The call came in yesterday afternoon. My daughter, Katie, had just gotten the good news. The little baby she is carrying is a boy. And she was excited!
But I had to ask? "Are you OK? You had your heart set on a baby sister for Drew" (her two year old son).
She said, "I'm fine. I'm so happy. Drew will love having a baby brother. We're just happy that the baby seems to be healthy and everything is right on track."
I don't mind saying it - Katie is an excellent mother. I so admire her nurturing and teaching skills. She has patience that I never knew existed. Baby number two is a blessed baby, indeed.
So now, what will they name the baby? I've heard the name, "George," is making a comeback. I'd better let Katie know about this development, just in case she doesn't know.
