Wahoo New Baby

One of my eleven sister in laws had a baby, which is wahoo exciting! A new nephew/cousin I was so excited to see, my husband suggest a trip down to see him, instead of waiting for the next time we HAD to go down. I was so excited my son even wanted to see him. (We left little sister at her grandma's.) He was adorable. I never wanted to give him back, well unless he started crying.
Now one may wonder why I was so excited. Normally I don't make special trips to see new babies. The only thing I can think of is because I won't be having another baby for at least another two-three years. I can barely handle my two right now, I need the MBA to be finished before any planned additions. But I'm in the thick of things, I've been a mom now for 5 years, and there doesn't seem to be any let up for another 2 decades. (No I don't plan on having babies for 25 years, but I'll have kids in my house for at least that long.) My life with children is chaotic, and I've accepted where I am for the next few decades. So I guess I'm finally at my life I want to hold the new baby, and that I think pregnant women are cute. I'm doomed. None the less, look how cute he is...
That and maybe he took me on a trip down memory lane. He is a February baby boy, first child born to college students, a wee short 14 months after the wedding. Yeah, sounds exactly like my first born, they even share the same last name, and paternal grandma and grandpa. Just four years apart. Sure it was fun to be poor college students with our baby, and to go down a trip on memory lane but when we got in our car and drove away, I was ready to return to my reality. Even if it includes being married to MBA student. Yeah, one day I'm sure I'll look back to now with fondness, but right now not so much. He was so cute though. So teeny! So cute.

By the way, I'm very proud of the fact that I'm about to have a dozen sister in laws. People have a lot of things in a dozen, like donuts, but who can brag of having a dozen sister in laws. I feel like its a great accomplishment, even if I had nothing to do with it. How many people do you know that have an even dozen of sister in laws? Name them come on.


  1. You are right, not many can say they have 12 sister-in-laws. If my life had turned out differently I would have been able to claim and even 12 too. Now I know what I am working towards...13 sister-in-laws!!!

  2. Ohh, I feel special like one of the 12 dancing princesses! (love the barbie version of this story on DVD).
    He is so scrunchy I want to do down and see him too, just so I can pinch his chubby cheek!
    The kids were excited that he was wrapped in the blanket they helped make for him, tractors and trucks!
