A Little Announcement

"I'm so excited," The Most Adorable Granddaughter in the World#1 informed me on the phone last night.

"Why are you excited?" I asked.

"Dunno," she replied. (She's obviously been around her uncles too long as this is their stock reply to most questions.) In the background I could hear Son#1 telling her to tell Nana why she was so excited.

"Because Mummy's going to have another baby!" she finally exclaimed. Considering she'd asked her mother a few weeks ago when she was going to grow another baby, you'd think that she'd personally orchestrated this!

The Most Adorable Granddaughter#1 continued to talk about the baby and the more she talked the more excited she became until I wondered if she was about to sprout wings and fly!

I'd been let in on the secret a few hours earlier but I didn't tell The Most Adorable Granddaughter#1 that. Instead I enjoyed her excitement and felt again the rush of pleasure I'd experienced when first told.

We've known of this child for less than twenty-four hours but already I feel such overwhelming love for it. If it's a girl, then finally there will be as many girls in our family as boys (after years of 6 males to one female this is certainly noteworthy). If it's a boy I think I might call him The Most Handsome Little Man in the World. What do you think?
