I Became an Aunt Today

And I am absolutely in love.

This is the baby that we’ve been waiting on since before I threw his mom a baby shower last month. And he finally arrived this morning!


It was a long night, when her water broke around 7 pm on Thursday night. Staying up all night doesn’t make for the best photos, but I think it was worth staying up to get them!


He was gorgeous. Beautiful. Great eater and great crier.


Dad can hold a baby and work his iPhone at the same time – he’s gonna be great at multitasking.


He’ll be a shortstop for the Redbirds in no time!


Like I said, he has some great lungs on him!

I have always been jealous of my friends who have a niece or nephew to dote upon, to buy cute things for, to hug and kiss at holidays, and see them grow up. Well, I have joined the club. The minute we heard him give his first big cry, my heart swelled and I loved this kid so much I thought it might burst. I held him for a good part of the afternoon, as her friends came and went, nurses popping in and out, lunches brought and eaten. Simply, I love our little nephew so, so very much.


  1. Congratulations! Being an Auntie is one of the best jobs in the world. I look forward to hearing about him as he grows up and watching you love on him. Enjoy every precious moment.

  2. Congrats Auntie Jessica! You're going to absolutely love being an aunt - it's the best! What a beautiful little guy, too! What did they name him?

  3. What a sweetheart! Congratulations!
