Today marked another milestone in my sweet baby girl's dreams coming true. It's a boy! Jessica and John are going to have a sweet baby boy. At 14 weeks it is early to know, but they had the Panoramic genetic test done and everything came back perfect. Jess told me a week ago it was a boy. A momma just knows.
Obviously, I cried when I found out. Nothing brings tears to my eyes quicker these days then thoughts of my grandbaby. Knowing the gender just clicks everything into a bit sharper focus. I can picture him more clearly now. I can almost smell that intoxicating baby smell. I can't wait to kiss his feet. I'm madly in love already.
Now that I'm pledging into the Nana Gigi Grandma Sorority, I have a whole new insight into the women I know who are grandmas. Wow. How do you ever utter a sentence that is not about your grandbaby? This is going to be a thrill! I wonder if GrandMummy blogs will be the new thing. I'll try to refrain, although it will be difficult.
In other, much less important news, we are packing for another adventure. I'm packing bright colors and dangly earrings, flip flops and maxi-dresses and even a swimsuit. Goodbye, London! We're off to a Red Sea resort in Hurghada, Eygypt. But, it won't be just lazing about in the sun, although mostly. We're taking an excursion to Cairo and Luxor. I'm actually going to see the great pyramids. Pinch me.
I'm a bit giddy today, I must admit. So with thoughts of babies and beaches rolling around in my head, I'm going to share a few more photos from our day in the Kew Gardens. If you have a camera, run don't walk to Kew Gardens. It's a feast for the lens.
These are some of my favorite photos from that day, because green is my favorite color. Although I say that about all the photos I've edited from that day. Oh, there are more.
I hope to be instagraming from Egypt if you like to follow along. And a huge thank you to everyone who's sent such sweet words and thoughts about the new addition to our family. We're obviously over the moon already.
What's got you over the moon lately?
