All babies are blessings from God no matter the circumstances of their conception and birth.
With that….we will be welcoming two new grandbabies this year. These two girls will be mommies! (I will have to add an updated photo of them now).
One is due October 31st. The other November 5th. The race is on to see who will give Dave a birthday present on November 1st!
We have a granddaughter born on my birthday…..he thinks it would be cool to have a grandbaby born on his birthday too. Who knows….maybe he’ll get two.
Although I won’t mind having two the same day, one is traveling to the big city for appointments and birth (45 miles away) and the other will be here in town. I have about seven months to figure out how to clone myself just in case.
Ashley is the one who told us first. Her and her boyfriend broke up and he moved six hours away to live with his Aunt. A couple weeks later she found out she was pregnant. Silly boy thought we’d be more than happy to give our blessings for Ashley to move up there with him and his Aunt (and cousin) would take care of her too. We said as Christians, we can’t condone that. And as her parents, we won’t condone that either. Then he worked on secretly trying to figure out how to sneak her out of here. She refused to do that…praise the Lord. So she will stay here. He will work on getting a job (news of baby hasn’t pushed him any harder in this area) and maintaining that for 9-12 months plus housing, before we will give our blessing for marriage. Since their relationship was pretty volatile, they have some major work to do there too if marriage will be a success. We would rather see her be a single mom vs being divorced in less than a year.
Jaime is our other new mommy. She moved out of the house last May. Her boyfriend moved in with her a couple months later. He feels they need to date and get to know each other for at least two years before marriage and baby hasn’t changed his plan in that area. Breaks my heart that he thinks my daughter is good enough to move in with, to sleep with, to make a baby with but not to marry. He also doesn’t like us talking about the baby in front of him. I get that he is scared….this is a guy that said he never ever wanted kids….but, the deed is done. Reality check. You play, you pay. And he will have to deal with proud grandparents
Both girls are 10 weeks this week. From the heartbeats I’d say Ashley is having a boy (name currently chosen is Matthew Tyler) and Jaime is having a girl (name currently chosen is Christina Marie).
I’m excited for new grandbabies (currently the youngest will be 10 in June). I’m not pleased with the circumstances on why they are on the way. But the deed is done, they are on their way. I will love ‘em up for sure!
Please keep my girls and their relationships as well as their pregnancies in your prayers.
