Mom yet again!

The story I promised earlier this week....

When I found out I was pregnant with Meghan her big brother literally jumped up and down and clapped his hands. He was so excited to have a baby sister. You see, in his 5 year old mind he determined that since he was a boy the baby must be a girl. I tried to explain to him that I may have a boy in my belly, but he would not accept that fact.

When I was 6 months pregnant we moved to San Antonio to join Meghan's dad who was in the Army. We made some great friends there in a short time. One couple, Cliff and Cathy had the most adorable little baby boy, (9 months old) Adriel, with huge blue eyes and white curly hair. He was such a happy baby and we instantly fell in love with him. Matthew loved to go play with the baby and then decided that baby boys were certainly "more cuter" than baby girls. Cathy had wanted a little girl as badly as I did, because Adriel had a big brother. Matthew and Cathy made a deal that if I had a little girl baby then we could just switch babies, we'd take adorable Adriel and Cathy and Cliff could have the little girl.

May 30 Meghan was born. She was about 4 hours old when Matthew held her for the first time. I've never seen such a look on a big brother's face. He was talking to her and kissing her when I said, well Matthew, I guess we better call Cathy so she can come get Meghan and we'll take Adriel home. his reaction...."NO WAY MOMMY! this is the cutest baby I ever seen!" I wish I had the picture to add to this blog, it's enough to bring a tear to your eye.

I know everyone will be happy to have Meghan back Friday. She's gone through withdrawals not blogging, but it has given her more time to work on her book. That's a good thing! If Meghan needs me to be a guest blogger again I will not make any promises to not tell embarrassing stories!

Thank you again to all her guest bloggers. You have all been so good for Meghan, she is very blessed to have each of you in her life. You can find me in the comment section periodically and I have a tigger costume so I'm sure it can be arranged to get a picture of me "bouncing like tigger" when Meghan does indeed tell me I'll be the queen grandma! Much love and fertility to each of you.

What a cute story! I remember when my baby brother came home, holding him and playing and then, so says my mom, about 1/2 an hour into it, asking "So, when do we take him back?" Ah... out of the mouth of babes!
