I’m already an aunt to my husband’s nieces and nephews, but my baby brother’s wife is about to give birth to their first child. Their little boy will be the second grandchild on my side of the family, so it’s all very exciting for us. I can’t wait to see his little face and see if he looks like my brother. And it’ll be so fun and touching and heart-wringing to see my baby brother with his own baby. I already cried when I saw the 3D ultrasound pics (where he does look like my brother, by the way), so I can’t even imagine what I’ll feel when I see that precious child in person.
I’m already looking forward to seeing my son and nephew playing together. It’ll be a while, though. Those first few newborn months are so tough, what with the not sleeping and not eating and complete life change. And most of that time the little bundle of joy that is the reason for those changes is completely oblivious to what’s going on around him. Please pray for my sweet sis-in-law and brother as she labors to deliver their first-born and during those first few difficult months.
Look how cute they are!
