Peak preggers pic! Plus GRAND Social No. 324 link party for grandparents

Peak preggers pic!

James had his last regular season football game on Saturday and when Brianna came over before we all headed to the game—one determining whether James and his teammates make the league playoffs—I asked Brianna to pose for a final pre-baby pic.

With induction scheduled for Thursday, this is surely the peak of pregnancy for my girl, the final photo before baby arrives.


Yep, she’s ready! We all are ready to meet the little guy, whose name shall be confirmed once he’s born (Brianna and Patrick have chosen two adorable monikers, but which will he look like is the question).

As for the football game? Three cheers for James and his fellow Raptors, who have made the playoffs in a pretty challenging league!


Thankfully the Raptors have a bye week this coming weekend—a huge relief for mega-dedicated football mom Brianna who is determined to make it to every single game… regardless of baby status!

Leaving the real question: Will Brianna truly take her newborn to a playoff game?

Or… will Gramma have a babysitting gig far sooner than previously anticipated?

GRAND Social No. 324 link party for grandparents

Thank you for joining this week’s GRAND Social link party just for grandparents! Enjoy!

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.

  • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.

  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.

  • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)

  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).

  • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. 

  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment, even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
