It's A Girl!


From the moment she was born, our granddaughter Rissa has brought so much joy and love into our lives...  

and today she stopped by the office with good news.  


Her, her Mommy and her Daddy had just come 
from the hospital.


This is Rissa's baby sister...


I'm not sure if she would have been so quick to pull the pictures out and show me had the results been different.  

You see, Rissa's motto is, 'Girls Rule, Boys Drool'... 

 and the only boy she'll tolerate is her cousin Jake.  


So come December, Grammy and Pop-Pop will have a new bundle of love to start spoiling all over again. 


Dear Diary,

There's talk of another baby.  I think Mom and Dad are getting me a puppy.  I'm probably not supposed to know, so I'll act surprised.  Let's see...  let me practice..  'oh my!  what do you know about that!!?  A Puppy!  Can I keep him?'  ahem  Ok, let's try this again.  'Mom! Dad!  You're the best!!  Does he come with toys?'  I'll keep working on it.  In the meantime...  I have to try and stay bug free or they might change their minds.  Gracie.

  12. Hi there, Congrat's!!!! WE had both grandsons and granddaughters(more girls than boys)and I can honestly say I love them all but have more fun with the girls.
    So sorry for Gracie though-maybe a stuffed puppy would help?
    Have a great weekend.

  17. Great news. We had a "Girls Rule" family until my grandsons were born. I am learning they really are busier and noisier and never cease to amaze me.

  19. The best thing about having a second one of the same kind is you can use some of the same clothes - - - if they are born the same season. I am happy you are getting another grandchild.
    That's a good picture of you two. . . . . and Gracie still looks tired from all the daytime activity - - - or maybe a combination of the heat, too.

  21. Thanks for visiting my blog. I just wanted to make sure you got this message so I'm leaving it here too. If you make the milk jug toy I described, be sure to make sure Gracie doesn't bit off and swallow any pieces of the milk jug. Kelly chewed it apart, but I got it away before she swallowed it. Let me know! hugs!
