Grandchild # 5 is on the way!

Friday evening started with me thinking that I was going to babysit the 3 grandsons while Steph & Jeff go see a movie. Gray was the first one in the door when they all arrived. He took his coat off and had on a T-shirt that read "Big Brother". Well, I sort of felt like things were in slow motion and I said " I knew It"......I had a gut feeling while I was waiting on them to arrive that they had something to tell us and they weren't going to a movie.
Steph is having baby # 4 .....due September 18.....and everyone is thrilled!
Mike actually made the statement to me at Christmas time that he wouldn't be surprised if Steph has a baby in August or September this year........Carter & Noah were so excited to tell us they are getting another baby....When we asked Gray if mommy was having a baby, he said "Nooooo" so sweetly. The 3 boys will be such good brothers.
Mike and I are thrilled to be grandparents of "5". She or He will be so loved. It is so amazing to watch our family grow.

Congrats Grandma! How very exciting for your family (especially Steph)!!

Are you sure that you don't want to inherit two Canadian cuties? They could really use a super hip, loving grannie!!

I just knew she was having another baby, I kept asking you over and over and sure enough she is.

You are going to have a house full of grandbabies, how blessed you are.
