Ella's gonna have a little sister! I was thinking about this, and although I didn't have sisters (or brothers for that matter!), I can imagine what their relationship might be like through the years and what we will have to do with all this estrogen! Poor Brandon, he's really outnumbered now! But he's a proud papa, and we figure with as good as Ella has turned out, we're glad to welcome another girl into our lives.
Sisters can wear matching monogrammed dresses and hair bows on holidays and Daddy won't think they're sissys.
Sisters can play house together and dolls and dress up and all sorts of things that girls just LOVE to do. They will always have a friend to play with right under the same roof!
Sisters can giggle, laugh, and tell each other secrets. Especially after bedtime when the lights are out...instant slumber party every night!
Sisters can trade and borrow each other's clothes...though I've seen this become the source of many arguments for my friends who have sisters.
Sisters can look out for each other through school and be there for one another when trouble with boys or friends happens.
(I'm hoping) Sisters can assist each other on many game-winning goals on the soccer field!
Sisters can both be daddy's girls.
Sisters can both be mom's friend (when they get older, probably).
Your turn! What else can sisters do?

RWOC Find Your Place
-My Mom went back into the hospital for a week, and is getting closer to being on the list for a double lung transplant. Please pray for a miracle. Also pray for her doctors to find the right anti-rejection medicine for her so she can actually get on the list!
-We are getting ready to go on our first cruise! I'm looking forward to endless food options, snorkeling, white sandy beaches, clear water, and a chance to REST. I'm not looking forward to missing Ella for almost a week. But I think I'll manage. The grandparents get to divide her time between them.
