It's a boy!

Emily and Craig found out today that the baby is a boy. I didn't care either way, boy or girl, so I would have been thrilled with whatever they said. I grew up with only brothers, so I always thought I'd have little boys, since that is what I knew about, never really being a girly-girl. When I was expecting my babies, they wouldn't tell you for sure so I didn't know what mine were until they were born. I guess God wanted me to experience raising baby girls and sisters on top of that since he blessed up with our 2 daughters. My daughters definitely are a blessing and I wouldn't trade them for all the money in the world. I think God gives us what we are meant to have. So we will be awaiting Thomas Jeffery Nolen to make an appearance at the beginning of August.

P.S. This is not a family photo, just a vintage picture of a little boy that I thought was cute and might resemble our future grand baby. It's hard to find a vintage photo that you are sure is a little boy, since they all used to wear dresses until a certain age.

Love you Granna ;)

P.S. I told you today I think Thomas is going to have curly dark hair...two great minds think alike!

OH,,,CONGRATS!!! You didn't tell me when you e-mailed. I am so excited for you. I so wish my adult children would get their act together and give me a grandbaby soon. Wow,,August will be here before you know it. I bet your already out looking for boy stuff at the thrift stores. I know I would be.
