Happy News!!!!




I found out last week that my little sister, E, is going to have a baby!  I am super duper excited!  I knew she and her husband were trying (they’ve only been married since January), but it still happened really quick.  I love babies and little kiddies, and since my boys are 12 and 8, I don’t get much baby-time.  Although I’m not sure I want anymore of my own, I would be perfectly happy to be surrounded by babies that belong to other people, at least sometimes. 

I have nephews and a niece who is almost 4, but I never get to see them since they live in Texas.  The baby is due at the end of April, so she will be spared being pregnant in the summer time.  I am already worried about what it’s going to be like when it’s icy out.  Worry, worry, worry!  Even my mother seems excited.  (If you knew her, you’d know this is a big deal).  E reminded me that my son is going to be the same age she was when he was born.  Pretty cool.  Also, since the boys won’t get to spend much time with their new sister when she’s small, they will have a little cousin to help out with and have the experience, and they are excited.  E has already asked me if we could try to work my schedule next fall so that I could keep the baby if she decides to go back to work.  What an honor, huh?  Either that, or cheap labor…

    Awwww super news! I’m always thrilled about *other people* having babies, I’m so far beyond the baby thing myself though ;o)

    That’s one way to get a baby to play with. 🙂 I bet the J’s are going to go nuts over it!

    Penelope – Me, too! I ain’t having any more myself for sure!

    Honey – Exactly, and I don’t even have to go through childbirth again. SCORE!
