"What news?"

"Hallelujah, my baby birdies! It's almost here! Chirp out the news far and wide!!"

"What's almost here? That new alfalfa hay?"

"No silly! The BABY! Spread the joyful news!"

"You mean....no!....not...Belinda's baby? Is it that time already?"

"Yes! Belinda's BABY!!! It's almost here! Spread the joyful news!"

"Okay---I'm hurrying as fast as I can!"

"All I want to know is if Bo finally finished knitting that dang crrraaaazy-colored cashmere and wool baby blanket. And did she block it properly? You've got to treat good merino wool and cashmere properly, I tell you!"

Hi again, Bo. Absolutely love the photos and your captions. Especially the last one with the horse! Does this mean Belinda has gone into labor? or is she just ready? Your blanket turned out gorgeous.

Thanks, Linda! If she doesn't have the baby by sometime tomorrow, they're going to induce her Wednesday morning, beginning at 6am! (She was full term last Sunday.) She keeps having funny cramps and pains.....we're all on pins and needles here!

The blanket is beautiful. I'm sure the baby will feel very loved when wrapped in it. Keep us posted.

That sure looks like a great blanket to snuggle in, Bo. Well done!

You are so inventive in the way that you present your blog, Bo. It's always a pleasure to read ;0)

Congratulations to you all BRN - babies are a wonderful reason to rejoice! I think they are are so miraculous because even tho they were growing in their mother's uterus they are fresh from God!the freshest thing from God.

I am sorry I didn't get over here sooner because I know you were going through a rough time and I have been praying for you.

I would love to hold a new baby again! :)
