Babies, babies!
Congratulations to my brother Anthony and his wife Kara, who are expecting their third child. (Good grief! Between the Howards and the Carbos, we’ve now achieved an actual basketball team. Tall, hearty Midwestern stock, every single one of ’em!)

And additional congratulations to a knitter friend of mine in Sydney, who is expecting her second. (She hasn’t blogged it yet, so it’s still on the down-low.)
