It seems so surreal. Like a dream. Life is meant to be lived for these moments. The kind of moments that are so incredible, they don’t seem real.
Its cheesy. Its a bit over the top. but its how I feel. Every time I think about Baby Bean. I am so unbelievably excited for The end of January – there are no words.
I am going to be an Auntie. for reals. no matter how embarrassing I am at family functions … this Bean … can’t pretend we aren’t related. And I will be embarrassing.
I will also be really really proud. I don’t think its possible to be prouder than I am now … and I haven’t even met him … or her. I tell EVERYONE I am going to be an Auntie. No one seems quite as excited as I am. I talk about it like its my baby. I get weird looks. People stare at me out of the side of their heads. They shake their head. But I don’t care. I’ll shout it from the rooftops. Auntie Shawna is going to SPOIL baby Bean. For-Ever.
I know that this little miracle – is going to have the most incredible life. Aside from the fact that I will teach him/her everything I know …. (like – seriously … Grape Pop is AWESOME!) … His parents are over the top incredible. I know. I seems I am obligated to say that. But I’m not. I mean it.
Chad and Mel. Mel and Chad. There truly isn’t anyone we’d rather hang with. Darren and Chad are brothers. And friends. Getting to know “Chelissa” over the years has been nothing but amazing. We love drinking wine. playing Wii. Watching You Tube. travelling to SK together. and more importantly – Melissa – is my sister. We don’t spend every night on the phone together … but the get togethers feel like we have never skipped a day of chatting in our lives. Without a Doubt … Chad and Mel will be the best parents you will ever know. Driven. Caring. Committed. Loving. Thoughtful.
Bean … I know you will be perfect. You will have Chad’s savvy business sense and Melissa’s heart of gold. You will inherit both of their quick wit and hilarious sense of humour. You will be gorgeous. And even though you aren’t here yet … I love you more than you can know.
I can’t wait to meet you. I am counting the hours …
MUCH MUCH MUCH LOVE!
