Failure To Launch?

We’re here in Missouri to help watch our three granddaughters while mom and dad are busy with the delivery of granddaughter number four.   We made sure to arrive a couple of weeks ahead of the due date because DIL Amber gave birth two weeks early on the girls. 

Except she’s broken new ground and is already one day past the due date.  A bit perplexing to say the least and the poor girl is sure ready to get this over with.

Another doctor’s appointment on Wednesday and we’ll see where she goes from here.

A fly in the ointment, Marti and I are flying out Friday from St. Louis to Jacksonville, FL for the weekend to attend my old partner, Ron’s retirement ceremony from the Coast Guard, another 30 year man.

When we booked the flights, hotel and rental car, we were sure the new granddaughter would have arrived by that time.  Now we potentially could not be here if the baby arrives then, defeating our purpose for being here.  Oops!

So we’re hoping that we have something transpire quick, really quick this week.  Fingers crossed.

In the mean time, we had a really nice Easter with the girls.  Marti actually got them to sit still for a couple of seconds in their nice Easter outfits.

Little Bekah doesn’t know it yet, but she’s about to become a big sister and she’s not even two yet (her birthday is next month).

Her mom and dad are going to have their hands full.  Thank goodness big sisters Taylor and Kierra are wonderful helpers. :c)

  5. I hope the baby comes before you two have to leave. How long do they wait until they induce labor?

  15. Didn't you know that babies can come anytime? Maybe the new little one is just showing you who is in charge.

  18. Sounds like Rick might have some insider information! :) I hope he's right!
    When my daughter had her 4th, I was amazed at how helpful the 2 oldest actually were. It takes them all to make it work :)

  19. Best wishes for a safe delivery and a healthy mom and baby. We too are waiting for our third daughter to deliver her first, our fifth grandchild. Due date May 19 but I feel sure she won't go that long. But, what do I know?
