The secret’s out: I’m becoming a real live auntie!

We made the trip to upstate NY 2 weeks ago (thus the lag in blogging!) to see the belly…and join in a baby shower.

The happy mommy is my sister Rahab. It was so cool to see her sporting a belly!

The queen mother opens her gifts.

Get a load of that outie!ย The baby is a girl, and her name is Madeline. This is the blanket Mimi made for her.

It was such a fun shower. My sister Sarah is on the left. She ordered an awesome cannoli cake (do you have to be a New Yorker to know what that is?) and together we all made some dee-licious food.

Mommy and Daddy-to-be.

This is my big brother, Seth, with the grand Mimi, and the little one and only Cousin-to-be.

For the first time, I’ve seen my belly smaller than hers. I’m exulting in that.


Here I am with all my sisters. From right to left is Rahab, me, Ramah, and Sarah. The real birth order is ME first, then Rahab, Ramah, and Sarah. But I gave first place to the belly…just this once. Everyone is kind of trying to stick out their belly. Me, not so much.

The setting was beautiful, away up in the hills. I feel like I have homes all over the country, but each one is special. It was good to be home in NY.

    I don’t see how it’s possible for anyone’s belly to be smaller than yours, but whatever you say. Also, your blanket is awesome and congrats the new baby. Neice’s and nephew’s are so fun.
