An Aunt & Uncle

Ryan's brother got married in May. They're expecting and are due in February. Yesterday they found out they're having a little boy, so Ryan will be an uncle {well, he is already with Hillary's kids, but it's not the same}!

Yes, we're sad we aren't having the first grand-child and the fact that we've been trying for over a year now makes it a little difficult to share in their joy, but I'm still VERY happy for them. I just would have been happier for us.

I debated posting this, but this is MY journal, my thoughts, my feelings...And I really AM excited for them to welcome a new little soul into the world and into their lives. but...

It still hurts.

I totally know what your going through... Cami had her little boy 2 yrs before we had Mason. I was awful with jealousy, it got to the point Cami and I didn't talk for over a year. Chels you guys will get pregs, I know how awful it is when everybody else is pregs or has kids but you. It'll happen, for us it was once we let it be... once we quit worrying about it, it happened. I love you and I know you WILL be a great mom, and I am sure you ARE a great auntie.

I think it's okay that you posted it. You're right - it is your journal. It sucks - I'm sorry. It's not as fun trying when you're trying so hard. Not that that's any consolation. Boo!

It's okay, don't be sad. It'll happen sometime and in the meantime, you have a beautiful dog to pamper and dote on. In our family prayers, we always ask that you will BOTH be able to make this happen, so that's four of us asking for help for you guys. On the bright side, you are able to work to buy that awesome bench for your entry. Tres chic! Remember I told you to check out the Today show advice last week. It's free and worth a try. Do it. Now. Love you both.
