Sisters....

I am a little sister.

I have a big brother.

Jeff was 4 1/2 years older than me.

And most of the time...he wanted nothing to do with me...

I was the annoying little sister who wanted him to play with me...ALL THE TIME..

I wanted to play with him, with his friends... I wanted to join his clubs...you know the NO GIRLS ALLOWED clubs... I wanted to be at his birthday parties... I drove him CRAZY...

I had an older brother...and I knew what it was to be a sister...but I never knew what it was like to have a sister...and to be honest... I didn't think I was missing anything...

boy was I wrong...



There is something about a sister....

Something I had no way of understanding...

because I never had someone I could tell all my secrets too...




Someone who I knew always..

ALWAYS...

had my back...



When we told Reilly we were going to have a baby...
she cried.

She cried and she thanked us.

Like we did it all for her...

When we went for our untra sound appointment..

Reilly came with Ryan and I...

and when the technician asked us if we were interested in knowing what we were having...

Reilly answered before we could...

"YES!"

When she found out it was a girl...

a SISTER...

she cried.

again.

I am so glad these girls have each other...



To watch out for each other..
to tell their secrets to...
to snuggle with...



to laugh with...

and be silly with...



just knowing these girls have each other...
makes me smile.

They will NEVER be alone...
They will always have someone on their side...

what a wonderful way to go through life...
I hope they know what a gift that it..
and trust me when I say...
I will remind them EVERY single chance I get!

Let's face it... we've all had friends we thought would be around forever...
but if we want to admit it or not...
friends come and go...
all. the. time.
even the ones we think won't ever go anywhere...
sometimes...
they leave too.
but not sisters...

a sister isn't just a forever friend...
she's a forever BEST friend.
