My Favorite Title…

Is that of Auntie!  I’m the proud Aunt of 8 1/2 nieces and nephews; the little girl on the way is going to disrupt our equal boy:girl ratio, but I don’t think anyone’s going to complain :).  If you know me you know that I LOVE babies like a fat kid loves cake, but throw in some of my genetics and that love quadruples.  Unfortunately, so far my siblings have failed to bring a child into this world that looks like me (even my twin, I mean, come on!), but gosh darn it, they still manage to make some pretty cute kids.

I’ll probably be sharing more of my family from the last six or so months, so for now I’ll kick it off with my little Claire.  She recently cut some teeth and is starting to crawl!

She is a very picky baby when it comes to people (I wonder where she gets it…*cough*), but seeing as how I look just like her mama, I’ve been told that I’m probably her 3rd favorite person in the world.

This face was not staged.  She seems to get a lot of pleasure from other people’s pain!

This next little monkey is who I get to see (along with his two younger siblings) TODAY.  As soon as I pack my suitcase (I never fail to do it mere hours before I leave for the airport) I’ll dream of their sweet little faces that I get to tickle and smooch oh so soon.  These rascals live in the blistery state of Minnesota, so today I went out looking for snow boots, only to discover most places aren’t carrying them anymore since Houston’s winter is practically over.  SO, I bought rain boots.  At least they’re waterproof, right???  I plan on wearing them over 7 pairs of socks.

So please forgive me if I taken a little longer than usual to respond to any emails for the next week.  I’ll be getting my snuggle on (and chasing, swinging, building snowmen while trying to avoid frostbite, reading, wii-ing, hiding and seeking, and other such games).

    Oh, and I tried to find gloves a few weeks ago and instead found a bunch of bathing suits…seems as though Wilmington thinks winter is over already as well! I hope you don’t freeze this week!!!
