Expecting a Baby

Helping Grannie, 1878

A New baby is coming into our life very soon. I cannot tell you how excited I am!    This blessing will be my very first grandchild.

Mr. White and I have been buying all kinds of things over the last several months.  We bought baby clothes, crib bedding, a baby seat, and tomorrow, we will buy a new crib and mattress.  I hosted the baby shower, here at the estate, just a few days ago. (I will share pictures with you next week.)

The expectant mother is my own daughter.  We have been spending many months talking about baby care, and pregnancy.  It has been such an incredible time.   I dearly love how much she is counting on me for support, encouragement and help.  I am grateful to be a housewife so I have all the free time to help guide her through all the different phases coming in her life.

I have been waiting such a long time to finally be a grandmother.  I am just delighted and grateful!

Mrs. White

If you're going to watch the baby very often, I'd suggest getting your own car seat, sippy cups, pacifiers and wipes. My daughter loves that she doesn't have to remember to bring every single thing with her like she does to her in-laws. We also have our old high chair and a pack and play in lieu of a crib.

Congratulations!!! :D

I am a certifying doula (in PA, not VT, haha); feel free to let me know if you (or she) have any questions! I highly recommend hiring a certified doula for during the labor to support her and all of her supporters.
