I'm an Aunt...again!

So, many of you who have been following my blogs and posts know that my oldest sister, Melissa and her husband, David were preggers.  Her due date is June 13 and they opted to not find out the sex of the baby. Aside from really wanting a healthy baby, Melissa wanted a little girl - again, the health of the baby was the upmost priority.  It was fun all nine months long not knowing the sex and just thinking about what it would be like if it were a boy or if it were a girl...it's a really LONG story and it's nothing inappropriate at all, just too long to type out, but we starting affectionately referring to the little babe as "Ho".
I really wanted Ho to come this past weekend so that I could get down to Louisville to meet "it".  Unfortunately, little Ho did not come, but I decided to spur on "its" arrival by working on "its" bedding.  If you remember, I made Ho's crib skirt and this past Friday I made "its" bumpers:

Let me tell you, working on little Ho's bedding worked like a charm...my sister's water broke on Sunday morning and she headed to the hospital on Sunday night.  By yesterday morning she was on the roller coaster that is known as labor - dilating, then stopping, dilating, then stopping.  After a loooong day yesterday she finally had little Ho.  And I'm pleased to announce that "its" a beautiful, healthy baby BOY! :)
(sorry for the blurriness - these were taken on my sister's phone)
Here's little Ho looking like my dad (or Pop)

And there he is again - all 7 pounds, 14 ounces of him!

For now, Little Ho is still Little Ho because no name has been decided upon.  Needless to say my mom (Grandmama) and dad (Pop) are tickled pink.  My mom always wanted a son and God blessed her with 3 girls...you never second guess the plan of our Maker, He knows what's best, and I know that this little guy is going to be a huge blessing to our family!  Little Baby Boy Ho, Uncle Stephen and Aunt Kari love you and we can't wait to get our hands on you!  Mama Melissa, you better watch out!  Aunt Kari is going to spoil the socks off this little guy!


  1. Yay! Congratulations on being an aunt again! He is precious!

  2. Congrats! Being an aunt is the best :) That bedding looks really good - you did a great job!


I love to hear your thoughts - leave me some loving!
