Lilia is the first FEMALE among us siblings to become a parent! . I got very emotional when Nina called to tell me the details of Amelie’s birth. It suddenly was so overwhelming and wonderful! Its hard to describe, but while Nina and I were talking over the phone I started remembering how Lilia and I were years and years ago. It really does still feel like yesterday though, Lilia being the popular beautiful girl, Lilia always being the caring older sister who always seemed to have energy and a smile on her face.
I remember even talking about what we thought about giving birth. Most of it being on the lines of….”Imagine this thing coming out of there. Thats got to hurt like —-!” or “I don’t think I’d want my husband to be there during the delivery. All that blood is kind of a turn off I’d think!” hahaha.
And now, here Lilia is…. a mother! I still haven’t been able to talk to her on skype, and I’m absolutely dying to see her carrying Amelie! I really don’t know why, but its so amazing that my sister is a mother now!
I’ve yet to meet you in person Amelie. But I love you dearly! Damn, I’m getting all emotional again just typing this. I don’t know whats wrong with me. Amelie, you’ve made me into mush!
Maxim and Lilia, huge congratulations! I wish I could hug you guys and be there in person to hear how the delivery went. I’m sure Grandma Tania is over the moon as well!
