… my sister called me and told me she was pregnant.
Positively and 100% pregnant.
It had been such an eagerly awaited news and I wasn’t anything but extraordinarily and overly happy for her! Now it’s exactly one year after the exciting news and there is this 4-month-old bundle of joy in our lives now. It’s amazing how I can hardly remember what it was like when Greta was not yet part of the family!
Just yesterday, congratulating my cousin on his 18th birthday, I realized how fast time has gone by… especially the last 18 years. Much, much fast than the first 15 years. It’s simply amazing to me. And a little scary (but I won’t let that overwhelm me too much).
I am just hoping time will not fly by that fast with Greta, especially since I won’t be around to see much of her growing up.
My heart kind of aches thinking about that by the time I am going to see her again, she probably will be able to walk towards me on her own.
She’s already changed and grown so much in the last two months that I haven’t seen her.
The good thing is, due to my being so far away, Greta will have lots and lots of pictures and videos of herself when she’s older, because I make her parents and grandparents send me updates every single week! I guess, sometimes good things come from having an aunt living so far away.
