It's a ............

The oldest son & his wife are expecting.. our first grandchild! He wanted to know the gender, but the wife did not, so the compromise was, she would tell him on Christmas. She had her fun stringing it out in a few different gift boxes & finally gave him the envelope that said..

The baby is due in April... tax day in fact- but we all know babies are born when they are darned good & ready & not a moment sooner!
The daughter-in-law, Jessica, aka the Mom-to-be had some rough times with severe morning sickness, but that has subsided, and she is feeling better. It has been many many years since I have perused the baby aisles, but it is fun to go there & see all the cool and tiny things they have for babies.
Although twins run strongly in her family, they were happy & relieved to know it is a singular baby, not twins. Whew!

Looking forward to meeting the little darlin'

If I knew grandchildren would be this much fun, I would have had them first.
