I have been pretty lax about posting this week. I swear it’s not just the lazy in me. While laziness is, indeed, usually the motivation behind my days off, this time I have a good reason… I’m having a grandson!
My daughter has been in the hospital now for over 36 hours. Seems the little guy is pretty comfy in his current location. The doctors have served that stubborn baby with several eviction notices, but he’s doing this on his terms. Don’t tell her I said this, but he’s like his Mommy in that regard.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like I will get to hold Little Man right away. I started running a fever the very day we learned my daughter was going to be induced. Now 2 days later, my head is full, my throat is burning, my lungs ache, and I’ve become one of the world’s leading mucous producers. This does not please Gigi. Lucky for all of the other ultra excited family members, that’s one less person to fight for cuddle time. Good thing I have a whole lifetime of hugs and kisses waiting for me when I feel better.
Hopefully today is the day! My daughter would rather not have a Halloween baby. However, we’ll all take a healthy baby when he decides he’s ready, no matter what day it is. He’s not even born yet, and he’s already calling the shots.
The featured photo is from my daughter’s baby shower. With her and I are the baby’s great-grandmother and his great-great-grandmother. As soon as our little guy arrives, both sides of my family, my mother’s and my father’s, will have 5 living generations.

I’ll update everyone when there are pictures to share!
