Any day now…

Any day now I might become an auntie. The expected due date is Sunday the 7th, so it’s really close. It will be my first little niece of nephew, and I’m quite excited.

Since they (my brother and his girlfriend) live in the apartment upstairs from mine I’ll be close by and get to see the baby probably every day. It’s perfect, I get to do the fun part and then hand baby back to the parents for the nasty bits!

We have a bet going in the family about which date and time the baby will arrive. The person who gets it closest gets everything. I bet on Saturday the 13th – but kind of hope that won’t be the date since it’s my birthday. Call me selfish, but I want to have my party!

I guess it’s just the waiting game now for when baby decides it’s time to come outside and greet us all.

  1. Oh, oh, oh! ‘Auntie Em’, that’s so cool! I didn’t have any nieces or nephews until I got married; now I have ummm… 4 nephews and a niece! And it’ll take me a while to get used to being ‘Auntie’ but it’s really nice 🙂 And how wonderful to have your bro so close, and I’ll bet they’ll be really grateful that they’ve got you for support AND you live underneath them. Promise to post cute pics as soon as (s)he arrives?

    • I never quite expected to be an auntie before I was a mom myself – but I guess I only have myself to blame for being such a slowpoke 😛 It’s going to be odd to be an auntie at first I think, but at the same time very nice since I really do love babies 😉

      And about them living above me, we’ve been joking about them putting the baby in a basket and lowering it down from their window when they want me to babysit *lol* (don’t worry – we won’t do that!)

      I enjoy taking photos of babies, so I suspect this blog may be overflowing with them as soon as s/he arrives!
