The sweetest gift in the world had to be a baby. On March 11th my big brother and sister-in-law welcomed their first baby into the world. God is good, and I was blessed enough to be there when little Owen finally came out to high-five us all.
The adorable new mom and dad. How she can give birth and look gorgeous at the same time is a talent that I hope to have one day.
He is beyond precious and it is true what they say; you feel as though your heart might explode with pure love. Pure, sweet love that runs out your ears, nose and eyes you are so filled with joy. Too graphic?
Just in case you aren't a follower of the blog JL&O, allow me to introduce you to Owen Daniel. He is going to be the coolest kid around, because he has the coolest parents a kid could ever dream of having.
Besides having a nephew (am I really grown up enough to have a child call me, Auntie??) the next best thing about this new bundle of cuddly love is seeing my big brother become a dad. BF and I received a message from the new dad just last week saying how well they are doing with their new little pooping, eating, sleeping machine. He figured it would be an easy adjustment for his wife since she has managed him so well for so long. And basically, aren't we all just eating, sleeping, pooping machines? Come on, let's be honest. All together, "YES!"
I'm very proud to say that BF and I now have a brand new roll as a married couple - we are now Uncle Doc and Aunt Lulu. As Monica Gellar once said, "I'm your aunt, Lulu. I will always have gum."
