She will be a Girl

Adelaide and Steven expecting a girl.
This afternoon I was in the basement and I heard a-whooping and a-hollerin’ from upstairs. It was my wife reacting to some great news from Adelaide. I sensed what it was and it was so — our second grandchild will be a girl, expected on Valentines day. So Grandpa Rickety now has, or will have, one of each. About time we had some more girls in the family. I might mention that Adelaide smiles beautifully for every photograph whereas Steven contorts his face as much as he can at just the right time to ruin the picture. So we are really lucky to have this photograph.

  1. Wow, Congratulations grandpa. Girls are nice. Buy something pink.

  2. Thank you. I will leave the buying of pink to Jill.

  3. I’m in shock. I thought for sure it would be a boy. Good luck.

  4. So did Steven.
