Big News

Betcha thought the news had to do with adding to our family....NOPE! (Elise wouldn't mind but no more babies happenin' here!)

But Baby Isaiah is going to be a big brother (and Elise has another chance of getting a girl cousin closer to her age)!

Keep in mind that my brother is 10 years younger than me (but has just as much grey hair) so we get to enjoy the babies without actually having them ourselves these days. :)

So, Eric calls me the other night. To be fair, they are in the middle of a stressful house move and I'd asked him a few weeks ago (just joking!) if Merry was pregnant trying to point out that it could be worse....they could be going through the stress and physical exhaustion of a move while being pregnant. (He felt bad about lying to me!)

Then today, my sister and I are e-mailing back and forth. I ask her if she talked with Eric last night. Her response "No, what's up?" What the heck?!? I'm KNOWN as being the worst secret keeper in the family. Why did he tell me but not make ALL OF THE FAMILY CALLS? I had to stop e-mailing her and I couldn't call her all day! I finally called Eric on my way home to tell him he had tonight to tell her because I couldn't keep it a secret any longer!

CONGRATULATIONS! By the way, Elise has already put in the REPEATED request for a girl cousin (good thing Isaiah is pretty darn cute otherwise she'd still be ticked at you for not giving her a girl cousin last time).
Frankly, she's tired of being in a "boy trap."

Congratulations!!! I'm sure that you're glad the cat is finally out of the bag.

Here's hoping that Elise gets a girl cousin!
