It will be two weeks tomorrow since Dallas and I arrived in Hervey Bay to await the birth of Tim and Jodie’s third baby and our newest little grandson. The baby has not joined us yet and we all wait patiently. Mother and baby are doing fine, but mother is wishing and hoping for her pregnancy to end. Most of our time has been spent with our two young grand-daughters Mackenzie and Alexis – yesterday we painted a tea-set together to fill in time.
We have accompanied expectant mum on long beach walks and yesterday even resorted to taking her yabbie pumping – alas, all to no avail. Tim cooked a hot curry in the hope for some result, but that did not work either!
Medical intervention is scheduled for tomorrow morning and we all have our fingers and toes crossed for the cry of a newborn babe. It is our last hope for seeing this little boy before we must leave Hervey Bay on Saturday morning to return southward.
All I can say is that he is following in the footsteps of all Baker males who take life at their own pace and in their own time!
