On Saturday (9th April) my sister in law gave birth to the beautiful Charlotte Faye who weighed 8 pounds 4 ounces. I hear her brother and sister are still adjusting to having a new baby in the house and are not thrilled with all the crying and noise she makes ;p. We are VERY blessed to have a large extended family with lots of cousins for Chloe to play with. It will be Christmas before we will meet this precious little one.
This years Christmas get together will be extra exciting for Chloe because she will meet Charlotte and catch up with her other 2 "mainland cousins"along with all her other cousins including a brand new cousin due not long after her brother or sister. Yep my sister in Law Anna is pregnant and due a couple of weeks after me. She is one of those pregnant women those of us who suffer morning sickness are jealous of - she doesn't get morning sickness at all (though her energy levels go down). Told you you would be jealous ;p Though I must say the morning sickness wasn't as bad for me when I had the miscarriage as it is now so I am grateful for yucky morning sickness because it is a constant reminder of the precious little one growing inside me. I am grateful for new cousins that can grow up together, play together, support and help each other learn and grow. I am especially grateful that some of Chloe's cousins are so close in age and so excited that Anna and I can share the pregnancy process together. Congratulations Anna we can't wait to have a new addition to our extended family.
