On a positive note, I am a proud auntie! My sister had baby Joe on September 17th, he was a small 9 lbs and 14 oz. As most of you know my sister and me are very different. She has light hair, I have dark. She is short and I am tall. She has an extremely high pain tolerance and I have no pain tolerance at all. She will probably take this opportunity but I will beat her to it to tell the story of the time I laid in the middle of Walmart bc I stubbed my toe. I just want to give props to my sister for her natural at home birth. She is not only the coolest but now the toughest.
Since taking the title of aunt my perspective has completely changed. I used to think babies all looked the same and didn't understand why people even bothered to send pictures. Now I can't stop and no one is safe from a daily photo of Joe. The only thing I haven't come to terms with is the fact that I have this responsibility to help prepare this child for something I haven't figured out yet.
It is all so very exciting. My sister has never looked so gorgeous, Loren even tests drives the strollers and my parents I have never seen look so proud.
The only disappointment I can think of is he is isn't chubby with freckles and red hair like my sister always said she wanted her child to look like.
I love you sissy! I am so proud of you!
