Well, I could have sworn I wrote a blog post about the great news that my sister is having a little boy! Apparently, that must have been only in my dreams or something, according to all the ‘surprised’ comments on my last post! I am sorry I obviously didn’t pass on this absolutely fantastic news.
I couldn’t be happier that my sister is having a boy for a couple of reasons,
- my sister and her husband will have the great experience of raising a girl and a boy,
- I’ll be the proud aunt of a niece and a nephew,
- I don’t have to refrain from the fact that Greta is the cutest baby (girl) ever, because my nephew will be the cutest baby (boy) ever!, and
- we finally have another boy in the family. Hooray!
I got to see a couple of those 3D (?) images that they’re able to produce these days. Holy cow. It’s almost like you took an actual photo of the baby in the womb. It’s amazing!
My sister and her husband haven’t decided on a name yet. I find that terribly difficult anyway. Finding a name for a girl is hard, finding a name for a boy is (almost) impossible.
I am open for any suggestions that I can pass on to the expecting parents… maybe you’re the lucky person whose name they might pick!
Keep in mind, the name should go well with Greta and it should also be a “German” name. (Obviously, my sister won’t give her child an English sounding name – she’s an elementary school teacher and had way too many bad experiences with “foreign” and unusual names. They usually get butchered when you try to pronounce them in German ;)).
