Baby Hart

About a week ago my son Joshua and daughter-in-law Sydni came to see me. Joshua said I have a present for you and as he was talking he kept fiddling with something in his hand. He then handed the object in his hand to me and I looked at it. It took a good 10 seconds or longer to me to process what I was looking at. It was the positive pregnancy test that they had taken. I was stunned then I bent over and cried. I was beyond thrilled. What a wonderful day. I was so honored that I was the first that they told. What was most amazing was that I was able to keep their secret until they wanted others to know. I will never forget when they came into the ER and had a pregnancy test done. I was not at the station when the results came in and no one else knew why they were there. When I came back in Heather had a lab result paper in her hand and her expression was like a deer in headlights. She had the paper clutched to her chest and she was just staring at me. I nodded to her to let he know that I knew and she started to laugh and hugged me. The big deal was to keep it quiet in the ER so that "Taunt" Jill wouldn't find out till the kids could tell her. A few days later Josh came by to see Jill and asked her if Grande Taunte Jill was the proper term. Apparently that meant 'big' aunt Jill and not great aunt. Took her a minute too, to figure out what he was trying to say. She thought that he was telling her that Ellie the dog was having puppies(Jill owns Ellie's mom) Now everyone knows and all are thrilled so when, years from now, Baby Hart reads his or her grandma's blog he/she will know that from the first there was an abundance of love.

We share in this incredible moment in time with all of you! Ashley had sent Josh a private message asking how he was and that she missed him. He told her the news and said she could tell us, but to keep it a secret and that it was not public yet. The news brought tears to my eyes and we are so excited for Josh and Sydni! Cherish every single moment with your children and grandchildren. I have two grandkids that I cannot visit, one of which is now one year old and I have not met him. My son lives in Seattle, Washington and my other son, Adam will be moving in with his brother in Washington. Ashley is taking this so hard. Both her brothers across the US from us. I would give anything to be able to have my grandbabies near me. I probably shared more than you care to know here. LOL! Diarrhea of the fingertips again. :-) Congratulations Grandma!
