My heart aches that I won't be able to be able to hold her and cuddle her in these next couple of months - darn all those miles apart that we live! Steve, I and Stephani do plan on driving down in late Sept., and then I'll be able to hold her and rock her some. Can't wait!!! I'll have to share her with her Grandpa Steve and Auntie Steph, but that's okey. By the end of September she will have been home for awhile, and I'm sure Jessica will have a good routine established. Wonder what will happen when the Grandmas come and try to spoil her!
The baby shower on Saturday was fun. Baby Renee got a lot of nice clothes, a jogging stroller, and a clothes hamper. She will be the best dressed little girl in New Iberia! We laughed and had a good time visiting with Jessica's friends, sister-in-law, and mother-in-law. A few of the husbands came with (with their own presents of baby diapers) and Floyd and the guys had a few hot games of dominos out under the car port. They later grilled burgers, boudin, and beef and chicken shishkabobs.
Our trip has been wonderful - getting to meet our new grand daughter! Even the hot weather hasn't been so bad! (can't believe I just printed that!)
Sad that I'm now planning the trip home, but there will be another one soon enough!
