The Baby Bump!

Taaa - Daaa! That's my grandbaby in there!!!

This photo was obviously taken with her phone and isn't the best quality (photographer's disclaimer)-she's having computer issues and therefore couldn't take it with her mega-camera).

We found out the exciting news on Mother's Day (Aw, she suspected it for a while, but for sentimentality, waited until Mother's Day to take the test. :-D). We were sworn to secrecy, however, until she was safely in the second trimester. She's now a little over 18 weeks and due January 10, 2010! And she's beginning to feel the relished movement - mostly flutters, with the occasional unmistakable kick! Nic hasn't been able to feel it yet on the outside... but soon, I'm sure.

We find out tomorrow whether we're having a grandson or granddaughter, provided, of course, that our little pun'kin cooperates and provides the requisite - ahem- viewing. ...I'll let you know soon if we should be focusing on pink or blue.

We're ecstatic!!

Oh, Pam!!!
What a beautiful little baby bump!

I've just been dying to know how everything is going, and all the fluffing and flurry-ing and nesting that goes on before a first baby.

This is so exciting!

You're going to LOVE grandparenting. And though I don't know you, except from the blog, I think you'll make an exceptional grandma-ma!

I'll be waiting for the big news tomorrow!!!
