It’s a girl!

What a special morning. Our sweet baby is now known as Clare (middle name undecided although the kids have many, many ideas). She is healthy, growing, all on target…we couldn’t be happier. The ultrasound tech froze the picture for a long while labeling the thighs, measuring, etc. Nate & I knew our babe was a girl, but asked the kids to guess one more time. Katie was overjoyed to say the least. Michael burst into tears. Awwww….my sweet boy! He’s okay now, but he had sincerely hoped for a brother. God knows best and I’m delighted Michael will continue to hold the place of “Momma’s boy” a bit longer, and pink hairbows and cute little dresses are entering our home again. Quite possibly even better news, was the likelihood that complications wouldn’t present them self until 30 weeks or after. God is good!!!

Look at those sweet little lips and her profile. (The tech already claims the nose as mine. Funny.)

To celebrate…we went to the Dutch Monkey. It’s been open a year or more and we’ve never gone. As luck would have it, they were featured in the latest Atlanta magazine as an optimal “sweet” treat. What better reason than this morning to try it out?!

Katie & Michael shared the chocolate cinnamon twist (after Katie won the coin toss), and Michael sort of commandeered Nate’s soda. Apparently, it’s a bit like a LifeSaver mint. No thank you, but they seemed to like it. Something different anyway.

Nate and I’s yummy goodness. I had a warmed Caramel Apple Fritter and Nate enjoyed immensely the Strawberry Jelly donut…apparently, the strawberries were fresh!

I enjoyed watching (up close and personal through the viewing window) Martin, the baker, make the donuts. What a fantastic touch for this momma that likes to be in the kitchen and her daughter who aspires to be a professional baker. In fact, Katie has declared (this morning over breakfast), that she will have circular viewing windows in the Boster Family Cafe so other people can watch her bake. She’s also decided Sundays will be Chocolate day and everything she makes will include chocolate. In honor of her mom, I get Saturdays as Fruit Day at the cafe. Yummy. Bring on those fresh strawberries and peaches too!

Oh my dear sweet girl, I sincerely hope you continue to dream and we look forward to helping you make your dreams come true. We do indeed promise to come every weekend after Mass to enjoy chocolate day, and I’ll be sure to sneak over on Saturdays and get some fruit yummies of my own.

Thanks Dutch Monkey for giving our girl inspiration to dream her own dreams AND let us stand at your window spying on Mr. Martin and his donut mastery.

Sweet Grano, rest in peace. You are remembered today on your birthday with a great deal of love and affection. I’m so thankful that Nate was able to know you (even if just a bit) and know you watch lovingly upon our children from the gates and graces of heaven. Watch over our sweet Clare in utero and provide our family with the graces to live holy lives! We’ll see you when our time is here complete. I love you Friend Grano! I miss you immensely!!

    Congratulations to all of the Boster family. Baby Clare will be blessed with wonderful parents and siblings. By the way, Mikaela sounds like a good name but of course I could be partial. 🙂
