Let me give you a little background on this one, as most of you have figured out we do have a Grand baby on the way, Tim and Elisa will be parents in August it's kind of scary thinking about it but watching them with other peoples kids I can see they will be loving parents.
Tim and Elisa started dating about five years ago and you could see back then that she was here for the long haul, in other words she became family a long time ago, they have been saving and planning this wedding for the last couple of years, Tim bought her a ring right before he moved about seven hours away to finish college, she stayed here and they worked through a long distance relationship, they planned to marry when he returned home and they made it work.
The wedding date was set and final details were made, Elisa went and bought her wedding dress and called us to share how happy she was with her choice, a week later Tim called to give us the news that she was expecting a baby, he was so scared and wanted to be the one to tell us, I actually had expected it but thought it would be soon after the wedding, needless to say we are so happy for them, I think her parents freaked out a little but on our end a lot of phone calls were made to share the good news, I have hinted around about having a Grand baby some here but wanted to share the news officially with all of you here.
I really don't think that it's an issue myself but I have heard some comments of a marriage coming due to a pregnancy but in this case a pregnancy came due to two people loving each other, the wedding just came in the middle of the process. It kind of reminds me of a statement I heard once about how things have changed, "Used to be you would hear "Pregnant? I didn't even know she was married" now you hear "Married? I didn't even know she was pregnant"
Today the kids went for a sonogram and invited us to go with them because we will not be back in town until after the baby is born, it was so neat to watch this baby bounce around and appear to be sucking his thumb while kicking and being really active, yes I said his so as you know already by the title that "It's A Boy" and as of now Benjamin Wyatt will be our first Grandson around August third, and from watching him today I feel really proud to know that he will be an active little boy who will come by it honest because Tim was always a handful.
Congrats Tim and Elisa, Granny and Papa are just waiting to begin the spoiling process.
