Baby Fever on Steroids

5 Jan

So I mentioned in my post yesterday that my oldest brother and sister-in-law just had their first child yesterday. (Woohoo!) Baby J we’ll call him. He is so freakin’ adorable that I’m tearing up right now after looking at pictures (which I’m not going to post here for the sake of their privacy). I wish I was going right now to see him instead of having to wait almost 2 months! (They live 16+ hours away from here and not near a cheap airport.)

I was technically already an aunt because Travis’ sister has a son. And while I love him and definitely consider him my nephew, he’s 12 years old. So this is the first time I’ve experienced being an aunt to a newborn and it’s the first baby on my side of the family.


Anyway, the birth went fine and Baby J was born at 11:40 weighing 6 lbs 6 oz, 20 inches long. And he’s really cute. And my SIL didn’t even look like she gave birth, she’s so pretty.

So of course, this gets me even more excited than I was before to have kids of our own (though I’m sure I’ll look like a hot mess after giving birth). And I was pretty excited before, so this is getting dangerous. Lucky for Travis us, I still want to do a marathon before having a baby even more than I want to have a baby right now. So the plans have not changed. I’ll just have to live vicariously through my siblings for now.

Are you an aunt or uncle? How flippin’ excited were you when your nephew/niece was born?

    So exciting!! I am not an official aunt – but there are two lovely little girlies that call me Aunt B and I do love spoiling them. Just the site of their adorable little faces makes me so happy!
    Much love,
