In November, my sisterfriend announced some very big news.
She was born six weeks after me, and as two only children, we've been sisters to one another throughout life. And now I get to be an "aunt."
On Super Bowl Sunday, she announced the gender. She made cute bows, so everyone could show off their guess (wear it in your hair for a girl, wear it as a bow tie for a boy). I made little cards for everyone to scratch (she added the pink or blue). And suddenly, we knew a little bit more about the newest member of our family.
"Carl." I can't wait to meet him around June 30.
