Oh my goodness!

Just found out today that I'm going to be a grandma AGAIN!!! HUGE surprise to everyone. Brittany went to the doctor today and she is due July 18th. Baby Mark will be a big brother at the very young age of 10 1/2 months. I KNOW! Pick up your chin off the keyboard, I can't believe it myself....this family is growing FAST!
Pink or Blue...any wagers?!

Wow! Congrats to all of you. Think pink-girls are so fun....

Elisha said...

Wowsers! That's close in age, but it will be fun! My vote is for another boy, just so baby Mark will have a friend close to his age. Although girls are so fun to dress up....Congratulations!

Teresa said...

Congratulations to Brek & Brittany, ,it must have come as a bit of a shock but once they're used to the news it'll be so exciting. Pink or Blue doesn't really matter, a healthy pregnancy and baby is what counts. You'll be a busy Grandma - how exciting!!

Amie said...

Oh my Gosh - Congratulations she is going to be sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo busy but I am guessing you are a great MIL like mine and you will give her lots of help!!

I hope she has a girl but I will bet it is a boy......

Is she over the shock yet??

How wonderful!!! I have a girlfirend that had her son and daughter 11 months apart. They're both grown and married now but still remain very close. When Josh started kindergarten a year ahead of Jennifer...Jen had a hard time in the fact that "he" got to go to school but she couldn't go yet. So Mary had to "play school" with her every day since Jennifer HAD to be doing whatever Joshua did.

Of course Mary got lots of teasing about getting pregnant on the way home from the hospital with baby Josh...everyone was thrilled that another little life was coming into the world.

How wonderful for baby Mark to be a "big brother"!

Jen said...

Holy Cow Georges....let's go for Pink this time!
Hope all goes well...I'm wagering that this was a surprise to Bret and Brit as well, LOL

Briana said...

Woohoo! Congratulations Gramma! I think we all need to pull together and think pink collectively! You need to be able to go buy pink frilly things!

Kelly said...

Wow -- Congratulations Jolene! Thats so exciting!!

I'm definitally thinking pink!

Chris said...

Congrats!!! lets see.... even thou it doesn't matter either way I will still lean towards "pink" (since the men dominate our family.) My boys love having a brother thou so that would work....but I still say pink!!

Fingers crossed and prayers said... for a normal, stress free, and medical free birth.

Melissa said...

Oh my! Congratulations! Thinking "pink" thoughts over here!

Pam said...

WHOA!! I've got so much catching up to do after being sick in bed with the flu for 4 days! I just love all your photos! Especially that smiley faced baby! He is too cute! And man I can't believe he's going to be a big brother! Congrats! And I'm so happy that you are getting to see Chad! He is a handsome soldier!

BTW, my family is now hooked on Christmas kisses thank you very much! ;)

So glad your catering was a success! Congrats!

10 1/2 months ~ WOW! Are we sure they know how this happens? Congrats to all of you!! I'm hoping for PINK ~ lots more fun to shop for girls!!

mn mom said...

Wow, congratulations to you Grandma, and to Brek & Brittany!

My husband & I were married 9 years when we finally got pregnant with our first baby, which I now call my miracle. After that many years we never thought it would happen again! Well, suddenly I was very sick & very pregnant and when I discovered the baby's due date was December 25th, I called this baby my gift. I have very active and spirited 2 & 3 year olds! She will be busy, but oh so rewarding! =)

Cheryl Wray said...

Yippeee!!! That's wonderful news!!! A bit of a surprise, though, for everyone I guess!
I'm going with PINK--I have three daughters, so gotta cheer for the girls!!
