It's a boy!

Hi little guy.   We are going to have fun together.
OK, you will have indulge me here, it is my first grandchild....a grandchild that I thought would never be........ultra sound shows it is a boy, due May 2nd.   Of course, I can't see it but the technician proclaims it is a boy.   They shared the photos last week and it finally sunk in today that this is really happening.  This afternoon I dug into my hope chest and pulled out my son's baby clothes that I saved.   Wow, I can remember dressing him in each of the outfits I came across like it was yesterday.  I am sure on closer examination, they will be found to have dry rotted elastic.....I mean, they are 35 years old.    
This I can tell is a foot.

After two daughters and nieces I was thrilled to have a boy.  So much so that I could hardly wait to buy him his first flannel shirt.    
Little blue sweater set my M-in-L knitted
Yes, after pink and ruffles I was ready for a rough and tumble boy.
Dad was grinning ear to ear when he brought the super son t-shirt into the hospital.


Remember these?   The little t-shirts that snapped shut.   OMGosh from W. T. Grants no less.
I didn't realize I had packed away  so many outfits and sweaters and blankets.   They are bagged up  for delivery to State College this weekend!  

Pardon the interruption/future interruptions will occur as needed/please return to your current stitching project.

So exciting, Robin! My son, who is nearly 30, had a lone site very similar to the baseball one you kept. That brought back memories!

Congrats on the upcoming arrival of your grandson! I only have one grandchild and it is a boy and he brings lots of joy to my world; I only hope the same happens for you. I was thinking if the clothes are not in good condition maybe you can salvage sections of them and make a baby quilt for his arrival? Look forward to seeing your updates on this ;)
