Slowly, the months passed, and finally, the fun part came. Our family was hosting all sorts of "baby" parties, and along with parties, came the gifts. Although all of the gifts were things for the baby, I still enjoyed unwrapping them. There were clothes, building blocks, blankets, baby bottles, pacifiers, and all sorts of baby related items, and in that moment, I realized that this was all real. I was actually going to be a big sister. Soon the thought became reality, on October 31, 2005, my family welcomed my little brother, Ryan, into both the world and our family.

A mixture of anticipation and excitement flooded the room as my parents paced back and forth preparing to deliver the "big news". When the news was finally conveyed, I was elated, and so was the rest of the family. My parents told me that I would soon be getting a new baby brother or sister. I was filled with excitement, but soon those feelings turned to impatience, was this baby ever coming? The biggest part of the surprise was that I wouldn't know the gender of the baby until it was here, and as a young child, the anticipation was eating at me.
