And the Color Is.......?

The baby train has left the station! And it is BLUE!!!

J and J found out today that they are expecting a baby boy! I was wrong,(yes I do admit it!) I was sure they would have a girl. But unless technology has made a mistake and saw something that isn't really there, we will have a grandson in a few months! Most importantly, everyone is healthy. Be sure to check the baby ticker on the sidebar for an update.

I thought the expecting parents (and maybe the rest of you) might get a smile from these photos I found buried in a box in the basement this evening.

Here's one proud Dad with his only son. Don't you just love all that hair (on baby J too!) Both pretty cute aren't they?

Here's baby JMD with Grandpa JMD. Will there be another JMD? This Grandpa was blessed with only daughters and four granddaughters so was very happy to have a grandson. Though he wasn't able to pass the last name along, at least the initials stayed the same!

That's my news for the day!

Baby boy, oh I am on cloud 9 right now. I am so excited. We bought a crib last night (yes James agreed to buy one) and some cute little onsies and shirts that were on sale at Carters, Gymboree, and Babies R Us. I promised not to buy too many as we know that we will get lots of clothes, and hand-me-downs! I love that we are keeping the initials going, that is fun. Loved the pictures!

Hey Mama- I saw the link to the crib - it is wonderful! Manly color for a GRANDSON! I bought stuff yesterday too - almost posted a pic but didn't want to spoil the surprise. I need to control my buying issues until little one is here!

Congratulations! Baby boys are a delight! I speak from experience...twice over! Sounds like you are enjoying yourselves as you prepare for all the fun to come!

Thanks! the crib is adorable, and I cannot wait till it is shipped here. I have seen so many cute clothes that talk about Grandma, specifically 'if mom says no, ask grandma!'. I will have to make sure that he is wearing one of those when he first sees you!

How exciting! Someday I expect to get this kind of news. I'm happy for you and the parents to be.

Today there are so many fabulous ways to document the entire experience...that ticker is so fun. A few years ago I started scrapbooking - boy the stuff they have for this nowdays (digital or just paper is incredible. Enjoy every moment!
