Best News Ever

Late last night (because our phones are ASS and the call ACTUALLY came in eariler, but we never get calls properly!) we got the most incredible, wonderful news — two of our dearest friends in all the world, Jeff and Sandra, are going to be parents! They received word last night that they will be parents to a beautiful 6-month-old boy, who they will be meeting next week.

I cannot tell you how happy I am for them! (I cried. Even now I am crying. Bah. Such a softie.) Their road to parenthood, like ours, was a challenging one, but I cannot think of two people who would be more caring, devoted parents. They have so much love to give a child, and their new son will be loved and cherished like no other. He is one very lucky little boy indeed.

This morning, when I went to get Stinkerbelle out of her crib and told her about the new baby, she grinned and signed “baby”. And then she clapped her happy baby applause. So, really, I think That Baby gives her official Seal of Approval. I do not know how she will react to the news the first time she has to share her beloved Auntie Sandy and Uncle Jeff with *gasp* ANOTHER BABY (!!), but this morning, she’s cool with it. A playmate!! Life is good!!

I will endeavour in the coming weeks and months to not bombard them with parenting information, baby stuff and useless advice, and to keep a respectful distance as they become a new family. But BDH and I are so very excited for them, and so delighted to meet their beautiful new son, it will be a struggle.

Congratulations, Mom and Dad! We love you guys, and cannot wait to welcome your new son into our hearts and lives for good and ever.

  1. Congratulations to Sandy and Jeff. I am very pleased for you.
    To echo something that has already been said “You will be great parents”
    Love and welcome to the great and challenging job of becoming parent.
    I know you are up to it and wish you the very best!!!!!
    Best wishes from BDH’s parents.

  2. I am so excited and happy for you both. Now BDH and Cinn will have someone to give advice to. Way to go. Enjoy every minute before you know it, that 6 month old will be 6 years old and in school. Time flies. Hugs from down east.

  3. I just found Sandra and Jeff’s link on the site and watched the slideshow of their son. He is so beautiful I had tears in my eyes. Sandra is absolutely beaming! And he has Jeff’s hair!
