I am going to be an aunt for the third time now that Kerry is pregnant with the third , second generation Reese.
Something tells me that a little boy is on the way, but in this family you never know.
Either way I am excited.
Mike is a proud papa to be.
He called mom and dad as soon as the news broke.
They were thrilled.
Lindsey was completely oblivious to their love fest as she played with magic nearby.
Lindsey does not seem the least bit worried or stressed about the new baby.
Mom always says that Lin has a one track mind.
If she chooses not to have kids then that is okay.
Me? I hope that she does.
I want to see what her children with Tarik will look like.
Our family has two dominant features dark hair and light eyes.
Mikey and Kerry moved out even after Lindsey set up a nursery in their room for them.
I guess they wanted some privacy not like Lin or anyone butted in on their business.
Yet, I respect their decision.
Growing up with six other siblings will make anyone a bit claustrophobic.
Lindsey respected their decision and cleaned out the room once they left.
Later when Lindsey went to the gym she met up with grandma Yumi and Sam.
Yumi is doing well, dating and partying.
Sam on the other hand is still a loner. He never really recovered after dad married my mom.
Still not sure why.
Lindsey ran to Miranda’s house before she went home.
Serena crawled over to her immediately with a smile on her little face.
Something about that moment changed everything.
She felt like something was missing…in her marriage, in her life.
I tried to get her to elaborate but, she wouldn’t.
She went outside to get some air and all this portal appeared.
Not one to pass up an opportunity, Lin went through it.
She found herself in a little place called Oasis Landing.
At first sight it was fabulous like Elysium.
Science thought of everything possible to make life smoother.
She came upon one of a woman named Angela who I assume is a great, great , great…etc grandchild of Lindsey.
Ang was so happy to see Lindsey that she did not want to let her go.
Angela is the mother of a brood like mom’s.
She has five children which I assumed is a legacy in the Reese family.
Well, those children are Zachary, Alfred, Ricky , Waylon and Cathleen.
They all were excited to see Lindsey as well.
The family resemblance is uncanny.
I can totally see Tarik in all of them.
Our family is genetically predisposed to have dark hair.
I guess is traveled all through the generations regardless of who married whom.
Yet, Alfred was born with blond hair so I guess there are a few recessive genes swimming around.
Then again, Sam does have brown hair so…
Lindsey created something called a plumbot.
Its a bit of a work in progress.
Needless to say she named it Arthur and went to work on it.
So when it was time to come home, guess who tagged along.
Lindsey was home for less than hour before she pounced on Tarik.
Me, I was too busy doing my hair to pay attention to all the commotion going on.
We all sat together at breakfast.
Tarik was a good mood.
I wonder why? LOL
I went over to Mike’s house to meet my little niece Mandy.
She is so adorable and extremely bright.
Mikey was so glad to see me when I came over.
I think that out of all of us. He is going to follow suit and have a brood like mom.
Lind said that he was the most proactive in the family with all the younger kids.
He spent a lot of time with us , playing and getting us together.
When I came home everything was so quiet in the house.
Tarik and Lin were not speaking to one another.
It was weird.
Tarik left for work and all of a sudden there was Lindsey standing downstairs rubbing her belly in tears.
Maybe this is what they call a midlife crisis.
Accept Tarik is in his early thirties so, I’m not sure what is going on.
Nor can I understand the villainous new look that he adopted.
Arthur and his little sprite were having fun upstairs.
I really want a sprite now.
Classes were cancelled due to the psychotic snowstorm so I went out and started snowboarding.
I am a badass at it.
Lindsey decided that we all should take a family photo. So all of sudden it was mom, dad, me, Morgan is Tarik posing like models in this tiny booth.
Lindsey begged mom and dad to move in with her.
As soon as they came over, they both decided it was time for a change.
Here is the aftermath.
The next morning Tarik and Lindsey laid in bed thinking about their marriage.
Lindsey suggested that they both dream about family.
Once it was all over there was tension in the air.
Lindsey decided that this was the moment to reveal the truth.
” Sweetie , I’m pregnant,” she replied.
His reaction was not she was expecting.
” What,” Tarik snapped, ” why the hell would you. You knew that I did not want kids.”
” Are you serious,’ she says, ” you were the one who said lets have kids. I want kids.”
” Don’t put this on me”, he spat back.
” GET OUT”, Lindsey cried.
Just like that Tarik was gone.
They filed for divorce a little after that.
Dad made waffles for breakfast to calm the dark mood in the air.
Its awesome sitting down for dinner with mom and dad.
We haven’t done this since I was a little kid.
That night I had to get ready for prom.
Everything had to be perfect down to my make up.
Meanwhile, Lindsey and mom discussed pregnancy.
Mom was pregnant four times.
Each pregnancy was a different in its own way.
Her pregnancy with me was the easiest.
Here I am in my prom dress.
Its a couture number that Lindsey brought back from Oasis landing complete with futuristic shoes.
Lindsey’s baby started kicking like a rockette.
Mom swears that the baby is a girl.
Lindsey sat down to a read a baby book when her water broke.
She waddled to the car and drove to the hospital.
Daryl was outside when Lin arrived.
He started freaking out that she was in pain.
Tarik came running into the hospital. He stayed by Lindsey side until she delivered a healthy baby girl who she named Ivy.
Ivy is the fourth grandchild born into the 2nd generation of Reese girls.
She joins Clary, Serena and Mandy.
I wonder what I’ll have when I have a kid.
What will Sam or Morgan have?
Only time will tell.
Tarik rode home in the taxi with Lindsey.
I guess he assumed that she would invite him in but, no.
He stood outside in the snow for almost an hour before leaving.
Here is sweet Ivy sleeping in her new crib.
Mom was the first face that Ivy saw in the morning.
She took her out for a stroll.
Ivy was having a ball.
Well, I’ll keep you updated guys…
Lin went into labor a few minutes after this.
