Tuesday's terrific topics!!!

First off, I am praying for my daughter in law Heather today, as it looks like baby Catherine will be born today!  She is being induced today, so if you join me in praying, please pray for a safe delivery and happy, healthy baby!

We'll see who came the closest to guessing the delivery date back on this post.   Some of you thought Catherine might actually come on her due date.....well, NOPE.  Some did guess the 12th, but at night.  Maybe we won't have to wait the FULL DAY!!!!!  Hopefully her birthday will be 10/12/10!  Did I mention just how excited I am????

Heather's mom has the honor of the first shift of being there with them, and we get the second.   I can hardly wait to hold her!!!  What about you? Are you a Grandma yet?  Are you a Mom?  What are some of your favorite Mom or Grammie things to do?  How do you handle being a long distance from your children/grandchildren?  Give me some ideas, those of you with experience!! :D

For those who missed out on the Baby Pool on the date, let's have one for Baby Catherine's stats...how much will she weigh, and how long will she be?  Join me in the fun, while I wait this long, long day!!!

BIG, BIG EDIT!!!
I got a text from my son saying she is born, weighing 7 lbs. 12 oz, and 20 inches long!!!  I'll post more when he is able to send me pics and more info.  I"m guessing he's preoccupied at the moment!! :D

I'm soooo excited for you. As a grandma of two - Hannah, almost 3 and Nathan, just turned 1 - it's the best, the absolute best.

I think new mommies and daddies need lots of encouragement that they are doing a good job at parenting. You know that learning curve :) as we learn the babies personality.

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!
And Congratulations!! I was hoping for an update as I read it, and lo and behold, there SHE was!

I'm happier than words can express for you, blog friend. This will definitely go down in your heart as one of the happiest days of your life.

And I don't even care that I guessed the wrong date.

Congratulations on your new healthy granddaughter. My first of 4 grandchildren is my 5 year old granddaughter Elizabeth and she is a joy. She has been followed by 3 darling boys and they have all enriched my lives in so many ways. {I could write a blog about it - oh yeah I all ready do!! ;-) } Anyway, time is the best thing you can give ~ that's where the memories are!
