I am so damn excited I can’t stand it. I knew I didn’t care whether I was going to have a granddaughter or a grandson, but what I didn’t realize until after the sonogram was that I had been unconsciously stressing about the baby’s health. Hey, it’s what I do: worry!
My son-in-law was so nervous while we waited for the doc to come in I had to laugh. Here’s a guy who was as cool as a cucumber on his wedding day, patiently waiting at the altar for my husband to hand over our daughter. But today, he was nervous and fidgety and it was making me nervous and fidgety!
So at first, my granddaughter was not cooperating. The umbilical cord was between her legs and the doc couldn’t get a good shot. But while we waited for cooperation, the doc went over that baby front to back, up and down, backwards and frontward, inside and out. I was leaning over her shoulder asking what was what, although you could see her little face (she’s gorgeous btw) and hands and feet and arms and skeleton so clearly it was like she was right there, instead of in my daughter’s belly. And when the doc was finally done with her examination of the baby, I asked her, “So everything looks perfect and healthy?”
She looked up at me and said, “Yep.”
I broke down and cried. I was so relieved! Then the cord slid to one side and the doc said, “It looks like a girl from here.”
My son-in-law said, “Great, three generations of Beezies.” It was priceless.
So, I have a granddaughter!!! Hubby is ecstatic, and my sons are already honing their hunt-the-bastard-down-and-kill-him-if-he-hurts-their-niece skills.
I already bought her coming homing for the hospital outfit 6 weeks ago. I had a hunch…
So, along with this wonderful news, I want to just say to the ladies of WisRWA, Thank you for making me feel so welcome! To my new friends, Cat, and Megan and Renee, and Heather and Thea, and Trish, and Jody, and both Anns, and to all the others, thank you for making the con so memorable. To my dear friends Edie and Liz, hugs and kisses. I heart you both. To Liz S and Kathleen P and Marilyn, and Donna K and Stacy N it was so nice to finally meet you face to face! (although Marilyn and I have met before, but it was so nice to see you again!). I came home dog ass tired, and swore when I got off the plane, I wasn’t going to travel all day for any con! But by the time I told hubby about the weekend, I said, “I’d do it again. And I will if they invite me back next year!” hint hint.
I also wanted to let y’all know I’m going to be guest blogging over at my friends Greta’s place tomorrow. http://idonotwanttowaitiwantthebooknow.wordpress.com/
C’mon over and harass me. And give me a few days to get all of these prizes together. I have a busy week ahead and might get a wee bit more behind. My mailbox is overflowing with emails I should have returned weeks ago. Bad, Karin.
