Countdown to Lil’ G: Week 24


Your dad and I are in Maine for Easter weekend, little dude.
We can’t wait for you to enjoy and explore this great state with us.
We’ve been coming here for years, since we’ve known each other actually.
It’s where we had our first kiss, got engaged, conceived you.
All the milestones, really.

It’s your grandma’s place, meant as a summer retreat and potential retirement home down the line.
But we have the great pleasure of using it the most.
We kind of consider it our own.
(Shhh, don’t tell grandma.)
Except we don’t pay for it.
Crazy, huh??
Yeah, it’s a sweet deal.

Your grandma threatens to sell it about every other week.
But once we get you up here and she sees how much you love it, we know we’ll secure it in the family forever.
So do us a favor and be extra cute when you’re up here with your grandma.
Maybe take your first step here or say your first word or something like that.
It’s gotta be something big.

We NEED this, little man.
And you can bring it home for us.
We believe in you.

PS. Just kidding on that whole conception thing. We don’t know where your little fetal life began.
But it certainly wasn’t in grandma’s bed. That’d be too weird.

Thanks for the heads up…it will be fun watching the little guy do his part to keep “The Maine House” in the family … maybe someday he will follow in his mother’s footsteps and consider it his since he will be the grandchild who has the longest history with the place!!!

haha…that would be weird, but funny. You look great and I hope that you are feeling well. “Lil’ G” is a lucky little fella.

last time I was at the Maine house, it smelt like a campground. The couchs are nasty and smell like a lockerroom. If the house stays, it really needs a refit.
