Just like Adam and Jenny, I was living far from home so they didn't have the pleasure of sharing my pregnancy on a day to day basis. Of course, the Internet was just something that no one had heard of yet....so, the only communication was via phone. And, that phone was not portable....and certainly not cellular.
While I know that a grandson is about to be born.....they didn't know the sex of the baby until the doctor exclaimed, "It's a boy!" after the birth.
But as I look as these pictures, I see the same joy on their faces as I am feeling inside in anticipation of Buddha's arrival. I have actually studied their pictures as I think about them being around the age I am now. And, so it goes....the circle of life...

Adam Keith was born on April 18, 1974 and the miracle of his birth is still with me to this day. I cannot wait for him to experience this incredible life passage with Jenny!
It does feel a little strange (and wonderful) to watch my 32 year old "baby" prepare for his own son.
Here I am at 8+ months pregnant and expecting my first child in April, 1974....
Now, 32 years later, my son and his wife are getting ready to have their first child, my grandson!
We have named him Buddha until he comes out into the world and we can give him a real name. Until then.....his spiritual, self-reflective name is "Buddha". We hope that he doesn't mind.
And, I have named myself the "Dalai Mama"....!
