Guess What?

I've been keeping a biiiiiiiiiiiiig secret...


I'm going to be an aunt! My baby sister is having a baby. She is 13 weeks pregnant and due in December. This is my niece or nephew.

When I found out, I was in a hotel room with Karin when she was visiting Florida, and I couldn't exactly tell her nothing after screaming and shrieking and sobbing, so she's been the only one who has known for, well, about 12 weeks. It was rather exciting to share this secret with someone I met here because I was blogging about my band and am now proud to call a true friend. Other than that, it has been on the hush-hush until they got out of the scary first trimester.

It is no great secret that I can't have kids. Scott and I tried for a long time and it didn't work and when the option was to do major fertility treatments or not, I decided that I would rather (honestly!) just be a really fabulous aunt one day. So I can't even begin to tell you how unbelievably over-the-moon thrilled I am about this.

Dana and Mike are going to be incredible parents and I am blown away by the love I already have for their adorable little baby bump and I can't wait to get to know him or her.

Congrats to you Auntie!! You will have so much fun and still be able to give the child back! Honestly I feel the same. If Chris and I try again soon and it again fails then I opt out for treatments. But I can be happy being a God Mom and Aunt!
