Just Call Me AUNTIE!

Woo-hoo, yippie, I'm so extremely excited that my sister and brother-in-law, David, will be welcoming their first baby this October! Jake, Ryan and I are so excited. Ryan can already say "baby" and the we occasionally get an "Auntie" out of him. A few months back he said "Cuncle" but not too often...we're working on it!

A little note for Michelle and David (we hope you're reading):

Congratulations on the pending arrival of your little one! We know it's been a rough start (sickness) but we're sure that is soon to be behind you and then you can start focusing on the fun baby stuff like decorating the room, choosing furniture, bedding, agreeing on a name, registering at the baby stores and planning for the big arrival day! Oh, and there is also the uncomfortable sleeping because your belly is so big you can't lay still for even an hour, occasional swelling of your ankles, weekly Dr. appointments, answering to strangers a hundred-or-so times that your having a "boy/girl" and that you still have (fill in the blank) days left before your due date! Of course it is all worth it in the end when you get to bring the little bundle of joy home (and I owe you the first night home - I'll care for the little one while you get a few hours of uninterrupted sleep)!

We love you guys and are excited to meet our niece or nephew in 6 1/2 short months!

Gee, so much to look forward to, huh? :)

Thanks for the nice note, and we just might take you up on the babysitting. Although I have a feeling it'll be difficult for you to peel David away from the baby..!
