Keeping an Eye Out

We are keeping an eye out...


Watching the clock...


Waiting for the phone to ring as the minutes tick by.


We're waiting for the call to hit the road and welcome Kevin and Molly's first baby. Our first baby. We're watching!


And we know as much as we want to get things rolling, they want to more!


Due today. I wonder if there's a fine if he's a day late?

How exciting, Jeanie. When my first grandchild was on her way I could not stay home...rushed to the hospital to sit and wait in the waiting room. lol Crazy nana. :)Hope today is the day for you. xo

Happy Baby, whenever he arrives.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Good luck. I've been told they come on their timetable, not anyone else's. I hope it's soon for you and Rick, though.

How very exciting for you and your family, Jeanie! When our first grand baby was born, our son was in Japan, so it took a little while before I was able to fly over and see her. She's going to be 14 this summer. Time will go so quickly, so enjoy them as much as you can!

How exciting, Jeanie! Best wishes for baby's safe journey into this world, and mama's speedy road to recovery.

Jeanie, what a coincidence -- I'm on baby watch right now, too! My "honorary son" and his wife are at the hospital, and I just got back from his mother's house. You must be sooo excited! Wishing all of you the very best.

The waiting can be excruciating!! I hope he makes his arrival soon! Seems like so many first babies come late (at least that has been the case with my friends/family). It's even harder for the parents, of course, and certainly for the mom as they tend to be so uncomfortable at this point! I can't wait for the news of his arrival! And hope you are feeling better so you can rush down there and meet him ASAP!!!

Sandra Cox said...

Oh a baby coming! How exciting.

Roz . Russell said...

Oh how exiting, a new baby, I love the smell of new babies, I hope you dont have too long to wait for that precious little bundle x

Kitty said...

No, there is no fine for being late. Rick was 3 weeks late! Hopefully this little one will be more considerate!

Victoria Zigler said...

Did he arrive on time? Or is he keeping you all waiting?

Barb said...

Take my word for it - there is no fine when a baby is tardy! Best wishes to all. Get ready to snuggle!

The French Hutch said...

Jeanie, how exciting for y'al! I know you can't wait to get the call and finally see the baby. Hope to see pics:) My son was two weeks late.........
Sorry I'm late with my visit, a vacation to the beach.

Wandering Wren said...

Since you posted about cookies this morning, I presume you're still waiting. Sigh -- pins and needles, for sure. I hope you don't have to wait much longer, and that all goes well!

These are interesting and wonderful pictures, Jeanie. I love clocks and watches. Congratulations on your first grandchild.

"The Wait" seems forever and then suddenly they are 3 months old . . .

Jenny Woolf said...

What a wonderful selection of photos, Jeanie. I see from today's entry that baby still hasn't put in an appearance, but one thing is certain.. things won't stay that way forever!

Baking is a nice way to pass the time while you're waiting for this blessed event. Your recipe above did not sound German to me either ;-)
We are trying to stay away from temptation after lots of recent birthday celebrating!
Enjoy ♥ Enjoy! oxo
