And then there were two. Just now this very minute for the first time I noticed how little baby girl had hold of her big sister’s finger. Awwww. Be still my heart. My sweet baby girls, and yep, the nurturing just continued on.
A new dimension of nurturing. Grandbabies.
Letting the mommies do the hard stuff while grandma just does the fun stuff. Sending them home after feeding them stuff like sundae cones for breakfast. Or whatever else they might want to eat. Letting them stay up late. And bathe together in my big whirlpool tub. And share grandma’s bed for sleepovers. Lots of babysitting these three. Best times ever.
But about the time I had resigned myself to pouring all my nurturing abilities into plant life and my dog, we received quite the surprise.
Another grandbaby! Our youngest girl and her hubby are expecting a baby boy in September, and if you read my blog post entitled “The Doorkeeper of the Waiting Room” you’ll understand why this is quite the surprise. https://grammybe.blogspot.com/2017/02/the-doorkeeper-of-waiting-room.html In fact, just three days after that post we learned the pregnancy news. 😍🙌 I just can’t stop smiling. God is so good!!
Drumroll….(mommy said I couldn’t post this blog till baby was born):
I am so excited, so VERY excited to tell you that it’s September and Mr. Joseph Eugene has arrived. 10 pounds 13 ounces of cuddly wonderful cuteness!! Thank you, God, for unexpected blessings and perfect timing.
So…. I’m entering Phase 2 of Grandnurturing. My doggy and my houseplants will suffer a bit. But my grammy arms are ready. Ten pounds and 13 ounce baby?? Better join the gym, Grammy B. 😁
