......... an Aunty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am soooo excited - my brother and SIL are expecting their first baby which will be my first 'real' niece or nephew (my friend's dd calls me Aunty Joy, but am not real aunty!!).

I found out at the end of October, but they didn't want to 'go public' till now, so I have had to keep my mouth shut (a very difficult task for me, especially over something as exciting as this!!) - and last night, they told my girls - Emi nearly cried - but then she is over-emotional just like me!!!!

Mi SIL aimed to have had her first baby by the time she was 33, and she will JUST make it as she will be 33 at the end if June, and the baby is due at the beginning!!

Gotta start looking at baby kits now!!!!

I just have to be satisfied with being a mom and enjoying all my cousins' new babies. I only have one brother & he has no desire to have any children -- says they take up too much time. How selfish is that???

Congrats! Those are wonderful news. I also love being an Auntie, have 3 nieces and 2 nephews, the youngest niece is 8 months old (just 2 months younger than Lukas) and the youngest nephew is 1 1/2 years old. That is perfect for my kids - too bad they all live in Munich...
