All I can think of is: A Baby

Seriously.a new baby 1

Pretty soon I am going to get kicked out!

They are VERY strict over there

at ABC Wednesday…

My sister, Allison, is having a baby.

WHAT?

You know that her name is NOT Allison!

Alright, Alright!

I just thought I would try to sneak another A

into this post!a new baby

Let me tell you something about Betsy.

We are VERY different people.

Like so different,

sometimes I think I was adopted :)

but then I look at my Daddy

and see myself,

so I know that can not be so.

But anyway,

this beautiful sister of mine

does not like girls so much.

When she found out she was having a girl

she cried for a while (like a week or so)

and then she started getting excited!a new baby 2

And pretty soon

we will welcome her baby girl into our family.

And her name will be

Amy.

Ok. Ok. This is getting ridiculous!

No more A’s!

Her name is going to be Brooke.

For real!a new baby 4

Not an A, but a B!

We can’t wait!

Brooke will be joining

Ben and Levi.

a new baby 3 Levi is ESPECIALLY excited.

abc 7 clownIs your family welcoming any new babies

any time soon?

LOL!
No. No we're not. But that is a BEAUTIFUL bitty bump! And mom's wearing it well!

angie said...

How very, very, exciting. I have 2 sil's that are expecting right now. One boy. One girl. :)

Sylvia K said...

No, no babies here, but couldn't believe her baby is due so soon! By the time I was four months pregnant, people were asking me how soon would I deliver. I had to wear BIG mumus for the last five months! You couldn't tell I was pregnant from behind because I was the same size I'd always been, but then I would turn around and knock lamps off the table -- same way with all four! I'm holding good thoughts for your sister and for all of you. Know it will be a great day!
Have a lovely evening!

Sylvia

Michelle said...

Good luck to your sister and welcome her to the world of tutu's and barbies. :)

Kristina P. said...

Congrats to your sister!

My SIL just had a little baby girl, Everly.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Great bump photo. I also love the last shot of the boys. Levi does look excited.

Carolyn Ford said...

What a wonderful family! And, I just found out that I will be a grandmother again (2nd time). We are over the moon with excitement!

Sarah @ When two becomes three... said...

Betsy is so beautiful all preggered up.

It's YOUR turn next.
I know Gary is gonna cave.

No babies expected in the family but I have loads of friends who are going to be turning into first time mommies. Exciting times!

Chronicles Of A Mommy said...

So exciting! We JUST welcomed our new niece, Delaney, on Friday. Then I got some sweet snuggles in yesterday and they were DIVINE! Sweet teeny tiny baby snuggles. Nothing better.

Ocean Girl said...

Happiness.

My sister is expecting, she does not know yet what gender but praying for a girl.

Annie said...

Beautiful pictures.

No new babies in our family...if there are, then someone has some major explaining to do!!!!!

Kimmy said...

How exciting!!! Sometimes I want another baby also.

Mighty M said...

So exciting! She is one beautiful mama!

mimbles said...

Congrats to your sister :-)

My sister's daughter (3rd kid) is 4 weeks old, I think she may well be the last baby for our extended family until the next generation start producing!

Lori said...

Congrats on the coming baby girl to your family. Great pictures. No new babies coming to our family although my daughter and her husband are trying. XX

Sharon said...

Not yet, but we've been working on it!

BIG congrats to your sister. She is a beautiful mommy!

He & Me + 3 said...

No babies here...but lots of my bloggy friends are expecting and it makes me want maybe just one more:) Cute pictures.

Muthering Heights said...

Awww, new babies are so exciting!!!

Kelly said...

No babies on the way, but we do have a sweet little girl who'll be 3 shortly and she's amazing. Your sister will be smitten before she knows it.

Cara and Jenn said...

She is the cutest. We have great grand baby #21 (a girl) arriving in about 9 nine weeks..(Mine is great grand baby number 1 also a girl God does that make me old??)

How exciting for your family!! Your sister is just glowing....and beautiful!! It looks like Brooke is going to wonderful big brothers looking out for her:)

Well.....I hope there is a baby coming my way in the next few months.....we have only been waiting 4+ years!!

Just a little reminder.....I know you said you wanted to play along.....tomorrow is Black and White Wednesday and I would love to have you play along:) Hope you will post or at the very least stop by!

xo,

Lisa

Pam D said...

Wonderfully sweet pictures and post! How fun... that little girl will be spoiled to the max and protected like the princess that she is (well, will be...). My side of the family got a new baby last June (my great-nephew Logan, in my latest IHF post). And my husband's brother will become a grandpa later this year when his oldest son and wife have THEIR first child... what fun! My boy... who was much younger than all of his cousins, will no longer be "the baby" on either side of the family. About time... he turns 10 next month! Oh the babies.. I just love 'em....

Msslaydbug said...

She looks wonderful and the photos are fantastic - great job !!

Lolli said...

No babies for my family any time soon....but hopefully I'll have a pg friend soon!

Happy said...

She looks terrific! How exciting for your family!

Unknown Mami said...

Yup, I think you should have one too!

Alicia said...

She will have so much with her little girl!!!

And how funny, one of my sons has that same blue striped sweater Levi is wearing!!

BoufMom9 said...

Oh how lovely! What a beautiful belly and a beautiful family!

Genny said...

How exciting! Seems like you have a beautiful family. Love all the photos. :)

Erin said...

I didn't want a girl either, and would have cried if I had one too!

But I do love the name Brooke!

photowannabe said...

You are so funny. I love the way you made an A post out of the expected niece. I love your photography and don't know why you haven't won any awards either. I would have given you 52 (one for each week).

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

I can't believe she cried! I was the opposite. I cried when I found out that I was having boy #3 because I wanted a girl so badly. I think I only cried because I knew it meant that I would probably one day try for baby #4. Still on the fence....

Congrats to Betsy :D

Angela @ Nine More Months said...

Those two boys look ecstatic! Haha. we are not expecting a baby any time soon, but I am hoping for a new addition by the end of 2011.

My WW Post! Have a great day. :)

Spiderdama said...

Great post and picture for A:-) I have a boy with the name Levi too:-)
Have a nice day!

Reader Wil said...

No babies in my family either. You are ready for the next letter: B !
Thanks for your kind comment.

Frau said...

Congrats to your sister...no babies in my family any time soon! It will be nice to have a girl around to soften all those boys!

Dot O said...

Congratulation on being an aunt again! Baby bumps are so sweet and your sister's is no exception.

YES, we are awaiting three new babies in our family this year. My nephew and his wife are expecting their first in June.

My hubby's niece and her husband are due 2/22/10 and that same niece's brother and his wife are expecting their first in June.

It'll be a hopping year around here!!!

Roger Owen Green said...

No, we had our baby almost 6 years ago. We are DONE!

As a new part of the ABC Wednesday team, I thank you.

blueviolet said...

I love baby bellies!!! And she's gonna love having a girl!

Nurse Nancy said...

I would love it but a bit too old for that.....I will be enjoying my one.

April said...

Girls are so much fun...AND challenging, too! Trust me, I speak from experience! ;) Congrats to your sister!!!

American in Norway said...

No babies around here...regardless of what Eva tells everyone...LOL

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I do have a family member who is pregnant-but I am sworn to sececy-however that is spellled...
Congrats to your sister!
...And I look like my dad, too! My sister and I look NOTHING alike!

Mental P Mama said...

LOL! No more babies here;) But I am an expert at living vicariously! Yay Baby Brooke!

Run DMT said...

YAY for "Alison"! Girls are WONDERFUL! And with two older brothers, that little princess won't stand a chance! She'll be copying her big brothers and playing all the things they love just to be like her big brothers. Little girls can be made of sugar and spice and some snails and puppy dog tails too. That's why girls rule. We can have the best of both worlds and hang with the boys too. ;-)

I'm expecting #3 too. We'll find out what I'm having in March. If it's a boy, maybe Betsy and I can swap. LOL j/k

Mrsbear said...

Congrats to your sister. I think our family is done with babies, but I keep telling my sister to try for the boy. She has two girls. You should see the glare I get. ;)

jen@odbt said...

Maggie May said...

Nuts in May

Jenny said...

Congrats to your sister :) My niece is having a baby soon and I am hoping it helps with the fact I am depressed that my son is no longer one :(

Lisa said...

NO! No new babies in this house...but our arms are open.

I cried each time I found out I was pregnant...It is funny you want it so bad and then you think "Yicks! What have I done!!" Then you get your prize and you thank God.

Congratulations to your sister.
