When I was pregnant, I remember wondering what there was in store for me. What waited just on the other side of the unfathomable experience of childbirth.

Now my little sister is pregnant. She gets to experience the cozy, calm, tredipacious, itchy waiting period we all go through during the second and especially third trimesters. Ready to have a baby, not ready to have a baby, ready to give birth but terrified of it... it all works out in the end but at the time you have NO IDEA how that's gonna work, how you'll survive, how you'll support yourself.

Right now, she and her boyfriend are living in my house. I may get to have a baby here later this year, which I like and am also worried about. Can you really baby-proof this barn? Is she really ready to bring a child into the world? Am I ready to step up if I'm needed for help, support, love?

What kind of baby will she have? Boy? Girl? Smart? Sporty? Fiesty? Precocious?

So many possibilities...  so much more to imagine about than just what it will be named.

We're all very interested in seeing what happens around here.

  2. Congratulations!! Babies are a lot of stress, worry and more stress, but they are also such a miracle.
