We're having a baby!, I am not actually  the one having the baby...but its as close as I'm ever going to get again! And the we I refer to is me and my best friend, Emily. And fine!...She and Jared are having a baby (but I can call it mine if I wanna!) and I am so excited I can barely sleep! She is due in January and has just started to show and - oh be still my heart - it is the most beautiful sight ever! And as if seeing her little bump of a belly wasn't enough to send me reeling, I got to hear the baby's heartbeat. Miraculous.

I love the relationship that Emily has with my kiddos and although I know mine with hers will be different, it will be just as special! Emily is the cool auntie with cool ideas, fun gifts, and who has a light-hearted way of making me a less neurotic momma (sometimes). I cannot wait to meet and love and spoil her baby!

We have been best friends since second grade, know each other inside out, and have seen each other through every aspect of our lives, and I am so excited for this new chapter in hers! She will be such an amazing momma. I can already see the changes...and they look beautiful on her.
