Aunt Again

As you are reading this post I have landed safely in Geneva and hopefully I am joyously celebrating by baggage claim with my in-laws. Brother, sister, mother, and father in-law to be exact. Until I have a chance to get to a computer and share the love i'm going to spread a different kind of love right now.

An anouncement:

My older sister, Cynthia Karabeth Ewing, Is going to be having a baby.
Isn't she beautiful!?
I'm so excited for my next little niece to be here December 1st. I'm guessing she is going to have curly red hair and be drop-dead-gorgeous. What do you think?

You see, this baby is extra special because, not only is it MY sister having the baby, but also, I get a front-row-seat for all the action. No, I'm not going to be delivering the baby, but once again Josh and I find ourselves housing a pregnant woman about to give birth and we get to be among the first ones at the hospital when she goes into labor. This whole process is really scary for my sister right now, but since i've had a front row seat for one of these before I'm confident she is going to do great.

My older sister is one of the toughest people I've ever met. She has been living with us since June of this year, and I don't think i've heard her complain once about any symptom of pregnancy (except for maybe not fitting into her normal clothes). All while starting residency and working upwards of 80 hours a week. So amazing! She has even had delirious thoughts of making Thanksgiving dinner for my family at 40 weeks pregnant. HA!

I've been so thankful for this time with my sister the last few months. We realized before she moved in that we hadn't lived in the same city for 8 years! (she left for college when I was 17) I was nervous about living with her at first because we used to fight like Kats (ha) and dogs. Since moving in I've come to  learn so much about her and see what an awesome person she has become. Not only is she stunningly beautiful, but she is super smart (in residency to become a family practice doc), an amazing cook (proof is in my ever expanding waist line that needs to get in check), and really fun to be around!

I will miss her while we are in France. (it all comes full circle to France. Are you surprised?)

I'm going to try and post while over seas, but i'm not sure how much access I will have to a computer. We will see!

Au revoir!


  1. Her pregnant belly is so cute! I am very excited for you all to have a new little one around! Has she picked out names yet?

  2. Congrats on being an aunt again! I love that relationship :) and ... could I possibly be any more jealous of the hair you girls seem to share? Gorgeous!

  3. I've seen these pictures before (one is now my desktop), but I am amazed again. She. Is. So. Beautiful.

    I am so thankful that you will be close - because we will be so far. Hopefully we will be able to hustle down there when the time comes and make it before the little one arrives.

    Cynthia has always been strong. I admire her greatly.

    And, just on a last note... I don't remember you guys fighting. Weird.

    Love you both. Have such a rich time in France.

  4. I am so looking forward to coming home to this little new one and to my wonderful sisters.

    I'm making the one that's got the teal gate in the back my desktop. Good idea, ma.
