Now and Then. . .

So, this past Monday was a busy day in my Pretty Knitty Life. You all know Army Boy and Wifey-Poo, and if you have been paying even the tiniest bit of attention, you know that the gal that married my son a few years back was ripe with child! That baby was apparently ready to meet her parents, because I got a call on Monday afternoon when it was just about time for that beautiful young woman to check into the hospital!

I was beside myself with joy at the news, and nervous as all get-out. . .I wanted to shout from the rooftops, but I knew it was their news to tell, so I held back (for a few hours), telling only those I saw in person or could call on the phone. . .just me and my phone, pacing and trying to keep my head from exploding!

Finally, at a little after 10pm, we got the word. . .a tiny, 6 pound,10 ounce bundle of healthy girl had
transformed this couple into Parents!!! Dollface was an Auntie!!! Sweetie was a Grampa!!! And me, I was finally a Pretty Knitty Gramma!!!

When I did start talking to my Facebook and Ravelry worlds, I just kept thinking how proud I was of these new parents. . .of how excited and nervous a
nd happy I was for them and their new Little Peanut. . .of how badly I wished that we all lived closer so that I could snuggle that bundle of joy sooner than later. . .of how thrilled I was for them and their brand new family!

I also couldn't help but think of another baby and daddy, some 22 years ago, who put me just over the moon! History repeats itself through the generations, and I hope, and I pray, that the joy I experienced in watching him grow will be increased exponentially for Army Boy and Wifey Poo as they watch her grow. Congratulations, you two! You will be great parents, and we look forward to being here for you whenever you need us, and watching your family grow! We love you!

Thanks for indulging me, Dear Readers, and thanks for stopping by. May the blessings on your family be as rich and full of joy as ours have been!

Knit in Good Health!
