A New Baby in the Family – Coming Soon

My cousin Sarah is having a baby! I am so excited and happy for her! She’s having a boy and is due at the end of November. In fact her due date is almost exactly what my due date with my daughter was! Hopefully her little man comes closer to on time than my Lucille did. Seriously, Lucy..10 days..what were you doing in there.? Wouldn’t you know it, that kid still likes to sleep in.

My cousin Sarah is my stepmom, Sue’s, niece. I have known her for….O.K. time for some math, I am 33, my Dad and Sue got married when I was nine, but of course they were together before they got married…so let’s call it…holy crap…28 years? Something like that. Sue’s family always just treated me as one of the blood relatives, something that I will always be appreciative of. I’m so lucky that I get to be a part of this big family!

When I was asked if I could take some pictures at her baby shower I jumped at the chance! How could I not!

The shower was beautiful and decorated super cute with trucks and ducks. Most of Sarah’s close friends and relatives were there to share in the special day. Her husband, Matt, came by for the presents. He was most excited about the Cubs hate from the one and only Cousin Leah and Aunt Sue. He’s a Sox fan and married into a family of Cubs fan. Sorry Matt, you’re outnumbered.

Sarah looked amazing, you might even say absolutely glowing.

The amount of excitement and love in the room was abundant and we are all excited to meet Mr. S.

Look at that, one of the photographer herself got snuck in here.
