I'm going to be a Grandmother!!!!

  **insert huge happy face here**

My youngest son and his significant other are expecting a baby in Aug/Sep and he called last night with the news that it is a boy.  This will be my very first grandchild!!!  I found out about the baby a few months ago, but I must not have mentioned it in any previous post; so I've decided that this is an event deserving of its very own post. 

I met Vicky last summer when she came to the US for a visit and she is just lovely.  She has been doing well during the pregnancy with some morning sickness but nothing too horrid.

They live in Sydney, Australia and will remain there, which sadly means I'll watch my grandson grow up via photographs.  :(  Vicky is a British subject and has already established residency in AUS; Jeff is working on his.  Wait ... did that make sense?  Aren't Australians' British subjects too?  I think a brush up on my international knowledge is in dire need. 

Anyway, I don't have pictures of Vicky or Vicky and Jeff together so instead I'll post one of my very favorite baby pictures of Jeff.  This was taken Easter Sunday, April 1981 when he was 7 months old.  We sat in the living room of my Mom's home and watched the older kids hunt for eggs through the window.  My Ex took this picture and another of Jeff and I from the outside looking in.  James (my ex) had a really great eye for photography.  I think he missed his calling.  :)
They grow up so fast ...............................
