Going to be an AUNTIE!!!

This is old news to some, but I haven't been able to post the fun pictures we have to show off the announcement! Back in Dec I drove back to MN with my younger sister. She kept getting carsick and seriously slept the whole time (just kidding Jill...you did a TON of driving, thank you!) A few days after getting to MN she found out she was PREGNANT! YEAH! It is a God thing because they weren't exactly trying (ie on birth control). For me it is so fun to have my sister become a mommy because I know she is going to LOVE it and do such an amazing job at it. Plus now I have my sister/best friend who gets to go through the same things I do!


I had to keep it a secret though! THAT was hard. She wanted to tell our family on Christmas Morning which was over a week away when she told me. It was a fun surprise to tell, that family filled morning. We gathered everyone up for a 'family' picture and as I was taking the picture I was yelling out "Say Cheese everyone!" then I snuck in "Say Jillian's Pregnant!" and just as they reacted I was able to snap some photos (which are on her camera I believe). Perfect way to announce such a joyous thing.

Here is her first belly shot (probably around 5 weeks) She is now 11 wks and is due Mid August. They WILL be finding out the gender right around when my baby is due so that will be an exciting time!
Grandma getting to love the baby:-0 Third grandchild and Jillian and Josh's first!
Cousins! Getting our first belly picture together and possibly last before the babies come! Me almost 30wks and her 6 or 7 wks:-)

Yay Yay Yay! Thanks for sharing these photos, Elissa!!! It's still such a surreal feeling to me that I won't be able to see her at all throughout this whole process!!! I haven't quite gotten used to the fact that I'll be missing out on so much with my friends in MN!!! Hope you are doing well. And yes, it's getting close for me :) It's FINALLY down to weeks (and the time feels like it's dragging SOOOO slowly!!!).
