Marilyn the Big Sister!

Marilyn is excited to announce that she will be a BIG SISTER!!!

The Easter Bunny will be bringing more than just eggs to the Smith residence in 2011. At just over 9 weeks along, we were surprised by this exciting news. We met with the doctor on Friday, and our due date is April 29 2011. We feel so blessed and pray for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

Aunt Kate & Uncle Brett surprised us with an adorable LL Bean bag for the newest Smith and two cute outfits and bibs. Aunt Ronna has also started another library with "Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What do You See".

When we told Marilyn she was going to be a big sister, she replied, "I am a sister- I have Zelda!" (our new cat) We decided 9 months is a long time to wait for a big surprise so we can let her realization grow over time. Once the crib takes the place of her toys in the spare room, Marilyn may start to understand that magic word of siblings... SHARE! We are so excited for this wonderful gift and look forward to April.
