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.


  1. Woo Hoo! Does that mean I will be Grammy again. Miss Emily grew up right before my eyes and the two of you were inseparable. You have a bond that has remained strong through each chapter of your lives. Even when you would butt heads as kids (and adults too) your souls were still one. And you both were good at wanting to be right... :) So many wonderful memories. And now your children will share that special bond. I pray they have the imaginations and love for life, animals and nature that the two of you portray. Even your imaginery animals and friends. Who could forget Monk and Rascal. My heart still fills with love and pride and I smile when I remember all the fun we had. The commercials, the plays, the adventures of Emily and Jennifer.To be continued....forever! I love you girls and I am so happy for Emily (and yes you too...Auntie Jen). She will be a wonderful Mommy and you will be the best Auntie ever! xoxoxoxox

  2. Geez Jen I about jumped out of my chair! congrats on being a new auntie and congrats to Emily. Being an aunt is one of the best things!

  3. Mom,
    Thanks! I loved your comment! We sure did have a lot of fun! You were always so awesome about playing along with all of our adventures ;)-Love you!

    Hahahaha! Funny that you almost fell out of your chair! Imagine Kurts shock and surprise when I found out Em was pregnant and announced it to him in the very same way ;) And i miss hanging with you too! We really need to have a beach day, or SOMETHING, before summer is over!!

  4. Hey Jen! Email me sometime.... I would love to catch up! Congrats to Emily. I hope that she has a healthy 9 months and I wish her the best, as the best is yet to come! xo Honi
