Friday I was working in the kitchen when I heard a knock on the front door. I opened the door only to find my two granddaughter’s Bristol (5) and Willow (3) standing there all alone with big smiles on their faces.
“Girls, what are you doing here?”
Bristol replied, “We’re having a baby brother!”
“WHAT?!?” I screamed. I jumped up and down, and hugged both of them as Jason and Ashley appeared from hiding around the corner.
You see Ashley was supposed to have her sonogram on Tuesday. But unbeknownst to me, she rescheduled it for Friday just so she could surprise everyone with the results. And surprise us she did!
We have four granddaughters and one grandson. I wish you could have seen Bradley’s reaction when he heard the news via Skype. Needless to say, this little boy is thrilled to have another soon-to-be-born boy cousin with whom to play “oh yeah!?” In case you’re wondering, “Oh Yeah” is his and his daddy’s version of floor wrestling, and he loves it!
Ashley baked some sugar cookies that were iced with baby footprints and a question mark. She posted them on her Facebook page just to tease everyone for a few hours. 🙂 I’m grateful I already knew the answer. Finally she bit into one of the cookies to reveal a blue filling with this announcement–It’s a BOY!
After the past few months of mourning the loss of my mom, it is wonderful to be filled with such joy. As Ashley so aptly posted on Facebook, the Walter name lives on in our family!
When was the last time you received surprising good news?
