My older sister, Cynthia Karabeth Ewing, Is going to be having a baby.
|Isn't she beautiful!?|
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!
