"Baby Watch"
I just wanted to stop in real quick to let y'all know that we are now officially on "baby watch!" Little Benjamin is due today and we are all eagerly awaiting his arrival. Something tells me he might make us wait for awhile, though! Who knows, maybe he will end up being a Christmas baby ~ how special would that be!!! :) I'll be sure and let everyone know as soon as "Baby Ben" has made his appearance! If I don't talk to you before, I wish you and your families a most blessed and Merry Christmas.
Much love from a very excited Nana-to-be,
Susan P.
After the baby is born we are bringing Ashley some Ben and Jerry's ice cream. We thought it would be very appropriate since it's named after the two men in her life!!! BTW, she has requested chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream ~ a girl after my own heart:)
Monday Night 12/22
No baby yet!!! We're still waiting.......................!!!!!!!!!!!Thank y'all so much for all the love and well wishes ~ they mean more than you will ever know. Y'all are simply the best!!
Tuesday Night 12/23

I am sure baby Ben will be all so ready to introduce himself to his new family very soon and he will be one blessed little boy to enter into your home and family. Wonderful wishes for you and your family for a blessed Christmas week and give little Ben a welcome from all of his Nana's blogging friends.

Susan, You will have so much fun with baby Ben. I have a grandson named Ben and he is very much like me in his passions-even at just 5.
Also my youngest daughter was a Christmas baby-it is so special.
I love you that will be a nana also. Blessings to you and yours.

Hi Susan ~ Just checking in to let you know I just became "Granny" last night! My son and daughter-in-law in Michigan weren't expecting little Ethan to arrive until Jan 6th. We were shocked when we got a message that he was almost here! (I put a picture on our blog today via his cell phone!)

So I hope you have a Christmas grandson, too. And I'm jealous that your little one is so closeby to you. I know you'll be a great grandma!

Lura said...

Love the ice cream idea. Very cute! I keep checking back to see if he's come yet. He just might end up a Christmas present yet!

Still waiting? Oh, it's so exciting and so difficult to be patient at this stage! May the birth go very well!!! Maybe you WILL have a Christmas grandson!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
