BIG NEWS




Since we told Sydney today now I can make the grand announcement. We are expecting!! Not it is not the four-footed kind as many of you would think. Our second child is due the beginning of June.



We weren't sure how she would take the news. As there will be quite an age difference between them. It was pretty anti-climatic. At first I think she thought that we were joking with her. She kept looking at my stomach. Her first comment was "GREAT" (said very sarcastically) Steve told her she would be a babysitter she said no to that and she was not gonna change diapers. Then she said she wanted a sister. As we quickly tried to explain that was not up to us. Better than her telling us a few weeks back she wanted an older brother.



Several hours later she asked me "Mom were you serious about the baby stuff" . My reply was yes we wouldn't make something like that up. Then she restated that she was "NOT changing any diapers".



We figure there will be questions about where babies come from at some point.

I think she will make a rockin' big sister (in time anyway)!!

Congratulations!!!! That's awesome news!! Syd will get more excited as the time gets closer.. wait until it's time to pick out baby clothes and items. I'll bet by the time that baby's here, she'll be volunteering to change diapers. :)

You probably aren't even showing yet though, huh? You're what...12 weeks now? I think? Maybe 15? Anyhow, keep in touch and let me know how it's going!
