Auntie Jess of course! Twice again in fact!
My brother and his wife are expecting their first baby, a little boy already named Andrew Noah. He’s due towards the end of this month/beginning of March. Now I’m not sure when I’ll get to meet him since they emigrated to the UK in September last year, and that makes me quite sad. Also quite saddening is that they probably won’t be able to attend my wedding because they’ll have a newborn and thus won’t be able to travel. On to happier times, my sister, my other brother and I are putting together a “care package” which will include all the gifts we would have given at the baby shower. Hopefully I get a chance to go shopping soon so I can include my gift in the package.
Then my step-sister and her hubby are expecting their second baby, a little girl already named Paige Madison. She’s also due towards the end of this month/beginning of March. As it is their second baby, they organised a baby shower themselves, and also since it’s baby number two, everyone was invited for a joint shower – husbands, wives, girlfriends, boyfriends, etc. The baby shower was held a few weekends ago and I was really impressed with the gift I found – a Hello Kitty blanket (the theme of the shower), and two outfits (one for 3-6 months, and one for 6-12 months). It was a very chilled shower held at a park near Northgate with a small play area for the bigger kidlets (seesaw, slide, merry-go-round, swings, jungle gyms, etc). What made it so chilled was that the park wasn’t busy – especially considering it was a Sunday afternoon. I’m looking forward to meeting this little one soon.
I promise to post pics as soon as I have them…
