Isabella Ann Leischer

She is here and she is beautiful. It was a long night and they are all a little tired today.


Isabella Ann was born at 12:30 a.m. this morning. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and 20 inches long. That's the specs and I am out of here, headed to Appleton.

For the Birds?

I did the first picking of raspberries last night.  There wasn’t a lot of ripe ones, only about a cup full.  But I did find out why this one bird always gets upset when I go out to the garden. 


In one of the branches that overhangs my path I found this.  Now how am I going to pick for the next few weeks with this in my way?

The calendar on the refrigerator is full of predictions or I should say guesses.  We’re all trying to guess when Bumbles will be born. 


The due date is July 25.  My guess is this coming Sunday, July 12 but I don’t think its gonna happen. 


Dr. Gilby wanted to make her prediction but she had to check out the belly first.


It’s not fair!  She knows more than the rest of us!  After the examination on the living room floor with everyone looking on, she predicted July 27. 

So far there are seven girl guesses and and ten boy guesses. 


They headed back to Appleton Sunday afternoon.  They won’t be traveling back home again before Bumbles is born so we all had to give her one last belly rub and feel one more kick before they left. 

If you want to take a guess, leave it in the comments and I will write it on the calendar.  No cash prize to the winner but you do get bragging rights.
