I am so excited! For the last 5 years I have been an Aunt to Nathan's Nieces and Nephews (5 of them) but I have thought about the day that I would become a Zia (Aunt in our family) to my sister or brothers kids! I found out last night that my sister and brother-in-law are having their first baby! I screamed so loud when I heard and then cried and then laughed and then cried (you get the picture). I felt like I was the one pregnant!
You see my sister and I are very close, well I should say my entire big Italian family is very close and this is so exciting. During my pregnancies and after giving birth my sister was always right there to cook, clean ,give the girls baths anything I needed. She is so awesome and I am so excited to be able to return the favor. Not to mention paybacks are a B**** :) she taught our kids to pick their nose, play in the dirt and shake their booties!!! So I will be right there with lots of candy before bed and never have any kleenex for a runny nose LOL!! The most exciting part of it all is that Sammy and their baby will only be a year apart and at this time seems like a lot but when they are older they can play together and be good friends! So to say the least I am very HAPPY to soon hear a little one call me ZIA!!!
