A New Family Member

Congratulations to my brother and sister-in-law. Ken called me last night to inform me that Sarah is pregnant. (not me...her. We share a name.)
So around June I'll become an aunt again. The whole time he was talking I could hear my 5 year old niece in the background joyfully telling him to tell me she was going to be a big sister. Of course she wouldn't get on the phone and tell me herself. I've been gone just long enough for her to know who I am, and yet I'm a stranger. Takes her a while to warm up to me when I come for a visit.
Anyway, I suppose I'll be even more of a stranger to the new little one. But that's OK. He/She will one day be old enough to know who I am.
So that's my news. Other than that it was an uneventful week, and the weekend is shaping up to be the same.

This is so exciting!!

Bentlee will be a great big sister.

I think that you'll be known as the cool aunt who gets to see all these different places and have neat adventures. :)

I am so excited! I want, first and foremost for it to be a healthy baby, but I would also love for Ken to have a son!!! :-) I can't wait for a new baby in the family!!!! :-)
