Baby on the way! Don’t worry, it’s not mine and Brian’s

Last week I got a package in the mail from my sister.  I wasn’t allowed to open it until we were able to FaceTime.  For reference, Megan is always sending me little cards and stationery with my name on it, which I love.  Some of you might not know my love affair with paper products, but I love all things stationery.  So my sister sending me a random package and asking me to FaceTime wasn’t that out of the ordinary.  I honestly thought nothing of it.

Until I saw what was inside

Now, a little backstory.  It’s no surprise that I am not a fan of children.  It’s not so much that I don’t like them, it’s that I don’t know what to do with them.  My sister is only 2 years younger than me, so I never babysat my sister.  Growing up, we lived on Highway 98, so I was never the neighborhood babysitter either.  I literally have no idea what to do with babies.  And then there’s the crying.  The hissyfits.  The toddler kicking my seat in the airplane.  Maybe it’s not the kids I don’t like, it’s the parents… I’ll have to work through that issue later.  However, something about my little sister having her own baby… words cannot explain the complete and extraordinary JOY I have.  I am so excited about having a little one in the family!  I love talking to Megan and hearing all about how she’s feeling, what’s going on with her belly, how her doctor’s appointments go.  I am all of a sudden, all things baby.

She is right at 15 weeks and looks amazing!  Here is a shot of her and my Dad right after my parents heard the big news.

Look at that little peanut belly!

The proud parents-to-be will be finding out the sex soon and I can’t wait to hear whether I will have a little niece or nephew!

Congratulations, Megan and Chad!

  1. So excited for you Tara! Being an Aunt is the best because you can just pack those crying, hissyfit throwing babies up and send them right out the door!
