And baby makes three .... I mean four!

On the day Natalie was born I opened a savings account for her. There was a $25 deposit to open the account and $7.08 for the second deposit to signify her birth weight (7 pounds and 8 ounces). I get paid every other week; so on payday, I deposit $5. Now she isn't going to get rich off me; but I figure when she is 18 and I hand her the passbook, she'll have well over $2,000. The $5 isn't much; but I did that so if other little people came into our family, I would be able to do the same for them.

So with that in mind, I am announcing that Travis and Julie will have another little bundle in November (three days before my birthday)! I'm hoping for another baby girl, and I hope she'll arrive on a day the bank is open.

Mary, Congratulations on the news...GRANDCHILDREN are so wonderful, IMHO it is a gift from God to allow us to be grandparents! What a wonderful and caring idea to do the savings acct. for your grandchildren...and each dollar is surely a help for their future! Again CONGRATULATIONS and may God Bless your family!
