Freedom of SPEECH!!

I am THRILLED to finally get to share what I have been so excited about!
My youngest daughter and her husband are expecting!!!!

She has always been an over achiever - she started college at 15 and was editor in chief of a luxury magazine at 22 and has done more in her short 26 years of life than I ever thought about doing!
Of COURSE she would do pregnancy in a BIG way!!

You can read all about it on her blog: Texas Tales/Blessed With FOUR!!!

NOW you know what my exciting plans for 2012 are!!

Sewing preemie layettes.......

....and baby clothes.....

...and MORE baby clothes!!

As I recall, a baby goes through about four little outfits or gowns a day

Times that by FOUR and it is SIXTEEN little gowns or shirts per day!

I know you can't tell - but I am SO excited!!

The camper will be our home away from home this summer!
Since Louis Dean lived in it for four years after his wife died.......
we have a lot to clean out, repair and spruce up!
With multiple births you do not have the whole 40 weeks to prepare.
We need to get it ready to roll by late spring for sure!

SO! THIS is what I have been wanting to tell everyone!!

I think there is a wonderful ring to
'The Bell Quad Squad!'
Don't you???

Congratulations times 4!!!! Wow! I can't imagine having 4 babies all at once. I know you will be the best grandmother helping her out and keeping them cute in all their homemade outfits. That is so exciting! I hope your daughter has a very healthy pregnancy and all goes well. Can't wait to see them when they get here!

What news!!!!!!

No wonder you were bursting, to tell it. :-)

Congratulation to the happy Parents To Be.

(Mmmmm, will they have live-in help, I hope?)

And hooray for getting your camper all spruced up. To use in the Spring. I've never even owned a camper, so have no idea of them. Other than seeing them, when visiting. :-)

The Bell quad Squad. I love it. I can't imagine 4 at once but if anyone can do it Amber can. Things will never be dull from here on.

Oh my goodness! I can't even imagine. I still remember the day our kids came to tell us there was a Baby A...and a Baby B. They will be needing your help...for sure! How exciting for you all.

I read your daughter's blog. What an adventure they are on. Wishing them many blessings.
