Thank you everyone! Momto6boys - that is too cute, he must have been adorable!
This news is really special to me for a couple of reasons. First, that this is my first grandbaby! But it's also kind of bittersweet because my Dad passed away last year so he won't get to see his first great-grandbaby, which is something he had talked about looking forward to. Also, Ryan (daddy-to-be) and his brother David, were out of my life for almost 10 years and we are just starting to really get to know each other. I missed out on so much of their younger years. My ex-husband abducted them and disappeared when they were 2 and 5 years old - I searched for just short of 10 years before I found them. Neither one of them really remembered me. It's so strange, because for me, they were frozen in time at 2 and 5. I was full of memories and they had virtually none. So anyway, I am just doubly thankful for this special gift of a grandson.
Just wanted to add something real quick. To Hara: you mentioned how Ryan should make sure that Amber is doing all she needs to do while she's pregnant. He is being so sweet - he worked a few hours of overtime just so he could buy her 6 or 7 books on being pregnant! He has no problem with her working, but he took on a second job so she could cut back on her hours (she also goes to college). He's been rubbing her feet every nite, cooking for her, making sure no one smokes around her, etc. Maybe he's going a bit overboard, but it's so cute! They are just so young and in love. Ok, sorry guys, I know this is the Chronic Pain forum so I will stop now. I'm just so happy - it makes the pain a little better.
