At the tender age of 10, I became an aunt to the one-and-only, Christopher John.
You can only imagine my delight at the idea of having a real live baby to play with and hold! I celebrated the occasion with some, awesome hot powder blue silky short shorts. Trend-setter from the beginning guys.
Christopher was the center of the family! He brought so much joy, and we all treasured that little boy.
Fast forward and suddenly Christopher is a man. Dumb how that happens, but indeed kids do grow up.
But as sad as it is, when little ones aren't so little anymore, there are perks that come accompany watching them become adults. One of the biggest perks?
Well, her name is Jaclyn.
Jaclyn has been in our family a long time! Actually since 2005.
And she is one of us.
We all just adore this couple.
Soooooo, on February 13th when I noticed a missed Face Time call from her, I just deleted it assuming she accidentally did that.
I mean, Jaclyn doesn't Face Time with me.
Then I got this message the next day..
AND THEN THIS MESSAGE.
I was sure why at this point, but it was awesome to hear the confirmation.
But now we have been granted permission to shout out the good news!!
You guys! My sweet Christopher and Jaclyn are having a baby!
Do you know what this means? I will be a great-aunt! My brother is gonna be a grandpa! And my parents will be great-grandparents! OH EM GEE.
Busting. BUSTING AT THE SEAMS WE ARE.
Oh, and generally great-aunts are a little coo-coo, right?
Seriously, I was made to be a cooky great-aunt.
I CAN'T WAIT.
Love you guys!
