Long awaited day.

The baby’s heart starts beating,

Not a sweeter sound!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before.

    What special timing for this post! My nephew just heard his baby’s heartbeat for the first time today!! ❤ 🙂 There really is no sweeter sound!

      How exciting! I was serious with the haiku today. I meant every word. Thanks for telling about your nephew and his coming event. May their family be blessed.

    No sweeter sound indeed. A lovely poem.


  4. This is beautiful Oneta. I remember when I got to hear our sons’ heartbeats for the first time. I did not get the snazzy ultrasounds they do now but that heartbeat was so precious.

      Did some kind doctor let you use the stethoscope? I don’t remember. I’m judging by experience of my granddaughters mostly. One has gone through the pain of hearing one and then having it stop. Much grieving.
