My Beautiful Sister

Karen is due to have her first baby in 6 weeks or so,
Her belly is round and her face does glow.
She was showered with affection last weekend,
From near and far, her friends did attend.

One friend made cakes, 3 to be exact!
Didn't take long for those to be cracked!

Some friends made gifts,
some bought cute clothes,

Some bought necessities,

some, socks for baby toes.

Olives and
pink boots rounded out the day,
To bring it all home she needed a sleigh.
She will be a great mom, despite her doubts,
Provided she doesn't feed the baby brussels sprouts.

Karen, baby is so lucky to belong to you,
There is nothing that you will not be able to do.
You can always come here when you need a break,
I'll provide wine, the girls and baby will play patty-cake.

Love you :)

That's some pretty sweet sister love, Sue! Congrats to your glowing sister.

Karen said...

My pregnant hormones are all a flutter (tears tears tears!) Love you Sue! Thank you for being YOU!

The olives I take it are for a much needed martini at some point or part of a pregnancy craving. Either way, babies are a blessing.

Congratulations to your sister on her baby. Those cakes looked beautiful and delicious. The baby is not only lucky to have Karen for a mom, but you for an aunt.
