I have got to wish a happy birthday to my sweet sister today.
For as long as I can remember, my sister has been my best friend. Growing up, we were really inseperable.
All of my special childhood memories have her in them, especially during the holidays.
All times were special in our house, but the holidays were like no other.
Now that we’ve grown up, our lives and relationship has changed, but it has only gotten stronger. She is my best friend now in a deeper, more complete way than when we were little and just loved playing together. I can trust and confide in her like hardly anyone else and I admire the woman she has become. Of course, we still have some fun too
I could go on and on about my little sister, but wishing her a happy birthday and complimenting her is only half the reason I’ve written this post.
You see, this year is a very special birthday for her because it is the last before she becomes a mother.
Yes, that’s right, my baby sister is having a baby!
AND I’M GOING TO BE AN AUNT!!! Can you tell I’m excited?
She and her husband are so thrilled and so is the rest of our family. Our sweet little family of six is growing again.
As of April 15, 2013 (or somewhere around there), we will have a precious little addition.
I know these two are going to be the absolute best parents ever.
I have no doubt that their child will be the sweetest, most loved child in the world because that’s just who these two are.
As for what it’s going to look like, I hope it looks just like little Ashley did long ago.
Seriously…what a beautiful little child…and now our lucky family gets one more!!!
Happy birthday, sweet sister.
I’ll have many more udpates as it gets closer, I know. Plus, my mom and I are already brainstorming an amazing shower for her and the little one.
Have a happy, happy weekend!
