I'VE GOT A BRAND-NEW, SOON TO BE LITTLE SISTER ON HER WAY!!!/ Frankly, I've always savored being the eldest child anyway / And the ones I cherish most favorably have always been my siblings, if I may daresay / So lucky me, and let's toast my Dearest Dad and his Due-Darling today / With Cheers, Moved Tears, Sweet-Sentiments.... Yippee, Whoopee, Hooray!!! #themorethemerrier."
