Baby Vee


This morning we ( Mr. Hero and I and Jessica's sister and mom) got to go to the baby doctor with Jessica and Charlie to see the sonagram. As we all trooped in behind her to the sonagram room I felt like we were "the network"! After she got settled on the bed, the doctor squirted some gooey stuff on her belly and ran the wand over it.

First we saw the little head..........

then the tinest heart beating.........

then the little stomach.........

then the doctor declared.........

"It's a girl!"

Cheers and tears broke out in the room from all the girls!

Well, after wiping my eyes....I declared.........

"Let the shopping begin!"

I left the office and immediatly headed down to our town square to pick up the most adorable little cowgirl figurine I had seen the day before.

Isn't she the cutest thing!

She's got blond hair and braids
just like Jessica!

Boots and a hat and a horse
just like Charlie!

And she's grinning from ear to ear
just like me!

I put her in a big old glass cannister jar I bought from Tony at this great fishing spot. Along with vintage glass beads that Meme had used on her Christmas tree years ago. I'll give her to the kids for Christmas....if I can part with her....she's just too cute!

And I think my new favorite color might!!!!

And did I mention.......

I'm going to have a granddaughter!

(Wow, I've wiped my eyes a bunch today!)
I am so blessed!
Talk about a delighted heart!
Blessings from my heart to yours!
*And the other kids just called to say they've set a wedding date for next December!
I was wanting a Christmas wedding!
God is so awesome!
What a day!
Thank you Jesus!

Oh congratulations!!! I cant wait until I have a granddaughter. I have 2 grandsons and they are wonderful, but they do not like tea parties, wont wear pink and hate to shop. Instead they want aliens and space ships, not tea sets.I love them dearly, but needing a little girl too. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

Hi Patti,
Your blog brought tears to MY eyes! What a great Christmas present we both just received. I was laughing when I saw you went shopping because before I looked at my blog this morning, I was online shopping too!! I'm so in love with my little Riley right now, she is two. I always loved having my own kids, but grandbabies, well, they take over your heart! Congratulations, and I'll definately be in touch. When is the baby due? You know, I "would" have been married 32 years last month also, but have been divorced for ten years now. I also have three "kids", two girls and a son, a daughter-in-law and a son-in-law. Again, congratulations on your new little "pink" bundle of joy. Merry Christmas, Sue
PS My mom was born and raised in Temple, Texas

Hey Patti,
I know we WILL be in touch, as we have alot in common. My "Country Roads" family just left for our Christmas celebation...three little girls, and the youngest is a boy! I LOVE this time of year, and as I told you, my mom's roots are in Texas. Even though she moved to California, in her heart she was always a Texas gal! Take care, Sue
