Rave: Cousins!
Thu, 12-09-2010 - 2:25pm

So I found out a month or two ago that my cousin "D's" GF is pregnant and due on April 1st--which is exciting but they live in FL so we won't get to see them too much.

That is great, Adrienne! I remember you being concerned about this before. Wow, everybody got pregnant right around the same time!

I think this baby's only close-ish cousin will be SIL's daughter who will be about 17-18 months older. DF's oldest brother and his wife could possibly get PG soon, but they live in Alaska so it's not like we'd be seeing them all the time. My brother just turned 34 and he and my 22 yo cousin talk all the time on each other's FB walls

That IS exciting, Adrienne!

I totally know how you feel. I am so excited that my SIL's (DH's sister) son is only 8-1/2 mos. younger than Selin. It's a big difference now but once they get older, they'll be great playmates. The youngest kids on my side of the family are 5 years old.

My BIL's (DH's brother) DD (who is 2-1/2) is SO jealous of these new babies. DH said the last time he brought Selin to his mom's and our niece was there, they put Selin in

Adrienne- That is nice that he will have cousins. David most likely won't have any cousins at all like I didn't. My brother just got divorced. Granted he is still 32 but still he has to get married again and then have kids. This was his second marriage. Not sure if he will get married again.

Yay for cousins close in age! It does make things more fun!

In my family (my mom's side)--I'm 23, my cousin Hunter is 22 (both August birthdays) and my brother John and Tanner are 21 (November-2 days apart). Derek is 8, Claire 6.5, and Delaney 6. Will just turned 1 in September, so he and Peter are just under a year apart. Hunter's wife is my age, as is DH. It's great having all of us around, because everyone now has someone close in age to play with.

Incidentally, my aunt and I love having boys so close in age. I get all of their hand-me-downs, since she's done. The boys are getting matching personalized Christmas shirts this year!

Wow!!! He's so lucky to have all those cousins to play with! He'll have a blast!! I too wish that my sister would finally go ahead and get pregnant, so Fede has a cousin!
