I just got back from visiting my sister, who is 7 months pregnant. I am so excited to be an aunt in a few months! I had a blast helping plan the baby shower, putting up decorations in the baby room, and helping her sort baby clothes.
It was great to be out with my mom, who is excited to become Grandma, and my brother-in-law’s family whose mom is excited to become “Nanna!”
I will be visiting a lot after the baby arrives, because I know how quickly babies grow up. I want to know my niece or nephew (they’re going to be surprised by sex of the baby at birth) at every age. Newborn, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 8 months, and a year. Every age has so many different joys and challenges, and I can’t wait to be a part of each of them!
