me and my three sisters--kendra, amy, and shannon on a cruise in 2005.
I love my sisters--blood and in-laws.
That's why when we found out on Monday that we're having another girl, I was mostly excited for Mae. Brothers are wonderful, but who else can understand you like a sister? Who plays with you better than your sister? And when you get older, who is a better friend than a sister?
Mae can't stop talking about her baby sister. Jayson is tickled to have another girl. I'm thrilled too, and can't believe I now talk about the "the girls." I'm already trying to figure out how we're going to do their room (Mae requested pink walls).
I think little Penny/Ruby/Pearl/Baby Horsie (Mae's favorite name) is going to come at just the right time. Growing a family is so much fun.
