164 is a cryptic title post, no?

Yes, I will admit, it is a little cryptic. . .keep reading to find out why 164 is a number to celebrate.

164 has nothing to do with when Army Boy and Wifey Poo stood before Preacher Man to enthusiastically recite their vows, and say "I do!"
And it has nothing to do with either of their birthdays, one in January and one in March. And it has nothing to do with the number of bubbles they were showered with following their ceremony.
Getting closer to the meaning behind the cryptic number, but still not hitting the proverbial nail on the head, 164 was not the number of hopes and/or dreams they shared for their future together as man and wife.
Here's another clue about the number 164. . .it is not the amount of dollars I have spent recently on cotton yarn for baby toys and sweaters. . .I would assume that number is much lower. . .so far anyway. Here is my latest purchase, I think I spent about $30.
I have some different cottons in my stash as well, and I would guess that I have spent under $100 for all the cotton, baby toy/sweater yarn I own currently. Sweater yarn for me, that's a different story!!! Are you ready to know the secret behind the cryptic number???
Well, hold onto your hat! 164 is the number of beats per minute that my Dear Daughter-In-Law's BABY's heart was beating when she had an ultrasound at her first OB appointment yesterday! Did you catch that? I am gonna be a Gramma! And Sweetie is gonna be a Grampa!
Isn't that the cutest little ultrasound picture, evahhhh?!? Congratulations to the Mommy- and Daddy-to-be! And to me. . .soooo, I am celebrating by knitting
Baby Blankie/Toys in plush and other yarns.
And being one Happy Grammarumi-to-be!
Knit in Good Health!
