“She’s pregnant!” I told my dad confidently before speaking to her.
“Or she’s moving to Portland!”
He kept quiet about the topic, insisting I call her as soon as possible.
“You’re going to be an auntie again,” she said calmly, once I was able to reach her.
“Yay!” I yelled, passing on the exciting news to Uncle Ryan.
“And there are two babies,” she said when she spoke again.
I think I was silent for a full fifteen seconds as my mouth dropped open in surprise. Then my face was overtaken with a huge smile.
We can’t wait to meet the twins, a boy and a girl, due in June. They will join my sister’s other two children, our adorable niece and nephew. Congratulations Maya and Erin! We couldn’t be happier for you.
