The Ladies Are Coming! The Ladies Are Coming!

This is how I'm referring to Eli and Abby's daughters (for the most part, all of the medical personnel believe the babies to be girls) that are due to arrive early in 2009. And wow. The Ladies. They are thought to be fraternal, meaning that they are of two separate eggs/chromosome/genes, etc. They are distinct and separate individuals. They don't even have to look anything alike. One can be short, brunette and dark-eyed and one can be tall, blond and blue-eyed...um....kind of like their Aunts Jette and Emmy...or their Dad and his brudder Uncle Bubby...tho the two of them have grown to look more and more alike over the years, I must confess. What I find the most fun is that I have four children who, for most of their lives, have looked NOTHING alike and yet, have all looked like me....HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAAH.....oh....I kill me.........

So, the other grammy, Nancy, is wearing a pair of pink earrings each day in honor of, and in anticipation of,.....The Ladies.....

Time will tell who they are and what they're about...if they laugh easily or are prone to pondering...if they tend to run ahead, pulling Mom and Dad's hand when they walk, or lag behind to look at rocks and things...if they will love to play in the dirt, or cover their hands with $9.00 hand soap when she just KNOWS she saw a germ jump off of her sister onto her finger...if they will choose hot pink with flames and glitter as a favorite bedroom color, or go for the more sedate palette favored by Pottery Barn...or if one will look for fairies under bushes, shrubs and flowers while the other is writing stories about them...The Ladies....

I'm waiting....

I can just see Abby walking in to church now with her two little darlings all dolled up and looking fantastic. I am sure that whatever traits they end up with each will be gorgeous in their own right.

Oh, my word. . my dream . . .two little girls to dress. It WILL be fun to see their personalities. . .Mae has really come into her own and I love it! She loves things that I would NEVER choose, but I let her have them because I love that SHE loves them and I don't. It just makes me so happy that she has a little personality of her own. .. hopefully I am nourishing that. Can't wait for two more sweet girls to join our family. California awaits!
