    Thanks...the strange thing about this is just yesterday my hubby was thinking about my brother and his wife having a baby. My brother and SIL have will have been married 5 1/2 years by the time the baby arrives...it will be a good thing for them...my SIL has had a lot of heartache the past 5 years. Her mother died just 12 weeks after she was married and her sister died unexpectedly about two years ago. Her Dad has remarried and doesn't hardly have anything to do with my SIL...I am really happy for them...

    And of course my parents are just ecstatic. My parents would be fine with either a boy or a girl, but I bet my Dad is secretly hoping for a boy. My Dad is an only son and my brother is an only son so Baby Boy ******** are a rarity in our family. Not sure how my 10 y/o niece would react to a girl. She has been the only granddaughter for 10 years, not sure how the "queen bee" would feel about having to "share" her title. LOL!!!

    Congrats Auntie! How exciting My girlfriend is expecting her 2nd in Sept & I think I was more excited than she was when she told me, I couldn't help it-it's just too fun having a new little one around! Especially when you can cuddle all you like then return them to mom & dad

    Best wishes to them :kiss

    I think the best thing you can give a baby is unconditional love.....(which I doubt will be a problem)....

    Material things...I know that diapers are always appreciated by the parents....you could also start a savings account for your new grandchild....write a letter addressed to your grandchild for them to open when they are 18 or so...best wishes....

    the great thing about being an aunt or uncle is that you get to give all the love, and get all the love back , but when the kid is misbehavin - its back to mom n daddles!
    woot, happy for ya!
