beautiful boy

Mikey, I know how much you love the Beatles and immediately found this particular song to announce your firstborn.  The joy of being a father to a son has no bounds.  Your son will continue the Wind family name and he will have amazing role models in you, your brothers, you dad and numerous uncles.  He will just adore his great grandpa! Not only will both you and your son be the first grandsons, but baby will be the first great-grandson!  Just so you know, boys are all about the mama until they reach the tender age of about 10 or 11, then it's all about not the mama - that would be you, dear son.  :)
 You pondered who will be the godfather and brilliantly came up with the idea that if baby is a boy, your brother, Dan, would hold the honor; if it is a girl, then Steven would be.  Nice.  Congratulations, Dan.  Steve, you get the honor next round. Darcy was so cute when you broke the news - she just loves, loves, loves boys.

I'm glad I saved so many baby items and can't believe the day will arrive when we can pull them out once again.  It seems like yesterday that I lovingly dressed all you boys in those adorable onesies and I am sure a stream of memories will overflow in my heart once again.  Of course, I'll be hitting the stores for all the newfangled toys for baby; after all, it's a grandma's prerogative to spoil her grandchild. 
Now we move full speed ahead with baby shower arrangements.  Margarita put her finishing touch on the invitations and I'll bring them to the printer.  Thanks be that we know baby is a boy; I can begin making the baby blue blanket cake and Melissa can create the centerpieces and favors.  Stevie is the designated photographer so look out. Party time!  It won't be long before the blessed day arrives. 

a baby boy

A baby boy was created
by the hand of God above
to give the world the sweetest touch
of tenderness and love.
With the softness of a whisper,
God made a baby's skin
and then designed two trusting eyes
to put the starlight in.
With giggles from a waterfall
and breezes passing by,
God made a baby's laughter
and a tiny, sleeping sigh.
God made the world a precious gift
more dear and pure than gold,
with little toes to play with
and tiny hands to hold
then brought into the sunshine
a precious baby boy
All wrapped up in a rainbow
of wonder, hope and joy.

Congratulations, Mike and Margarita!  See you soon, baby Dillan...
