My own family is nothing like that and this pregnancy has weeded out even more of my family members that I have mentally checked off. More on that later...
I am so thankful to have married into this amazing family and that there are so many of us pregnant at the same time (there are now 4 of us pregnant, 3 due within 30 days of each other, the other one due in June).
Next Thanksgiving, in addition to the 5 little kids that are already part of our extended family, we will have 5 babies under one year old!
It's going to be insane, but I can't wait for our children to have the most amazing people to grow up around. I see how close Chicken is to her family and cousins--again, it's the complete opposite of how I grew up--and I can't wait to give them the experience of a real family.
It's all the most amazing gift I've been given and I couldn't be more thankful.
