And Baby Makes Three
Our middle daughter, Leslie, is due to deliver her first child, Landon. Soon. I'm in Texas now, to help with grandchildren while Sarah and Chris are at the hospital with Addison. I leave next week, heading back to Pennsylvania for a whole 20 days. About that time Landon should be on the scene, and Papa and I will be back for more baby-business. 2006 has had a LOT of baby-business!
Leslie, begrudgingly, joined her crazy family in blogland a few months back. There's not a bandwagon-jumpin' bone in her body. We pushed, prodded, bugged, forced her into it. She just wasn't having much fun being there. Then she won a new template (sorry, I'd give credit here if I knew who to give it to). She decided to make some changes. New template, why not a whole new blog? Her new one will be dedicated to their family, more specifically what's up with their new baby, Landon. Right now you can go to And Baby Makes Three and see their new nursery. (Just please don't ask me to sew you bumper pads...) Everything's ready, just waiting on him. You likely won't see Leslie doing memes, Thursday Thirteens, WFMW, etc. You'll see a lot of baby business. She thinks that's manageable for her, especially since she returns to teaching this week. We, her famiy, are tickled she found something that works for her. And shows us recent photos of the newest member of our family.
Right before I did this post I went over to My Quiet Corner to read her most recent post. It's a nice place to have a cup of morning coffee. She had just come up with the idea of a central place to welcome new bloggers. So if you're new, that being May 2006 or more recent, you can go there, leave a link, and watch the welcomes roll in. If you'd also like to check out some new blogs, this is the place to go. Sort of like welcoming the new family who moved in, down the street, with a freshly baked loaf of banana bread. Without the baking. I hope you'll check out Leslie's new sock monkey theme blog, and also run over and say hello to all the neighbors. Make them feel like they can knock on your door for a cup of sugar or a couple of eggs. To bake banana bread.
