Have you ever noticed that babies seem to come in waves? I remember the first baby wave in our family. Silje and David were so close together, they were their own wave. But then, my sister, Heidi had Jackson, who is on the left (well he was smaller when he was born)
and Knut’s sister, Rondi had Kaeden (he was smaller too!)
and they were just 6 weeks apart. We had nephews!
Then in the next wave, we had Elias in the same week that Rondi had Isaac, and Knut’s cousin, Emily, had Oliver. Knut’s grandparents had 3 great-grandsons within 7 days. You can see pictures of them together here.
Well, the baby wave has returned. Although it has not come crashing down on our house, it has crashed all around us. My good friend (and I suppose Knut’s relative), Carolyn just announced her pregnancy! How exciting!
Knut’s brother, Jon (this is him holding Elias. I don’t have a good picture of Kristin in my blog…something I must quickly rectify.) and his wife, Kristin
have just announced that she is pregnant! Not with one, but with 2! At their doctor’s appointment, the doctor at their clinic was having trouble identifying if there were 2 or 3 heartbeats. So they had to drive to the hospital for an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed “just” 2 babies, but Jon said it was about the scariest 15 minute drive of his life.
All the couples are due this spring, and we couldn’t be more excited. With 3 nephews, Knut and I are hoping for at least 1 niece in there. Silje is hoping even more than us, though, as she is still the only girl cousin on both sides. It’s tough being the only princess, I suppose. Just don’t be surprised or suspicious if you see me posting lots of fun baby sewing projects this winter! I love baby waves!
