Can you guess?

My husband is the talented photographer, but when there are important things to document, I can grab a camera too.
This is the first of many portraits that I will be taking. This is a photo I have dreamt of for many years. I am so full of joy and love I can hardly focus. Can you guess????
Our adorable Jill and her equally adorable husband Jonathan are going to be parents! Yep...that makes US Grandparents and we couldn't be happier!!!!
Munich our Grandpuppy is going to be a big sister. The kids worry a bit about how crowded things may seem in their home, but I say a home filled to capacity with love is a very lovely home to live in. Don't you agree????
So I ordered this darling quilt book to add to my collection.....let the sewing begin!!!! I have heard that being a Grandmother is one of life's best gifts. I am already so in love with our Grandchild.
Thank you God for this blessing and my prayer is that You watch over Jill and Jonathan in this incredible journey that they are taking. May there be much joy, and may He watch over you today and all the days that follow.
And when is this precious baby due....early Spring. I can hardly wait!!!!

Now this is *sew* exciting!
I wonder what you are knitting today?
I hope Jill is doing well and surviving this heat comfortably.
The fabric-diaper wrapped flower pots were a big hit at the baby shower a few weeks ago. Time to start growing some sweet peas!
Enjoy this wonderful time of anticipation!
Big hugs!
