Our Granddaughter Maddie is engaged to be married a few years from now. As I undertand it her beau put the ring over a game controller while she was out of the room…when she returned she discovered it and her beau went down on a knee and asked her to marry him. So now she has a fiancé.
As you probably know our first Great Grand will arrive this spring.
26 weeks and 2 days
The baby is incubating quite nicely, but refused to kick for me. Maddie very graciously let me feel of her belly. I asked first…as I recall I didn’t want everyone touching my belly when I was pregnant.
I have had fun shopping and guessing what this baby will need. I buy larger clothing. I had a bag full that now grew into a small tote that is overflowing. I have not started on the blanket yet either…I need to decide on a pattern and the yarn..blue. There is a baby shower being planned.
I am looking forward to this bundle of joy…if he is as easy to care for as Maddie was as a baby then she has it made. She didn’t thrive on breast milk, but did well on formula. She like to eat and be burped and to be laid in her crib to go asleep all by herself…none of the snuggling with Grandma in a rocking chair for her…once you laid her in her crib and kissed her goodnight she would smile at you, turn her head and close her eyes…and in a minute or two she was fast asleep.
One time Far Guy was babysitting for the grand girls, it might have been when Paige was born. Maddie was so fussy and he couldn’t figure out what she wanted, so he called me (I was home taking care of the Greenhouse)…I asked him what he fed her…green beans…fruit…some kind of chicken. I told him to warm up another can of green beans and let her eat as many as she wanted… she started stuffing them in her mouth with both hands…her Grandpa was amazed that she could eat so much. She stopped fussing after her tummy was full. I told him how to put her to bed, kiss her goodnight and cover her with her blankie with the satin edge toward her face so she could grab the edge between her fingers. He later reported to me that it worked just like magic.
