A New Title

Time sure has flown since twenty-six years ago on August 11th when we added a new member to the family.
 Here is our brand new daughter Elaine with her big brother Nick (who was not quite two himself). After a difficult early pregnancy for me due to hyperemesis, Elaine was born healthy and vigorous at just over 7 lbs.

This is my beloved Grandma, who came to stay with us when each of our babies were born.  Elaine was her first great-granddaughter and she loved on her a lot whenever she could. 

Elaine with the love of her life, Chris, on Mother's Day 2009...

...and on the day in February 2011 that they announced they were engaged.

 
 Just after Father's Day Elaine and Chris came over to give Grant a belated Father's Day gift box....

..with a special surprise note inside the indicating a new title for him, and, naturally, for me!!  I have finally been given permission to announce our impending grandparenthood in February 2014.  What an anniversary present that will be!  We are all beyond excited and happy for the new parents-to-be, and rejoice in our new titles.  Happy Birthday, Elaine!  You're going to be a wonderful mommy.
