Ayyyiiieeeee!!!!

I'm an auntie again!!!

And, for the first time for me, I have a NEPHEW!! How cool is that??? My sister and her new baby boy (squee!) are doing fine after a really REALLY fast labor (par for course in my sisterhood) and I can't wait to head up to her hospital tomorrow morning with a tiny blue outfit... Too bad I didn't keep the one from her first pregnancy... I was SURE she was having a boy that time, and actually bought a boy outfit! Yeah... enter my niece. This time, I was SURE she was having a girl, but didn't buy anything. Thank goodness, or else I'd be returning yet another gift!

So. I got to share the news with SOMEONE (ones...) and I am just so excited!!! I can't wait to see little Ryan...

I'm off to wash oodles of baby boy clothes from my basement... Ahh.. memory lane will surely make me cry tonight...


Edited to add: Isn't he sweet?? Such a little doll. He looks JUST like his sister did, too! I had a ball last night, washing all of the tiny boy stuff. I'm going to organize it before I pass it over to my sister. I hit Target on the way to the hospital and they were having a winter sale!! Newborn stuff for 2 and 3 bucks each!! :) Totally made my day. (Of course, I just HAD to buy Corinne a cute new spring dress and socks... ahem.)

I'm new to your blog and I love it! What a fun bunch you are!

Congrats on your new nephew! I had the last baby so it's been a looooooooong time since i got to be auntie.

Oh and I was reading down in your blog and can't believe there are websites criticizing John and Kate. CRAZY! I love that show. I think they're amazing. Imagine having 6 two year olds?! NOPE I can't and don't want too!

Ohhh...YIPPERS! That's so fun. We have SO MANY girls in our family. I have ANOTHER niece on the way next month. I just passed along all of my girl clothes to my brother and my sis-in-law because my next baby will be a boy. =)

Congratulations on your new nephew!

Oh! That picture looks like you're holding a tiny doll, how precious!! That's so nice of you to pass on all of your baby boy things. When they are so little like that their clothes stay brand new looking and they usually grow out of them so darn fast anyway. Congrats again! BTW, what does your "baby" think of the new addition? She looks a little tentative in the picture! :)

So sweet! Congrats to your sister, and to Ryan's auntie too.

PS: Babylust just struck me, and hard, after looking at that picture.

Tracey said...

Oh, Corinne was so excited to meet him! She kept kissing him and sang Happy Birthday to him twice! She was not in the mood for a picture just then, but was totally fine with me holding him (which shocked me!)

Christina said...

Aw, congrats! And you're right - you do always pick the opposite gender!

Corinne's hair is adorable in that pic, too.

Ruby said...

Aw! New babies are SO lovely!
And I've heard that San Francisco is a really beautiful city - I hope to see for myself before too much longer.

Debbie said...

Congratulations Auntie! Isn't it fun having nieces and nephews?

Lis Garrett said...

Ahhhhhhhh . . . . .

Congrats all the way around!

PS - I finally saw two episodes of John and Kate last night on TLC. Oh my goodness!!! Yeah, I can see why she might be a little cranky. I'm cranky, and I have only THREE kids!
