exciting news!

My younger sister, Erica just informed me she is having a GIRL!!! I cannot tell you how excited I am. I have 4 nephews (all under the age of 4) and a little brother (age 4), whom I'm deeeeeeply in love with, but I have waited 5 long years for a precious niece. My whole family knows my shopping addiction, so they keep joking that I will literally break the bank for this sweet little miracle. And you know what? They're right. Erica also has a 16 month old named Klayton. She will be one busy little mommy, so I will be Aunt Rachel to her rescue. This definitely helps with the baby fever I have been battling lately.
Here are some pictures of my sweet family.

Here is Erica and her husband Jon

Uncle JonRoss and Ethan (age 1)

Me and Klayton (I'm playing peek-a-boo and he's sporting his rad mohawk)

Just a little glimpse into my wonderful world. Sorry for the poor quality of pictures, bad lighting and no cropping of pictures. Partly lazy and partly camera. I am excited to get our new camera soon!
