GIRL!!!! We get another girl!! Little sister is on her way!  We all couldn’t be happier.  

For me, having a younger sister has been one of life’s greatest blessings.  The fact that Emma gets to grow up having (hopefully!) the same wonderful experience makes me so happy for her.  There is really no relationship quite like the one between sisters.  We were best buddies growing up and still are today.  I have the best memories of our adventures in childhood taking on the world in our matching Wonder Woman Underoos and playing endlessly with our Sea Wees.  Does anyone remember those?  They were little bath time mermaids from the 80’s with matching lily pads for them to ride in.   We loved making up our own Barbie episodes (I made her be Skipper, I of course, was Barbie), choreographing dance routines to Duran Duran, and roller skating in the garage to the Xanadu soundtrack. Through the years she always put up with me being the bossy older sister. Take a guess who was the teacher when we played school or the head choreographer of our dance troupe?? Bless her heart.  It is going to be so fun for me to watch my girls grow up together.  The thought of it really brings me a lot of joy.  

Speaking of my sister, she is also pregnant with her first baby, due 3 weeks after me! I still can’t believe I got quite so lucky. The cousins are going to be like twins.   I will never forget the morning she called to tell me. It was around 7:37am, and she never calls me that early. My heart almost jumped out of my chest, because I was hoping more than anything that she was pregnant.  And yep, she yelled, “it’s positive!!!!” My family is going to have a crazy, fun summer with two new babies joining us.

Other than that, I am feeling really great. My belly is starting to pop out more each day, and I remember now why I loved the second trimester so much. The best part about experiencing pregnancy again is that I KNOW to appreciate this time before the uncomfortable third trimester hits.  My very absolute favorite part of pregnancy is the KICKS.   I started feeling them for the first time last week, and it is just as amazing as the first time around.  It makes it SO REAL.  Not to sound like Pollyanna, because, just ask my husband, I have done my fair share of complaining, but for right now I am enjoying these blissful couple months while it lasts!  I guarantee my blogs as it get closer won’t be quite so perky.   Thanks for letting me share my news!

    Yay!! How exciting!! I’m sure the girls will be the best of friends. I have two boys and I just love watching them play together. Sure, they like playing with me but they have a special bond and it’s so cute to see them looking out for each other, even at this young age. Congrats!!
