Keith's Prediction


Keith is warming up to the fact he is going to have a little sister.

Sunday my sister in law gave me some baby clothes. She has two girls, so she had lots to share. As I was sorting through them that night, Keith patted the pile of clothes and said "Baby sister's!" with no prompting from either of us.

He has begun to watch babies more closely whether they be on a cartoon or a doll or real.

During lunch today Keith rubbed my tummy and looked up at me with his huge blue eyes. He had a smudge of dirt on his nose which made his eyes look bluer and larger.

"Baby coming, Mommy. Baby coming." He told me.

And I can't help but wonder what he means by that. Does he mean today? I know she is coming soon. But could he possibly know when she will join us? After all he said it so earnestly, and little children are known to be more in tune with the spiritual things.

Keith's prediction: "Baby coming."

I guess time will tell! Twice when I was pregnant I had little kids tell me things like "you have a baby in your tummy" and this was before we had told anyone.

Have you seen that show "Bedtime stories" with Adam Sandler? If not, then basically the plot is that everything the kids say come true. So it just reminded me of that show. I love the beautiful leaf colors. Ours might be changing next month I think.

THAT would be a story, if he predicted it like that. I hope he comes today! Or maybe he knows instinctively it will be very, very soon...

Yes. He's right on. I'm so excited to see baby pictures. I miss babies.

My hubs is on his way home from work and stopping to get the tp. Thank You. I don't have to worry about it now.

I've been seeing leaves all day on everyones pictures. It's such a great time of year. He looks like he's digging for his sissy:)

I love that picture if Keith. I meant to get some of the girls but alas, the yard people came and took away all the leaves yesterday. I'll have to wait until more fall.

I was thinking about this post today when I was talking to my mom about how kids just know things. I hope he's right and your little girl comes soon!
