So… in November I posted about how we were putting the debt snowball on hold due to a slower than expected fall. This was, and is still true.
However – we also had a second reason – which we could not share at the time… and while it’s a debt snowball setback – it’s also terrific news.
We’re expecting a baby!
Due this summer – so our debt payoff is on hold – but we couldn’t be more overjoyed.
And we are so thankful for all the hard work we put in last year. Baby will be born into a family that is only a few more payoffs from being debt free!
Ok, so – no big announcement here – it’s not my immediate family growing – it’s all THREE of my brothers’!
Up until this point only one brother had any kids (three girls) – now in 2012, there will be 4 new nephews! One brother’s son arrived in May, one brother found out they are having a boy in the fall, and just yesterday, my baby brother (can I still refer to him as that?) found out that their twins arriving late fall are both boys.
BOOM! Just like that the girl cousins are out numbered.
Growing up as the only girl with three brothers, I never did the math to realize they would grow up and produce a little army. But I’m so excited for all of them. As one sister-in-law put it – they are growing an “army of FUN!”
It will be pretty sweet that there will be 4 boy cousins all the same age. AND add 4 more mariner fans to the world. 😉
(and let me tell you – we are already working on upping the Gift budget)
Is it Christmas yet? Can all the nephews be born now – and I can go home to visit already?
