Tears of Joy


Today it is official ... my little sister Hilary is having a baby!

She had her first doctor appointment today and gave me the okay to share the news. I've known for a while, but it is really hitting me right now because today she saw a picture of the baby and the heartbeat. I can't stop crying.

I'm going to be an aunt for the first time! We haven't had a baby in the family for a very long time and I am so looking forward to the arrival of this child. My whole family is ecstatic about the news.

Congrats Hil and Jeff! You will be wonderful parents.


PS. The photo is Hil on her wedding day a little over a year ago.
