The Aunties Part 2

Today I am back at work! More on that later… but this weekend it was round 2 of the aunties! The weather was amazing. There was pool time, long walks in the sunshine, barbecuing, shopping, nails, baby cuddles galore, strolling the stroller, cooking, beer, champagne, pizza… basically everything that makes me ache to live near them again.

It’s amazing what watching other people love your child feels like. It makes me love them even more.

Having guests is a bit exhausting. It’s a lot of cleaning and running around and yadda yadda yadda all while handling the baby’s eating and sleeping schedule, making sure we have enough diapers, checking what time it is, worrying he is too hot out in the world on the sunny sunny days, the list goes on. Juggling and balancing and living-in-the-moment-palooza.

I am very tired, but I am also so grateful for the wonderful women in my life. Like bursting with gratitude. It is a great way to start a work week.

  1. Speaking as an Auntie – there is no greater joy I get then seeing my little nephew grow and learn things. His smile is the most precious thing I have ever seen, and he gives it so freely. I can’t believe in a few months he will be 1! He’s turning into this teeny tiny person, and I can’t wait to chase him around the park and take him for walks once he’s walking and a little older. Not being with him all the time means that every time I see him there’s differences in him. Like teeth! Being an Auntie is pretty awesome πŸ™‚

  2. Oh hey! That’s me πŸ™‚ Me and Gabe! What an amazing weekend this was – thank you so much for having me and letting my smother your child with love! Aunties unite πŸ™‚
