If I seem a little bit giddy, it's probably because every other minute I'm thinking about the imminent arrival of my third granddaughter, Hazel Marie. Lauren is my oldest daughter, and she is READY for this baby to come!
Hazel was "due" on Monday, but of course she will come when she's good and done in there.
She will be joining sister Ivy Grace (age 2), who talks about her constantly.
Last year at this time, we were waiting (and waiting) for my daughter Meghan's first baby to arrive. Two and a half weeks past her due date, Heidi finally arrived on her mama's birthday, August 2.
Heidi is almost one year old!
The past two summers have brought baby girls into my life.
It's only right that they should meet up with their moms at Target, for a little retail therapy. Being a toddler is tough, man.
And as I look forward to this new one, I'm filled with excitement.
Another little girl to read books to, be silly with, and have tea parties together. We shall play in mud puddles, learn about nature, watch clouds, and chase butterflies. I will teach her how to take naps in forts, which is one of my specialties.
We'll get to make memories for life.
I can hardly wait!
I'll be taking a break from blogging so I can focus on this special time....I'll keep you posted, though, on Hazel's arrival.
