Girls, Girls, Girls!

Yesterday afternoon my sister, Megan, contributed to the growing harem in my family, when she gave birth to her daughter, Vivian Marie. I'm not kidding about the harem. Vivian is the seventh grandchild for my parents and the sixth girl. There's my three girls, Beth's daughter Grace, and Lucy, Megan's first born. Zachary, Beth's oldest, is the only boy. Even on Andy's side, his brother has two girls. The last hope for another boy in this family is the baby in Beth's belly right now. I have a feeling it's a boy, but I guess we'll have to wait until July. She won't find out now, like some of us want her to! I hope for Zach's sake it is a boy, otherwise family reunions are going to be one long Barbie and baby doll nightmare for that kid.

Megan called me at 3:30 am on Sunday morning to tell me her water broke. "Thanks Meg-is there a baby yet? No? I'm going back to bed." It was one of those nights when none of the girls woke me up for once, but the 3:30 am call did. Luckily, it didn't wake anyone else in the house up, so I forgive her. Actually, I was totally fine with her calling me, I was just mostly freaked out by the phone ringing at that time of night. A middle of the night phone call is not always good. At least this time it was.
Anyway- I just wanted to congratulate my little sister and Matt on the little sister they gave Lucy. Even though it does make for more girls in our family, I think having a sister is the best. I could be biased though.

Good luck juggling two Meg, and welcome to the life of complete chaos! Don't try to control it. It only makes it worse.

Just go ahead and buy a few bottles every time you go to Costco or Sam's Club or whatever. That's what I do. Then I ALWAYS have it on hand.
