We Shall Call Her Emma!

Solito family

The miracle of life, it really gets you thinking and especially when you see it up close and personal. I’ve been blessed to give birth to two sons, and with the privilege of being in the delivery room for the birth of my granddaughter Gianna. Now I am getting exciting news once again, my older son, Jason and his wife are expecting a baby girl! My daughter-in-law, Danielle has had a few ultrasounds so we’ve been watching God form Baby Emma in the womb. She started out with a little brother or sister but God chose to keep this baby with him and send us Emma. We will see Emma’s twin and celebrate him/her some day too!

So we are now celebrating Emma and she is due to arrive late June! Thus far, Emma is a very healthy, cute and active baby!  Danielle say’s she is especially active when she drinks Martinelli Sparkling apple juice! Emma likes to wave to her mom, dad and big sister Ava when the tech begins picture-taking. She was also caught sucking her thumb comforting herself. I have a feeling she won’t be shy!  So many things I love about her already but I think my favorite part of her now is her little button nose!


As I was imagining her personality and staring at her picture I was amazed once again by God and his great power. How we are knitted together in our mother’s womb. How he knew us before we were formed. How we were made in the secret place…Psalm 139:13&14:

 For you formed my inward parts;

you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made,

Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

Your eyes saw my unformed body;

all the days ordained for me were written

in your book before one of them came to be.

Psalm 139:16

There is so much joy and peace in knowing God has His hand on her little life. I truly can’t wait to hear her little voice when she is calling Mimi!  And then there is my excitement for Jason and Danielle as they grow their family, and experience once again the joys of parenting, and raising two beautiful girls. I know they will love baby Emma with a powerful and protective love. And so the generation goes on!

Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts. Psalm 145: 3&4

 It’s a grandparents right to brag…feel free to leave your comments!
