|My 5 nieces in nephews, Thanksgiving 2013 with my Mom and A1.|
Yes, I'm the cool Aunt who buys mustaches for the kids.
|Then nephew Alex joined us in February. This weekend was |
not only about his Baptism, it was also about half our family
meeting him for the first time--including all of this cousins.
Who LOVE babies.
|Which meant lots of cute photos: Alex with cousin Gala|
|Alex with cousin Noah|
|I think the boys love having another boy in the family--Aidan pointed out|
that now the boys are tied with the girls (I am 1 of 4 kids: 2 boys, 2 girls;
each of my siblings has 2 kids: 1 girl, 1 boy)
|Savannah was so excited to have some big kids to play with--her|
baby brother does laugh at her now, and roll over,
but he isn't as fun as these monkeys: Syd and Aidan
|Gala, Syd, Noah, Savannah|
|The girls: Gala, Syd, and Savannah with her Dad--my |
brother is such a good Dad. It's been interesting
to watch my sibs become parents.
The time with my family was wonderful; coming back to work after 4 days off was hard, but I have a 3.5 day weekend this coming weekend, so NO COMPLAINTS (the Board owed me 5.5 days off after all the hours I put in covering vacations during Summer Reading, so lots of long weekends!)
