Nephew Time

I got to babysit my one-year-old nephew yesterday ❤ It was wonderful. He is adorable and very well behaved. 

And clearly he was very excited to visit his Tante Amy because he pooped three times while I was watching him. 

We went to visit Auntie Bethany at work and he brought joy to everyone with his adorable, shy grin. I think stores should pay people to walk around with cute babies. It would make life so much better for everyone. 

It was just great. I love that kid so much. Exactly what I needed for post-final recovery! I think I need to kidnap him for the next two weeks. He recharges the soul. 


Happy Birthday, Devin!

It is my nephew’s first birthday!! Hard to believe a year has passed already. He remains one of the most loved little boys in the world. An adorable chunker! 

I know nothing of babies. But somehow, all the women in the family seem to know a great deal so most conversations this past year have gone something like this:

Sister-in-law: “He is growing his second tooth.”

Me: “…Oh? Is it…the right time for him to do that?”

Younger Sister #1: *in tones of great disgust* “Of course it is!”

Younger Sister #2: “When else would he grow it?”

Sister-in-law: “He is walking now.”

Me: “…Oh? Isn’t it a little soon for that?”

Mom: “No, this is about when they walk.”

Aunt: “Yes, definitely within the right time.”

Sister-in-law: “He is eating solids.”

Me: “Ah, well, that makes sense.”

Mom: “No, actually, it is unusually early for him to eat as much as he does.”

Younger Sister #2: “How do you not know this?”

IT IS ALL AMAZING TO ME. BUT I DO NOT PRETEND TO UNDERSTAND ANY OF IT. 


Nephew <3

My nephew was born yesterday!! He’s the cutest little chunker ever. (Over 9 pounds!) Both my sister-in-law and baby are doing well. I got to hold him today and he is so precious. With 2 loving parents, 9 aunts and uncles, 4 grandparents, and a great many more great-grandparents, great aunts and uncles, first cousins once removed, and second cousins (not to mention all the friends and acquaintances of the above named people) to dote on him, I challenge you to find a more loved little boy right now! 

Welcome to the world, Baby Bucky! We’ve been eagerly awaiting you. 


The Greatest Shower

My sister-in-law loves the movie The Greatest Showman, so for her baby shower, my sisters planned The Greatest Shower! They did an amazing job. Everything was super fun and creative. Check out some of the decorations!
