Benjamin? or Zoe?

Tomorrow, my little brother and sister-in-law get to find out if their baby is a boy or a girl.  I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!

I love being an aunt.  That is one of the few things, as the oldest in my family, I didn't get to experience before my siblings.  They got to be aunts and uncles long before I did.  :)  But after experiencing mommy-hood for awhile, I finally had the pleasure of gaining my own little nieces and nephews.  On my hubby's side, I have one nephew and two nieces.  And on my side, I have one nephew, a niece... and another on the way.  Oh, they are a delight.  I can enjoy them.  I don't have to discipline them.  I can spoil them.  And I can send them on their way.  :)

The newest addition is to arrive this summer, sometime in July.  The names they've chosen are Benjamin and Zoe.  I happen to love them both.

Names are so hard.  When we were choosing names for our sons, my husband and I struggled!  Our tastes are just so different.  Not my brother and his wife.  They've had these two names chosen for as long as I can remember... long before the baby had ever been created. 

And tomorrow, the little peanut will let us know which it's going to be.  I wonder if I'll EVER learn the art of patience?!
