The Love

When I first found out I was pregnant, with Kyler and with Ella, I knew that I would love them.

The amount of love I now feel for them surprises me sometimes, but I knew that they were being born into a very caring and loving home.

When I first found out that my little sister was pregnant, I was shocked. They had been married for quite a while and we weren't sure they wanted babies.

After I got over the shock, I was excited.

I was excited to plan her baby showers.

I was excited to give her all of our baby stuff.

I was excited to watch her grow.

I was excited to hug and kiss on that little baby.

I was excited to watch her love her baby just like I love mine.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend her baby showers because I was so sick. That still bothers me. A big sister is supposed to be there for her little sis. I couldn't be. I apologize for that little sis.

Something that I was not expecting to feel was the love that I feel for my nephew. I haven't seen him since Saturday and I miss him so much. I miss my little sister too.

Jacki and I have always been pretty close, but since getting pregnant that bond has grown. I am glad that I have been there/done that and I am able to offer her advice and help her as she begins this fun and exciting journey into parenthood.

I think she has already discovered that being a mommy is the best job in the world.

I feel the same way about my little sis, but she had her son before me (but the boys are only 5 months apart). It's an awesome bond to have with our sisters!

You are going to be such an important part of that little guy's life!

My sister doesn't want kids. Period. I totally support her in her decision, but sometimes I'm so sad that I won't get to be an Aunt.
