I am very proud to announce to you that we are..............
WE'RE GOING TO BE GRANDPARENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I started this year asking God for a little excitement in my life! As though I didn't have enough! I prayed this prayer 28 years ago and as an answer to that prayer.... I became engaged, graduated from high school, went on a mission trip for 2 1/2 months, got married, went to Jamaica(honeymoon) and became pregnant with our first child. All in that order. Not bad for a little prayer!
My dearest 1st grandchild...
I have known about you since Thursday night March 15. Your mom and Dad surprised us all! I think you even surprised them. However... I have thought about you for a long time. As with my own children...your mom.... I have wondered what you will look like?....Will you have any hair?....What is your name? What will you call your grandad and me? You know you have a pretty handsome and fun grandad?! Oh the fun you two will have. Oh what great plans God has for your life little one! My prayer life just got even sweeter! I must admit I can't wait to meet you! To hold your sweet little hand and kiss your precious little feet and face. Your mom and dad won't mind if I hog you for a little while. We have a lot to talk about! Oh and your Aunt Mackenzie...she is in for a rude awakening...but I think the two of you will be the best of friends.
Yes little one, you are going to be one loved kid! You don't know it yet but you have 8 aunts and 4 uncles....and that's just your immediate family. You will not lack for family! Adding you to the bunch will only add to the blessing and the fun! I just hope having you doesn't start a family feud. One baby with this many family members...maybe you will be twins?!! Your Grandma Jackson and I will have to steal you away...She's probably the sweetest woman you will ever meet! Your other grandad... he's pretty cool too! He too will be a lot of fun. I pray one day you realize how blessed you are to have the family heritage that you do. I can't wait to see what plans God has for you!
Keeping you a secret has been a real tough thing...especially for us girls. But your mom and dad are making us wait a little while. So when I finally hit the publish button on this post we are going to be one big happy family! So much to celebrate! They better hurry up! This grandma is one proud lady who wants to tell the whole world about you!
I love you little one....I can't wait to meet you! See you in about 8 months. I'll be the grandma with the tears in my eyes and a great big smile on my face!
So, I said I prayed for a little excitement this year...I wonder what else God has planned! Kelley's 2nd foot surgery, Jessica graduates from high school, Birth of our first grandchild....I wonder what's next?! I'll keep you updated!
grandma...nana... gram.....oh my! I may need help with this one!
