Congratulation! (?)

Andy Dollahite said...

congrats!

DJP said...

Yep, we got the happy news from our DAOD and BSIL just this weekend. We're still grinning!

DJP said...

I also could have said

* Providence Cookie

or

* Blessing Cookie

...but "Calvin Cookie" just had a ring to it.

:^D

Layman Harry said...

Congratulations.

You'll have to squeeze another line into your logo, or displace the cats.

Becky, slave of Christ said...

Very sweet, Dan. Congratulations all around!

Kim said...

Oh, congratulations, Dan and Valerie! How wonderful!

DJP said...

Thanks; I'll share all your congrats with our dearly-loved Rachael and Kermit.

It was already being a happy weekend, and that just crowned it.

JackW said...

I got the same type of news just last week from my #1son. Due date is in April.

Grand news, but ...

... maybe you're ready to be a grandpa?

DJP said...

I'm very much looking forward to li'l Baby Allen.

SolaMommy said...

Congratulations, Dan!!! :-D

rebecca said...

What good news and what fun!

I'm a tiny bit jealous. Okay, I'm a more than a tiny bit jealous.

Everyday Mommy© said...

Awwww...congratulations! What will you be called?

DJP said...

Oh, do you mean "Granddad" or "Grandpa" or "Pop" or...?

Hunh. Haven't discussed that.

Complicated!

Paula said...

The Calvin Cookies never lie! Wait a minute buddy...what're ya trying to pull here?.... hmmm...will have to think about that one for a few...my sources say...ask again later...

Congrats to all though! What a happy occasion!

Everyday Mommy© said...

Yes, pops or papa or (as my son calls my dad) BOP!

DJP said...

That's a good point. There will be (A) what we pick, and (B) how the li'l tadpole says it.

Everyday Mommy© said...

Yes, and names like that have a way of sticking.

Congratulations again!

Stefan said...

Congratulations, Dan.

NoLongerBlind said...

Congratulations, Grandpa Dan!

Rabbit said...

Oh, joy, joy, joy!! Congratulations to all of you!

Is Rachael feeling well?

Paula said...

DJP said, "That's a good point. There will be (A) what we pick, and (B) how the li'l tadpole says it."

er...you might want to be a little more proactive than that. My son couldn't say "grandma" correctly, so my mom ended up with "Bubba" It stuck and 18 years later that's still her name!

DJP said...

Not so much!

(c:

She and Valerie were comparing notes on "If you're just nauseated, it means ____; if you throw up, it means ____" (i.e. boy or girl).

Then there are the particular food-demands of each child. This one put in an order for a nice juicy pickle.

My Jonathan loved pepperoni pizza — like, every night! Josiah loved cheesecake.

Chris Anderson said...

Sweet. Very happy for you, Dan. :)

Rabbit said...

She and Valerie were comparing notes on "If you're just nauseated, it means ____; if you throw up, it means ____" (i.e. boy or girl).

For me, first blank was girl, second blank was boy. For both, things remarkably improved after about week 15-16. Praying for her, as I'm sure many of us will!

CR said...

Congrats.

The Squirrel said...

GrammaMack said...

Welcome to the wonderful world of grandparenting! I'm rejoicing with you!

Daryl said...

So...are you going to be a grandpa or a grandma?


Congratulations!!!!

DJP said...

Well, we don't know yet, because it's only....







Hey, wait a minute!

Mike Riccardi said...

Wonderful news, brother. Glory to God!

Barbara said...

Awesome!

Rachael Starke said...

Oh. How. Wonderful!!!!!

And I'm with Rabbit on the symptoms diagnosis. Three rounds of all-day ickiness for three solid months, but no actual technicolor yawning; three girls.

Susan said...

1. Congrats to you, Mr. and Mrs. Phillips--you're moving on up!! :D (Congrats to the younger Mr. and Mrs. Allen, too!) May you spoil the kid rotten and make his/her mom jealous (if that were possible)!!

2. She and Valerie were comparing notes on "If you're just nauseated, it means ____; if you throw up, it means ____" (i.e. boy or girl).

I have no personal experience as a mother, but I can tell you that I made my mom much more than just nauseated when I came into being. Rabbit's right about week 15/16 being the turning point, though. Hang in there, Mrs. Allen! (If the doctor permits, try some weak tea. It helps to relieve nausea.)

Susan said...

LOL, Rachael. Got it the second time around reading it. :)

Melissa said...

Undoubtedly you will be spectacular grandparents.

Mark Patton said...

Gilbert said...

Congratulations! He'll love pizza, Calvin (and most importantly) learn to fear and love the Lord right out of the box! :-)

Michelle said...

Congratulations, rejoicing with you! Our God is good.

I'm already looking forward to our first grandchild and our oldest child is only 13!

Rita Martinez said...

Awwwww congrats Mr. Phillips!!!!!!! :)

Sir Aaron said...

That's awesome. You'll make such an great grandfather too!

DJP said...

"Great-grandfather"! Not so fast! I'm still young!


ish

Sir Aaron said...

yeah, well I meant great as in very good, but I'm sure you'll make an excellent great grandfather too.

And yes, I'm sure you still think you're young. We men suffer from delusions on that front.

Desia said...

Congratulations! Being a grandparent is just wonderful.
