When my son and daughter-in-law first told us they were expecting our first grandchild in May, I was so excited I ran over to the Yankee Store in the South Street Seaport, in Manhattan, to buy some baby things, because my son is a avid Yankee baseball fan. I picked up a tee shirt, pacifier, receiving blanket, bath towel, and a bib -- almost anything I could find for an infant that had the Yankee logo on it. When my husband saw them he said: "Very nice, but what if the baby is a girl?" I said: "No problem, she'll still be a Yankee fan!" Of course the baby will also be a Colorado Rockies fan, since my son and daughter-in-law have settled in Colorado, but I know that another avid Yankee fan is destined to be born soon.
I guess my rash first impulse was right! We were all so very happy and excited to see the sonogram photos of the little guy, and we can't wait to be able to hold him in our arms!
We are preparing, and dreaming about becoming GRANDPARENTS in the fall!
