Tickled Pink!


I had a completely different Pink Saturday post planned for today
 but then I received the wonderful news on Thursday evening from
 my son and daughter-in-law that the second child they are
 expecting in March will be a

baby girl!

17 weeks sonogram



We are all tickled
pink!




Our hearts are filled with happiness,

our lives are filled with love,

because we will have the 

granddaughter

that we've been dreaming of!




Thank you Beverly of How Sweet The Sound for giving me this opportunity to announce our happy news on Pink Saturday! Please visit Beverly today to see links to all the blogs participating today with sweet pink posts.

What super news! A baby granddaughter – congratulations. I have looked through your back posts and was in admiration over your beautiful pictures, especially Yosemite Park. It brought back so many memories. I remember hiking to Hetch Hetchy Reservoir with my soon to be husband and seeing my first bear there (early in the morning.)

Jeanne said...

Hello Pat, I guessed your PINK news. Big smile! Congratulations on the most wonderful news. A baby girl is coming, that is pink as you can get. Love your exciting news in this sweet post.

It is 1:30 in the morning and We just arrived home (my dtrs home in Jax, Fl.) from a Gator game. We lost bt three points in a real cliff hanger. Sigh! Tomorrow we head back to NC. A quick trip and tiring but it is always wonderful to see our family here in Fl.

It is PAST my bedtime and it is a good 9 hours to drive home in the am.

I'll probably dream of pinkie dresses and sweet little baby girls.
Hugs, Jeanne

Lisa said...

Congratulation. Aww

I know you are having too much fun being "in the pink." In the 50's it was called "the million dollar family" - a son and a daughter. Although any combination works for me! Congrats to the lucky family!

So exciting, Pat! Congratulations to you and your family!

That is so awesome! My niece Katelin is expecting a baby in May. I am hoping for a girl because she works for The Childrens Place while attending nursing school and the clothes there are so cute! My little niece Sarah got a brand new outfit with a skirt that was made of blue/purple tulle! I am going to write a blog about Sarah,She is an incredible little girl. Belongs to my niece Holly! But I think your grandson is absolutely the sweetest little guy and I think he will make a great big brother! That is just sweet! Congrats to all your family! Anne
