Big Sister, E

We just got word from our bro and sis that Ella is going to be a big sister . . .

to a baby SISTER!!!!! I'm going to have another niece! (This will be my 4th niece!)

What's funny about this is that Chel and I both only have brothers, so we don't even know what it's like to have a real sister. Although i know good and well it doesn't take blood to be sisters or brothers or anything of the like! But it still will be different for me as an auntie and Chel as a mommy to TWO GIRLS! Wow, this is going to take some getting use to!! But what fun it will be. (I'm absolutely giddy about it!)

So question now is, will baby girl #2 become the first female football player in OSU history? Will she wear frilly dresses and bows in her hair, or will she wear sports attire and help her daddy out on and off the field? Only time will tell! Whatever they become, I'm so excited to be a part of it. And Daddy Brad and Mommy Chel will have the best time teaching them the Sooners songs and how to yell "We're #1"!

Congrats, guys! Now there's lots of decisions to be made! (and I can't wait till we can go shopping together, Chel!!)

P.S. and for those of you who may not know, I'm not losing my marbles. The dress Ella has on above is a Chicago Bears dress, however, Brad no longer works for the Bears, but the Oklahoma Sooners, so this next baby girl at 6 months won't be wearing a Bears dress but a Sooners one! (Sooner Boomer! -- did I do it, right, chel?! lmbo!)

OH Congrats Auntie VAL! I'll go to Chel's site and congratulate her in a moment. Who knows, maybe Ella and new baby girl camp will be Sooners CHEERLEADERS!!! How adorable! It just means they get to try again for a boy! :D (and they should, they, like you and Neil, make beautiful babies!) I'm so excited for them. I have a sister and it is a wonderful thing! :D This makes me want to know what I'm having... but NO I'm NOT going to find out, no no no, not until the moment they hold the baby up and say Here's your baby, and Matt says... It's a... OH I can't wait!!! Is it really just 12 weeks and 2 days away??? HOLY CRAP!
