Waitin’ on a woman (I hope)!

I sit here today waiting on my 4th grandchild to be born.

My daughter is not due today or even tomorrow.

She is not scheduled for a c-section so we don’t know when baby will appear.

She is actually having a home-birth ~ her second.

We don’t know what she is having ~ other than it’s a baby.

So I sit here waiting on the phone call to tell me “it’s time”.

I have realized recently and probably longer if I were completely honest with myself, I am not a very patient person. There are a few things that get to me rather quickly and my patients run thin (but that is for another post). I am sure you can relate. Don’t judge, we all have our issues.

But right now I am calmly waiting on that phone call! Okay, so I say calmly, but inside I am jumping up and down so anxious to hold a newborn baby! I really want it to be a girl, only because I already have three sweet grandsons and a fourth grandson due in June (my son’s wife). I think it is high time this family bought some pink frilly things!

So that is the reason for the title of this blog. I really hope we have been waiting on a woman! Or rather a baby girl!!

I remember when I had my first child, a girl. Then our second was also a girl. When I got pregnant with our third I was scared to have a boy at this point. I wasn’t sure what to do with a boy after six years of pink. But when we got our boy we figured it out. And bought blue!

Now, in my daughter’s family, they have some of the wildest, craziest, sweetest boys you will ever meet. The oldest, 6 and a half, is positive this baby is a girl. He is desperate for a sister. I think he will be the best big brother to a little girl the world has ever seen. The middle child, 5, says he wants a sister, too, but I don’t think he cares as much as his older brother. The current baby of the family, 2, does not understand what is happening. He kisses mommy’s belly and is so sweet but in a few days his world will be turned upside down, whether we get a boy or girl, he will no longer be the “baby”. I think he will adjust fine but it may be a bit tough on him. I guess Granna (that’s me!) will have to give him some extra lovin’! He is so sweet, I will enjoy that!

Irregardless of what this newest member to our family is, I want a healthy baby. Yes, I would love to continue (yes, I have been buying some pink) buying pink clothes.But a healthy baby and momma are more important than gender.

But for it to be a girl………………..

I can come out to the world and shout it from the roof tops!

{{I AM GRANNA TO A GIRL}}!!

But in the mean time………I am sitting around here………waiting on a woman (hopefully two, one to give birth and one to be born)!!

The following link is Jaclyn’s birth story for Everett. It was the most amazing thing I have ever been a part of. I hope you enjoy it, too. Would you ever have a home birth?
