Preparing for our little one

Because I had a long weekend last weekend, I headed east to see my daughter and her wife.  I was welcomed to their home in style with a Georgetown Cupcake.  We had Georgetown cupcakes at the wedding reception.  They are my daughter's favorite.
perfect!
 I'm going to be a grandma in March.  While I was back east, we had a baby shower.  Our hostess is so clever.  Seems to me she thought of everything.  And this is a woman who has an extremely busy career and is mom to two daughters.  She is amazing.

 My daughter's wife is carrying the baby.  Her sister hosted the shower and had these banners for the moms to be to wear...this is my daughter, below.

Grandma Cheryl
 Grandma Cheryl is a new title for me.  A new role.  I am more excited than I can possibly express.  When I visited in the fall, I got to hear the baby's heart beat.  That rates up there with one of the most miraculous, marvelous moments of my life.  My eyes filled with tears.
When we said our good-byes at the airport I said "the next time I see you the baby will be here!"  This new prospect has turned me into a marshmallow.  I previously thought that I was a tough old broad.  I'm happy to know I still have a tender heart.  It just took this new little life to remind me.

Congratulations Grandma Cheryl! I think that does sound better than Granny Cheryl don't you! lol Although I do like the name Granny because that is what I have is a Granny. You didn't say if the baby is going to be a boy or a girl. I tried to figure it out by looking at the gift bags and the clothes hanging on the line. I came to the conclusion that they are going to wait until they have it to find out because of all of the yellows and whites! I didn't know what I was having with my first baby. Found out by mistake what my second one was.

Hugs,
Angela

How thrilling for you kiddo! Being a grammy is terrific, what sucks is when they live so darn far away!
That hostess really had some clever ideas, and very different ones. So glad you went to be part of it all. Happy grammy days are soon coming your way! You'll love it!

Angela,
Yes, they are waiting to be surprised. They do not want to know. My daughter's dad and I didn't know either time what we were having. The only thing they said was "the heartbeat is fast, sounds like a girl" (and they were right) and then "the heart beat is slow, sounds like a boy." (And they were right.)But we didn't know for sure.

AWWWW! This is so absolutely sweet. While I'm happy for the moms-to-be, there is something that I see in the eyes of my mom that makes me know that the moment when one becomes a grandma is one of the most precious moments in life.

So congrats... ;)
