My little nephew was finally born last night at 1:03 AM. He’s a beautiful boy, which I would love to prove with a picture, but I forgot to ask the parents for permission to post one. So you’ll just have to take my word for it.
I stayed up last night waiting for news of the little one’s birth. My brother texted a picture of his firstborn and I just stared at it. There’s something about seeing a much loved family member for the very first time. I was so excited that I stayed up for a while and then called my mom to get more details. And then I stayed up a while longer. Despite the fact that I have my own little one that wakes up no later than 7:30 in the morning. I knew I would be hurting today.
And I was right. This morning I hurt very badly and got one of those exhaustion headaches. My son, on the other hand, had all the energy in the world and set out to destroy my house. I present to you Exhibits A and B.
You should see what he did to the sofa.
But I let him have his fun because he would be trapped in a car seat or stroller later in the afternoon while we visited his new little cousin. I also texted my brother one of these pictures so that he would know what he has to look forward to.
I’m so happy for my brother and sister-in-law. They’ll be fantastic parents.
