It's a ...

GIRL!!!!



While I was on my blogging break, during Andy's time home I got to be part of something pretty special. Laura and Aaron invited me and Aaron's Mom to come along to their ultrasound, to find out if they were having a boy or a girl.
It was so neat to see the little heart beating, the arms and legs and all the other amazing things you can see on an ultrasound.
This means we are looking forward to meeting our granddaughter around October 11!

Congratulations on your first grandchild. The first one in an amazing experience! (I've also been enthralled at the other five, not just quite the same.)
My first one was a girl also.
Such a precious time, Mari; I'm so happy for you.

Girl I must've missed the post where you announced Laura's pregnancy (if indeed there was such a post), and the other day when you posted a pic of all your young'uns I thought to myself, Laura looks pregnant but I didn't know she was pregnant ... so YAYYYYYY! A little girl! You are going to be over the moon come October, hunny. The fun's about to begin! Fire up that camera and keep the batteries fresh! LOL oh and ... Happy Monday!

For a second, after reading the title I thought the baby was born already. I just thought time must really by flying...but good thing it was not. Congrats to it being a girl. I know you will love to spoil her.

A girl....sweet.

Thanks for commenting on my kitty paw post today!! Hope your week ahead treats you well. So far, the comment issue on my little corner of the world is working right now, so I'm taking advantage of the situation. :o)

Pat said...

I need me one of those...granddaughters that is! I have two grandsons, so I guess I"ll have to wait for the grands!
Boy or girl...doesn't matter, just the incredible blessing of being a grandparent bring enough joy to flood the soul!

Congratulatons !! You are headed to the best part of your life. There is nothing more wonderful than a grandchild, unless it is having a great-grandchild (which I do have).

Musicaljean said...

This is going to be such fun in October when you and Kat and I all welcome our new grands into our families. Wonder who will go first?

Ms. Bake-it said...

Congratulations Mari! How exciting! My son & DIL did the same thing. I agree, it was definitely awesome!

You're going to be a grandma! It's the best, you'll love it. And, while I love my little boys, girls like to do the same things we do, and it's nice to have one first.

Kat aka Beachkat said...

Hi sweet friend!

I'm trying to catch up with my blog friends tonight. It seems like forever since I've had time to just sit at the computer and visit, but tonight I am and it feels sooooo good!

Congratulations! So excited for you! (Our little guy is due on October 18th.)

Hugs,
Kat

What fantastic news Mari! Congratulations. How is your shoulder doing? Better I hope. I injured mine last year, bursitis and for a few months thought - will things ever improve? I'm now heaps better with that. Hope the same for you, improvement soon.
