Go Forth and Multiply

"As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it." - Genesis 9:7 (New International Version)

It looks like my married siblings are taking the abovementioned Bible passage to heart. I received news this morning that my other sister is 1 1/2 months pregnant! One after the other, they're having babies!

She's due on January. Eight months after Nessie, my sister-in-law, gave birth to Baby Chloe. By that time, we'll have a new baby to spoil. Although we'll have difficulty spoiling the baby since my sister does not live with us anymore. They do however visit, once a week.

My twin sister is cajoling her husband to try to come home as soon as possible so she can become pregnant as well.

Of course, I'm ecstatic for all of them. Although a part of me is also wanting to have what they have. I'm not even sure if I will be blessed with such a gift. Let's just wait and see.
