Fairy Princess

My husband, Terry, comes from a family with 2 boys, Terry and his brother Mike. Then Terry and I married and we have 2 sons, Jacob and Benjamin. Ben has not given me any grand-children yet. But my oldest son, Jake and his wife had 2 sons. Do you see the pattern here?

Well, that all changed yesterday morning at 8:04 AM when Madison Marie was born weighing in at 7 lbs 12 oz and 21 inches long. What hair she does have looks brown. That is what we all wanted. Madison's, we'll call her Maddy, two brothers, Hunter and Gavin have red hair and blonde respectively. So we needed a brunette. Speaking from a totally biased point of view, Maddy is beautiful.

There is something magical about baby girls. It brings out the protector in all of us. Of course, we are always careful with babies, that is natural. But I think with girls, we take extra precaution to safeguard them. I don't think of it so much as the delicate flower syndrome. It's more like the future mother idea. It's a simple fact. Girl-children can have babies, boy-children cannot. Or put more succinctly, Girls Rule, Boys Drool.

No comments:

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
