Gee, it's just been so long since I've felt like writing anything. The winter really gave me the blues this year, more than in years past. I even went to Florida for two weeks in February to get out of the cold and the temps never got out of the 40's. We didn't even get to go to the beach...spent most of our time indoors. I could have done that in New York.
So anyway, I just went back down to Florida last week to visit my daughter. She just found out she's pregnant and is having a Thanksgiving baby. It's her first so she's scared and wanted her mommy. This time the weather was beautiful, perfect actually. We had a great visit and I was able to reassure her and help her to feel better. She had her first doctor's appointment Monday and she brought me, Dave (the baby's father) and her friend Lisa with her. She insisted we all go in with her. I imagine she's the first patient to bring her entourage with her.
She's my youngest so this is really special; my baby is having a baby. But it's not my first grandchild. I have five already, four grandsons and a granddaughter. Courtney and Dave both want a boy, so I hope they get their wish. I'll be happy either way. She'll know in about four months when she has her sonogram and as soon as I know, I'll know whether to crochet a blue or pink baby afghan.
I'll see her again in July when they come to NY for a family reunion. I can't wait to see her pregnant. She's a tiny little thing, barely weighing a hundred pounds. Tall and skinny. I imagine she'll look like she swallowed a basketball.
Until then, I'll entertain myself buying baby things. Such fun....
