Skype remains on my list of one of the best inventions ever, but "visiting" on the computer is just not the same.
We chatted for a few minutes, and then she hit me with it.
"So I just thought you might like to know that I'm pregnant."
There was a second's pause as it sunk in, and then I screamed. Really loudly. Allison laughed and Katie came running into the room with a huge smile on her face, because somehow she already knew what I was screaming about.
A few months later, there was a beautiful baby girl in our lives.
Well, today that beautiful baby girl turns 7!
She is clever and hilarious and creative and just so much fun! Happy birthday!!!
And I am one proud auntie :-D
