A nice even number...

I love my nieces and nephews. They are all so much fun!!! I have soccer players, baseball players, football players, basketball players, a volleyball player (who I just found out went UNDEFEATED - way to go KAITLYN!!!) and even one that I'm convinced is going to be a cyclist. Some have the "family resemblance". Some of them look like each other - just ask me about the story of Corbin coming to visit this past Labor day! And they are ALL fabulous! I love listen to their stories, play with them, buy them loud toys for Christmas (you're welcome "mom"!!!). It is all so great.

But there has always been something "odd". And I think I've finally figured it out. It's the quantity! Nine. That's how many. Nine. It's so close to being a nice, round, even number. You could even say that it's close to a "perfect ten".

So leave it to the youngest one to bail me out. Tracey is having a baby! She came down (with Corbin!) this past Labor Day - but she didn't have even the smallest "baby bump" that I could see.

But that's all over with now! She certainly can't hide it anymore!!! Still no word on the "boy/girl" scenario. I'm hoping for a girl myself - the boy/girl ratio is currently a little lopsided with 6 nephews and 3 nieces. I've heard that it's going to be another 3 weeks before we find out...

I can't wait! She's not due until the end of March so I guess I'll have to wait a few months. I'm so excited!!! This is going to be fun...

Awww. Thank you! We find out what it is Nov.24!! I too am hoping for a girl. Although everyone around me seems to think it's a boy!! As long as it is happy and healthy is really all that matters!! I just can't believe it's actually gonna happen this time!!! We are super excited. If I didn't have my big sis to keep me grounded I don't know what I would do!! She is my birthing coach and lord knows she knows what she's doing!!lol I will send pic of the ultrasound when we go the 24th. Take care!!
