The most wonderful news EVER!!!



I do not have a face to see,

Or to put inside a frame.

I do not have soft cheeks to kiss,

I don't yet have a name.

You can't yet hold my tiny hands,

Nor whisper in my ear.

It's still too soon to sing a song,

Or cuddle me so near.

But all will change come March 1st,

That's when they say I'm due.

I'm your new grandson or granddaughter,

I can't wait till I meet you.

All I ask between now and then,

Is your patience while I grow.

I promise I'll be worth the wait,

Because of all the love we'll know.

So what I have to give you now,

is a wish to you from me.

I cannot wait to be a part

Of this wonderful family.

Oh Dawn! I'm so happy for you and your family!!! I can see the light of your "beam" way up here in Gwinnett County!!!! I think you need to start a little art journal for this grandbaby recording all your sweet thoughts for him or her. Wouldn't that be a thrill to have your Mimi hand something like that over to you when you're all grown up? Talk about a priceless treasure...just like your news!

Shopgirl said...

Dear Dawn, I remember the day that we were told about the new life coming into our life. I was there when she (Kayla) took her first breath and forever I became Grandma. Now we have 6 Grandchildren and they are all so dear in me, I can't think about our life without them. You are going to be a wonderful Grandmother, so creative. Kayla grew with glue on her figures and paint in her hair. And the memories of her as a baby, a little girl and now a young Lady is worth more than anything.
Congrats, Mary (Grandma)

Lisa said...

Congratulations! Now you'll have to keep your eye out for more baby things!! What happy days ahead!

sherri (Tied Up In Ribbons) said...

based on my limited (not quite 2 yrs) experience as a grandma, it is a blast. She is just everything I loved about my own kids. I like to think that I (and others who are becoming grandmas) do not look like the grandmas we had -- we are just sooo much younger! Congrats!!!

Jane said...

what wonderful news, Dawn! Know you're excited and already planning some lovely treasures for the baby.
Jane - Jacksonville

Kim said...

What a lovely way to make an announcement - and congratulations.
warmest smiles!

Sue said...

Enjoy every moment-there is nothing else that compares to becoming a grandparent. Our Hannah will soon be 4 months old. I never dreamed that being a grandma could be this rewarding. I can't get enough of her! Watching your son become a father will be such a joy. I love to watch my son and his daughter together.
Sue

Alice Larkin said...

Ah Dawn!!! Welcome to my world. Such joy on earth ~ nothing compares... I have three beautiful boys to love on and, as my daughter lovingly says, I am just "freaky" about those babies. I thought the love I felt as a parent was special, but there is so much more that is special when you become a grandparent. This Mimi wishes you many hugs and kisses to come!
