We got wonderful news yesterday--our niece Emily is expecting her second beautiful baby in February! We are so excited, and so is future big sister Ella, who will be about 20 months old when the new arrival happens. (Good luck with that, John and Emily.....you have us beat in having babies close together now!)
Emily sent the news as an email from Ella, which was so cute--imagining this little 14-month-old busily typing away to friends and relatives. I especially liked this: "Mama also thinks the baby will be able to share my clothes at the rate I'm going, which I don't find very funny!"
Anyway, it will be wonderful to have a new member of the family, and something to look forward to in the drear of winter! Happy news.
