We had planned to go last Friday but were all ill… but FINALLY we got to meet cousin/niece Sophia! Two weeks old already!
It was a beautiful day, the area where my brother and his wife live is just gorgeous but not as gorgeous as their baby! What a little charmer and like a good baby, quite the nursing machine! Like every mother I think Victoria is wondering… “Is this normal?” What a darling. I’ll try not to gush further but needless to say we were smitten. My kids must have given her 100 kisses each. I just couldn’t believe we were sitting in their living room – cousins together. Surreal.
Just a smidge under two hours away, I imagine there will be many trips back and forth in the future. I mean, there are 3 girls all 3 years and younger. I hope they will be the best of friends. And don’t dismiss Aidan – he loves the ladies… and babies, wow, he loves babies!!!
We went to the park, and I can’t to visit in warmer weather as there is a lake, farmers market and out of this world community gardens… bike paths. It’s a lovely area to be a stay at home mom with your first baby. Pack baby up in a cozy stroller and go enjoy it all! What a special, memorable time in life. We only got a tiny taste of it as it was pretty cold… but we’ve got lots of memories to make!
I will never forget the day I held my brother’s child.

In the meantime I don’t know if I can resist an Adventures in India post if you know what I mean…
