So, as everyone reading this probably already knows, my big sister is PREGGO!!!!! Talk about my dream come true!!! I decided this would be the perfect way to start my new blog. Since Keehln doesn't really do much on Facebook, this will also be a way for me to document the next 7 months until my sweet niece/nephew is born.
March 17: I was home (Greenville) for the weekend to take the GRE. I had just finished the 5 hour test and my brain was fried and feeling like jello when Colt and Keehln got to my mom's to eat dinner with us. They had just been to Colorado the week before and said they brought us back prizes but that we had to open them at the exact same time. Right when I opened mine and saw the tiny onesie and looked at Keehln sitting there crying, I knew and immediately started crying! After Eliza realized that it wasn't, in fact, an outfit for our dog, her and my mom just sat there stunned! It was the funniest moment, and Colt caught it all on video :)
For those of you that know me, you know that 1) I am a huge school nerd and 2) I am a huge planner. So naturally my first question was, "How am I going to miss class next semester when the baby is born?!?" Well, I still don't have an answer to that question, but there is no doubt that class will be missed and I will be at the hospital for the arrival of the new addition. I already told Keehln and Colt that I am going to be living in their guest bedroom over Thanksgiving and Christmas break and that I will happily wake up with the baby in the middle of the night!
I can't believe my sister is old enough to have kids! Seems like just yesterday she locked me in my room and cut my hair (her career started when she was young!). I came out looking like I stuck my finger in an electrical socket. Or when she drew on my face with permanent marker, and then my parents made her scrub it off. Ouch, my face was raw.
It is going to be so much fun having a baby around for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and every occassion in the future! I am so happy for sis and Colt and I promise to document her growing baby bump for the next 29 weeks!
