Distracted

Back in late September and early October, Joe and I received the most welcome news that both of our daughters-in-law were expecting.  I tell you, with sons, the sibling rivalry never ends!

The time has flown by.  For us, anyway.  Probably not so much for T&A and A&A.  It has been wonderful to anticipate, to shower, to belly-rub.  And now it is time to deliver.

A&A elected to learn the gender of their baby, and their little boy will be born at the end of this month.

T&A chose to be surprised.  And their baby is due today.

So I'm a tad distracted.  Staying close to the real phone.  Carrying the dreaded cell phone in my pocket. 

Waiting.

And smiling.  Smiling, oh, so broadly!

Keeping my fingers crossed for 2 safe, quick, and healthy deliveries! We are still waiting for Miss Madeline Rose, due 4/6, to make her appearance. I'm glad we're the ones waitin', Nance, and not the ones carryin'.

Do the proud parents know just how many of us keep checking online for an update? When the Queen gave birth, they used to post the announcement on the railings outside Buckingham Palace.

This is obviously the same system, updated for the new milennium!

I can just imagine how tense and excited you must be - looking forward to hearing wonderful news from you soon.
