Happy Dancing - Now Public!

I can now tell you, with great delight and excitement, that our niece Kate and her husband Phil are expecting their first child!

When Kate and Phil made the announcement to the family at the Fourth of July party, I wanted to shout it from the rooftops. But tradition dictates that we wait until Kate had safely navigated her first trimester. Now that she is 14 weeks along, we are very happy to share the good news here.

Kate and Phil are smart, funny, loving and big hearted. This is one lucky baby who has chosen them to be her or his parents!

What fantastic news! Another great niece to be spoilt beyond anything! Congratulations all round!! And yes, Gail, it does sound like you need to relocate. You are missing out on so many happy moments.

Aw thanks! We are super excited!

But in all those glowing descriptions of us you left out "incredibly attractive." I would have accepted "smoking hot" as well.

Nana does think Phil is a "hunk" after all...

Hi Gail -
Can you imagine dealing with the distance back in the "olden days"?
Thank heavens for telephones, e-mail, Skype and airplanes!

Hi Sue -
Thank you for the good wishes!
Everyone is very excited!

Hi Baby Mama Kate -
I apologize for the oversight!
Of course you two are both "smokin' hot" - kind of like Gina Lollobrigida having a baby with Robert Redford!
(Substitute more contemporary celebs as you see fit!)
