Miss Kanneloni Macaroni

It's amazing what happens overnight. . .

If you think this is a surprise for you . .you are not alone.

The lil' farm hand had a bit of a surprise the morning after his sleepover at Grammie and Dampa's house too.

Naturally very agreeable in the morning. . .

we asked him if he wanted to go see Mommy and Daddy and baby sister. . .

He said .. "uh huh"

So. . .off we went to have a look.

He loved the little lass straight away.

Then he wanted a cookie.

She weighed in at seven pounds. . .fourteen ounces.

Our son Terrence is such a blessed man.

He has a beautiful . ..loving wife who happens to be a wonderful mother. .

a strapping young lad. .

and a now a wee little lass.

The Christian name on her birth certificate will start with the letters K and M.. . .

and for months we've played a guessing game....

wondering what those initals stood for.

Dampa. . came up with Kanneloni. . .(knowing it's usually spelled with a C) . . and Macaroni.

He loves his pasta. . .and in our house. . . the name stuck. .

so that is how you will know we're speaking of the lil' farmhands baby sister.

Sing with me. . ."and they call her Kanneloni. . .Kanneloni. .Macaroni. . . "

Tonight the bungalow is quiet once again. . .which is fine. . .they'll be back. . .

for now. . .we're just the two of us. . again.

It's been a very good day!

Praising God!

All for now..


  1. What a perfect day! Thank you for sharing it with us in such a sweet way! My grandson is due within the month and we have not been told his name, not even initials. We refer to him as "Rocko!"

  2. Kannelini Macaroni ... she will grow up thinking the name Dampa calls her is as beautiful as the love she receives in Dampa and Grammie's house!
    Congratulations to all !! You are blessed !

  3. welcom miss kanneloni macaroni.......i love that name ;^D.
    your lil farm hand looks so big now doesn't he? I remeber when I saw our oldest after our second was born that she had this huge head and when did that happen?
    Congratulations to the happy family. Isn't having a boy and a girl called the million dollar family? Well it is worth more than a million dollars to have healthy children regardless of the sex. Rejoicing with you.

  4. congrats to all! Any name given in love is received as a gift, hopefully KM will love her pasta origin. Katherine Marie? Katie Mae? Kelly Macaroni? Oh, just trying to figure it out.... Baby girls can melt a grown man's heart! Dampa and KM will be a wonderful combo, grandma's too..... She will be able to keep up with that brother of hers in no time.

  5. A July baby - a lifetime of sunshine on her birthday!
