Grace was so excited about this and couldn’t sleep.
Others were excited, too… or perhaps nervous would be a better description.
Kristy: “Do you think we’ll be good grandparents? Are we too young, too inexperienced?”
Nate: “Relax, honey. You’re the sexiest grandmother in the entire city. There is no other competition for that title in Riverview as far as I can tell.”
“You forgot childishly youthful,” said Kristy with a smile as she took Nate’s hand and led him outside.
Grace took yet another nap…
… and Justin headed out to join her when she came hurrying past him (well, hurrying as fast as a pregnant woman can hurry) saying “Out of my way, pregnant lady has got to go!”
Grace didn’t get far when other urges took over.
Arriving at the hospital and seeing his wife calmly walk past those freaking out over her upcoming delivery, made Justin feel like apologizing for some reason.
Grace seems a little sad or maybe she’s simply concerned that Justin and Nate will be disappointed that they’re outnumbered yet again.
Arriving home, she voices her concerns to Kristy who quickly lets her know that gender isn’t important. What is important is the life they lead and the friendships they make.
Kristy: “So, what did you name her? Jacqueline or Jacki? Some variation of Jake?”
Grace laughs. “No, her name is Summer. We didn’t have a girl’s name picked out and well… she was born in the summertime.”
Kristy didn’t waste any time spreading the good news.
Welcome, little one. You are surrounded by love in this house!
