On January 20th, our worlds changed forever…no, not because I had a baby, but because my (super strong and resilient) sister had a baby! The first baby to welcome into our family and we are all just super in love with him! Since he’s been around, I’ve smelled more newborn head (y’all know that’s a thing), changed more diapers than I ever have, bounced on an exercise ball more than before (it really calms him) and most importantly, I’ve seen my sister and brother-in-law step into their roles as parents (they’re really quite natural and good at it), I’ve seen my parents turn into grandparents who are so doting and I’ve seen my other sister and I become Aunts to this tiny little wonder. I can’t help but imagine how his life will turn out and the many things he will do and see. I can’t wait to teach him all about travel and visiting far-flung places, introduce him to some good oldies and show him some old videos of his mom clogging, all while figuring out what he loves and what his interest are – it’s going to be one of the greatest adventures ever!
In the mean time, I’ll just enjoy snuggling him every chance I get!
It’s crazy how much bigger he already is, in just 7 weeks! So much love! -Aunt Abby
