This is my new soon-to-be niece or nephew. I am thrilled on so many levels. I can’t wait to hold a baby again. To feel the soft curve of a newborn back and smell the warm sweet smell of baby. This is the first for my little sis and her lovely husband. I can’t wait for my children to have a baby cousin to cuddle and spoil. I can’t wait to see my sister as a mom and share the sisterhood of motherhood with her.
This new life is barely the size of a small banana. Still snug and warm protected inside my sister’s belly. Yet it evokes such joy and love from all of us who wait excitedly to welcome this new person into our family.
