Junebug

One day, in the merry month of May, I was lying on my bed with Sprout, trying to get her to take a nap.  Out of the blue, she said, "I want a sister."  Then she turned and looked at me with a most earnest expression and declared, "I want my parents to make me a sister."

Being the obliging parents that we are, J and I, um, did what we could to make our girl's desire come true.  We know we made something; we just don't know (and don't choose to know) yet whether it will be a sister or a brother. We've been preparing her for eventuality number 2.

So, yes, that is what I created this week and have been creating for the past 14.  Junebug, the obvious code name for a baby conceived in June, will be joining our family end of February/beginning of March.

Congratulations! You both looks so happy and cute!

Seeing your daughter reminds me of one of my mis-steps as a young mother. I was so eager in explaining pregnancy to my 3 years old son that it ended in tears. As my son wanted to be pregnant one day and he did not believe that being a father would be as exiting as actual pregnancy.

thank you!

Ah, the wanting to be pregnant, too. Yep, Sprout does that. During our first appt with the gyno, she told the dr that she had a baby in her tummy, too. :P
