Finally, A Real Post

My Sister is Pregnant!

I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am. It’s weird… I love this baby so much and I feel so attached to the baby. Last week we found out, it’s a Boy! I’m SO excited about having a baby boy in the family, even though I can't buy him pink outfits and ruffled bathing suits.

I’ve had a few people ask me, “Are you okay?” “How are you handling this?” Thanks for the sympathy but… DO YOU KNOW ME? kiss, kiss ;)

Last Christmas was our first Christmas without my Grandpaw. I can’t remember ever having a Christmas that quiet… someone was missing. After all the gifts had been opened, including gifts my Grandpa had bought us, I asked Jenn if she would have a baby by next Christmas. My Christmas wish was granted!

I refer to Jenn’s baby as the ‘Golden Child.’ He will be the first baby for both families, our family and my brother-in-law’s family. The baby is going to be brilliant! His dad is a surgeon and his mom is a creative, advertising & business girl. He will be beautiful, look at his parents! I know I’m biased but can you argue with their stats?

5 Months Pregnant... you can't even tell

When Jenn told my parents my dad said, “I don’t even know what to think but I’ve wondered if I’d be a Grandfather by the time I collect social security.” HA! My parents always say, “Most people live life fast (especially at our church); we live life really slow.” The itty-bitty doctor scrubs were a gift to my brother-in-law when he finished his residency.

Daisy, the cutest dog in the world, had to get in on the fun and insisted on modeling the baby's scrubs. LOVE her!

Oh Jill... you will LOVE being an Aunt! It is the most fun. My Sis had 2 boys before she had a girl and you're right, you don't get to buy the pink and the ruffles but it's still THE BEST!

I wouldn't trade my nephews for anything!

And... could your Sis look any cuter??? Good grief - she's GLOWING!

Congratulations to your family! You will make an incredible aunt! On another topic, was thinking of Yu Mei - did you ever find out who adopted her and if she is in the U.S.? I hope you 2 see each other again - you can see from the photos how much you 2 care about each other. Looking forward to seeing photos and ideas from the baby shower, Cathy

Just checkin in - and what great news to find! So happy for your family! I can't believe she's only 5 months in that picture. Glad to see that you're back to posting - I should, but I just can't find the motivation. Take care.
