On that same day, I was celebrating my sister Erin's baby shower in Massachusetts. (Photo below)
She is due with her first baby (a girl) in mid-December, and this whole side of the family is super excited!
On tour we have babies arriving, too - Olga B. is due with her second child (a girl) in December, and my Russian tutor Tanya is due with her first child (also a girl!) in March. One of our comrades, Elise, just left the tour to have her baby girl in December, back home in Quebec.
And I can't leave out Kitsie, PSCA's General Manager and my dear colleague and friend - Kitsie is due in January with her first baby! We don't know yet whether it will be a boy or a girl. (Theory A: Everybody seems to be having girls, so she must, as well. Theory B: Everybody seems to be having girls, so somebody's got to have a boy to balance this out!)
Much baby-snuggling and toe-tickling lies in my future....
