Just Call Me AUNT LOLLY!!!

Yes I am going to be an aunt!!

I blogged about it a little yesterday but today's blog is all about it!!

We found out on Friday night. My Sissy and Will were coming in town for him to attend a seminar. They walked in carrying their luggage and a basket. My Sissy hands me the basket and says "I brought you some fruit". I was thinking okay that's weird, but the strangest thing was that there was a pumpkin in the middle of the fruit. So now I am thinking that she is losing her mind. As I take the basket I see that there is a note saying "Our little Pumpkin will be here in October!!". Of course I was screaming and jumping since they have been trying for about a year!!

They wore pink and blue.

The first picture 5 weeks and 1 day.

Sissy found out a week before that she was pregnant when she went for her weekly check up at the fertility clinic. She was so excited, of course!! She went and bought a ton of pink and blue balloons and in each one she put a reason why she loved Will. Then when he came home from work he found her in Pumpkin's room with the balloons and a positive pregnancy test. She even had the video camera to capture his reaction!!

Next week on Valentine's Day they will be able to hear that sweet little heartbeat for the first time!! I have already told them I fully expect a phone call so I can hear it too!!! So it is full on baby fever over here. I have already begun shopping ... but isn't that what an Aunt does best ... spoil them rotten?!

She is 5 weeks and 5 days so right now Pumpkin is the size of an apple seed. It's sweet little heart is dividing into the four chambers and is beginning to beat!!

Oh it just makes my heart melt!!

  3. Congrats to your sis! and you of course as the future aunt!
