Good News Friday

Alas, just when I thought my younger brother and sister would never reproduce (with their respective spouses, not with each other mind you), my wittle-baby sister anounces that she is pregnant! And, somehow, she kept it a secret for 13 weeks (I, on the otherhand, have to tell people the second I find out). Now she's 15 weeks along and doing well.

Here are all of us siblings this summer at my mom's birthday party, little did we know she was expecting.

We can't wait for the new little one!

And I'm also happy because I figured once my sister or sister-in-law got pregnant I would have this need to "share in the experience" and have another baby (especially after my sadness due to weaning Pedro). But, I just feel happy that I'm not the one suffering from morning sickness or gaining weight! I can cheer from the sidelines and I am ok with that. I'm even ok with handing over my maternity clothes (giving away the baby clothes could be a totally different story).

So, it's all good.

Have a great weekend!

(PS: Guapo hates the surprised cat. What do you think?)

That picture cracks me up!

It is good that you are feeling at peace with your decision. I hope that I am able to really know that I am done when I am done having kiddos.

I have to admit the cat gave me a start when the page opened. :)
I also thought you were leading up to a baby announcement of your own. :)
Congrats to your sis!

How did I not know you had a little sister?

That's great news! It's fun to be an auntie.

I had absolutely no qualms about giving away/throwing out baby stuff after #4. I kept telling myself (and others) it didn't necessarily mean I was done. Just done "for now." :-)

I love the colors you have now. The cat? Very cute, and different from what you see on most blogs.

Freaks me out.... the cat that is.

Awwww...a good-news family moment! That is wonderful, for your sis and your whole family.

I like the cat BECAUSE it's different and unexpected. Maybe Guapo would like a calmer, peaceful cat better?

I know how you feel about being sad weaning. Its hard to aknowledge that your "baby" is really no longer a little baby. I would have held out til Lulu was 2 but JW insisted that it was becoming "a little much."
Congrats to your sis!

YAY for babies!

I love the cat. The cat says to me "This blog takes cats seriously" or "Kitty can see you commenting" or "Woah, what happened to your hair?"
