Three Lima Babies On The Way!

Posted by Kevin on December 10 at 11:04 am

They say good news comes in threes. They couldn’t be more right! Imagine our surprise not too long ago when we found out that not one, not two, but THREE Lima Beads babies are due in the spring.

Andrew’s wife Elizabeth, Matt’s wife Deidra, and Ali are expecting little Limas on March 27th, March 30th, and April 11th respectively. And guess what? They’re all boys!

The newborns will be the first for Matt and Andrew, and of course Payton is excited about having a baby brother. So far, everything is looking good and we are all excited as can be. Stay tuned for more updates and if you have any boy name ideas, we’re all ears.

Also, if you want any beads, make sure you get them before the 3rd week of March. Things are going to get crazy around here!

    Congradulations eveyone. Nothing like having someone to talk with who is going through the same process.
    Heh, can Simone babysit? Maybe she will take payment in pearls?
    It may be the water, but I’ve seen the same pattern happen before. When I started a prior job two employees had babies only a couple of months a part and 2 years later they had sons only a month a part. I’ve noticed that if you work in a office with several women your cycles end up being real close. So familarity breads babies????
    Congrats. Day Care LB comming soon.

    Lima Beads. Planning ahead as always. I will remember to order beads BEFORE March and really appreciate the advance notice!!! LOL.

    Lynn, love the idea of posting the new babies as new additions, but don’t think we can buy them. We will just have to ooh and aah…and put them on our wish list…like wishing for grandbabies!

    Hi, Matt’s Mom! You must be so excited!

    By the way, I took my beading to babysit an 8 month old last night…didn’t get much done, but may be she will be a future beader! My advice: Enjoy your babies,even if you can’t bead as fast as you used to,because it really does go fast!

    No babies yet. Matt’s wife is due in the next week and Ali is due the second week of April. We haven’t heard from Andrew in about 24 hours, so maybe there is a baby…

    We’ll have to wait and see.
