This time, we officially knew about the new grandbaby on May 30th. However, Luke and Frema thought that a new baby might be on the way earlier in May. Like most modern couples, Luke and Frema, rely home pregnancy tests to ascertain the news about impending births. In fact, for Frema's pregnancy with Kara, she tested for positive results six times. Verification of this baby has been more elusive. You can read about the young couple's adventure of family growth by reading posts on Frema's personal blog and on her professional blog, Parental Discretion Advised, that she writes for Parents magazine. You should read some of the entries about this new baby; our daughter-in-law is a passionate writer. But, if you do not check out any of the other links, read about Luke's adventure to buy a home pregnancy test kit. You will not be sorry. This is a very funny and heart-warming story.
This Mother's Day, which is also the second wedding anniversary of the happy couple, I received basket full of lovely scents and the Willow Tree Grandmother figurine from the quickly growing family of Luke, Frema, and Kara. This thoughtful gift may be symbolic of my present status of grandmotherhood to my current grandchildren and to my next grandbaby. Stay tuned for more adventures in being a grandparent.
