Something Swell-(ing) on Saturday!

The 3:30 Project is a collaborative blog by three life-long friends: Maggie, Mary Margaret and Jillian. On Saturdays, Mary Margaret plans to post something from the week that made her smile.

This week, my sister Emily gave me the honor and joy of using my Saturday post to share some wonderful news about what is (literally) developing right now in our family! Baby Neder 2 is coming in late summer, and this week at her twenty-week prenatal check-up, we discovered some fun and exciting news!

Here’s what I love about a gender-reveal from my perspective. I tend to have a guess in my mind, like many people do, but when I find out, my reaction ends up being so similar. It’s like….”I was right!! I knew it! Hurray!! It’s so exciting!!” or alternately, “I was wrong-Totally off!! Hurray!! It’s so exciting.” Few things in life can elicit such equal reactions to different outcomes that introduce two such lovely possibilities to look forward to. At the end of the day, we were all just happy to hear that the baby is healthy and Emily is healthy, but it’s also fun to start dreaming even more about what the little one will be like.

And what do we know so far? Dylan’s getting ready for big-brotherhood in a sweet way….



There’s something swelling! And it’s Emily’s baby bump, with a baby NIECE!
