Baby, Baby, Baby

I am so excited this morning because my nephew Jeremy and his wife Natacha are having their first baby...today!    It is their 2nd anniversary so the the timing is perfect (although they will never be able to go away for their anniversary because they will be hosting birthday parties...oh well, I'm sure they won't mind).  The little one is coming two weeks ahead of schedule but all is well so far...maybe he is a little impatient.

My nephew Jeremy was born when I was only 10 years old so he is more like a younger brother   to me.  In fact my sister Andrea was only 17 when he was born and because she was still in high school he lived at home with all of us until she got married to Jeremy's father 3 years later.  I was so petite when I was 10 I used to climb into Jeremy's crib every night and lay down with him until he fell asleep (spoiled much?). 
 Although my parents were less than impressed when my sister got pregnant so young by the time Jeremy arrived  we were all smitten.  It probably helped that he was a little boy born into a house full of sisters. After Andrea got married to Jeremy's father Gordon they built a new house nearby and moved in.  Jeremy still came to our house every day after school and stayed until his parents picked him up after work.  

My sister Andrea will become a grandmother for the first time today......she is beyond excited.  After they were married Andrea and Gordon couldn't have any more children so Jeremy is an only child..maybe fate intervened and that teenage pregnancy wasn't an "accident".  

The "parents-to-be" on their wedding day 2 years ago today.
Update:  Little 7 pound 6 ounce Christian Richard arrived safely at 2pm.  Everyone is doing well....I'm going today to get a peek at his cuteness.
