I'm Expecting!

New nest,
Crocheting little hats,
Craving all sorts of un-figure friendly foods...
New aches and pains,
Stopping in the toy aisle....
It's official!
I'm expecting....................
my first grandchild, that is.
As much as I knew that I was technically old enough to have a grandchild, it was still somewhat of a shock to my system. (as well to my daughter who is carrying her the first nine months)
In some ways it still hasn't really sunk in yet.
But I think that I am getting there.
I decided this year that I wanted to learn a new skill this year.
I want to continue learning something new even though I am old.
I chose sewing.
So far the machine I borrowed from my mother sits in the corner.
New plan!
Crocheting.
I have been drooling over some of the etsy sites which sell newborn crocheted hats as photography props. I thought that it would really help my new business if I had my own collection.
It started to dawn on me that it was part of my training.
The gray hair, the new house, the sudden interest in crocheting...
I'M GONNA BE A GRANDMA!

And so it goes...
I am learning to crochet
These are my first four attempts.
I think I'm going to rock this.

Woo Hoo! Congrats on the Grandbaby. My Mom says it was totally worth being a Mom just for the fun of being Grandma. Hopefully I won't find out first hand for awhile!

This is so awesome! And I'm assuming from your most recent post that the baby arrived? Grandmama'ing is the greatest!

Loves!!
