A few weeks ago, Seester had a baby, her first. I have been DYING to meet my new niece, but you know, four kids, long drive, nursing baby ETC has delayed my trip for a few weeks. (A few very long, very sad weeks– it must be mentioned– because seriously. My sister had her first baby. I NEEDED TO BE HERE.)
So, we’re here. We realized earlier in the week that our kids had a long weekend. David did some fancy footwork at his j-o-b, and we set off. I’m sitting in my mom’s living room right now! Hi from South Dakota!
It was so worth the drive, you guys. SO WORTH IT.
Seester is a mama now! And Olive has a new cousin only a few months younger than she.
And you guys? This baby? HAS HAIR. I’ve never birthed that type of creature myself, so I might just steal this one when it’s time to leave. Or offer my sister a 4-to-1 trade? Or buy Olive a wig?
I’m in love.
You know what’s weird? This baby looks a) EXACTLY how I pictured my sister’s baby would look, b) familiar to me somehow and c) also how I always thought MY OWN babies would look. And yet my own babies? Looked NOTHING like I imagined and did NOT look familiar to me at all when they were born. Odd, huh?
