Lots to Celebrate

June 23rd, 2008 Posted in gratitude

Our family is growing so fast — our extended family, that is. July is a good month to celebrate all sorts of personal family holidays — weddings (ours!), birthdays (so many!), and now, even new births (Bean!). I was just talking to my sister-in-law about her toddler’s upcoming 3rd birthday party, in July. Amidst all the bustling back and forth and planning and birthday invitations to send out, the main thing that I look forward to is seeing the little guy again. This year, they’re having two separate parties — one for the little kids, and one for the family, so I’ll be seeing his cute little face at the family event. That kid has stolen my heart since the day he was born. I held him during the first 24 hours of his existence and I knew he was destined for greatness. Auntie Helen can spot one as quick as day, I tell ya. Now, every time I see him, we have such a bond that it just makes my heart melt. He takes my hand and he leads me places, and demands, ever so politely, that I play with him — trains, legos, blocks, whatever it is. He just wants my undivided attention. And he so gets it, every single time. So cute. I lubb him. He’s going to make a great big brother, and a great cousin to our Baby Bean.
