okay, so here is my grandchild! My first! Ask me if I'm excited. Go ahead...ask! I am soooo excited I can't EVEN begin to tell you. Seriously, I thought having my own babies was exciting. But this beats everything! (Sorry oldest child and baby girl) This is so different because, I suppose, there is less stress with this baby. I am not totally responsible for this child's up bringing. I am not responsible for teaching this child how to grow up in this world. I just get to help fill in the gaps, (if momma and daddy will allow). And the best part... I will NOT have to be the disciplinarian! I get to play, and read, and do most all the fun things with this child. I will be able to have more patience with this child because I'll be getting my sleep time in (unlike the parents). I will be able to laugh when the child spills the milk all over the place. I will be able to smile indulgently when the child is constantly asking questions (oh yes I will Jessica!). And when the child gets cranky... I will be able to calmly hand it back to it's parents. ;-)
So, evidently, this photo show's what the sex of this child is.... I've looked and looked and I just don't see it. AND I see the arrow but... Okay, I guess I'll take the doctors word on it. It's a boy! I personally don't care what the sex of the baby is. I'm just happy there is a baby on the way! But the first picture is the one I really like. (Thus far.) Because it show's what appears to be a baby. Not an alien life form anymore. It looks like a sleeping baby. Isn't he just precious?!
Okay. I'll stop this now. I know ya'll are probably about to gag from all this sappy stuff. But I gotta tell ya. I'm just a happy and excited nana to be!
So now I'm calculating just how long it may take me to make my yoga socks. I mean, I've got the cuff done on the first sock so far, and it's only taken me 9 days to do that. But the baby is due in August so that really doesn't give me much time to get things made for my grandson! ;-) Grandson... isn't that just the cutest thing to say? Okay, okay. So... maybe I should just get started on a baby hat. You know, one of those "umbilical" style hat. I know you've seen them. They have like a little cord that is tied on top of the hat?. Anyhow, I figure I could start that, (it seems pretty easy.) then, once I'm warmed up again with the knitting needles I could go straight into knitting a little sweater. Oh but I saw some really cute little booties.... Hmmm, perhaps I should abandon the yoga socks and get right to the hat and sweater and booties! ;-)
Isn't this just the most wonderful dilemma?! Have a wonderful day ya'll!
