Aunt Chrissy & Uncle P- Spoiling Starts September 2016

I have been bursting at the seams and am so excited to finally get to spill the beans... Parker and I are going to have a little niece or nephew this fall! My twin sister is about 15 weeks pregnant with the perfect baby that we cannot wait to spoil the crap out of.

When I flew home to Texas for my birthday, Danielle (twin sister) told me she would pick me up from the airport. When I arrived, she made up an excuse of why she had to park the car and met me inside the baggage claim area. I didn't understand why she couldn't just wait in the car line but chalked it up to her inexperience with airports and didn't think anything of it. When I saw her coming down the escalator, she held a sign that read "Aunt Chrissy".

I'll be honest- I totally didn't get it at first. I think I said something like "aww, thanks", to which she followed "you don't get it, do you?". I think I gasped so loud the entire airport heard me! Tears were flowing and I just couldn't believe it!

There is something so special about your twin sister being pregnant. I can't even describe the joy I feel for her. It's funny, because I'm usually pretty good about the whole "missing everything due to the military" thing. I understand and accept that we just won't get to be with our families for every little thing that comes up, but knowing I am going to have a niece or nephew 1400 miles away is a tough pill to swallow. I loved growing up with my aunt, uncle, and cousins at arms length and want that for this baby, but we will savor the time we do get. My sisters and parents all live close by, so this baby will still have so much family around to love on him/her. 

Her kid will call me Aunt Chrissy, a long-standing joke in the family. My name is obviously not Chrissy or any form of it, but a long time ago at my first internship, a lady got mad at me and called me "Little Girl Chrissy" because she didn't know my name. It just stuck. :)

How cute is their Disney-themed reveal? Sully the pup is very excited to be a big brother!

Oh wow!!!! What a sweet way to reveal t to you!!! My sister and I have never lived near each other, so it is tough being so far away from my nieces. But thank the Lord for FaceTime and Skype!! I just saw my new 5 week old niece over spring break for the first time and spent the entire time snuggling her! Congrats Aunt Chrissy!
