Evaporation


If I appear to evaporate for a few days, it will be that I am attending the birth of my third grandgirl.

My Marie is due to deliver her sweet angel on January 27th!!! None of us (doctor included) believe the baby will wait that long. Of course, we could all be wrong. As the doctor stated to Marie on Thursday, if she had a crystal ball to predict when babies were born...she'd be a millionaire!

Feel free to take a guess when you think my baby girl will deliver her baby girl!

This photo of Marie (which I feel captures her total radiance) was taken late in November at 30 weeks!

Now if only I knew the weather predictions for where she is... Since the full moon was last night, wait for a low depression to settle in over the area. Nothing brings more babies than storms. Just sayin...

But I'm going to predict January 21st.

oh, by the way stop by for two awards I've given you.

ky...oh one two one...has a nice ring! I'll check the farmer's almanac for storm predictions! Oh my, I NEED to get there before the weather gets too bad!!!!!
Thank you for the awards!!!

Hi, Airman Mom, Congrats on the new grandbaby soon to arrive. Thanks for visiting my blog, and yes, the soldier who writes the "Embrace the Suck" blog is just awesome. What a great glimpse he has provided us back home. Makes me laugh at the same time it makes me proud.

I hope your son's time in the war is shorter than we all think it might be, and that he returns home safely to his loved ones.

I like your "cause" and stand behind you on it, as I do all our soldiers. I will refer others to your blog as well.

My best regards,
KJ

AirmanMom said...

michelle... Marie has been predicting the 17th...who knows, she could go into labor on the 17th and deliver on your birthday! I will keep you posted!!!

Amanda said...

I'm not good at predicting things like that (LOL!) But i do hope for a smooth delivery.
She looks just lovely ~ pregnancy really suits her.

Donna said...

Wow, is she ever radiant! She is positively glowing! Best wishes for a new and healthy grandbaby!

Your Marie is absolutely beautiful! And I'm not very good at predicting birth dates, but I'm really, really hoping for January 17. As you know from my blog, that is my Mom's birthday, and also my grandson's. Very, very good people have January 17 birthdays! :)

AirmanMom said...

kim-d...as I shared in my comment to Michelle...the 17th is Marie's date of choice! If my sweet grandgirl has this birthday, she will be among very special people!

AirmanMom said...

donna...your kind words mean so very much. Thank you!!!!!

Mary said...

AM,

I'm guessin' a week early, so Jan 20th, but I will probably be wrong. I do agree with the person who said that babies come during storms. The night before my daughter was born, we got 3 feet of snow and Mom went to town to stay with my aunt and uncle so she would be able to get to the hospital for me to be born.

Congratulations on the new grandbaby. Remember to take photos.

Blessings,
Mary

AirmanMom said...

mary...as always, it is so nice of you to stop by and leave your kind words. I am going to stay at her house tonight...she is not 'feeling well' and yes...we are expecting some snow tomorrow. We'll see! Trust me, I'll have the camera :)

Kathleen said...

Hmmm, I think that your little one may be on the way tonight or tomorrow...I agree with the storm idea, but the full moon does it too (both my boys waited for the full moon!
Congratulations! Can't wait to hear when your little one gets here!

Tonjia said...
