A Baby Girl

A Baby Girl was born to my son and his wife today. I don't think anyone will forget her birthday anytime soon - 10/10/10.

I remember when my first niece was born and my father said that he finally understood the Biblical blessing: May you live to see your children's children.

It was a long labor, starting on Friday night, ending in a c-section late this morning. I was at my meeting this morning, I left twice because my phone was ringing or texting. It was on silent, I apologized in advance. They could have thrown me out if they wanted to, that is fine with me.

I am floating on the clouds because I am so happy for my son. My son who is now a father.

Oh, it is beyond wonderful.

Congrats to you, your son, his wife and the new baby! The stem on your pumpkin picture looks just like a cut umbilical cord..but then that is how my weird mind works...

Are you all on a pink cloud nine or what..

OH THIS IS FABULOUS NEWS TO BE READING FIRST THING ON A MONDAY MORNING!!!!
Mondays child is fair of face,
Tuesdays child is full of grace,
Wednesdays child is full of woe,
Thursdays child has far to go,
Fridays child is loving and giving,
Saturdays child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

LIBRA
Libra is the only inanimate sign of the zodiac, all the others representing either humans or animals. Many modern astrologers regard it as the most desirable of zodiacal types because it represents the zenith of the year, the high point of the seasons, when the harvest of all the hard work of the spring is reaped.
