Some exciting news for your Monday morning:
I'm pregnant with twins!
(PS - I just did a Google image search of the word "pregnant" thinking I might find a sweet, gentle public domain image I could use for the top of this post and oh my dear Lord. I'm just saying, Google, you could have warned me.)
True story - my brother's wife AND my sister (above) are both expecting, and I don't know if my mom has ever been this excited. I don't know if I've ever been this excited. My brother's baby is due on Christmas day, and my sister's baby is due just over three weeks later. They are both due right here in my arms as soon as possible after they get all cleaned off and start making sounds and everything.
On a (slightly) related note, I spent a few hours dreaming up a list of summer goals for Go Mighty over the weekend, and one of the things I'm planning to do before Labor Day is get started on knitting two of these blankets. Both my sister and my sister-in-law are going to wait until they meet their babies to find out whether they're boys or girls, so I had to find a good gender-neutral color scheme. I love this one. I'm planning to knit a blanket for each of them, so I probably should have started like six months ago.
I am so thankful for these two little munchkins and their mamas, and I cannot wait to meet them!
