Aunt Jen

I'm pretty excited because I'm about to become an Aunt very soon. Technically, I am already an Aunt as my SIL has a daughter and my stepbrother has children. However now that my sister is pregnant, I'm really going to be an Auntie, and I must say that I'm more than a little excited about Lily Marie's impending arrival in late October.

Growing up, Jaime and I did not have cousins our own age. At family gatherings it was just the two of us, which was a bit boring as we already had our fill of playing with each other. When my brother came along he had cousins his age on both sides of our family, and we were just a tad jealous. Being only a couple years apart in age, I always hoped that Jaime and I might have children around the same age, but for a while that was looking unlikely. So now that it is actually happening, I am over the moon. Between us we will have three little girls who I can't wait to see growing up together.

Right now I am planning her baby shower along with her best friend. I think I might be more excited about her shower than I was my own! Oh and I did I mention she is the cutest pregnant lady ever?

I love you Jaime! We can't wait to meet Miss Lily in a few months!

It'll be good for Jillian and Hayden to have cousins their own age (on your side of the family as well as Jeramy's I mean). I had a lot of good experiences with Rena, Joe, and Carina, and since we didn't live together there weren't many fights.

It's also good for you and Jaime. Jillian and Hayden, when they get a little older, would get bored fairly easily at some place like Jaime's without a playmate and thus bother you a lot, but with a cousin, they'll have fun and leave you guys alone.

I'm going to be an Auntie, too! It's exciting. And I always enjoy other peoples' showers more than my own. It's so much fun to celebrate a new baby!

Aww thanks Jen!! I'm so glad to make you an auntie! There is definitely something about your own sister having babies. I just love Jillian and Hayden to pieces, and I can't wait to see all three girls playing together. I'm sure there will be lots of squealing - poor Justin!
