Preparations

I am excitedly preparing for a new baby in the family. My SIL Laura is pregnant!!! The baby is due in June and I'm guessing it's a boy. I am almost as excited as I would be if it were me having the baby. Laura and I have known each other since elementary school . She has been an amazing and constant support to us and I am looking forward to returning the favour. In all honesty I'm hoping she gets tired of the baby and gives it to me but apparently she's pretty committed :-P
I learned the joys of aunt hood last year when my niece Liliane was born. At the same time I learned the anguish of long distance aunt hood :-( I wish I could convince Theresa and Stephane to move here but apparently they're pretty committed to their life out in Montreal! What's a girl gotta do to get a baby to obsess over???

Congrats on the new baby to be in your family! I liked to have rolled when I read the part about you hoping she gets tired of the baby and gives it to you!

I love when other people have babies -- then I get to hold and play and do all the good stuff and then give them back when they poop!

Wait! Don't you already have 5 kids to obsess over? If you are sick of them you can send some to me!!!!
