No News

Daughter Victoria is doing fine.  Her last day of teaching was Friday, baby due date was Saturday.  No baby yet, but the nursery is ready and she has some free time to enjoy before the little one arrives. :)

I do have some pictures of fledgling sparrows in the backyard:

The fledgling sparrows look bigger in size than the parent from that angle.

I can feel the warmth of motherhood.

And there will be good news very soon.

Perfect example of what life is about!

Cute, the goldfinches hatched just before we left for LA, I hope they will still be around when we get back.
Your Grandma & aunts were one to two weeks late with all their babies, maybe Victoria takes after that side of the family. If there were a pool, I'd pick Friday.

Hi Diane;) I pray for your daughter's safe delivery of her baby. We had some excitement last Friday when our fifth grandchild arrived very early and while his mum was MILES away from her normal gynae and clinic. I posted about it, if you wish to see it. I love the baby sparrows. I snapped a dad sparrow feeding a baby today.

Hi, Thank you all for your positive thoughts and wishes. Victoria's whole pregnancy has gone very well, so I imagine the delivery will be routine also. I just wonder WHEN it will be. :)
