From a sweet pea to a blueberry
I have a secret. I am going to be a grandmother again!!!! I knew I couldn't keep it in for another day! I am so excited I am beside myself. My Erica is going to have another baby. I knew they wanted their children close in age so I wasn't super surprised. I am just so thrilled for them. She told me 2 Sundays ago during a church dinner. She sat down and said, "I want to show you something but you can't scream or yell or jump up and down." Then she showed me a positive pregnancy test. Well all I could do was grin like a possum and bite clean through my lip!! How redneck are my people?? Carrying around a used pregnancy test...in church no doubt! I raise 'em right! The new baby is due around May 30, 2012. Perfect timing. Once again I am making Erica pose for me each week. Just last week my newest baby was the size of a sweet pea. In one week it has doubled in size and is now the size of a blueberry. I wish I had a blueberry for Erica to hold but no such luck. She actually told her sister, Megan first but swore her to secrecy. When I talked with Megan later she said, "Whooee ! I am so glad she told you because I was about to bust!!" Megan is just the best Aunt ever. This baby will be just as loved and spoiled as little Piper. I just can't wait to get my hands on little him or her. I think they would love a boy but will be just as thrilled with another sweet little girl. God knows what they need. This Mimi thing is just the greatest joy in the world to me. I cannot imagine life without these blessings. All the stuff in the world doesn't hold a candle to a precious new life. I am already in love with this baby too!!
