my new title
“so, what’s new with you?”
“i’m an aunt!”
i don’t see my enthusiasm dying down any time soon. beautiful Caris Maryann is so adorably perfect i can hardly stand it!
my baby sister has a baby, now, and it’s still hard to believe we’re not kids anymore. but kel and jared are ready for parenthood. just look at the thrilled (and exhausted) new parents, eager to take their precious bundle home.
of course everyone is head-over-heels for her. grandpa dean, uncle b, great titu, and even willow can’t get enough.
even surrounded by all that adoration, it’s hard not to think that she deserves to be cuddled and loved by another pair of arms that will never hold her. admittedly, my niece’s arrival has been a sweet-and-sour emotional ride for me…..but as always, God’s grace allows the overwhelming joy not to be diminished in the slightest by the accompanying sorrow. i have no doubt caris will grow to cherish her titu‘s legacy as we do.
just so long as she knows who loves her most. judging by her cute onesie and emphatic fist pump, she does.
so that’s the most exciting thing to happen to me, lately. thanks for letting me share.
