Phew. Already soaked through with sweat but I'm not close to the vomit-point so I feel good.
But I did not come here to talk about that. I came here to discuss the fact that Jessie got an ultrasound this week and so we now know the gender (supposedly- as I have discovered, you can't really be sure until the child grows up enough to tell you) of this little Boo Boo Weatherford.
But first, before I tell you, here's Jessie's most recent pregnant mama picture. With an added August bonus.
Isn't that a pretty belly on a pretty mama?
And...she's having another boy!
August will get a brother and Maggie shall, for the moment at least, remain the only woman child in the bunch.
Which she is certainly sassy enough to handle with no difficulty whatsoever.
And so we shall get another little boy and oh my goodness! Those Moon women and their boys! Precious boys.
And now I can start thinking about another quilt and before we know it, there will be another birth, another sweet miracle of life for us to love on. Jessie says he's an active little guy, playing around in his watery world, practicing his breast stroke, his Australian crawl, his gymnastics so that when he is born he will be strong enough to play with his brother as soon as possible.
My heart is so happy about all of this. And we're going up to see them in a few weeks. I talked to August yesterday and told him that I was going to come and kiss, kiss, kiss him. And play with him. And read books to him. And bite his toes and fingers whereupon he asked politely for his Boppy.
Ah well. He will be getting us both.
And I'm about to run into town to get ingredients to make these.
Except I'm not going to use zucchini of which I have none, but cucumbers and little eggplants and green beans.
Life is good.
Congratulations! My first thought was that little Maggie will remain Queen Maggie for now, at least. :)ReplyDelete
August and his baby brother really DO have a pretty mama.
Yes. Maggie will still be queen.Delete
Pretty mama indeed!
Congratulations Mary! August will have a best friend!! And your family has such beautiful people!❤️❤️ReplyDelete
August WILL have a best friend. Isn't that good?Delete
I had Jennifer's exact thought...Magnolia June gets to remain queen. Congratulations MerMer 💓ReplyDelete
I have to tell you- not only the people here but in the family have all said the same thing- Magnolia will get to remain queen. It's hysterical.Delete
girls are rare in my husbands family. only 3 out of 13 in 3 generations.ReplyDelete
Maggie will continue her rule indeed! How exciting to be welcoming another grandchild, the fifth! Wow. It's awe inspiring. And that picture of Jessie and August is wonderful. Such beauty and joy.ReplyDelete
I know! Five grandchildren! Who could have predicted this? Well, I guess almost anyone but still...it surprises me somehow.Delete
Dearest Mary-Babies are popping out all around you, aren't they. Even though Florida has some hot heat and giant bugs. I went to school for a year in Deland and I encountered silver fish and cockroaches as big as my shoes. It's hot here in Seattle but I got nothing to complain about. Nothing.ReplyDelete
Thanks for staying away from the dreadful news in yr blog posts. I appreciate it. Carry on, and I'm sure your pickles are delicious.
Oh yes. Silverfish and cockroaches. I see a lot more roaches than the silverfish. And it's the little ones that are the worse. We call them German brown roaches. I do not know why. But they are horrible.Delete
I don't feel qualified to talk about the dreadful news and besides- all of us here are already way too aware of what's going on.
None of my pickles are as good as those pickled okra I made one year. I have to be honest. Take care, dear Beth.
Yay! Congratulations all the way round! She's such a beauty. Your girls sure got the boy making thing down! It's kind of wonderful that Miss Maggie remains the one and only cherubic princess. For the time being. So happy for all of you. Big hugs.ReplyDelete
For the time being indeed! One never knows...Delete
You should see her now! And August! They were pure babies when last you saw them. Now they are little people, running around and snatching hearts and snacks.
<3 Boypalooza :) Just as well, there are no baby boys around anymore, they've all got so grown up, we need some more!ReplyDelete
True, Jo! So true.Delete
How exciting! :)ReplyDelete
It is for us. Nothing better.Delete
Couple weeks ago, I ran just about smack dab into your Jessie and August. I blurted out, "You're Jessie Moon!"ReplyDelete
She told me! I figured it was you. That was pretty awesome.Delete
