Baby Shower

Baby Shower

On the 22nd my sister Ronda gave me a baby shower. What fun it was! A friend of mine from Texas flew in and spent some of our spring break with us, so she and her sweet baby rode up to the shower with me and my Oliver.

That blanket I’m holding, my Mom made it. She used a skein of yarn that belonged to my Mema. Mema always made a blanket for the Great Grandchildren. She died in 2010. How special that mom found her yarn. Not only did she find it, she only found one and had to go find yarn that matched it, and she successfully did that. Who knows when Mema actually bought that yarn.

I pretty much have everything that we need to have this baby now. That’s saying a lot because we basically had nothing for a baby. As you well know, I’d had my tubes tied so as Oliver outgrew items, I was happily disposing of them to others and passing them along anywhere but at our house. We were done with this whole baby thing. On to big kids!

But now, now we are back in babyland. And we’re set. And God has provided for the miracle He gave us.

Since it’s April, I can officially say we’re having a baby THIS MONTH. What?! Is it just me or did this fly by?? Maybe because we weren’t expecting it?? I don’t know, but I’m happy, I’m excited. I can’t wait to meet Jude. I already know he’s a mover and a shaker. And he likes to give his Mama heartburn.

Over and out.

    Congratulations! I got pregnant after having my tubes tied also, and when we didn’t have any insurance, who needs maternity insurance after having your tubes tied?? God provides!
