The most wonderful news

This post will give me more joy to write than anything else I could think of today.  I told you  there are a few exciting things happening here at the moment, well, I am now able to tell you the most exciting one of them.  Our son Kerry and his beautiful partner Sunny are having a baby!  Hanno and I will be grandparents in late March.  I can barely believe my eyes when I read what I have just written.

 This is one of my original stitchery patterns.

This wasn't planned but it's welcomed wholeheartedly by all of us.  Both Kerry and Sunny are hard workers and now that they have a baby to love and care for, they've decided it's time to buy an apartment together.  Sunny is going home to Korea to tell her family and when she comes back again, the search will start to find their first home together.  We are all so excited!  My knitting has taken on a life of its own and when I think of all the projects I could start, my head spins. 

This is one moment in my life when I feel as full as I could be.  I'm full of hope, love, anticipation, joy, generosity and determination.  Now, more than ever, I know that the way we live is preparing for this new life. I hope that when it comes to be my time to die, the world is more like the one I was born into and less like the one I grew up in.  We all owe that to our children and our grandchildren.

I'll stop writing now, I've already gone overboard because only these words matter today: Our son Kerry and his beautiful partner Sunny are having a baby!

  6. Congratulations! Babies are such a joy (and a ton of work). I pray the baby is healthy with ten fingers and ten toes, only one nose and two ears (and all the other proper parts in the right place). :P May the child be a blessing for Kerry, Sunny, Hanno and you (and any others around).

  17. I'm so excited for you! I've heard the second time around with grand-babies is by far the best. You get to do the knitting, the doting, the cookie baking, and then you get to give them back! There are fewer worries, since you have been through it with your own kiddos, and so much less stress.

    Congratulations!

  21. Wow, what fantastic news! Believe me, you are just about to embark on one of the best journeys of your life! Becoming a grandparent has been such a joy to me (I have two granddaughters and one grandson - so far!) and I still get emotional when I remember my sons and their wives telling me they were pregnant! I know you'll enjoy every moment, and that the lucky baby will have the most perfect grandparents!

My mother kept the nappies she used for we five kids for years and finally when the first grandchild was on the way, there they were on the line to get dew-bleached. She was so excited! As a teenager, I was adept at putting a cloth nappy on a baby before I even saw a disposable one.

    Have heaps of fun!

    I glanced around your site since I am a relatively new reader and I couldn't tell if you were on Ravelry or not.

    Ravlery.com is an online database of patterns that you can search through and see finished projects people have made for each pattern or changes they have made to it if they noted that. My username is iCandi if you want to friend me on there. :D

    I know you'll have tons of fun knitting for that baby!

  145. That is lovely news! May the pregnancy and delivery be easy and safe.

    And please pass on information to Sunny about the Australian Breastfeeding Association -- they run preparation courses for expectant parents. There is no more natural, healthy (or cheap!!) thing you can do for your baby than breastfeed as long as you can. I'm still breastfeeding my 5yo at bedtime, and the elder one BF till nearly 5.
