Default Papa to be Papa one more time

My daughter Andrea called at about 6:15 this morning. Usually when the phone rings that early there is something wrong. At first I thought she was calling to talk politics
or to yell at me to stop bringing over so much of her "stuff" that is stored at my house to her new house.
Well the news was that she and Sal were expecting a baby in June. I had to drag Gram out of the shower to hear the news directly from our "baby". Well, here we go again,
bottles , diapers, and another one that needs to be trained to say "Papa, I love you best".
Unlike her sisters, Andrea's house is only about 8 minutes from my office. Oh am I going to spoil this one!! (not like I haven't already done that with the other four).
Gram is already adjusting the 2005 vacation schedule to accomadate this new addition
to our gang. I thought I would share our good news.

Thank you all for the kind words and warm thoughts. Yes it was a wonderful way to start a day. Andrea and Sal have been married for about 17 months now. Yes time does seem to fly. I do not want to wish away the winter and spring (except maybe for the winter weather) but I am excited about adding another little one to my gang.
