I've been MIA for some weeks now, but checked back in just in time to be the first to congratulate you. There is a reason grandparent begins with "GRAND" because it truly is!

Thanks. everyone! We just found out that it's a boy. He's due on January 25th. I saw his little face on the last sonogram and he does, without a doubt, have his mother's lips (my daughter in law). It's so amazing to see them like that before they are born!

3 brands for me. They are great to have. The best part is you can send them them home with your kids and laugh about it as they pull out the driveway. ENJOY!

Congratulations Sandi! You deserve some good news!

Viktor sounds like he is a perfectly sized little boy. Not too big and not too small. Enjoy him :)

Congratulations Sandi and your little family. A beautiful blessing providing much joy.
They are so tiny . . . then my 10 year old grandson borrowed my thongs (flip flops) to go to the beach on the weekend! When did that happen? Our nine grandies all growing up, with very individual personalities. The youngest, and only girl, has grandpa wrapped around her little finger!
Enjoy every precious moment.
